It's got all a man's frangance needs: woody (cedar), sweet musk, mystic sandalwood and a bold accord of tobacco leaf (do not think of tobacco smoke, which is the complete opposite of matured tobacco leaves) and some other ingredients I cannot pipoint but make for a wonderful statement to any room you walk in. This frangance is NOT for the timid, discreetly introverted man. It's quite strong (concentrated as an old-swchool proper perfume-grade concentration), so be warned of using a *tiny* little whiff specially if walking into the office or any other indoor location during the daytime. Highly recommended even if it's not for everyone. Also, not designed to project any youuthfulness, but quite the opposite: This is for alfa males erring on the senior side. If you want to project an older, more serious side of yourself, this is the perfume to wear with a proper suit.
