This cologne is as violet as they come. If you enjoy light, violet cologne, this makes for good springtime wearing. But it’s very one dimensional and weak. If I put ten sprays on at 9am, it’s almost completely gone by lunch. There are many colognes out there that do what Carven Pour Homme does, and they do it with more depth and better. If you like this cologne, go buy Grey Flannel for a third of the price. They’re the same cologne, essentially.
