I am a smoker who wants my cigarette smell to blend with my cologne, instead of fighting them. Gucci Pour Homme II with its Tobacco leaf in the base notes had been intriguing for me as a spring/summer fragrance. I ordered a 10mL sample and the juice has this nice soothing babyblue color. The Bergamot is very short lived in my nose and I get the black tea and Cinnamon right away. The tobacco and musk in the base are subtle and excellently mixed. Another reviewer's description as an ambien or valium resonates with me, Gucci pour Homme II is like a chill pill. Performance, longevity and sillage are not the greatest but this is not an extrovert smell but an introverted one that I find soothing. I like it a lot, but I don't know of an occasion to wear it. I encounter the same issue as I do with Acqua Di Gio Profumo: an excellent mature scent but it's a calming downer. I do not find it elating and often don't reach for the bottle: Profumo I still like to wear on hot summer nights when I want to appear somewhat sharp, but with Gucci Pour Homme II I can only imagine wearing it to calm myself down for a nap in Spring/summer time. I can't think of a good (enough) occasion to wear it and I am not planning on getting this discontinued line.
