The above image is misleading; this is a review for XS aftershave, not Black XS which is an entirely different fragrance.
XS is a sophisticated fragrance suitable for everyday use. The most important thing to note about this aftershave is that it reacts with the skin to bring out the fragrance. This is normal with many aftershaves and what this means is simple terms is that it smells crude and like raw alcohol until it is rubbed into the skin after which the delicateness of the fragrance becomes apparent.
The smell is surprisingly light I can best describe it as a pleasant blend of wood and citrus with a very slight spice to it.
One of the greatest things about the 100ml aftershave version of this fragrance is how far it will go. I have applied a decent amount of this aftershave on at least 200 occasions now and I can hardly believe that the bottle is still 65% full.
This fragrance is comparable to BOSS Bottled and is a bargain alternative.
I often have dry skin after shaving but I'm pleased to report that this aftershave does not irritate my skin.
