I bought this cologne for a friend in hopes that it would match the same scent of a cologne he use to the buy and wear in the 1950s that went by the name El Pino. Sadly while this colonge has a pine scent it's a very light one, and not the bold pine smell I was expecting. In fact with the citirus elements it sort of reminds me and everyone who smells it of vicks vapor rub when it's first applied. As it wears off the scent isn't as strong but it keeps the vicks element. So if you like the smell of vicks vapor rub, then this cologne is perfect for you. Now the reason I give it such a high rating is that by sheer accident the friend I bought this for sprayed himself with another cologne called Lacoste after having applied the Pino and the resulting scent was nothing short of amazing. The vicks element was completely gone and nothing but a fresh pine scent remained. This lead to mixing several other colognes with Pino and in many cases the Pino Sylvestre adds a great pine element to any clean scented cologne. So on it's own this colonge is certainly an aquired taste, but if you're willing to try combinations of scents this cologne adds a great pine scent to most mixes. For that purpose I highly recommend it.
Having used this scent in the past I was delighted to find it offered by Overstock. It is a great "change of pace" cologne for daytime use. I'm just sorry that I didn't order more.
Thank you again Overstock! Product arrived fresh, in the manufacture sealed box. No shipping or tax from a trusted source is why I keep coming back to this site.
