Daddy or Buddy Choice?
"I could be another silly or an exception to the rule...", yet some notes meshed with my skin release a Davidoff Cool Water vibe! Forget about the opening, Usher He is all about fruity notes from pineapple and Calone blend, yet the more it enters into the heart and dry-down stages the more it reminds me of Cool Water, which is a good thing, entirely. I have blindly bought it, first of all for the beautiful and sophisticated bottle design, clean and modern with a black bottle and silver cap with engravings on it which looks gorgeous. Then because I was curious about the scent itself and didn't find any place for testing it, let's see how does it smell on me.

It opens up with a blast fruity accord of pineapple and melon, the artificial Calone flavor abounds here, and there is a tinge of citrus due to the verbena leaves. So, a massive ultra-aqueous melon opening, reminiscent of the sea and ocean, and giving the olfactory impression of the fresh seashore through its marine/ozone nuances, is lightened further by pineapple to provide the scent with an airy, ultra-light feel. It is a very watery fresh citric that all too quickly evolves into a spicy and aromatic heart. I like the aura that it creates around you and then lingers in the room where you sprayed it.

The mid-notes delay on the skin with the warmth and sensuality of lavender, peppercorn, and violet leaves. The opening evanesces after five minutes as the suede presses out the fruitier elements. The slightest hint of white pepper does come through, leaving an immaculate yet layered balance that lasts until the dry down, where musky sandalwood that is very light and subtle never entirely drowns out the traces of suede, pepper and the tiny bit of fruit residue. In the heart, Usher He becomes peppery and herbaceous. Many scents use pepper in their formulas, but I admire the use of pepper, is piquant and long-lasting but not overpowering, and it ages well on the skin, never becoming sour or stale.

Though a pretty linear fragrance until the base which turns more woodsy, but becomes very soft and sort of drifts away from the opening and middle. Here the notes smell of sweet woods and amber with hints of leather/suede and tons of musk. There's undoubtedly leather present, but it is 'downy' leather, not rough, pungent leather. A touch of vetiver keeps the base a bit smoky and earthy, while the sandal adds a creamy and warm aspect that balances the musk and the guaiac wood. The dry down creates an underlying softness.

It is mostly intended for young men and buddies and will work best in those cases, yet a daddy like me does not dislike it. The projection is excellent, and the smell itself is terrific and masculine. Usher He is not an expensive cologne, yet people often have a prejudice about this fragrance, but it is very refined, male, and fresh. Longevity is pretty good, so this perfume will keep you smelling good for at least 6 hours, probably more. It is fruity and inoffensive so you could wear it in most circumstances.
Some people associate this one with Green Irish Tweed, except this one is much cheaper, whereas I am inclined to compare it with Cool Water. I do see a moderate resemblance, but, where Cool Water is green and aromatic, Usher He is leathery and fruity. They do smell somewhat similar but still are different enough to remain unique in their own right.

That is the point of this cologne, and it does that entirely. You should wear it in warm seasons because then it will do its best. It is not a winter fragrance. However, the nuances of the notes work fine and better during middle seasons like spring and fall. It is also very versatile, so you do not have to be afraid of wearing it at work.
