Darth Vader's Personal Fragrance
I have a lot of dark fragrances. If you are a fan of ATH you will like this one.
By the name alone I think of a swingers club or the smell of male porn stars. Private Label is a fragrance for sex. It's not romantic, it's deviant and should be worn at a dark club like the Torture Rooms and smelt off of each others bodies. I'm not being crude but this is the perfume exactly for this type of scenario. I like it but just need the occasion to wear it. It lasts well and would definitely shine when your body heats up with a lover.

Juicy Fruit and strong Musk
I am going to be blunt here on first spray this smells of juicy fruit chewing gum in a puddle of stale piss. I know it's not eloquent but that's my impression. It's longevity is OK and projection moderate. I'm a big fan of Chris Maurice and love many of his creations for Xerjoff but this one is more like something ATH would create. Saying that I actually like it. The vanilla comes through but I can't smell tobacco. If its there it's very faint. An evening fragrance for sure but don't reveal it to the world until you let it die down for an hour or two.

A long lasting musky fruity concoction
Just received my 10ml of this today. It has only just become available to buy as a 10ml bottle. It is long lasting and is very masculine with a sweet and fruity undertone. Perfect for this miserable British summer weather we are having but can be worn all year round. At only £16 for 10ml it's a bargain. Pleasant and well worth the money.

This is very well named... Aaron does PDM
Ok this is £70 for 30ml. That is a bargain. I don't care if it's just like a PDM fragrance. This smells amazing. It's potent and lasts forever. It does smell like a tobacco fragrance to me although it's not listed. Definitely a cold weather, evening out fragrance or just sit indoors on a cold day and sniff yourself. Bloody good fragrance.

Earthy and Fruity
So, I have bought both Blue and Black versions. I have been wearing this blue version for a couple of days now and the weather has been warm and humid. Now I am not a connoisseur but I do love different fragrances and have most of ATH range. First of all I find this rather earthy on the initial spray, almost like Figment but much much nicer. It does have a blast of fruit but I can't really pick out each individual note. The skin accord that is in a few of ATH creations certainly lingers but is rather pleasant and fresh. It certainly lingers on clothes and I perhaps over sprayed in the beginning. It's not one of ATH best creations and the bottles really need some work, they look rather cheap.
I would not say this is a very unisex fragrance definitely manly. It's an ok from me. I look forward to trying the black version on a night out. UPDATE: Just had Instant Crush delivered and this is very similar.
