A let down
The description of the notes on the website/app did not match the smell nor the card that comes with the fragrance. Smells like something an old man would wear. But not the cool old man with a yacht with 20something year old girls around him. But smell reminds me of an old man who hates his life.

On Par
My experience of this fragrance is so similar to the description it’s uncanny. The first few seconds after the mist hit my skin I was excited, intrigued, captivated. There is something exhilarating and even a bit mysterious in the experience of those first few minutes. As the scent faded it became much more spicy, earthy and grounded. I caught slight whiffs of the clove cigarettes smoke in my college years and in a way I was reminded of the days when I was a bit more wild and untamed. Before I traded in my dancing shoes for something more practical. That being said, not my favorite offering from this perfumer but nice for an afternoon of reminiscing.

I sprayed it once to see how it smelled. I literally gagged and had to take a shower after to get the smell away from me. Smells like cheap old cigars in a water damaged cedar closet. Not great. Would not recommend unless youre trying to repel people.

There is something in this scent that is very off putting to me. Not sure what it is (olive leaf?) but it smells almost fecal. Not even gonna use it for a room spray.

In love with this!
It's like a campfire - so yummy! I am definitely getting a full-size bottle of this. I could seriously bathe in it. It's perfectly androgynous - smoky, flinty, with just a hint of vanilla, maybe tobacco. I hate the smell of pot but almost get the whisper of it here and actually enjoy it in this fragrance. I get none of those greasy electrical smells others have mentioned. This is my new signature scent - a beautiful and sophisticated fall/winter scent.

Upon further wear ...
UPDATE: so I sprayed it on again after taking a bath when I got home. The bath had baby oil in it so maybe that aided in the scent change, but I'm not smelling that metal scent now. In fact now it smells warm with slight fragrance of caramel and just a hint of spice. It's a very comfortable scent now. I'm back to liking it! Original comment: The only thing I don't like about this cologne is the metal scent. It reminds me of the scent from oiling a gun, which I've personally never liked. I also made the mistake of mentioning that to my wife. The first day she said she liked it. However two things another day I wore it. One, my young daughter is brutally honest with me and when I picked her up after school, she told me I stunk because I smelled like metal. Second, After I got home I showered and sprayed it again and had my wife smell. First time she liked it, but I asked her if she smelled metal, so she smelled it again and smelled metal and said she doesn't like it. So once you smell the metal it's over. I get why it's called Fat Electrician because when you first spray it smells like burnt wires, but like most Etat Libre De Orange colognes, it changes quick. Maybe it just has a metal scent on my skin and doesn't on others? I usually love Etat Libre De Orange, but this one is not for me.
