I bought this as a blind buy as I don't know how the original Roja Elysium smells like. It's nice. Fruity and reminds me of Aventus by Creed. The opening is citrussy but this quickly fades away and you get a fruity sweet smell. It does last several hours. I didn't think it was anything special though so not sure what they hype is about. I'd rather wear my Azzaro pour homme to be honest.
