After smelling it. I went to buy the bottle
What a wonderful scent! I tried this right out of the box as I was attending a very important event and all I can say it was AMAZING! Upon initial spray you get this lovely dry rose that just surrounds you, making you feel like you walked into a garden full or roses! Such a nice dry down where the rose doesn't disappoint, staying very up front where you can still smell the rose for hours at a time. this is a sleeper for real! not for the feint heart, this scent is for the confident man who is comfortable wearing a softer, less masculine scent but also a scent worthy of a signature scent. my advice is this: Most people love flowers, especially roses, this is the Opportunity for you to literally smell like them! take a chance on this one!
Soon I will order a bottle
