Very interesting Cologne. It definitely won't be love at first smell. But, for those who love heady sensuous strong spicy smell, this is just the one for you. The first layer is very strong, but as that fades the second layer is very sensuous. You tend to smell it again and again (out of curiosity). Honestly, I would have preferred the pomegranate notes to be stronger rather than the cloves and the wood notes. You can always top this one with a floral fragrance.
