When I first got this cologne, I thought I had made a huge mistake as it is so powerful, it it's easy to overdo it - and I love powerhouse colognes!
But trying it the next day, I absolutely LOVE it! It starts off with a strong blast of spicy honey and musk with a touch of leather; and dies-down to a nice incense and vanilla with a touch of floral.
This is a definite 80's powerhouse cologne straight from France, and I would recommend it for those over 30 (those younger certainly can enjoy it, but it may be hard to pull it off, especially with women of that age who prefer cleaner fresher scents). This cologne is about making a statement, and reminds me of a 1940's private detective kind of man. It's for a confident man who can carry himself well. It's a beautiful scent with tremendous sillage (projection) and good longevity. The quality of this fragrance far exceeds what you can find in more recent releases.
This one will be a permanent part of my cologne holdings and at this price and quality, I will be returning for more very soon.
Lapidus, is hard to find and to me is simply fantastic and I get compliments on it all the time. If you like, Chrome, Tuscany, ARMANI, LAGERFELD & Paul Sebastian, you'll enjoy Ted Lapidus as well. What you get here is made in France and I most definitely recommend it. A true classic which will never get old, THANK YOU FragranceNet for making possible for me to making it available!!
