This one gets a lot of hype
but it doesn’t quite live up to its expectations, at least in my opinion. It smells like it WISHES it was in the Invictus line, but doesn’t quite make the cut. The opening REALLY tries to be one of the Paco Rabanne trophy cups, but as it dries down it becomes quite a bit “thinner” in how it resonates and projects. Imagine how someone who was rocking Invictus when they “hooked up” would smell when they left in the morning. That’s the vibe I get. How someone who wore Invictus edt and didn’t scrub hard enough in the shower would smell. A thinned out, softer feeling Paco flask with a pinch of “soap” added to it.

It’s not a bad scent by any means. Some people kind of like Invictus, but think its a little too “loud” in sillage and projection. Legend Spirit would appeal to them. It’s softer, and doesn’t project as much; maybe a 1.5ft radius maximum. Sillage is also very weak, and it becomes a skin scent very quickly. It’s not bad, but it’s definitely not for me.

This one has a great scent...
... It’s just that the longevity is VERY lackluster. The grapefruit note holds steadily throughout the life of a pretty solid, masculine scent, but unfortunately the scent only survives on my skin for barely 4 hours, and that’d be on a good day. The projection is moderate throughout the lifespan; barely giving a 2ft radius, and the sillage is somewhat light as well, becoming a skin scent within an hour and a half or so. I really enjoy the scent itself, it’s just that the short performance has me uneasy about purchasing it. The fact that it is indeed very inexpensive has me on the borderline of grabbing it; it is that good of a scent. I just can’t decide whether or not there’s room for a 4 hour performer in my collection

An epic one for all occasions
This one is a fantastic, diverse, and universal fragrance. While it doesn’t cry out with “originality” it does a fantastic job through ANY task you put it through. A nice, smooth blend over a fantastic tonka bean note that constantly gets smoother as the time passes. It has a decent projection radius of about 3+feet through the 8 hour span it rolls through; MAYBE backing off to a foot and a half after 4 hours or so on a scorching hot day. The sillage train is awesome throughout the first 2 hours or so, and then it slowly backs off as the hours pass.

The tonka base is absolutely fantastic; I personally LOVE the sweeter fragrances, and the middle to drydown of this one is simply GORGEOUS to my senses. If you like tonka bean, this one is one of, if not THE best. Definitely worth the purchase.

“A Transformer... more than meets the eye”
This phrase fits this one to perfection; because if you judged this one on appearance alone, it’s a miserable fail... but should you try it out... it’s an interesting experience, indeed.

With the opening you get a vibe that cries out “I wish I was Invictus” and it holds that vibe through for a good 2-2.5 hours, but once the 2nd hour begins, it becomes a true “DECEPTICON”, as it transforms from the trademark INVICTUS opening, into a slightly sweetened version of the Sauvage heart, all the while still blasting out and holding through with that easy 2-3ft projection radius it opened with. Sillage is potent as well, leaving your mark everywhere you’ve passed through. Longevity easily passes the test (as do most Armafs), going 6+ hours with no problem. Unfortunately however, it almost seems as if Armaf is TRYING to scare you away with their horrendous bottle designs. If you decide to look beyond the bottles and give them a shot, they tend to be fun overall, to play with.

This one in particular would appeal to those who like their fragrances LOUD and PROUD, and have a taste for the sweet stuff. I actually like this one; even though it’s ripping off two of the more popular designer scents. The way they melted them together is great though. I just gotta hide the bottle.

This one has a great smell;
I feel a lot of similarity to Terre d'Hermes edt in the opening, but I don’t get as much in terms of sillage. MAYBE a 1.5ft radius when it’s fresh. As it dries down it gets a bit sweeter, but still very similar to TDH. When it dries to the middle and base notes is where it really shines best. It softens up a little bit as it sweetens, and it’s GORGEOUS at this point. It also DOES indeed have a good staying power as a skin scent, so it would go well for work/business, and it’s quite inexpensive, so I’m not complaining about anything. It’s another slightly mature, very masculine scent that I have for formal occasions around people that I’m not so familiar with. It’s a nice, fresh, and slightly smoky citrus that you can wear freely, with no worries about offending anyone.
