I got this as a sample in my December Birchbox. I really like the smell, it's refined and classy. However, it's a little strong for my tastes, personally. As with many colognes, you need to be careful how much you use, since just a drop too much can make it very overbearing.
Less is more, and although it's not my style, I love the scent and will probably see if my father wants to rest of this sample since it really is a high quality cologne. I would buy this as a gift for someone in a heartbeat, but it's just not for me since it's so strong.
