I shared the product with my fiance. I did enjoy getting a men's product and thought that was great that I could give that to him. However, the fragrance itself was a little "woodsy" for us and isn't necessarily the smell we enjoy.

Sexy smell
Sampled

This was a nice surprise in my box. I gave it to my husband, and I hope he wears it! It smells sexy.

Yum

I love the smell of this cologne and I bought it for a boyfriend years ago. I was happy to see that it smelled great on my new man too!

Strong and Spicey
Sampled

Personally, I am not a fan of this scent. When I first got a whiff of this scent I thought "It smells like cologne". Yes, I know, that's what it is... but I prefer to think that a cologne smells "fresh", "light", or "clean". The woody notes were too much for me. I picture someone in his late 40s or early 50s wearing this.

It was nice smelling. My boyfriend liked it too. I just felt like it was such a generic smell. They're wasn't anything new or surprising about the scent but that's its only downfall.

Yummy

Yummy.. that explains it all. I gave this to the boyfriend and he loves it almost more than I do. Looked at it in store, and loved the packaging. I see myself buying this for him in the future... has a modern touch, not so dry, very cool smell.

I think John should stick with fashion design and step out of the fragrance path. I shared this with a close guy friend who was also turned off by this scent. I would like to have gotten something in the box that benefits me, not something I have to (try) to give away.

I liked the scent, and my husband did too! If he didn't have so many colognes already, I would get him this for sure.

Gave this to my boyfriend, he never used it after sniffing and was not very fond of the scent.
