Some times the thing that confuses me most selecting my next cologne is actually reading the reviews. Some say a certain scent is their favorite and the best ever while others say (and this is the most used criticism to the point where I wonder if some people think it's the most horrible criticism they can come up with....."Meh, this scent is powdery, feminine and doesn't last two minutes. SO..having said all that to say this...this is my third scent with Scentbird and it is my least favorite, BUT that's not a bad thing. My first was Dark Rebel, my second was Bleu from Issey Miyake and I really loved them both. This scent is great but coming on the heels of two great month's worth it just seemed a little ordinary. I don't have the proper terminology like middle note, base note, blah, blah,blah....I can just say it smells a little spicy and a little woody. It's not too strong and it's not too temporary, although it might not last an eight hour day. If I had received it first, I would still have loved it, probably moreso since I didn't have the others to compare with. So, I can say it's not a bad purchase (I use it as my ordinary day cologne so that I can save the other two a little longer) but I have too many other possible selections to put this back in my queue anytime soon. For those who think my Dark Rebel or Gucci Pour Homme is too strong, this is similar and maybe more befitting of....you complete wimps. Just kidding, but if you like it to be all flowers and potpourri, this might not be the one for thee. See what I did there?
