The Italian fashion house known for its modern, architectural pieces takes the same rigorous approach to its fragrances. This stylish unisex scent is intense but also approachable, with a rich amber base. It translates from the boardroom to the bar easily and is sure to attract attention—the good kind.
This perfume is great stuff. I'm glad that Birchbox is pushing this towards males because it's usually marketed towards women. Personally, I don't think fragrance should be gendered but this is certainly an ambiguous, mysterious scent that will smell equally good on you and your girlfriend...or boyfriend :) Amber predominates, a smoky, almost incense like amber.There's some floral notes in there, hibiscus and jasmine, and I think the jasmine sticks out the most, but it isn't a loud jasmine like you would smell in Thierry Mugler's Alien (a far more feminine floral). Sandalwood is mentioned in the note pyramid but I don't smell it. What ties it all together is patchouli, which adds to the smoky incense vibe and gives the fragrance an almost 80's era 'powerhouse' vibe. It's interesting, smoky, sexy, unique, and as a collector of perfumes (I have around 50 bottles at any given time), I can tell you that this draws compliments like few things I own. You won't smell like everyone else. What occasions can you wear this to? I'm gonna say this is a date night/clubbing/romantic evening fragrance. I wouldn't recommend this for work (unless you are a woman) or to freshen up after the gym because it just isn't that sort of 'fresh' fragrance. Also, in extremely hot weather it could become cloying so it's more of a fall/winter scent. But if you wear it in those guidelines you will find a fragrance that is evocative of the night, full of mystery, romance, and intrigue. I highly recommend this for everyone, man, woman, and everyone in between!
This cologne doesn't smell at all like the sample. I now have this big bottle of cologne that I'll never wear. It's really not my style.
This cologne has the perfect scent! It is expensive compared most other colognes, but it has an awesome scent and you don't have to use much each time! It lasts as long time, as well.
I use this scent in my travel bag for work and am very sad that I am all out. It is a little pricey but the smell does last all day and you don't have to wear a lot. I will be purchasing soon!
This is by far the best fragrance I have ever smelled. Yes it is very strong, but you only need one spray. This smell will stay with you all day, and continues to smell better the longer you wear it. It is perfect smell for all occasions, and I will defiantly be buying another bottle if I ever run out.
its the perfect scent. costume national has outdone themselves. this is perfect for a regular scent or a night out. i believe that the notes are sublte but very masculine. loooooooove this fragrance
The first time I used it it was love at first smell... I'm extremely sad I used all my sample. I have asked my wife to purchase this as a holiday present... this scent makes me feel like a million bucks!.
This went straight from the box to my dopp kit. Not my everyday scent but smells great and works well with a change of scenery. Now when I go to it, the scent reminds me of travelling.
I like this fragrance - but it's not cheap. Fortunately, a bottle lasts a long time (if it doesn't, you're probably wearing too much).
Every time I wear this, I get complimented. My Fiance, guy-friends and their spouses and even my future mother-in-law think it smells great. I loved it before any of them noticed it and will that's a good thing, because the scent lasts longer then my other, non-parfum scents.
