“This is a classic legend which still rules out today. It’s a very clean fresh and very manly and mature scent. Best for office wear. I can clearly smell apple aroma and lots of it. The 80’s and 90’s perfumes were the power houses and so was this. Sillage and lasting power are good.”

I wear it during the day at work and I can still smell it by the end of the day.”
