Pecksniff's Active for Men
I have worn Active for Men now for 3 straight days trying to get a bead on this fragrance. Slowly, it's growing on me, but I admit to not liking the initial wearing. I'm assuming that this particular Pecksniff's is more suited for "light" and "casual" choices. If I'm mistaken, then I don't know what Pecksniff's was trying to accomplish when they sat down at the table to discuss creating it. At any rate, Active seems to share DNA with Horizon and smells like it has a more than a dash of it in the composition.
The ozonic-citric accord is the soul of Active, with the listed cedar lending the herbal embellishment. I experience no conventional woods here. I suppose that if Active had enlisted the help of the overused and contemporary rendition of Cedar, I would have found it less interesting than I do now. I never expected similarities to Horizon, but yet it's right here in front of my nose and a bit superior due to the bracing Grapefruit note. As I side by side these 2 scents, Horizon leans more herbal while Active relies more on the citrus to make its point. Still, they are very close.
