I agree with you. I actually quite enjoy it. It just smells good. Love that the suede peeks back through during the wearing.I love Manly. Wear it all the time. I haven't smelled Comme des Garcons 2 Man (hmm) or Gucci pour Homme (2003) in a long time, but it feels like a better, more natural and altogether more satisfying version of both. Lately I alternate it with Sycomore EDT, vintage Patou pour Homme, Homeros and Oud Zhen. It might not advance the art of perfumery, but it's a good one.
Simple, perhaps, or at least not a multi-dimensional piece of olfactory art. But most fragrances aren't.
I think a pretty promising debut showing. I expect a raised bar from Aton next time, but would be willing to try the next one, especially in 10ml. I'll definitely be keeping mine. I like it and my wife does too.
