For those that argue this has weak performance, I am not sure what is going on but I get beast mode performance out of this fragrance. I also have an older and newer bottle. Now, I cannot say how close this is to the original but this scent is great. Be careful with the trigger, I wouldn’t recommend more than two sprays. This is a strong, dry, and manly scent. But, it’s not old-manish or off-putting. This scent is alluring when worn with confidence, but it’s not mass-appealing. I love it, but buy with caution.
Fresh, bit soapy and smooth. I have the sample of the original one, and this one is very similar to the original , with one exception: it has stronger sillage and longevity than the original one, which costs lot more.
This one comes really, but really close to the original, in terms of scents, longevity and performance. It started with flowery and citrusy hint. Smells really feminine and elegant. After dry down, it smells bit spicy but also sweet and a touch of powdery scent. Beautiful frag. Good job PP :)
Again, this almost identical to the original. Sweet, seductive and mysterious scent with a touch of tobacco for more depth. This is wonderful frag and has better longevity than the original one, which costs lot more, and also somehow has better base notes scent IMHO.
Smells like the original. At first I smell jasmine tea, sweet but not coyingly. After that the scent turns into milky jasmine tea. This frag is nice but without depth, but still delicious. I like to layer this with another frag with oud, just to give more dimensions. Good job PP :)
