I only have a few fragrances that I like that have a synthetic quality to them. I prefer 'older' fragrances with real ingredients that are of the best quality. CH Men is one of the synthetics I like and I think it's well done. I like violet which is a key note here as well as saffron and there is suede with a vanilla in the base. I always get compliments with this fragrance. I shouldn't like CH Men and Chic but I do!
