    Every lot of SMW will start with A35. It's the letters/numbers after that which truly matter.

    My 2011 bottle of SMW lasts 4 hours max. The general consensus on here seems to be that SMW is lacking in longevity. Every now and then somebody will have a freak batch that lasts all day.

    SMW had two different batches. One was heavier with the black currant upfront and the tea in the background. I owned a bottle of this and it always lasted at least 6 hours with moderate projection. The other batch is a tea up front batch with the black currant being much lighter. Projection and longevity is pretty bad. The black current first batches were also sweeter and more gourmandish. To be honest I wouldn't bother with it. Go out and buy a bottle of Al Rehab Silver and be done with it. Also look into Yang.
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.

    My SMW lasts around 6-8 hours. Just depends on number of sprays and layers of clothing I have on. For maximum projection & longevity, I spray one to the chest, one on each inside of the forearm, one to the back of the neck, and then a couple sprays on clothing. The more layers of clothing I have on, the longer this thing lasts. I think probably due to the body heat. It's my SOTD.

    My batch # is A3510M02.
