Arquiste Aleksandr

Inspired by Russian winters, love affairs, and the fiery novels of Alexander Pushkin, this fragrance evolves from a crisp, citrus opening to a warm, woodsy finish. The result is an aroma that conjures memories, whether you’re sitting by the fire, or off for a wintry walk.

Very elegant

This gives off a scent that surpasses the "manly" smell most men go for. This gives a cleaner upper echelon type of scent. It lets people know you have class and know a good scent. It is very strong so I recommend you only dab the slightest bit and it will last you the whole day.

Enjoyed the warm, woodsy aroma of this cologne. The highly concentrated formula allows for one spritz to go a long, long way.

Add a little luxury to your routine

I noticed a lot of folks commented on the price. Let's get that out of the way first. This is an eau de parfum from a niche fragrance line. This type of fragrance is normally never under one-hundred dollars, but you do get what you pay for. It is concentrated, has great silage, and is blended from quality ingredients. It smells very natural. I love the play between the violet and the leather; I feel that these two ingredients in particular play back and forth throughout the day. Unlike a lot of leather scents, this one is softer, more evocative and less literal. Aleksandr Pushkin, the Russian poet for whom Aleksandr is named, is a national hero in Russia. In his short life, he had love affairs, attended the best parties, wrote poetry like a rock star, and went out of this world in a duel. I can't think of anything sexier than that. Buy this now! Light enough to wear to work every day, versatile enough for summer, spring, winter, or fall, and sophisticated enough for a black-tie affair. Get this, and you will get noticed.

Long Lasting

Very much enjoyed this long lasting fragrance. It has a nice clean smell. Would purchase if it was not so exspensive.

Like a liquid walk in the winter woods

Let me preface this by saying: I do not wear cologne. I generally find it headache inducing and overpowering, and on a couple of occasions it even irritates the skin.

So with that all out in the open, let me also say: This is an awesome cologne.

At least in part because it manages to evoke a sense of winter -- that "woodsy finish" they mention in the description is accurate. There's a real sense every time you smell it of the best aspects of cold weather, sitting by a fire, or being alone in the quiet after a snowfall.

A little goes a long way (IMPORTANT ADVICE for all men who use cologne!), but it does what I always assume cologne is supposed to do but rarely accomplishes for me, so I'm calling this one an absolute winner.

Expensive

Wow..this is an expensive fragrance, but it's quite pleasant and the wife loved it. I guess this would be a special occasion type of gift if she were to buy it for me.
