MYSTERIOUS AND SMOKY

To me this is an OK scent, considering I was testing 25 other best selling fragrances simultaneously. It is very smoky/incensy and not a well rounded fragrance, but if that's what you like this will work. On my skin the performance was good but the scent itself is very puzzling - like walking down a dark alley that is filled with some kind of incense. Definitely has a mysterious element to it though.
