Pros: No skin irritation, Soothing
Cons: Too much citrus, Way too powerful scent, not sexy at all
Oranges and lemons in limited amounts, are quite delicious, when you are eating them. However, as far as colognes go, I do not want to smell like a combination of both of them. I was given a gratis gift of Tuscany by Aramis, and it was a thoughtful gesture, but one that didn't have the desired results. Its yellow color, the bottle, there's nothing wrong with those. Considering this is a small size, and mostly for sample purposes, the company put a lot of money into this tiny investment. Yet it is the product that is the problem, and when it comes to masculine smelling colognes, Aramis Tuscany will not be considered part of that market.
This is probably an older person's scent, that has lost all sense of smell. I almost wanted to wear chest high plaids with this, as its not athletic nor does it have any allure to it, that makes the ladies go crazy. In fact, I heard "What the hell is that?" That alone, speaks volumes about the horror of this cologne. In addition to the overpowering citrus scent, the lack of masculinity, this cologne also seemed to mix a bit of tobacco into the formula. That would be fine if it was the top note, but instead it smells like you've been playing around in Florida's citrus gardens. Fine for farming perhaps, but not for a night out in the club, or even at the office. Its just too strong, and the results on the skin was satisfactory.
I will say there must be no alcohol in here. Most colognes cause me burning after a shave, this one did not one bit. It left my skin feeling cool, and I was happy that there were no bumps or signs of redness after applying it. Other than that, there's nothing positive to say about it. The full size product's price is low to mid range, but its not worthy of your hard earned money. While citrus is a fine note, when used in such abundance, that ruins what your cologne is trying to do. It covers sweat fairly well, but its not that cool, that you are just blocking away one undesirable odor with another. Avoid this cologne, unless your name is Mr. Tropicana.
