MFH says

The first time I tried this was when I came across it in the Liberty Advent Calendar. And I absolutely love it.

It’s the cooling spiciness that I really enjoy in this fragrance. There is a slight darkness to it which makes it very masculine.

French Lover has a great performance as well.

This is for a guy who knows what he wants out of a fragrance.
