    Have tried it and own it. Good for the price point - between $5-$10 for 100ml

    A little spicey, but good. You can't beat the price bro. Thallium and Thallium Sport is good too. Fragrancenet has all three of them.

    Where do you get it that cheap? The cheapest I have seen any of them is 17 dollar range.

    I ordered it, the similarities to TOF Chili got me interested so hopefully its good.

    Just as a follow up, to my nose it is very close to Muglers B*Men with some John Varvatos Vintage components thrown in. I prefer B*Men though. Good fragrance for the price.

    Never thought of that. Will do a side by side comparison with B*Men to see if I get what you get.

    Bump, part deux.

    Just saw this in Fragrance Outlet (didn't look at the price). Have any more folks had a chance to wear this yet?

    The Pure Malt comparison I read scares me because I was a big fan of it and returned the bottle (Pure Malt, on paper, should have been my perfect scent).

    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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Just to own it....spicy apple(baked?)like scent that at first I thought was OK, but then the more I had to smell it's massive projection and longevity I just couldn't take it anymore. Scrubber for me.
