Although not a dead ringer for Creed’s BdP the dry-down is 80%-90% similar. My initial reaction was hesitant because the ingredients don’t seem quite as high quality as those that go into BdP and it doesn’t have the same projection or longevity. However, with time this scent has grown on me and I love the classy barber-shop vibe you get from the citrus/lavender combo. This is definitely for more mature gentlemen who appreciate sophistication. I bought a travel spray of this and when it runs out I will be buying a bottle. “Debonair” is a word that comes to mind when I think of this scent which is now part of my collection.
