This isn't my favorite fragrance from this brand, but it isn't the worst. It isn't too perfumed and overpowering. It does smell more like a traditional cologne. Oftentimes, I spray on some of these samples and think I accidentally grabbed it out of my wife's Birchbox by mistake. But that's not the case here. It does settle into a nice woodsy scent that makes it feel like a seasonal fall cologne without being gimmicky like Pumpkin Spice or something like that.
