As close to my perfect scent as I could find!
on October 27, 2011
I find, when reviewing scents or sprays, it helps to know a little about the person reviewing to get a better idea whether or not the item may suit you.
I am 23 years old. I trade the stock market during the day, and am a bartender on week nights / weekends. I have an active social life, no wife or children, and own between 15 - 20 colognes. What I personally look for in a scent is a strong, manly, yet sweet smell that gets the ladies attention. What I really hate in a scent is it being overly "tangy" or too citrusy/bitter. An example of a cologne I LOVE would be Ambercrombie: Fierce. An example of a cologne I dislike would be "Usher".
I first smelled this at the mall, didnt buy it, could smell it on my hands later that day, and decided I MUST have it. This cologne can easily be found in almost any department so I doubt anyone will have issues of buying without knowing what to expect. My opinion of a perfect cologne is 40% "sweet", 50% "manly", 10% "bitter". I believe this cologne here comes as close to that ratio as any Ive ever smelled. It has a nice "cool" aspect that women typically enjoy without being too "sweet" or feminine. That man-ness is definitely there and theres a very slight alcohol singe that adds that little bit of bitterness I mentioned. Truly an almost perfect balance of scents. I would say the age range on this is very wide and almost anyone can wear. The duration is about average lasting from 4-7 hours. A little on the pricey side in stores, so buying online is definitely the way to go.
