Brut Revolution is a woody citrus scent that is clearly influenced by Acqua di Gio, but it's not an AdG clone. It's spicier, woodier, more natural smelling and more masculine than AdG. It has the light, effervescent texture of AdG, but it has a strong black pepper note that gives it bite, and makes it enjoyable. The scent dries down to strong vetiver and moss, and it's got a sort of dry leathery smell to it as well. Despite it having a light blue bottle, Brut Revolution is hard to label as an aquatic fragrance, because it doesn't smell watery. If anything, it smells dry as a bone, and I like that.
Longevity isn't all that great (3 or 4 hours), and it's not a sillage machine. However, its lightness is its biggest asset. After a couple of hours, you're left with a subtle aura of dry tartness, created by vetiver that provides both a woody smell and a lemony, citrus-like facet long after the actual citrus notes have faded.
Brut Revolution isn't earthshaking or very unique, but it's still a good light woody citrus that is worth more than its low price tag. I like it.
