Even compared to, yes I am prepared for saying this, Aventus Creed ( dun dun dun) This scent beats it. For daytime office use or even night time, club, raves ( though it gets sweated off pretty easily). This is my scent. I love it. I found this in a sample set of scents from department stores and fell for it. I tried this intense version and its even better. I love it. The only thing I can complain about is its longevity. For me it is not as long lasting as I would like it, but with reapplications after lunch break I really don't mind. Still looking for a scent that beats this in my army of colognes, but I am having a bit of trouble. Versace Man does come close as its longevity is full on so, maybe that. This is still more fresh. Beats Knotting Hill even and that is delicious. This scent nails it. Super clean and fresh and unique, not overly powerful but not too subtle to get unnoticed. This is how I want to smell, and guess what. It is how I smell.
