Are you smelling yourself? *lol*
When I encounter a cologne, I look for 2 things... does it catch the attention of the female, and is it long lasting. This scent did just that. I found myself smelling my own shirt the next day, like... yeah, this is a keeper!!

It has an “ Of Age “ type of smell to it. A smell that says... “I’m a distinguished Man”

it's not the best: choose another rose scented fragrance.
the rose note is nice for the first five minutes then it gets boring quick. But what the most disappointing aspect about imitation man is that it doesn't evolve into something else. the fragrance is lame and boring. I highly recommend reflection man and/or jubilation man. these two are worlds apart in comparison to imitation man

Conflicted.
I really, really liked this scent when I first sprayed it - it came off as a spicy floral for my nose. However, the more I smelled it on the second and third go-round, it started to remind me more and more of "classic", heavier perfume scents that one might catch on an older, female crowd. I think it would really depend on how this scent sits on your skin, personally. I didn't hate it at all on me, but it just wasn't quite my "personality". Jubilation Man, but Amouage, is lot closer to my style.

My first Scentbird
This was my first Scentbird shipment. Honestly this product almost scared me off from receiving any more products from Scentbird but luckily they included 2 trial scents for me to try that are actually delightful. Imitation Man by Amouge smells like something a dentist would wear. Not a young hip dentist, an old cranky dentist that smells like aftershave and pain. Don’t waste your month on this scent.

My two cents
This is a really unique fragrance. You will only need one squirt of this. When I 1st sprayed it. It smelled like canned deodorant as it running out. Over time you can smell the rose fragrance. However I do like it black pepper and myrrh. The violet cleans up the leather smell. So I will have to give some time. I think I can pull it off. Plus it mines now. This not for everyone it is very strong. I have friends that would get a headache onsite if they smelled this. So to me this would work well if you are around people who are not sensitive to strong fragrances. Good luck hope this helps.

Can be challenging but...
This is still Amouage quality. There is a bit of iris that comes off lipsticky on my skin and it does have rose, which lasts throughout the wearing. However, those are backed up by more “masculine” woods in the base. Certainly a gorgeous and creative scent but not for every day wear.

This scent hits you out of the bottle as somewhat woodsy and floral. You get a punch of rose that remains with you throughout the day, but the woody undertones make it a masculine rose fragrance. It had some good lasting power throughout the day to the point that I got a good waft as I took my shirt off at night.

Different in a GOOD WAY
Definetly not the crowd pleasing, mass appealling type of fragrance that's for everyone. The opening is harsh but after 5-10 minutes it settles down to a sweet juicy fruity scent with a hint of freshness to it. A very artistic frangrance to my nose with great projection and longevity. My wife does not like it. But I love it. The kind of fragrance you have to wear with confidence.

First Amouage scent. This is excellent. Apply sparingly - this is very strong (0.5 to 1 spray max). Lasts all day, and even longer - can still smell it on my clothes over 2 days later. Definitely has a middle-eastern feel to it, with an 'attar' base and strong floral+sandal notes.

only if you have the confidence
The men and women over at Amouage have yet to let me down! although I have to ask "what are you implying by "Imitation Man"? hopefully that people will want to imitate me! If you want to smell like an Italian stud, than this scent is for you! if you like to wear over priced cheap designer colognes with the most prominent note being alcohol like "Adidas", "Kenneth Cole", "gucci" or God forbid "Axe"; then this one Is most definitely not for you! Rose is at the front of this scent and it's a very DEEP rose. The scent is very clean smelling and I might be bold enough to wear this into a office space, especially if I wanted to catch the eye of someone there... however I could see this being offensive in close quarters; as too much and you might smell like President Snow! I would go casual with this or a date night would be best. but again you must OWN this scent, you Must drip confidence to pull this off and say "WORLD! LOOK AT ME! I AM A LOVE MACHINE!" I was catching wifs of this beyond 12 hours! so be aware it's gonna take a shower to remove this.
