    Personally didn't care for this or the later one when it was launched. Glad you liked it.

    I love it !!
    Personally, I rate it very highly. It's funny how images/fantasies of perfumes stick with you. The first time I smelled this I got an image of West Sussex countryside in spring. Deciduous woodland, shady glades springled with bluebells. An image of early morning dewy grass and earthy, mushroomy, woody smells.
    This is how the fragrance smells to me. Natural, delicate woods, with just a hint of violet hovering in the background. I know violet is not listed in the notes, but that's what I am getting. This fragrance conjures up very fond memories and images for me.

    It is a nice, under the radar offering. Reminds me a bit of Giorgio Beverly Hills and Givenchy Gentlemen in the drydown.

    SMELLS ALOT LIKE GEntleman, but has a bit more of a peppery smell. i recently got a big 4.23 oz sealed in box from ebay. $40! definatly a great deal, as i love this scent. under the radar indeed!

    Thanks for reminding us of yet another underrated classic.

    I have first tested this during the late 90s and have very fond memories about its suave, understated, but also elegantly mature and almost brooding style, not to mention that it's almost a steal for its usual retail price.
