    Thank you all for your responses. I guess I'll just pass on this one seeing as how it sounds like the opposite of what I want in my collection and I told myself I wouldn't buy another designer frag this quarter after my purchase of Opium Pour Homme...

    I have tried and I would buy it, at least more likely than the regular AMen.

    I like it but it's gone from my skin in 2-3 hours. $60 is not a bad price, but you should probably get Roadster by Cartier. While Pure Shot opening is icy cold, it dies down within minutes, Roadster is spearmint fresh for 5-6 hours.

    IMO it is a huge waist, BORING like a hell! I was actually expecting from this one some sort of Geranium pour Monsieur...what a disappointment!

    Same here.

    I find the actual scent to smell amazing. A good friend bought it and it smells awesome - however the longevity and silage is poor.

    I used to own Cartier Roadster and gave it to a good friend. What a mistake!! I guess that will be my designer purchase next quarter...

    Pure Shot is very good IMO. I'm keeping mine, but not my backup.

    Update:
    So I failed to heed all of your warnings and purchased Pure Shot. I will not say that I am impressed but I am happy with my purchase. Of course I get the terrible longevity and silliage from it but while it is there it actually does go through 3 distinct phases. While Pure Shot is definitely not groundbreaking, I believe it as well as Allure Homme Sport eau extreme are a nice change to summer fragrance options rather than the standard citrusy, watery, mainstream options available now.

    For $60 bucks IMO why not. Better then paying $95 like I did lol

    So... this can now be found on Amazon for $30 shipped... worth the gamble?

    Absolutely. I now own it, and like it a lot. The one knock on it is the projection/longevity is very bad. Very very bad. I overspray, and make sure to get it on clothing, that seems to help.

    No, not worth in my opinion. The thing is you do ask, therefore you like it and ask to quell thy conscience as you'll most likely buy it
    Whereas it's not worth to SOME of us here, to someone it might worth a 100 bucks and I can respect that.

    P.S. I really, really liked it when I sprayed it and it was cold outside, regardless it is a fresh, sharp fragrance.

    I think it is quite decent, it certainly doesn't deserve the hate it gets on here. Just don't expect anything similar to the others in the A*Men line.

    Only if you can get it for a low price. A good decent gym scent IMO.

    it's not even close to being as bad as some people describe it. It's worth 30$ for sure. On my skin longevity is decent for this type of fragrance (~5 hours) and projection is about moderate. At first i was under impression that projection is below average but i got compliments about the fragrance a few times at ~2 hours after application.

    I wouldn't buy this stuff again, even though I got it for under $30. This stuff is good upon application but dissipates extremely fast. I usually get about 2 hours or less and it's vanished.

    At that price for sure IMO even with it not being the best flanker in the series.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Didn't enjoy this one. Never a good sign if one doesn't even want to finish a sample. I'd rather use Ice Men than this.

    I like it as a post workout cologne. Fruit-chouli stuff is my bag I guess. Its not for everyone. There is a period in its evolution that reminds me of Aventus. 5 hours on me...strangely, one of my more complimented frags.
