I didn't like it. It's not that it smells bad, but the pepper is so overpowering that bother me for a long while when I first tried it. I don't smell the rose at all, just a spicy, woodsy scent, very professional, very masculine, just too peppery (pepper-sprayish even). It is STRONG. If u have allergies or just don't favor overly string colognes I don't recommend this. I'll be sure never to include a cologne with pepper from now on.
