Mass produced and oft repeated

Very little about this release is unique, novel or fact, it treads on very similar grounds as most mass produced, cheap and easily accessible fragrances. Its opening notes are very citrusy, eventually it tames down into more woodsy and aromatic notes. It has a synthetic air and quality about it, normal for cologne in this price range, but it isnt unpleasant or overbearing. Overall it smells decent; it wont get you compliments, but it wont get you disapproving grimaces either. It's boring and safe and for the price, it's not bad.

However, it has no staying power, whatsoever. Its initial notes are strong and pungent, but hours later it will be unrecognizable and untraceable. You will have to apply several times per day, which is standard for eau de toilettes, but often three times per day (even with generous and libations applications).

My suggestion is that this best fits a younger man, who needs coverage with a somewhat versatile frgrance (citrusy, fruity and woodsy and sweet, with a hint of an oriental vibe). Best for days in and out and about when you have nothing else in the cabinet and want to spruce yourself up a bit.

If this were a rating (on a scale I use):
Wow factor: 1/5
Staying power 1/5
Price point: 5/5
Accesibility: 5/5 (you can find it everywhere and anywhere)
Design: 2/5
Fragrance smell: 3/5

Tl;dr cheap, easily accessible frgrance that smells decent but whose performance is lackluster.
