An Amouage scent "on the cheap" ?
I think that was the idea with this one, and depending upon how "natural" and how strong you think a scent of this type should be, you will either like it or not (assuming you are being fair to a "budget brand"). The citrus here quickly gets overwhelmed by the other notes and it's quite interesting/niche-like, but definitely not too far out there (for those who want something really avant garde). Quite a few sprays were needed to get this scent to "bloom," so I wouldn't spend too much on it, and don't expect great depth, but that's to be expected. If you enjoy Encre Noir type scents, this is one you might want to sample (though Independent isn't as "chemical").
