Arquiste Aleksandr

Like a weatherworn traveler coming in from the cold, this fragrance exists in a state of change. Inspired by Russian winters, love affairs, and the fiery novels of Alexander Pushkin, its aroma evolves from a crisp, citrus opening to a warm, woodsy finish. The result is a unique scent that’s made to inspire memories, whether you’re sitting by the fire, or off for a wintry walk.

Smell's different...

The smell of this fragrance was unlike any I've ever tried. It was almost the smell of what fire would smell like, not burning, just heat. In any event, I applied a dab to each wrist and felt as if it wasn't noticeable enough so I had to put a little more on. It's definitely subtle. This supposedly is unisex, but I can't imagine a woman liking the "fiery" smell I mentioned. I have smelled better fragrances and for the price I would choose something else.

Smells good

Cologne is nice, they all smell good but not really a difference maker here. Its got a nice wintry touch I suppose but not enough here to change my daily.

Debating if it is worth the price...

One of the major things to consider when pricing a fragrance is what it is... what does that mean? Is it a eau de toilette (alcohol based watered down fragrance) or is a parfum (oil based). Alcohol is typically added to parfums to stretch them out. Parfums cost more, requires less per application, and last on the skin longer.

This is a good fragrance, but I am not sure that the price point puts it in the same category as a Creed per se. I do like it and there is a good possibility that I may splurge on a bottle if it is a parfum.

Great Smell; High Price

I loved the scent of this product, and it only takes a few small dabs on your wrist to be effective. I wear the sample I received about once or twice a week when going to nice dinners, and it has lasted for about two months. I still have about half of the sample left. It is definitely a scent that makes you feel expensive. I do not think I will be purchasing a full bottle of this product because of the high price; however, I will probably ask someone to buy it for me for my birthday or Christmas. I definitely think this product is worth the money. I would love to have more than the sample I received.

Great, but...

Really great smelling cologne, but the price of a full bottle is really ridiculous. I get a lot of compliments when I wear the sample, but once it's gone, I won't be buying the bottle any time soon.

Love it

I really like the smell of this fragrance. Its very subtle and masculine at the same time. Smells nice without being overpowering. I would recommend it to anyone.

Just ok.

It has a citrus and flowery scent at first. After a while it has scent that reminds me of older people.

Great scent...not for me...

I'm sure there's guys that love this. I'm sure there's women that love this. I think it's to light. To crisp. There is no warm, or woodsy finish like they say.

Not for me

I received a sample of this in my box for February and it was a little too strong for me. If you are looking to make a statement or cover up some funk, this will surely do the trick though.
