I get little BO in Declaration. Anyway it smells awesome. You should try Declaration Cologne also.
Original Declaration is best of the Declaration series to my taste. It used to be my favourite. Haven't been wearing it lately. I hope it won't become forgotten...

Great scent. One of my favorites.
This. I don't get the "body odor" association re: Declaration. Never have. It's too dry and crisp to remind me of anything animalic or sweaty. The cardamom is strongest at the opening, and paired with the bergamot it's gorgeous, but the drydown is all smooth, velvety woods and moss. Projection is iffy on me; many times I'm unable to smell it soon after spraying, but I'll catch odd wafts of it as the day goes on, and the lasting power is terrific. Despite the woods and spices, I find Declaration works best in hot weather; it's sheer and refreshing, with a bitter edge, and cuts right through the July humidity ala Terre d'Hermes or Eau Sauvage. (The base doesn't have enough warm, musky oomph to satisfy my fall and winter fragrance tastes, but that's my problem, not Declaration's.) One of my desert-island faves.Originally Posted by Slayerized
Also, Declaration accounts for a whopping 60% of all Cartier fragrance sales, not just the men's division. (I read this on Perfume Shrine recently and was rather stunned. I don't know a single person who wears it, and it doesn't get a ton of play here or on other fragrance boards.)
