    I hate to say it, but Cactus Shot's notes sound really good to me.

    I confess I am glad these are restricted to the Latin American market….

    They both sound good to me, actually!

    I am assuming Uppercut & Cactus Shot are both boxing terms??? I wouldn't know, but if not, they are both weird names.

    But I don't think they sound half bad — in fact, they sound as good as any number of higher priced men's releases this year.

    Cactus Shot. It's really a drink, right?

    I own Cactus Shot (it was a gift from one of my boyfriends employees who has family in Latin America) – I scoffed at the bottle when I received it expecting to not like it, but it's actually very nice.

    It does have that 'synthetic' sharp smell of it's notes – but it's ozonic qualities are up-to-par with Silver Mountain Water (Creed). It's longevity is a little short-lived…but then so are some L'Artisans right? :)

    And yes…these are 'boxing terms' – although I have no idea what move a Cactus Shot entails.

    I was going to comment on this earlier, but I was afraid of growing my reputation as ad-copy-Nazi. A fragrance that'll knock you out (upper cut), made by a company called Everlast. I'm a little frightened of being laid flat and assaulted by a fragrance for (how long is a match?) ten rounds. :)

    LOL — we *need* an ad-copy-Nazi, so do feel free to chime in :-)

    Sounds like one — and actually, a google search mostly turns up shot glasses shaped like cactus. So maybe it has nothing to do with boxing (?)

    Argh…Uppercut! What a tragic name, lovely notes on both though. But still….Uppercut?!? What is the target market population? It boggles the mind…

    I don't mind the name although it sounds a bit weird to me. But guessing that young men who like the Everlast brand won't mind it at all.

    as far as I know – the license for it belongs now to Etienne de Swardt, who is The Man after Etat Libre d`Orange :)
