I think this would make a great cologne. I wanted to try it and see if it could be my new go-to perfume but it was just too masculine for my taste. That being said, it still smelled amazing! Very woodsy, earthly aroma with that slight cologne smell. Just because it won't be my next perfume, doesn't mean it deserves any less stars. It lasted a long time on my wrist where I tested it so it's a quality product. Just try the sample and see for yourself, you might enjoy it!
