Ernest Hemingway, exemplar of all things craggy and masculine, was the inspiration for this complex fragrance—but don’t expect notes of rum and tobacco. Featuring top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper, and black pepper, a heart of orange blossom, Florentine iris, and cinnamon, and a base of vetiver, vanilla, and yellow amber, this is a cultured cologne for a cultured man. Papa would approve.
Though I enjoyed the overall fragrance of the cologne, it is not some thing I would normally wear as it has a very musky scent. Maybe something more for winter, but not quite befitting my personality. I did enjoy the vanilla and Orange notes in this cologne.3
This stuff was great. Scent is nice and lingers, though peppery? I didn't think so.5
Would love a bottle but too expensive for me. I try not spending over $75.4
I liked the smell of this cologne (my girlfriend said it smelled too much like vanilla) but I liked it. Had a kind of mixed smell to it (I didn't smell the vanilla) but it was definitely a strong smell ... I don't know, it's hard to describe a smell, but I liked it.4
I was very pleased with this cologne and liked the smell of it very much. The smell lasted and didn't fade after 15 minutes. Although I find it to be extremely similar to Viktor and Rolf's Spice bomb. This being $125 a bottle and Spice Bomb being $75 I would get the spice bomb. If the price point was a little lower I'd be more inclined to purchase.4
I really enjoy the fragrance. The sample packaging is an added bonus as I like the mini-spray.4
Solid cologne for winter but too strong for me to wear in warmer weather...2
This is a very good product if it matches your requirements for smell and that kind of thing. It's not too loud or at least I don't think so. Everybody's body chemistry is different. Gotta get other people's opinions when wearing a cologne etc. then decide for yourself cause you are up and close, front and center...3
Fantastic masculine scent. I typically go for very clean/light scents, but the bergamont and juniper notes definitely hooked me. For me, it also rounds out in the end to be sort of sweeter, almost cinnamon-y. Wore on a date and got multiple compliments on it, definitely going to pick up the full size.5
Although the scent does get weaker, the initial smell of this cologe is very akin to bug spray. I'd rather not walk around smelling like OFF! This one just wasnt for me.1
