I remember the first time I smelled this in the early 90's, and I thought it smelled like nothing I've ever smelled. I know some may find it loud, but if you use this sparingly, it smells classic. It's probably not something I'd wear to work, but sometimes you want a fragrance with presence. It's got a lot of notes , but they go together. I also don't find this dated because it's well-balanced, and like it or not, big is still with us now (Flowerbomb and Alien, for instance). The sillage and longevity are great with this, so a little goes a long way.
Maybe I'm crazy, but I even like the quirkiness of the "heart" bottle.
