    I tried this today at osswalds, it smells great. Very unique and fresh. My only gripe is the bottle design, the tester was kinda dingy looking so if I were purchasing this, I'd worry about that. Other than that, this is an excellent offering from PdM

    Directly from Parfums de Marly:

    "The perfume boasts of top notes of Hesperides and moves on to become more sensual with the combination of amber and musk. All in all, the divine mixture of notes brings out an elegant and forceful signature. The scent contains aromas of citrus, pepper, iris, orange blossom, amber and musk."

    For me starts very peppery and spicy but then transitions into a soft and sweet but light floral with a nice musk dry down. Above average longevity on my skin. Very nice scent IMO.

    LOL, agree. Creed and Marly are both hilarious from this point of view (and well, to other points of view also).

    I'm very interested in Galloway--the notes sound promising.

    Has anybody else tried this?

    I'd love to hear some opinions if there are any.

    Tried this last month. Sprayed it on at Nordstroms and walked around for an hour while trying to figure out if it was one to buy. I'll say at first I really thought hard about getting this. I thought at first it was a very nice and fresh citrus/powder feel that became peppery in the middle stages. This is where I really enjoyed it. It almost had the same feel as Carthusia Uomo to me. Not identical..Carthusia being more woody.. but just the feel. What turned me off eventually was the floral and powder that seeped in late. It is really a strong fragrance and I felt the longer it was on me, the more amped up it got. I lost the pepper and it became a little more feminine. So this is where it lost me. Also, one a side note, I wasn't a fan of the bottle. Very heavy and awkward to me. Could get dirty quick(for those who care)...and the price was steep for something I thought was ok,.

    I owned it for a few months last year (had a used bottle). Nice fresh peppery scent. Not bad at all, but I did not get around to it much.

    The bottle does get dirty...I think it's the matte finish...kinda like original Kouros, which would do the same.

    What Chuck said and why I mentioned it in the review. It isn't a glass bottle. The matte finish is almost like a marble or a bathroom counter feel so, depending on where you store it, it would seem to me it might just get dirty with anything that may be on your fingers, even if its just slightly dirty...toothpaste, just hand dirt over time, lotions, etc.
