Cigar or gold ingot?
At first, I thought it had some aromatic note, a lavender or something, with a pungent and aggressive vanilla, at this stage Cuba Royal seems to be a bomb, after 30 minutes on my skin, a incense smell begins to emerge. Even so, a sweet vanilla aroma remains, slightly incensed, but masculine because of the tobacco note, which makes it very pleasant.

From the initial impression it seemed that it would project well, I ended up being disappointed, as the projection becomes moderate in a short time and in the end it is very close to the skin.

The fixation is good for the price, around 6 hours and the projection is remarkable in the first 30 minutes, then it stays moderate until about two hours after application.

I think Royal is an excellent cost-benefit, good lasting and ok projection for a very cheap perfume that smells like 1 Million.

Not a Royalty
Great for the price, picked up a 100ml bottle for 5€.
Great for winter and fall.
I don't like the look of the bottle it just looks cheap.
It has a weak performance about 4 hours and then it is gone.
I like the tobacco and you can realy smell that vanilla it comes out very sweet.
If you like sweet fragrances than I can recommend it and it won't break the bank.

Cuba Royal IS the ORIGINAL! 1 Million is the clone.
Some of the fragrance reviews on various websites make me laugh. People saying they prefer the 'original frags' to the Cuba fragrances is hilarious. Cuba IS the original - The 'OG'. The others copied Cuba's fragrances. Cuba Royal was released in 2006. 1 Million Paco Rabanne was released just over 2 years later in 2008. So it can't be the other way around. 1 Million stole the scent from Cuba Royal. FACT.

Please do some research before posting that you like the 'original'. If that were true you would know that Cuba fragrances have been around longer than the copies and clones. The big name companies copied Cuba fragrances over the years. They are the dupes. Not the other way around. Cuba is not a new, up and coming fragrance house. They have been around a long time and utilized some of the better noses in the fragrance industry developing their fragrances.

I love this scent! For me it is better than the clone - 1 Million. It's less cloying, has better balance and lasts about as long on my skin. Now couple that with the price and this is a HOME RUN! All the way!

250,000?
Yeah. Not 1 million. Let's be real. This may be against the review rules, but as far as I know, the true notes are blond leather, blood orange, mint, grapefruit, rose and patchouli, and that's pretty much what you get...although, they are nowhere near authentic.

The overall vibe is a plasticy, candy orange bubblegum smell. No cinnamon, no leather, no woods and no spices. There's absolutely no tobacco, so I don't even know what that's about. It's just a weird, smooth orangy concotion that smells, dare I say it, childish up close. It gets a little chalky towards the end, but at least the longevity is decent.

Update: Wow. I had to delete the last paragraph because it was just plain rude. Shame on you buddy. lol Anyway, now that I read this over a year later, it really goes to show how people evolve over time, as well as the overall industry. Originally, it sounds like I was pissed that such a mediocre scent could win over so many people. But after spending more time with the original 1 million, I realized that Cuba Royal REALLY is an incredible clone for the price. Plus with the continual decline in quality and uniqueness in the designer fragrance market, we might as well upgrade this scent to GOOD. EXCELLENT even for the teenage demographic. What was I thinkin'? If you want 1 million, don't even bother with the real thing. Just get 2 bottles of these and use the rest of the money to take out that special someone. Win-win. And SCORE.

A 1 Million variant reasonably well done and a bit more balsamic. For the price it's a gem. Make your kids happy with this cigar bottle.

Nice smelling take on 1 Million but to me is 1 Million Privé with a 1 Million Cologne strength.
