It can be a Legend
This can be a real Legend among the cheapies. Very nice to my taste. Pretty sweet, syrupy like sweetness. I also feel like a sweet & creamy capuccino vibe in here instead of coffee.
The leather really gives it the depth that it needs to be more likeable.
I can barely detect the tea/herbal components.
The opening can be a little too much so you better let it sit for a while.
Linear throughout the wearing but that's not a bad thing because the smell in the air is very likeable, especially for the people with sweeter taste.
The longevity & projection are quite good for the price.
8hrs at least for me & projection is not the greatest but still quite noticeable, far from a weak one.
As the wearings are going, fall&maybe winter, being a straight sweet & gourmand scent. As for scenarios, let this one carry you whenever you want, considering the sprays.
Gourmand lovers should deffinitely try this one. The prices are ridiculous most of the times !

Overall : 7.5/10

Very helpful Review    8  
An influential cheapo!
This stuff gets frequently (and rightfully) compared to Rochas Man and New Haarlem by Bond No. 9, both of which are work of the great Maurice Roucel. What really amazes me, is the fact that Legend precedes both by several years (1997 vs. 1999 and 2003, respectively). Also, I've never seen it credited to any perfumer. That just makes me wonder which makes more sense: a single perfumer composing three very similar fragrances within a span of six years - each covering very different markets - OR the distinguished Mssr. Roucel releasing not one but two clones (or pastiches, to be more polite) of a work by another perfumer? All I'm saying that it makes me wonder.
What does it smell like, then? To put it in one word, it smells great. Knowing what it is, it's easy to call it a bit flat or one-dimensional, but if I had just ran into a smell like this, I wouldn't characterize it as cheap, but merely linear(-ish). Not a single facet exists that I might consider annoying or irritating.
Above anything, Legend is a gourmand masculine (whereas one of the most intriguing aspects of New Haarlem lies in the overlapping of fougère and gourmand accords). The coffee note in Legend lacks most of the delicious roasted feel that New Haarlem's opening has, but both are coffee-prominent scents nevertheless. Whereas New Haarlem has monster projection and can be a bit too dominating if over-applied, Legend wears easy and care-free. The aromatic notes, anise in particular, add air to the composition.

One of the best (if not THE best) bargains in my book. Wear it as it is (i.e. an auto-pilot gourmand) or try layering it with some lavender to make it an even closer substitute for New Haarlem.

A rich gourmand coffee scent. Was ahead of it’s time when released. Pick it up for $13 for an amazing find.

This punches way above its weight. Woody, spicy, sweet, it's a perfect winter fragrance and given its price a must try. Near niche quality.
