If you're a businessman, this is a perfect cologne. It smells great, and I was quite surprised when I looked up the DNA of this. With its warm, spicy, sweet, and leather notes, it's an unique, very masculine scent, and it's a great cologne for casual wear and around the office. I can't wait until fall, so I can start wearing it again.

Enjoyed this smell
My go to in cold months

Love this scent! One of the best openings, for me, of a cologne. The sweet of the plum is intoxicating. Unfortunately as others have said it fades fast. The leather/pepper base of this lasts all day close to skin and I always seem to pull different elements out of the scent the more i wear it. Always get a compliment if they get close enough to smell.
Grew on me

Longevity & projection are poor.
The scent is slightly peppery, and warm.
I did not like it at first. As it dried down I began to love it.
If It had better longevity and projection it could be a game changer.
Still very good for short periods.
Juicy and salty with a tinge of darkness

This smells very fresh with a tinge of sweetness due to the plum. I's persistently wet, like when you first get out of the shower. This is not an overly sweet vanilla fragrance. The masculinity originates in the leather note, which gives some saltiness to the composition. There is a very small component that smells a bit smokey and noir.

Not a favorite, but it's decent. Longevity and projection are poor and smell is average.

I like this fragrance. It has such a nice subtle sweetness that I enjoy. The top note to me is plumb and it is so nice and mellow but stands out. Im wearing this as I am typing and it has been on me all day and has dryed down nicley leather and cinnamon. Just wonderful. However it only has about a foot of projection now and its been 6 hours. Its a nice fragrance and I cant wait to wear it in the heat of the summer. Worth a try.
This would be perfect if it lasted longer

This is a very sexy, masculine scent. Unfortunately, it does not last very long. If you don't mind reapplying this throughout the day, I highly recommend trying this.
Love it but doesn't last on me
by Colin on Feb 28, 2015
I really loved this fragrance when I first sampled it and immediately bought a bottle. Unfortunately, I found out that it doesn't last very long on me and becomes a skin scent after a couple hours.
My experience with this fragrance taught me that instead of jumping in and buying something quickly, it's best to get a sample so that you can try it for awhile before committing to buying a full bottle.
Smells like nature
by Michelle on Jan 9, 2015
This is a good soft yet masculine scent. It's spicy in the opening. When it dries down you can really smell the leather and the vanilla. I never smelled a more natural smelling fragrance. I can see why it's filed under "Romantic" scents. This will remind you of the great outdoors. For people in their mid twenties and up. If you're younger and can pull it off I say go for it!

The nose behind this is Rodrigo Flores-Roux who had done almost every John Varvatos fragrance, the Velvet line for Dolce & Gabbana, and even some Tom Ford Private Blend products. When I first spray it I get a fruity scent (probably the date fruit). It smells masculine. I also smell leather and vanilla. My friend said it smells like woods.
