"Lean, lithe and potent just like its Greek hero namesake. The most potent, long-lasting form of men's fragrance. For an unmistakably masculine presence, day and night. Cooling, revitalizing spray to use lavishly all over the body."
Ordered Antaeus today after reading some rave customer reviews at the Nordstrom's site.
I could not find any of the Penhaligon fragrances for sale at any leading USA stores, such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstroms, or Saks. (Strange)
Thank you for you input,
When you buy a cologne without sampling it, it's called a blind buy, and it's risky. I did it once, and never again. As another poster mentioned, scent is a personal thing, not only in how you like it out of the bottle, but how it wears on you. I have tried 372 colognes. I own two. 372 is nothing, the top reviewers on Basenotes have all reviewed more than 1,000 colognes. These guys are experts, but I wouldn't blind buy anything they recommended. I'd sample them, but not blind buy them.
Having said this, Chanel Antaeus is, for me, the best Chanel scent and probably in my top 20. Good out of the bottle, nice pepper note over time. Not a crazy niche scent, even if you don't love it, you probably won't hate it. Hope it works out for you, please report back.
