The opening is on the brighter side, with heliotropes with whiffs of citrus, a subtle ginger (purple, not the usual version), with touches of wood - synthetic akigalawood according to the scent pyramid - that emanates whiffs of a light and soft patchouli,at times a bit like a smooth and extremely diluted oud.

Here and not a nonspecific floral undertone is present towards the end. A mystery "D" note is touted too...

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection, and four hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant summery scent, pleasant in a dull way - maybe that is the mysterious "D" note? 2.75/5

Some kind of sweet, floral note combined with a woody note, I'm not familiar with, for the opening. The floral note reminds me of a mash-up of iris, heliotrope, and ginger crushed together in a mortar. Rather one-dimensional. Wearable, nice for either sex.

A mineralic, metallic vetiver fused with cinnamon-dusted clove, over a mix of what smells to me like cardamom, ginger, and clary sage, which gives it a tea effect.

So it's kind of like a fusion of Spicebomb and Clive Christian's X for Men, a sort of hot-mulled-wine-meets-Christmas-tea, but with iodine-ish vetiver on top, making sure it never just smells like an overspiced holiday beverage.

Honestly, if I'd heard Run Free described like this, I'd assume it would be awful (it's hard for cinnamon and cloves to not smell cheap), but it works. It smells more expensive than it is, and manages to be just challenging enough to avoid being pedestrian, while being completely wearable. Thumbs up!

Mugler Cologne Run Free (pink) is rife with a darker, less spicy ginger note along with a really different wood note (a la "akigalawood"). The wood note is rather bright, clean and a bit soapy, lacking the sort of typical starchy, dry sensation of other woods (like cedar) that I'm used to.

Is the mysterious "D" note giving Run Free a curious subdued fruity tanginess? Perhaps "dragonfruit"? "Dewberry"?

Definitely unlike Mugler Cologne Come Together (green), but smells remotely similar to Fly Away (yellow). I like Run Free, but I wouldn't rush to wear it like I would the prior two.
