I'm intrigued by this. Has anyone smelled it?
Nordstrom Rack website. It looks like an old school scent, but as Derbyman says, the information on the internet is next to nothing. It's almost like that cologne by Omega watches that was like a ghost then disappeared.Where did you see this Chuck? i don't think I have ever heard of it.
I found a short description. Perhaps you saw it also - Robert Talbott Fragrance For Men Is A Woody, Spicy Scent. This Sophisticated Mix Of Citrus, Pepper, Cedar And Vetiver Is Confident And Masculine. A Perfect Fragrance To Wear To The Office, Days Spent With Friends And Family, And Dates With Someone Special.
If you have a Saks Off 5th near you, they have it for $29 and change if you want to gamble.
I would approach this with caution and advise against blind buying. Lack of reviews, any presence or visibility outside of Saks Off 5th / Nordstrom Rack and the fact that MSRP is a whopping $120, now discounted 75% and still doesn't sell (it's been on the saks off 5th website at that price forever) - all should be red flags.
A few months ago I was at Saks Off 5th B&M outlet store and spotted a Jared Lang fragrance. I've actually seen it before many times, albeit online only - Macy's for $75, Nordstrom Rack for $40 and Saks Off website for $20. I've always wondered about that fragrance, there were absolutely no leads on the internet, nothing on Jared Lang social media (ghastly, garish, tacky brand, btw), except the notes listed on Macy's/Nordstrom/Saks. I wondered for many months and then when I saw it the physical Saks outlet store - something was triggered. I means, it's Saks, surely they wouldn't sell complete garbage, right? They have reputation. Obviously not lux or niche, but decent designer stuff, right? So I blind bought it, even though there were dozens of bottles piled on the shelf and that should have been my clearest final warning.
Turns out, this stuff is pathetic. I can't even describe it because it was akin to rubbing Unstoppable pellets on your arm - just vague musky chemicals. No topnotes, no middle, no base. The $8 Beverly Hills Polo Club colognes have more going on. Can't even use it as a bathroom spray. I can't even come up with some sarcastic pun because I am so mad at myself for buying this leftover dishwasher liquid in a spray bottle.
So... personally, I'd stay away.
