    Crisp and Boozy

    What can I say about this fragrance other than it is a solid choice for the summer. It smells like a mixture of fresh rainfall and gin. When I heard it had gin in the notes, I expected it to overpower the freshness of it but it is blended quite well. It's unfortunate that this is discontinued because I thoroughly enjoy it. It has fantastic longevity but the projection isn't great. If you're looking for a summer scent (since great ones are hard to come by compared to winter) then pick this up on eBay before the prices get ridiculous!

    9.4/10

    Pros: 1. Light, crisp, and boozy are a great combination 2. Solid longevity 3. Works well in the heat
    Cons: 1. Projection is below average 2. Discontinued 3. Won't work in cold weather

    The green colour of this juice and bottle are somewhat misleading as it might lead one to expect a herbal concoction reminiscent of Paco Rabanne. Instead we have a clean, crisp, fruity & sparkling fragrance that in my opinion is what the rather synthetic smelling Hugo should aspire to smell like. There is indeed some association in my mind between the fragrance and a crisp, cool sparkling G&T, thus I believe a sapphire blue colour for the juice similar to that of Hugo or Chrome, and a chromed bottle would have best suited the character of this fragrance – is this my mind playing tricks on me after I became aware that there is Bombay Gin note in this? Nevertheless, despite its crispness, there is also a nice fruity warmth to the smell without the metallic/newsprint edge of the exalted original Quasar - although there is a detectable family resemblance between the two - or the aloofness of Cool Water. In my opinion the fragrance is versatile and not in the least bit ‘dark’, perhaps making it best suited to daytime or office wear and would probably suit anyone from their late teens upwards. This also has excellent staying power and sillage on my skin. Has a great chunky bottle design that is almost identical to the original Quasar, and can easily be found at remarkably cheap prices that defy the high quality of this fragrance. I like both of your Quasar fragrances very much – great job Jesus!

    This one is light and clean, and its notes are quite enjoyable. It’s opening contains a bit of exoticness by means of the Asian citrus, and green notes — or maybe it’s that Bombay Gin note effervescing up from the middle that does it. Regardless, Quasar Adventure opens more green than citrus and I really admire the balance and refinement of the accord. True, it is subtle and a bit aquatic, but it is also a finely assembled accord. This is a quite complex fragrance — more complex than most aquatics – and less synthetic. The complexity enters in even more strongly to the middle accord, where I can find the geranium, the Bombay Gin, and the sage up front in a bit of an exotic accord; the soft lavender textures the background of the middle. As other reviewers have mentioned, the base is, perhaps, the most important and impressive aspect of the fragrance: I get primarily a wood base with a very nice musk echo. It’s not the traditional wood base, it, too, forms part of the adventure. This is a quietly unique fragrance — its excellence is in its minutia, which is something I wouldn’t have expected judging from its rather clunky bottle. Unfortunately, close to the skin, the fragrance does carry a slight alcohol / cologny characteristic, but that condition doesn’t show up in the sillage. From the broader view, Quasar Adventure is short on overt drama, but there’s a lot of adventure in the details. All things considered, Quasar Adventure is a very fine fragrance that deserves more attention that it gets.

    I don´t think this perfume is just simple, i think it´s quite complex and in a way very genuine.
    It´s quite different and reacts quite differently in any skin creating a unique aura.
    yuzu,ginger flower,seaweed,and the amazing note of the fig(quite aquatic and juicy)make it as unique as Kenzo pour Homme in my opinion.
    For sure it´s a non for all perfume.
    Give it a try;)

    Not terribly complex, but one of the most pleasant of its genre. Yes, reminds me of many other things but the light musky drydown is very pleasant and at the price, it's well worth it. Similar to Echo, D&G Light Blue, Into the Blue, etc...but surprisingly good longevity.
