    Own it and love it. A wonderful woody and spicy scent.

    Longevity and general performance for me is excellent. One of the longest lasting scents I own.

    Just today Ganymede and B683 has popped up at our niche reseller. I really don't like saffron, but your general opinion is too favourable no to give a chance...

    I've been enjoying this for quite some time. I own both the B683 and this one and actually prefer this slightly. Great persistence and frequently complimented. Need to watch the trigger on this a bit

    I absolutely LOVE Ganymede. Probably my most loved at this moment. I also love B683 but for the life of me I'm not sure why he made them both smell so close to each other.

    The only thing this reminds me of is a less tart Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir. Ganymede smells really nice, but I wasn’t expecting this. I will say I have nothing like it. A full wear tomorrow.

    Just wanted to let you know that the real Ganymede was a little boy who seduced Zeus with his beauty. If I remember correctly, Zeus, in Eagle form, abducted Ganymede and brought him to Mount Olympus........to do things.

    Well that makes it a bit special among your other scents!

    Really awesome scent. My brother’s wife bought it for him on his birthday and he loves it. I’ll get a bottle for myself one of these days soon.

    Does it actually have a leather accord?

    I believe the saffron gives it that leather-like quality. I do enjoy this quite a bit and have their other release B-683. They're very close, with the same play on "leather," but B-683 is darker overall. If I had tried both initially, I would have sprung for Ganymede instead of B-683. But what can you do! I'll still eventually get this, as I do enjoy it quite a bit.

    This is the third time this week this scent has come up - twice in conversations, once in these forums. Guess I need to check this out finally...

    Great scent. Really does an outstanding job of straddling the fence between designer appeal and niche uniqueness. Also lasts forever on me.

    Yes it is. I guess fruity/musk is my best try.

    For me I get a fruity/leather/musk smell from it. Absolutely worth getting!
