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.

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.

Delivers as promised
Fat Electrician doesn't draw many compliments, but it is a scent I wear for me. Nothing that would be offensive outside the initial spray, which has a hint of PVC pipe and a short-wired electrical socket. From then it settles into a light woodsy vetiver with vanilla and some incense. It is warm and comforting in this phase would be most appropriate for a fall scent. Performance is not particularly great but not terrible.

Essence of Catholic Church
Saw this on the CubaKnow channel and decided to try it. To me this fragrance smells like a Catholic Ceremony. I'm no longer religious but attended enough Catholic funerals to be reminded of it every time I get a whiff. Performance is so/so which is great because I wouldn't want this to last any more than a few hours on my skin, much like I wouldn't want to l sit in a Catholic Church for more than a few hours and when I can't smell it anymore, I'm kinda glad it's over. Score breakdown: 2 stars for depth and creativity of the brand 1 star because I found a use for the fragrance, to wear with my t-shirt poking fun at Jesus.

This smells more unisex to me than traditionally masculine. I love wearing it, but it also smells sexy on my boyfriend. Smoky sweet vetiver is the prominent note here, made greener by the presence of the olive leaf. A spicy green uplifting scent with a sweet creamy base. A unique and remarkable fragrance. Love this.

Not mundane
First impression; a newly remodeled interior of a home/office... drywall, lumber and fresh paint! Seriously! You then start picking up heavy green scents: vetiver, ivy, sage, rosemary... and whatever other green scent you never knew existed but smelled distinctly like the color “dark green”. After about 2 hours it softens up. Powdery, still green and still woody, dark ink? Paper print? Art museum? but... maybe like Chinese medical balm also? I strangely like it... but it’s is very strange! You’ll DEFINITELY be the only person who smells like this in your circle of people! I picture a lanky, bohemian Japanese artist with a top knot hairdo wearing this. It has a “mystique” to it. I can also see how some may find it “not for them”. Overall, glad I got it!

Unique, Polarizing, Arresting
This is an unconventional scent. I imagine that it might smell different to different people. I think it’s fantastic, personally, but that’s just me. It smells woodsy and floral at the same time. Reminds me of thjngs like cardamom, black pepper, orange, Garam masala, and allspice. It’s conspicuous, but not heavy. You don’t need many spritzes. It’s best in the fall/winter, but could probably transition to warmer weather really well, too. Also, my wife likes it a lot. 😉

Edgy vanilla
Enjoying this hip, edgy vanilla fragrance. Good for daytime casual use. It doesn't project very far as the scent fades a bit after a few hours, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. My friend liked it, but she had to come in for a hug to really notice it.

Never smelled an electrician, skinny or fat.
Really like this scent! I usually wear much lighter fragrances, so this is the opposite end of the spectrum from my "norm". It definitely has a pleasant tobacco/pipe smoke smell, but that's the reason i like it. Really lasts too, always enjoy putting on a jacket with this one it. Wife likes it too. Winner!

Old alcoholic
No, and No. I wore it out to a company party and had 10+ women tell me it was nasty, like an old man in a tobacco shop or an old alcoholic grandpa. It's hard for me to rate this as it wasn't worth the price to mail it. If you like tobacco or smelling like a cab driver in Dubai go right ahead.

I have never smelled anything like this. I have been wearing it off and on quite a while, and I love it. I think I will return to it in coming years because it is so unique. To be clear though--I've sampled things I didn't quite have the guts to buy and wear, even though I liked the scent personally. This is not that. I picture it being appropriate most anywhere.

You know that smell when your computer gets really hot? That’s what this smells like to me. The vetiver is the dominant note, but there’s definitely a hot circuit board smell to it that makes it edgy, modern and interesting. That sounds like faint praise, but this is a really cool scent. I love this fragrance house.

My fiancé got this scent and I instantly fell in love with it, it’s a very different smell from other colognes I’ve smelled and to be honest this one is the best one yet he’s tried. Obviously it doesn’t mean it’ll go with every men, it’s depending on your skins pH. Don’t say you hate it or that it stinks, give it to someone else, not all perfumes, colognes, etc are for everyone.

A hint of pot...
When I first spray this I swear it has a “marijuana” undertone to it, like someone sprayed perfume over their clothes afternoon smoking dope. Thankfully I didn’t give up on it after the first spritz because once it settles and blends in with my body it’s a pretty good scent. And even though it’s not overpowering, it’s lasts all day. Not a scent I am in love with, but it has its moments. It’s definitely a nice night perfume as it’s mysterious and sexy.
