So I was feeling “brave” today (aka didn’t have plans to leave the house) so I gave myself a pretty heavy dose of this beast.
That killer dirty animalic opening is still pretty scary, but an hour in it softens nicely exposing the woody base. 7-8hours later it is still carrying well.
I’m finding myself enjoying it more the more I wear it, but I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to overcome the late 80’s early 90’s YMCA locker room vibe enough to reach for it if I did have a full bottle.
Having finished one of my 2ml samples, we will see if I get a hankering for my next one, and if I finish that, then maybe a d decant… but … we will see. there is still so much in this genre that I’m unfamiliar with. But Antaeus has its reputation for a reason.
