Earthy and herbal scent..
Try a sample 1st..
Not blind buy material
It's a winner, blind buy with confidence, if you don't like it then the problem is you.
Sample first, buy later.
I like it a lot. But as usual, blind buy is risky. It's resinous-patchouli, slightly chypre.
But it shouldn't be too difficult to smell. If you cannot find it, smell Clinique Aromatics Elixir, which should be available at most department stores and perfume stores. Aramis 900 is close, though perhaps not as strong. If you like AE, you'll be fine with Aramis 900; if you don't like it, probably you should stay away from A900.
I agree is a risky blind buy. I think is a great perfume however. Try cacio's advice first if you can.
Bad girls don't cry but get even.
One of the worst scents to blind buy, especially if you are used to recent designer scents!

It is an amazing composition and I love it. That said, I will join others in recommending against a blind buy.

900 is an acquired taste, but I haven't smelled any recent bottles of it.
I have been wearing Aramis 900 since the 80's when I was a teenager.
One of only 5 fragrances I could never (ever) be without.
Most definitely a masterpiece.
Ignore everyone else, they're all drunk on Advocaat snowballs.
Hello Wirral Guy Maghull guy here and the answer is no. Aramis 900 is a great fragrance but it's a relic from the hairy chest days. So a sample would be in order as it is very potent.
