To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was looking for a cheap everyday aftershave to wear to work and saw this item. Sounded nice and as I was born in 1982 thought it would be fun to wear a fragrance that was created the year I was born.
Anyway I've worn it for the first time today and I have to say from applying it at 5am i could smell it all day! as my job is very physical which means I sweat a lot it held up better than some of the more expensive sprays. Back home at 3pm an can still smell it although faint now.
Great smell and great value for a long lasting fragrance would highly recommend
When this arrived I sprayed a small amount on my forearm and about two hours later it was still smelling strong when I took a shower, even after this I could clearly smell it. Even my wife noticed the smell after my showering. Anyone who says this hisnstuff is rubbish and loses it fragrance after only abshortbtime needs to see a nose doctor.
I bought this because many reviews outside said that this was similar to Boss Spirit. So it was a blind buy, but I am disappointed after using it. Its no where close to Spirit, although I have used it only 1-2 times till now. Its strong and long lasting. Smells decent for the price. Smells slightly like medicine/ointment. Packing and delivery was good. Perfume is original - no doubts about that. Hence the 3 stars.
Wonderfull unalpologetic vintage scent, a real man's man woody scent, Its been around since 1981, so that says it all really. I get both leather and pine overtones. I know there's a lot of talk about reformulations, but the current one, I purchased 2011 on the box, still has Quorum as its essence, obviously due to IFRA regulations, the scents lost some potency, still last all day on me with conservative use.
Odd detail, the bottle has no mention of Antonio Puig, only an engraving on the base of the bottle.
At around £10 this is very good for everyday use. It may be old-style but it is also widely liked which is a pretty basic requirement not met by a lot of newer products. I prefer a few others but they all cost much more. I don't understand the few criticisms about it not lasting and being fake because of the packaging not showing Puig. It lasts as well as any. The bottle has Antonio Puig actually moulded into its glass base and the smart box it came in has it printed underneath., so I would not so easily write it off.
Bought 2 for my husband's birthday.. he isn't impressed as he says these do not hold their scent like previous ones and I have to agree. I usually can smell it when he puts it on in the mornings and now hardly any smell. Something has changed. Won't be buying them again.
It has been decades since I have worn this fresh yet woody fragrance and when I saw it on a Lightning Deal for just over a fiver, I HAD to pile in! I'm very glad I did, as it's as nice an EdT as I ever remember - and at that price...
My only slight pique about the product is that the spray mechanism seems to leak around the neck, somewhat, when spraying - but no great shakes as it drips onto your hands and may be applied manually!
I thought i'd save by trying this but it smells like old talc. This scent scores well for longevity, the last thing you want from a musk like this. Packaging is dated, look at the build quality, and the atomiser (very 80's) as when it was launched. If you like smelling fusty and getting 100ml for your buck, this could be for you. I imagine it's Amazons choice to clear it out the stock room. Overall a positive review.
