Spicy and Sophisticated
This was a scent that I was unsure of at first (being used to stronger fragrances) that grew on me very quickly. Above all, this scent is masculine and very versatile - it is equally at home as a fresh, refined "work" fragrance and a spicy, mysterious "date" fragrance.
The pepper and citrus definitely show their work - smelling it now I still can't quite decide if this scent is more spicy or more citrusy! This fragrance combines the virtue of both and rounds them out with some universal-appeal notes like jasmine and cedarwood for a fragrance that is sure to win compliments and female attention.
What's great about this cologne is what I mentioned before - its versatility. I would wear this cologne at work, on a date, with friends, to impress a special lady friend, or as something just a little extra if I feel like it. It has the same virtues as many "louder" masculine colognes - spice, warmth, and mystery - while being far subtler, fresher, and more complex. Despite being less dense than these types of colognes, it doesn't suffer much in longevity - without too much sweat or exposure, it should still be noticeable a good six hours or more after application.
Notting Hill For Men is a hard fragrance to pin down due to its complexity, so imagine a well-groomed man in a crisp grey suit and black tie. That's what this cologne is like - crisp, clean-cut, and presentable, but unmistakably wild and manly. Highly recommended.
