So this is not a warm and golden, amber scent. Amber must be in reference to ambergris, which this does have a salty, muskiness to it. However, this is more easily recognized as an Aventus clone.
Its decent in that it very pleasant and does resemble the Creed. Its more lemon than pineapple and it feels very balanced between the citrus and the wood. In fact, its dialed down in all areas. Less smoke, less leather, less sweetness. Its like Aventus for the office.
Performance depends on what youre after. Projection is average while longevity is good, lasting all day.
