    Better than I thought it would be. I was pleasantly surprised with the spicy & fruity opening which then eventually dries down to a nice oudy amber. Groundbreaking? No. However not disappointed.

    Maybe I am nuts! But I did go nuts buying fragrances. No regrets mind you; I wanted more but the bottles I got filled spots in my (way too large) collection that seemed different. I have just about covered my desires without being (too) redundant...but I still want more. This must be some sort of sickness. I have enough to last several lifetimes.

    It's pretty good yes but i got bored of it quickly. I think it's "sample and enjoy" worthy but not full bottle worthy. I would never get bored of Dior Homme Intense or Dior Homme for example. It's on the top of my giveaway list and regretful blind buys.

    Hopefully you don't end up in the same boat as me though !

    I hope not! We'll see...

    Usually I like these kinds of border-line gourmand fragrances. This seems like something to wear in between Givenchy Play Intense and DHI, and when I'm not in the mood for something as sweet as Pure Malt.

    Just got my 5ML decant and have had this on my arm for a few hours. Easy buy. I hate Bond no.9, but I'll buy this for $150 from a discounter no problem.
