Although it is not a personal favorite of mine, I was not completely put off by it. I would rank in this order:
Soir < Essence < Declaration.
Masculine smell without being too "perfumey"
I received a sample of this and it smelled clean and masculine without being too strong or perfumey. I bought this for my husband and we've both been really pleased with it! It's also nice to be wearing something unique that isn't a common line in all department stores.
I like to call myself a connoisseur of men's fragrance and I have owned plenty in my life. This however is the best fragrance I have ever owned. Thanks Birchbox!
Déclaration d’un Soir has a very rich scent that does not overwhelm. I'm usually pretty conservative when I comes to purchasing expensive colognes but I had to splurge for this one.
Product is an amazing fresh and not so musky scent. Definitely smelled as though I just stepped out of an amazing fragrant box that was not so strong when I started using this fragrance. Believe I will definitely be changing from Jo Malone to Declaration very soon!
I know this is a men's cologne, but I love it. I am crazy about sandalwood and rose together. I think that it compliments both sexes. Some of the women's colognes are too floral for my tastes, but this perfectly balances floral and spice.My only con is that it doesn't last long enough.
Disappointing on many levels
I'm selfish...I like to keep my Birchbox for myself. So it's always disappointing to open it to find a men's product. My husband doesn't wear cologne, so I asked my brother-in-law to sample it for me. He said that it "offended my olfactories as well as my skin." It made him itch and sneeze. All of us agreed that we didn't like the scent, either.
Bought it for Myself
When I read the description of this scent I got giddy. When I used the sample I was blown away. I love trying new scents. I also wear a few men's colognes already so I'm not afraid of crossing the gender line if I really like the way something smells. I bought this immediately.
Very nice !
I gave my husband the little sample vial that I got in my BBox. I was unaware he used it one evening we were going out. Women literally followed him around and asked about it.. They said he selled fantastic. At first, I was jealous but he did smell so great that I ended up buying him a full size for Valentines'Day . It has become his signature scent! Love it!
Yup!! I would definitely date any man that wore this fragrance! Hands down! Smells like a man should! Actually I wish more men did!
