I received a sample of this while shopping at a dept. store and - GOTTA HAVE IT! Light, woodsy, and citrus at the same time. Very manly smell, yet light and clean feeling. I think the brand Cartier comes through with this cologne. I will be buying this shortly.
I personally do not like it.
Although it is not a personal favorite of mine, I was not completely put off by it. I would rank in this order:
Soir < Essence < Declaration.
Masculine smell without being too "perfumey"
I received a sample of this and it smelled clean and masculine without being too strong or perfumey. I bought this for my husband and we've both been really pleased with it! It's also nice to be wearing something unique that isn't a common line in all department stores.
I like to call myself a connoisseur of men's fragrance and I have owned plenty in my life. This however is the best fragrance I have ever owned. Thanks Birchbox!
Déclaration d’un Soir has a very rich scent that does not overwhelm. I'm usually pretty conservative when I comes to purchasing expensive colognes but I had to splurge for this one.
