Similar feel to Bentley Intense but the rum note makes it sweeter, softer, more wearable. Also, this is more natural and less of a projection bomb than Bentley Intense. I do get the cola vibe but it reminds me more of a rum and coke than just coke. Some of the most pleasant woody notes I've ever smelled, almost floral like. Because of the price, probably not FB worthy but I would pick this over Bentley Intense any day. I'm wearing this on a cold day and seems to be just right for that.
Oh I'm fond of rum. On the hottest of days, capt. morgan and coke gets gulped. Then there are the rums I treat like scotch whisky, enjoyed in wee sips.
Fine rum overlaying SL Serge Noire, which I'd say is rather like clove cigs & chapstick ... and voila... Idole edt. Good evening and Autumn scent. Maybe 6 hours with subtle projection that invites closer attention. A fine date scent.
The bottle, along with the edp, are the 2 best-looking cologne bottles I believe I'll ever own, and the scent does do justice. Keepers, both.
A cola accord, a booze note and some sweetness and spices. And no that is not a recipe of a cocktail but a making of a masterpiece.
The only fragrance that has earned my 5 star rating FWTW ;).
And don't be fooled by its clone threads, there is nothing like it out there.
Now that EDT is discontinued, get the EDP. Differences are minimal.
