The strange allure of electric shocks
Do people have a strange fascination with such shock? The obvious conclusion here is that I don't know. Excitement is part of the surprise spectrum, it's just one kind of surprise, but the shock is categorized as something unexpected or misexpected, different from the former because it was a total screw-up, not just a surprise. If we're surprised with something positive, we'll feel more intense feelings of happiness or joy than we usually would have absent the surprise. Similarly, if we're amazed by something negative, our feelings of anger, despair, or unhappiness will also intensify because of the blow. If you are anything like me, you hate being surprised, whereas you love surprising others, but I hate being surprised myself.

By the way, why am I arguing about shocks and mostly what is Police Shock-in-Scent smell alike? Surprise! The unexpected feels good, at least it's good for me. Well, it didn't shock me, but that's okay. To begin with, the electric blue bottle captivated my eyes, it is really noticeable among all the other bottles on the shelf. But, what could be a bit annoying is that the striking cap stings, ouch! It is full of pointed studs that pinch your fingertips when you grab it to extract it. Nevertheless, that didn't stop me from testing the essence inside.

In the spirit of Mr. Burberry and Jaguar Prestige but more fresh and sharp, a different approach to the former mentioned. Not better, not lower, just offbeat. Intertwined with old, traditional, and new, modern colognes, Police Shock-in-Scent for man welcomes you with bittersweet citrus and spicy accords. I get the tangy red grapefruit, while earthy and minty cardamom joins soon, not dominant but enough to tamper the zestiness. The mentioned pepper is nearly ephemeral; perhaps it's me as I do not get it too much. So far, so good, though it did not shock me yet.

The notes of aromatic lavender announce the heart, which has some minty and leathery facets, a bit of refreshing peppermint makes it modern, and freshly-cut birch leaves add a mild suede accord. Be aware, this is a gentle leather touch, not as rough or rude as what you might expect when you think about leather. A slightly woody note is even there, presumably the cedarwood reveals itself in the heart.

After about a few hours, the base involves quite a change, with more woody and musky notes. A tinge of modern white patchouli, together with addictive roasted and almondy tonka bean, and animalistic musk, warmly complete the dry down of the fragrance.

At last, Shock-in-Scent results to be a fougére, woody, and spicy cologne, which is fitting for colder days of middle seasons like Spring and Fall. The scent calms down after a couple of hours, I've been wearing it since 8 am, and it is still perceivable close to my skin at 2 pm. Of course, I am wearing it on a Winter day, my bad, unquestionably too cold for this kind of cologne. Hence, I'd rate it as average sillage, projection, and longevity. My final humble opinion, from the outside, it perfumes like a quite simple ordinary barbershop scent with some spiciness thrown in. Still, it appears several layers are hiding, and every time you catch a whiff of it, the notes are a little different. The overall signs are quite a few, yet I'd mainly set in a few accords: the freshness of the lavender, the soft woodiness of the cedar, the sharpness of the mint, and the warmness of the white musk that add a little bit of an edge to an otherwise smooth and modest mixture.
