I found this cologne to be surprisingly nice. Others had mentioned a "fake" smell to it, and that it smelled as if it were synthetic.... I did not get that impression at all. I found it to have a very nice, warm mysore sandalwood scent, with quite a bit of lasting power. I could imagine how if one overapplied this cologne, it might be lethal - but used in moderation, it is quite nice.
The MAIN gripe of this cologne is its miserably cheap/shotty stomizer. For a roughly $70 cologne - I am stunned how cheap and ineffective of a top they outfit on the bottle. It does not sit perfectly straight, is akward to press down on, and BLASTS a shot of cologne at you - there is no possibility of modulating the amount of cologne coming out of the bottle.
Overall - great cologne, but if you get it - I recommend purchasing some atomizers from Charles and breaking the atomizer top off of the bottle, and decanting it into standard atomizer bottles. By doing this - one can modulate how much cologne they apply, so even with a powerful scent, you can spray just a bit, and get that perfect spritz of light cologne scent on your body!
