My Ratings: Scent - 2/10. Overall 2/10.

This stuff has some funk! Opens with a citrus blast, floral notes, some bitter Vetiver, spicy wood, and musk. As it dries down the citrus, woods, and Vetiver all kind of fade away and you're kinda just left with this floral body odor smell. I've got a spot on me that I applied about 9 hours ago and all I smell is funk. I really, well there's no good way to put this. I hate this stuff. Musk just isn't my thing and I hate smelling like body odor.

Performance I can't even judge. It lasts a long time, God I hope it doesn't project well. I spent most of the day trying not to smell this stuff. I'd then reach to smell it to see if I was missing something, or if the dry down changed, but nope. That musk was always there. I had to look up reviews to see if I was crazy and I have no idea. Other people who review it seem to love this stuff. If I had to guess, Someone who wants a pungent vitiver with floral notes, then this is your Vetiver. Just don't wear it around me please.

My Wife's Rating: Scent - 0/10.

Technically my wife didn't officially rate this a 0/10. Instead, when I asked her to smell it she sniffed, then soured her face, and said, "Ew, No." While pushing my arm away. After that she refused to smell it anymore and said, "Why would anyone wear that?" She might have liked the initial application better than the dry down but I didn't want to push my luck with her and honestly didn't want to reapply the stuff for her to even check.
