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.

Way too expensive
Sampled

This stuff smells good, but at $165 a bottle, that's way more than I'd ever spend on a single fragrance.

pricey but nice smell
Sampled

i do have to agree with many of the reviewers; it is a nice addictive smell and glad it does last but i cannot justify the price for something im not fully in love with

Decent
Sampled

The smell is something new, a little feminine and the sample is very small. I will use it up and continue with what i normally use, also a little pricey

This smells sour, or like it went bad. Not a fan at all.

Not for me!
Sampled

Wasn't a fan of the scent. Not big into cologne, but this was just too...sharp? Looking at the description, I need a few more fur coats and a hundred liters of Vodka to wear it.

Nice scent after It sits a while
Sampled

Overall a good scent, but it needs to sit on the skin for a bit before it actually smells good. The initial scent is very citrus and a little acidic, but once it combines with the skin it definitely takes on a more peppery / earthy tone that is nice.

Like cologne, but not the scent.
Sampled

I typically enjoy getting cologne samples because I find new ones I like. I did not care for this scent, very soapy smelling.

Very metrosexual
Sampled

I would call this fragrance metrosexual because it does not have the woodsy, musky or citrus notes that I would call a more "masculine" scent. I found it to be very strong, a little really does go a long way, and a bit too flowery and leaning towards most feminine scents. It reminded me a lot of Marc Jacobs men's (regular not Bang.) It's not horrible, but it won't be for everyone. Too pricey for the full size.

Good but not great
Sampled

The scent is good, generally. However, it is VERY strong, possibly too much so for an evening out. What is very strong? While opening the sample, my girlfriend got a little on her hand, and it was strong enough that after washing her hands three times she finally got the scent down to subtle levels.

Overall good. Having said that, the price is utterly over the top. It costs three times as much as my normal cologne. I am not sure what the profit margin is on this, but it needs to be a cheaper in price in order to sell.
