    Gin Fizz is one of those legendary discontinued scents Iíd always longed to try, so I was delighted to hear of Lubinís pending re-release and obtained a sample as soon as I was able. I have no idea how closely the current fragrance resembles the 1955 original, but the truly effervescent lime and juniper berry top notes work as advertized. This scentís first few minutes on the skin are a gin cocktail holograph.

    Sadly, after that comesÖnothing. Once five minutes have elapsed, all that remains of Gin Fizz is a very light, tart citrus floral composition that I have to bury my nose in and snort to find. A disappointment.

    A fresh light green scent with a peppery herbal quality to it that makes it a very refreshing summer splash.

    The lemon and rose are the first notes that pop out at you with the aldehydes giving it its "fizz" quality. This was ahead of its time, looking forward to the lighter, greener scents that would dominate the 1960s and as a pre-cursor, it is quite fresh and pleasant.

    Top notes: Lemon, Iris, Ylang Ylang
    Heart notes: Rose, Vetiver, Benzoin
    Base notes: Oak moss, Sandalwood, Amber

    The packaging of the vintage stuff really appeals to me, unlike the contents of the current version.
    It may have been fairly nice, in a quiet way, once upon a time but a recent sample was a massive disappointment as it is just so bland.

    Given the reviews, I guess this isn't lasting on everyone but it is on me. After the scent airs and settles it is not as strong and shouldn't be, but it lingers -- gently but clearly. Just a spritz and a dab is enough -- too much and it can smell powdery, which is the only reason I'm not granting 5 stars. I spritz at the wrists and dab at the throat, and it lasts for hours. I lucked into an original perfume sample and compared it to the relaunch. I like the original best, but the relaunch is good too, and a close match. I also love Caleche and can smell similarities. Both are sophisticated scents, Gin Fizz being a bit lighter and fresher, with a distinct juniper tang.

    Pros: fresh, lovely blend of citrus, floral and woody
    Cons: can smell powdery if you use too much"

    I agree with the others, it doesn't last. A citrus and juniper scent that is more reminiscent of a dryer fabric softener sheet than a gin and tonic. Smelled nice anyway, but I need longevity

    Is this another re-issued fragrance that has nothing to do with the original? I suspect it is. Gin Fizz is an outrageously expensive EDT that is lighter than a cheap drugstore after-shave. I tried it yesterday. The scent remained for my skin for a good 20 minutes. Enough said.
