Ok, where do I start with this one? When this was first released in 2009, I was looking for a new fragrance. The sales woman recommended this to me, and it was love at first sniff. The opens up with a slightly powdery woody scent, that many people say is a little feminine, and I can agree, but this is still definitely a man's scent. You will not be disappointed with this one, and will always get compliments.
