    Question What people say when you wear Yatagan?

    I like how different words i read about Yatagan:
    "gorgeous",
    "i have no use for it, my bottle is almost full",
    "I use it as bedroom freshener"
    "I wear it all year-around"
    "Its fresh because of celery, then, it´s very dry"
    "It's a leather saddle!"
    "It's stinky, girls hate it"
    "it' wonderful, my wife loves it"

    What people around you say about it?

    I've read a lot about Yatagan too! But like me, I think you need to get your hands on a sample & smell it for yourself

    Nothing - probably because they are too intimidated.

    I should add that Yatagan was my ex g/f's mother's favorite scent out of my WHOLE wardrobe. Maybe it's a cougar catcher?

    My wife surprised me when she said she loved it. The weather was cooler and she didn't recognise it from when I'd worn it in the summer. It certainly took on a different character. I love to wear it all year round and I get complimented on a clean and manly fragrance. Great juice!

    My wife: "You smell like a salad with dill". She likes salad and dill, so I guess this could be counted as a compliment.

    I tested this one today and the first hour is a very weird dry, resinous, green smell that is truly unique. After that i t gets better but never gets beyond average. Turin says it's a masterpiece I'm not seeing it.

    Does not smell very intimidating after the first few minutes. I think my wife is the only one who ever commented on it. Nothing exciting, something like, "That's nice...very masculine."

    I had a woman 10 years my senior ask me at a gorocery store what I was wearing. She took out out a pen and pencil from her purse and wrote it down. Found out during the conversation she wanted it for herself.

    Guys, Yatagan i could not wear because it smell is just like a herb commonly used here in Brazil in some medicinal remedies. For me it´s JUST like "boldo".

    "Together with litre, quillay, peumo, bollén and other indigenous plants, it is a characteristic component of the sclerophyllous forest endemic to central Chile. Its leaves, which have a strong, woody and slightly bitter flavor and camphor-like aroma, are used for culinary purposes, primarily in Latin America. The leaves are used in a similar manner to bay leaves and also used as a tisane, primarily in Chile, Bolivia, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil and bordering countries in South America."

    Lol,maybe. I can deal with people thinking I smell like a tree but I do not want to smell like the cheapest noodles on earth. I will have to find an interesting way to layer it before I can wear it to class again.

    Own it, keep trying to like it, but the celery thing is a bit much. Only worn it in public once or twice. Must try a serious road test and report back.

    My wife said that Yatagan reminded her strongly of the elephant or rhino enclosures at the zoo.
    She suggested I save it for those occasions we visit the zoo.

    No stories about Yatagan, but I did slighty overdose once on Tabac Blond extrait and an amercan friend of mine Carl said I smelled like a 17th century whore.
    We laughed about that all evening and he made wafting gestures everytime he came near me.
