Fresh/Woodsy Bargain Bin Jewel
Was wandering the Marshall's over my lunch break and ran into this frag. I remember making a mental note to check it out if I ever saw it on the shelf - thanks to the heads-up from Dan (Youtube: MyMickers), and his lovely wife Amanda.

Given that a 60ml bottle was marked at a ridiculous $6.99 USD, I grabbed a bottle off the shelf, plunked my change down and gladly walked out the door. I figured for about the price of a burger, if it didn't do anything else for me but become a room spray, it would have been worth the trouble.

Happily, this fragrance rises quite a bit above that level of wearability. It's still warm here in Houston at the moment, in the mid-80s, so it was a good day to try a fresh scent.

With 3 sprays, I get a slightly synthetic, but not terribly so, opening that smells fresh and ever so slightly woodsy and spicy. There are a few more notes than this in the pyramid, but the ones that stand out to me are the spicy top notes of Caraway and Star Anise and woodsy Cypress, heart notes of Eucalyptus and Lavender, and a bit of Sandalwood anchoring the base. I don't get anything dirty, smoky or overly green, including the Patch or Vetiver.

Sillage and projection seem moderate as I sit in my office, with just a little aura going on around me. Shouldn't be intrusive at all, and with moderate application, the scent itself should be OK for daily wear.

Eau de Grey Flannel is weightier than most fresh/aquatics I've tried, but its also far from gourmand or fougere territory. It strikes me as being at a midpoint between Nautica Voyage (but not as aquatic) and Perry Ellis 360 (but not as spicy). Those two are decent to very good frags for the price as well, so this is good company.

I like this one. Whereas I'm not wildly enthusiastic about really fresh/aquatic frags, this one has a bit more heft to it, making it distinctly masculine. It wears light and clean though, which I believe will be appealing to the GF as well, who favors that type of scent.

And seriously, at $6.99 for 60ml? Like most of us, I'm sure, I've occasionally spent much more and gotten less.

Solid 4.0/5.0 on it merits alone. Considering price, 4.5+/5.0, and very atypically, I would actually endorse a no-sniff blind buy if you ever have the opportunity.

A fresh, clean and quite sweet Summer juice. Very pleasant.

I'm trying not to be rude, but... I detect some pee smell, sorry. :(

Blind purchase by reading the reviews. It's not bad nor disruptive, but clean, fresh. It cannot compete with Gray Flannel or Bowling Green.

It's just a smell of laundry detergent and has nothing to do with the original Gray Flannel.
