Forgettable
Cheap and synthetic. Nothing special. Sprayed a lot on me and after only a few hrs it just about disappeared. Same thing on my clothing. To be fair tbough it's a more current formulation. I have a vintage one on order with oakmoss and other goodies so hopefully I'll have a better experience with it. Very cheap indeed! There's really not much more to say about it.

Sing, Sang, Sung
....generally known mantra of the first chef in television history Hop Sing, who in the 70s, as restaurant manager at the Shiloh Ranch in Bonanza, aroused the German living rooms (parallel to 7 banana wheat) and was largely responsible for the predominance of Hoss aka Dan Blocker.
Hop Sing, who is played by Victor Sen Yung and was the second favourite son of PengPeng, is a direct ancestor of Alfred Sung, who before his time as a couturier in Canada, as Mounty the moose and raccoons, knitted the winter clothes and then in Winnipeg for Winnetou designed the spring collection, which Pierre Brice still presents every year at the Little Big Horn to the bored Schoschones' people with great laughter from General Custer. Has, as always, nothing to do with the fragrance...

About the fragrance: Those who like soap inevitably come across the scent, which gets numerous good but equally less good ratings on both Basenotes and Fragrantica. So it polarizes. 80s enthusiasts and eternally old school fanatics (like me) who have a preference for soapy scents will find an interesting variation on the theme of soap. Sung Homme smells a bit as if baroque Hoss, before he enters the far too small washbasin with loud noises, smeared intensively with BadeDas, while in the background Little Joe and Adam, set Hoss' favourite duck on fire... edward Elgar's Pomp and Circumstances...this smoky, burnt rubber on soap/bathing things you notice right from the start and even increase in intensity as it progresses and actually tickle your nose a bit like snuff. So if you don't have any "Priem" at the moment you will find a temporary replacement here...
Well, I can't see any great relationship to Paco Rabanne or Polo Green, but rather a great similarity to Krizia Uomo. He is a little bit synthetic, but Alfred does not stop the whole thing. All in all "weird soap" - a not uninteresting new interpretation of soap. As a cinematic background we recommend Quentin Dupieux's "Rubber" in which a "bad tire" becomes a killer

A Hidden Gem in 2020
I stumbled on this scent among the effects of an older relative. This fragrance is very different from the typical Sauvage and Bleu out there en masse in today's corporate America - the same aquatic, synthetic stuff that has everyone smelling like the same unified d-bag.

Sung is transcendent. It smells like the spirit of the year it was released - think a bold, stylish businessman jumping out of a limousine and closing big deals on a brick phone. A very fresh scent with a feel and flavor for the magic of the 80s.

Quintessence of the
out of the 80s or early 90s. This is how the whole old town of Ibiza smelled at 1 o'clock in the morning around 1990 ... A slightly less spicy Aramis Tuscany, less anise, more cedar, with underlaid Badedas flavour ( Fir ) and not synthetic at all - that's laurel instead of tarragon that smells like that. So less after kitchen and more after club. Zero old-fashioned, pleasantly reserved and yet beautifully present the whole. Not really old school gentleman, more of a discreet night cruiser. With all its simplicity - although the completely confused beginning - and portability (also office) I get this soap/anise/cedar/fir note, which really captivates you and remains strongly in your memory and is also a little bit kinky. Purchase price: 1/12 Aventus hahaha ..

I'm surprised that ...
... nobody has yet drawn a comparison with PACO RABANNE pour Homme?
People - this is almost 100% the same scent!?

Already while spraying on I thought to myself: wait a minute, the most familiar one, isn't it? That's right! That's the green PACO!
I might lean very far out of the window: but for me it's almost 1:1 the same smell!
However, this SUNG is almost even stronger and more intense!
Typical 80s barbershop: lots of soap and fir. Mhmmmm...
The durability is almost better than with the "original": even after 3 hours the SUNG still smells very intense, where the PACO already slowly strokes the sails (don't misunderstand.) Paco smells even then, but you notice that he gets weaker - if you don't moisten him again a little on the skin).

But this one still has the same intensity after hours. Very nice!
The situation is good for both, but not enormous: one smells, but one has to sniff more exactly - so in my opinion no room-filling scent.
The purple "baked dirty sow" remains relatively constant from the smell process - which I prefer by the way.

So: if the PACO is too expensive for you: this one is a cheap (not cheaper!) candidate!
Again and again!

This literally smells like a bar of soap. Fresh and clean scent with an old-school vibe. Best for spring and summer weather use. Great IMO.

This is one of the best barbershop cologne I've got in my collection, so damn soapy, freaking good, aromatic, fougère, resinous, and clean.

I don't perceive this as scent as oldfashioned one. Indeed very soapy, fresh and long-lasting, it's a great no-brainer pick!
