I rotate all of the samples that I get via birchbox, and this one, by FAR receives the most compliments. I regularly walk into rooms and, inevitably, someone says "someone smells amazing." I have to say that it is a definite confidence booster and ice breaker when you walk into room to immediate compliments. Unlike others, I like this fragrance and have not gotten any negative "reviews" from others. That said, it is obvious one of the more 'powerful' cologenes because it literally takes about 5 seconds for someone 5-8 feet away to ask what's up with the great smell permeating the room.
