Where the love of fragrance began for me.
Very nicely composed living legend of a scent by Dolce & Gabbana...still relevant and wearable even after so many years!
D&GpH oozes with citrus notes in a pleasant way, tempered by lavender and pepper in the heart. A piercing fragrance that gets noticed, needing tact when applied. The Intenso flanker turbo-charges this one by really emphasizing the citrus and spice with a healthy dose of woods.
I purchased this fragrance after reading and hearing so many good things about it. This was definitely a blind buy. The first spray turned me off totally. The dry down is a composition of poor projection and longevity with 30 minutes tops. Yes, i cant smell it on me even when i travel in my car just after spraying it.
D&G PH is not my cup of tea to say the least. Well it could be the reformulation that has chomped on its performance but i am not a fan of this scent anyways.
This smell makes me sick and gives me a sore throat. If not my worst purchase, this scent will be my biggest regret, a waste of money.
Dolce & Gabbana, you sure can do better.
I believe this was reformulated; I have the older version. One of the most powerful longevity and sillage I’ve encountered, the only cologne I have in that ballpark is Ted by Ted Lapidus. Not sure how to describe this one…a bit chemical, a bit rubbery, a lot of things I can’t describe, and all masculine. I don’t recall ever smelling anything like this. Not for every day, but paired with a suit this is certain to leave quite an impression. 10/10 for originality.
I have an original sticker bottle from 2007 and the first reformulated version I received as a gift in 2009. To be clear, the original is the only one worth messing with and will be the main subject of this review.
I don't know if I smell all the notes listed in the pyramid, but here is what I do smell:
This combo of ingredients is fantastic! The reformulated versions are missing the lavender + tonka/tobacco and that is not okay in my opinion. The scent lasts about 10 hours and gets better the longer it has been on your skin.
