Warning! The top notes are tough to get past
I really wanted to like this parfum, but I have such a hard time getting past the initial sprays. From the time of application until it dries, all I can smell is spice and cinnamon and to me it smells awful! It dries nice and warm and the base really comes through into a rich fragrance. To me its clearly a mans cologne, I think saying it could be used by women too is pushing it. I actually received a few compliments on it at the office, but it was during the time the cologne had dried, lol. I can't imagine anyone liking the top notes of LX48. I've only used this cologne three times and I think it is going in the trash, I will not be purchasing anymore and I do not recommend it to anyone, except those who enjoy sneezing over and over and like having a nice little headache from the top notes! Enjoy!

Scent changes with time
At first spray, I loved it. 10 seconds later i got a whiff of old lady perfume. It reminds me of cheap pharmacy perfume from when i was a kid. Its not all bad but wouldnt say its my favorite. With each whiff you either get a pleasant smell or old lady perfume. Its unpredictable. I wanna like it but cant say id ever buy it.

Old lady smell? Great! (NOT)
If I wanted to wear something that made me smell like somebody’s grandmother or an old lady at church, I would totally buy this stuff! If I wanted to smell like a man, totally would wear this! However, I’m in my 20’s and I want to smell like it. Super disappointed, this was my first month using this service. I’ll stick with it though because I did get some compliments.

I really loved the smell of this one. I would have to agree with some that this is more of a mature smell. I got mixed feeling from my peers about this one, some thought it smelled great, some thought I smelled like a hippie. I will continue to wear it till it’s done because I still personally love it. The only bad thing I have to say is that it doesn’t last very long on me but I suppose that’s just body chemistry. Overall a great perfume.

My sister said I smell like bug spray
The website doesn’t state this, the card included in my order did but one of the scents used in this perfume is citronella- which is used to keep mosquitoes at bay. So this is the fanciest bug spray I’ve ever used. Let’s hope it at least works to keep the bugs away.

There is absolute no citronilla in this . It has 4 notes top bottom and middle. Maybe you were wearing some bugs spray when you sprayed it on?

Perhaps citronella or citronellol was used to create or accent the cedar note. It's a common aromachemical. It's also used to boost florals such as deep rose and even lavender.

Powdery, but nice
This is a moderately intense scent, that I'll wait until fall to really test out. The tobacco, leather, and pepper are pretty strong, with a bit of a powdery scent that makes it come across a tiny bit old-ladyish. Overall I don't dislike it, but it's too warm for the summer. Definitely a fall/ winter scent.

Intoxicating sweet smoky fragrance
This is my favorite so far. It's a warm, sweet scent like the almond or vanilla colognes. It has this sweet smell I can't quite describe but similar to almond and vanilla, with a smoky or woody tone. It smells so good, I put it on when I'm at home just so I can smell it all day. And I keep smelling my wrist when I have it on to get another hit of it. It's a heavenly scent. It's also a strong scent that lasts.

I liked this scent. Obviously, leather, tobacco, cedar, and oak moss are going to be strong scents. This is an evening scent, suitable for dates or evening events where you don't mind smelling intensely. Just a two to three sprays will do you well.

Not for me
LX48 is one of the better musky (at least to my nose) scents I have encountered. It is multi-layered, starting off really strong, then attenuates nicely over a few hours. Unfortunately, musky is not for me. My girlfriend reinforced this by saying "you don't smell like you". If you like strong, masculine scents I recommend trying this one out. If you are more the aqua/vetiver (maybe even unisex) kind of guy, then don't bother.

Not for everyone but smells wonderful on me!
This definitely is a vintage scent! But I love the faint smell of leather with a hint of citrus! This works wonderfully on my skin. I do better with musky scents than more modern “clean” scents. So if you don’t like vintage smells then this isn’t for you. But if you and your body chemistry does well with musky sexy scents and you want something unique then get this perfume!! This is definitely a 1-2 spray max and you are good for daaaayyyzzzz. I recently washed a turtleneck and the neckline still had the faint scent on it! I am for sure going to buy a bottle!

Like cuddles with a professor
I don’t LOVE it, but don’t dislike it either. Definitely not a go-to every day scent for a woman, but great for a cloudy day in a sweater. As it dries down on my skin, I smell incense more than anything else. The more I think about it, the more I daydream of cuddling with a sexy university professor in his study after he has been out chopping wood for the fireplace. Not overly masculine to me, but definitely not a feminine scent. The leather, oak moss, tobacco, and cedar make it lean toward manly. Will definitely try it just on clothes instead of on skin to get a different feel for the scent. I really want more of the violet. If spraying on your skin, one pump is enough. It’s fairly strong in my opinion.

Unless you're looking for a classic old man scent...
This was a unique cologne, but one I will never try again. The notes of leather and tobacco were nice, however when I tried it on, as masculine as it was, it just made me feel like a much older man. My wife definitely did not enjoy it. Thankfully, after a few months, this has been my only "miss". Would def recommend it thought as a late fall/winter scent for an older gentleman or older male relative.

Complex but good.
The two main scents I get out of this one are lavender and tobacco. In too high of concentration it can smell dusty. It doesn't seem to stick around long though.

Funny Lavender is missing from the note pyramid. Pretty sure the only floral note is violet. ; )
Helpful?

Not good...
I really had high hopes for this scent as it was the "Scent of the Month" for November 2018. Unfortunately it misses the mark. It smells very old and musty. It's also very strong. It has high sillage, but for this scent, is a negative because once you spray it on you want to take it off.
