This is absolutely to die for. One breath it is sultry, the dry down of old candy melted onto Graham crackers...mmmm.. It's delightful. (Please do not be disparaging in comments if you don't desire a scent. There was a comment here that should be stricken!) I adore this will you and ypurs!!

I smell the oakmoss and some mineral compound that smells a lot like salt (with the occasional whiff of something really dry/dusty that reminds me of Andy Tauer's desert-themed perfumes). I get absolutely no flowers, no saffron, no amber, and definitely nothing woody. But seeing as how long I've been looking for a scent that smells like the ocean but without that hideous aquatic note that everyone seems to add to "salty" scents, I think I like it! Not sure if I hundreds-of-dollars like it, though.

It’s sultry, subtle, and sexy. Like others I wish the top notes lingered longer on my skin, but hours later my clothes still hold the scent.

No no no no no. No. This is truly one if the more horrendous fragrances I've sampled. I'm getting fir resin only and I don't know where the jasmine is. Where??? This is sterile as one other reviewer stated, like sanitized hospital rooms. Truly awful.

Yes I have it, I even have the lotion and body oil. Its nice, but it does not seem to last on me at all, or get noticed. I found something better and have stuck to that. Glad I bought it once, to see what all the hype was about.

I absolutely love this fragrance! Moreover, you can wear it anywhere and feel powerful, and here is the thing another man/ woman can be wearing it as well, and you both smell unique!!!!

I can see why this is popular but it's just not for me. It is much more fresh than I was expecting but there's a sourness to it that instead of cutting through the sweetness just makes it smell off/rancid on me.

This is a beautiful fragrance that smells very similar, but not exactly, to Ariana Grande's "Cloud". Between the two, I definitely prefer BR, but surprisingly on me it doesn't have the sillage I would expect while Cloud lasts all day. I'm glad I only purchased the sample of BR given the price. Keep in mind, this is just my experience. You can read reviews all day long, but whether or not you will like a fragrance depends on whether you like the notes and how they are arranged in the composition, the sensitivity of your sense of smell, and, of course, how the fragrance interacts with your body chemistry.

Absolutely beautiful. This one deserves all the hype. If I really concentrate hard I can maybe get some of the medicinal note in the dry down, as mentioned by some reviewers, but at least on my skin, this is far from the leading notes. I get an intoxicating musky, candied scent with a hint of wood that actually remains pretty linear through the dry down. Definitely worth a sample to test it out on your own skin chemistry. Just try it.

Upon the first application I absolutely loved the top notes... I thought to myself: This is beautiful! I couldn't stop sniffing my wrists. Those top notes quickly faded and was replaced by scent reminiscent of Ralph Lauren Polo in the dark green bottle, or a milder Drakkar Noir? I wished those top notes stuck around because I would have been in love, but I couldn't get Polo out of my head.

I cannot smell anything but a faint burnt sugar scent. I'm so sad that I can't smell this at all! This isn't a safe blind buy, please sample and make sure you can smell this before you purchase.

Karen below put it exactly right—this smelled nice but rather than ever getting better than that it dried into something sterile-powder-not-so-great. Thank goodness for the samples!

I had smelled this fragrance at a theater performance. Someone nearby must have been wearing it. It seemed somehow tropical, light and irresistibly unique. I am a fan of fragrances that are not overpowering but are subtle and unique. I went a year without smelling it again, but once I did I was sure to ask the wearer what it was. I recently purchased a bottle, and I am enthralled. I find the dry down much better than the initial hour or so, which is quite "musky" to my nose. You don't need much - only 1 spray - and I have been mixing it with Molecule 01. It is a subtle but irresistible mix, and I get compliments often - being stopped to ask what I am wearing. I am happy with my purchase.

Unbelievable, irresistible, unrepeatable! Nothing can replace this fragrance!! Just Amazing!!! What a master piece!!

Sample, sample, sample! Delicious and light woodsy red cola in the air......and then, I'm taken back to the delivery room outfitted with a spinal tap when I smell it on my skin. I actually don't mind the clean, sterile hospital smell, but I am surprised, amazed actually, how much skin chemistry makes a difference. So sample before the plunge and be in awe of how even the science of our skin can create such a wide spectrum of reactions!

I'm amazed by how much I don't like it. Its one of those nondescript fragrances. I doesn't smell flowers, fruit or freshness. Its just an odor. It doesn't stink, but it doesn't smell good at all. I have some on my wrist now and inhaling it I'm getting the scent of bark. I would not buy a full bottle. No.

This sent is the best thing I have ever smelled. I love it so much I noticed a girl in the same store I was in was wearing it and once I was on a plane and the flight attendant was wearing it as well. I was shocked I remembered the smell! It's very memorable. The best part is I can apply it once and it lasts all day.

This is The Best Cologne I Have ever used in my Life . Stays on all day. It doesn’t take but a drop. It’s Soft smelling, a little sweet,and it’s not Loud . I Love it .

Smells good but not unique. Smells exactly like cloud by ariana grande, just better sillage.

Amazing! I blind bought this after watching a 1,000 reviews. The reviews are 50/50 so that was prob not the safest thing to do. Lol I’m pleased to say this is AMAZING on me. Basically on me is caramel iced sugar mixed with woods. And the lasting power is amazing. I kept getting little whiffs of air as I wore it outside which just made it more wonderful. I plan on now getting the oil to complement it. You don’t need it though. This one is actually lasting as it should be for the price. I just love it that much.
