About this deal

I think that this cologne didn’t even have a chance with the Frag community because the majority believe it’s nothing ground breaking or unique.

It would almost trick you into thinking it's a blue fragrance in the opening but until that green and spice comes through then it's clear this is more of a green fragrance. I'm not native to North Carolina, so pimento cheesespread on my hotdogs, burgers and chicken sandwiches will never be a thing for me, like spaetzle at Thanksgiving dinner will never be a thing for my neighbors. This is the creation of a kindergarten class being asked to choose any mix of ingredients they want, and then make their own special fragrance. I can see how from afar you get a typical designer male scent but up close is where you get the nuance. I was looking forward to seeing a classic masculine woodsy perhaps blue fragrance have an added pimento note and I wasn't disappointed when I got to smell it.When I first smelled this at Macy’s I immediately thought it smelled really good but at the same time different.

It has a bit of a hairy chest type of vibe, kind of a action hero vibe too but it's K for King so it works! If you already own the original Eau de Toilette you’ll be surprised at the difference in longevity with this addition – I was, and I’d go as far as saying it’s one of the most long-lasting scents I’ve spritzed in a while. It smells spicy, woody, and honestly I just sampled Polo Deep Blue which I also considered for my Dad, and amazingly they both smell very similar to me. I’m not a fragrance expert so not sure what notes are doing that but for me it’s too sickly for my liking. It’s nothing special though, it fits the standard clean smelling/blue-like fragrance which is what they were going for.It's fresh, clean, elegant, and I don't see it as an odd fragrance, and although it is not an ultra masculine scent, a man can rock this just fine.

But I can't find myself saying that I love it, nor find myself wanting for a second purchase of 'K' at the moment. I don't like its bottle at all, in fact it seems quite simple, if you remove the precious embellishing cap, you have nothing left but a bottle that says nothing. Lavender and geranium are dominant, smell lavender and geranium from start -- dry floral green not veg green not chlorophyll green.Office friendly as long as not oversprayed, 2 or 3 sprays was enough to last more than your typical office hours. Opening is a luxurious yet approachable fresh juniper Yl/blood orange with a nice clean and dry patchouli note in the heart. Almost impenetrable yet not quite opaque, the lacquered glass allows for an intimate glimpse at the scent it houses. I'm going to pay an hommage to this fragrance as it doesn't get that much love in the fragrance community.
