Antaeus needed to stay low, dense and earthbound to be a viable adversary. Chanel has captured that in the form of fragrance. Antaeus keeps a low center of gravity and doesn't stray far from its source of power. You need be in a challenging mood to wear this scent.
There is a line from a movie about "Wearing big-boy pants". It's a Will Ferrell line from the movie "The other guys". I bring that up because you had better be prepared to wear those big boy pants when donning Antaeus. This really is a mans scent and I don't recommend it for those who gravitate towards fragrances that are non-aggressive. It would still smell fantastic on whoever would choose to wear this classic, but the wearer might become offended by his own scent. Big boy pants. Go get a pair or leave the Antaeus to others.
The beeswax doesn't take long to begin working its way into the composition. Antaeus also begins developing a leathery feel from the combination of notes. This isn't a traditional leather fragrance, but it morphs into one of the best examples of "what could be" when a house puts some time and effort into a creation.
The mythical Antaeus was a big dude. Chanel Antaeus is a big scent. Put on a pair of big boy pants or perhaps an enlargement of attitude and try this classic on for size. Who knows.......you might do something big.
