ITS A CLASSIC! It's not too strong and just the perfect blend of vanilla and musk. I totally forgot how lovely the scent of this cologne was until recently when I saw this at Macy's. It sits well when layered with another vanilla type lotion such as the vanilla bean noel from bath and body works. I wear it everyday and I always get compliments for it. Again it's not too sweet nor too sugary of a scent. It only last for 5-6 hours though, and prob 8 hours during winter season.
