This is great. I have Moondeva and Cullyflight to thank for it, the former for her spot-on passionate descriptions on the fragrance boards, and the latter in these reviews for comparing CIW to a 'modern building'.
I draw a line connecting this with CK Contradiction, as they share a cool, detached and officelike demeanour - as in the fragrance of overhead fluorescents, empty …

One of my all-time favorites. This is an interesting scent--it smells earthy and woody with a boyish edge. A man is most likely to compliment you on this fragrance because a) he would like to wear it himself or b) he identifies with it in some way. It's classy, but not in a pretty or feminine way, which makes it perfect for work. Girls who are into smelling like a girl, look elsewhere.

The reviews are correct, the cedar, citrus, etc. I have been given more compliments with this fragrance than any other one I own (a lot!). Sporty, fresh, GREAT!

I have the EDT and it begins with a sharp and citrussy blast of grapefruit and pepper, with a definite masculine edge to it. It also starts out quite strong and pungent but fades very fast, even for an EDT. After about 5 minutes the cedar comes through and I really like this stage. It smells unusual and I can't think of any women's fragrance similar to this. The cedar stage lasts about …Read more

This was very fresh and citrusy..but not feminine. I can see this more for a guy..anyway I want a little sweetness or something added. I didn't hate it..but I wouldn't wear it.

Hated it. I do love fresh & green but in this the fresh isn't really all that fresh and the green is tinged with dirt. There's an animalic something in there too that on my skin dries to a pooey-musk accord. Civet maybe? Really didn't like it at all. But I can smell the crushed leaves.

I love it! It's warm, fresh and clean and it is long lasting. You can wear it every season. It gives me happiness when i wear it.If you like fresh parfumes i strongly advise you to give a try .
In my opinion it does not smell like cool water. I really really don't like the smell of cool water.

I really wanted to like this. When will I learn not to think the notes described will translate into how a perfume smells! I was in love with the description: crisp pear, autumn leaves, wood. I love autumn! I felt so sure I'd love it. But honestly, it's strange. It doesn't smell bad, just doesn't smell as lovely and classy and delicious as I'd hoped. Disappointed. It …Read more

I love anything with green, and this is a perfect blend of orange and green on my skin, and buzzes happily on my skin. A little goes a long way for me.

I need to find this again... will have to hunt down a bottle at Marshalls.
