Rated 5 out of 5 by Really unique fragrance that's not familiar Not really smelt this sort of fragrance before. I tried it on a tester card in store but didn't like it immediately. After purchasing a different aftershave I got this as one of the free testers. When I tried it on my skin at home, it had a completely different smell. Really nice fragrance! 11 May 2012
