Best cologne for my boyfriend
Finally found a new everyday cologne for my boyfriend that we both like!

Smells rich
I enjoy this one a lot, it’s smooth and mellow, you really pick up that rum scent. However, I expected it to be a little stronger.

Great scent for a great mood
This is by far my top favorite with Oddity as a close second. This scent is like magic, it always puts me in a good mood when I randomly smell it on me. Even after a workout you can still smell it. Might be overpowering to some so be warned but to me its perfect. It resembles smells and colognes prominent in the Arabian gulf so I think nostalgia might have played a vital part in this review. Overall would definitely order again

Strong Spicy Scent!
This cologne smells good but more than one spray is overpowering and will easily give you a headache. It smells best when it's allowed to diffuse a bit. Spray it on a shirt the night before you plan on wearing it and you will smell amazing! If you spray it directly on yourself, spray one spritz on your forearms and rub them together. Do not spray it directly on your neck unless having a headache is what you are aiming for. It's also a good spray for the house. I spray it behind a fan or in front of an air conditioner and that disperses it and makes the house smell great. I was not a fan of spicy scents but this has grown on me but now that I know how to use it properly. Now I really like it and will be more likely to try other spicy scents in the future.

Phenomenal Oriental Scent
I’ve been longing to try this fragrance and it does not disappoint. It’s a spicy oriental fragrance. I received my monthly delivery and this was the next in my queue. I opened up the packaging and got an idea of what this was by smelling the tube and container. I performed my morning ritual and applied the scent. My first impression was it was a typical strong oriental. I noticed it had a nice spiciness to it. Then I noticed the boozy notes. This isn’t a complex scent but it is unique. Throughout my workday I got whiffs of the scent that weren’t overpowering but nice reminders of the Bvlgari cologne. On my skin these little reminders were over 8 hours. This is a keeper! I will getting two of these in the future. One will be for current use and the other will be my backup. The perfumer is Alberto Morillas. He has not failed to hook me on every fragrance he has designed. This is a 9.5 in the category of oriental fragrances.
