meh. i like it. it's okay. i wear it every once in a great while. but it's not one of THOSE scents. you know? it's not a la nuit. it's not a pure malt. it's not an issey miyake. it's not an animale. it's not a GIT or an Aventus.
it's good, but i only pull it out every once in a while. i'm wearing it today, which is what provoked me to write this review. today was somewhere between winter and spring. it was in the mid 50's. it was too warm for a dark gourmand and too cold for a bright citrus. so i went with this to split the difference.
i would have grabbed black touch, but it was in a different, colder room once i emerged from the shower, and i also ran out of two deodorants while applying them on each arm.i ended up with a weird concoction of citrus on the left (every man jack), citrus and patchouli on the right (nature's gate), and then a choice between this and la nuit, pure havane, insurrection ii, animale, and pure malt. the choice was clear.
a little gourmand, a little citrus. it's good, but it's not great.
Damn I really love this scent so much that it's one of my favorites
Why this is designated "masculine", as opposed to "unisex" is beyond me.
This is a fabulous scent.
End of story.
Probable one of my most favorite life fragrances to date. I can work with the EdT, but the EdP is smoother and creamier, IMO. As far as gourmand scents go, it is not cloying and in your face; it lasts forever, and on clothing as well. I get compliments for this one and consider it at the top of all the fragrances I've tried / owned / wore. Not for everyone, but give it a whirl at your local store!
Just put some on to refresh my memory via my nose!...
Stunning,breathtaking and could easily have qualified as a niche,"easily"....its dense yet light,stunning zesty lemon/berries,jasmine100% smell & lavender....Its almost a once in a lifetime scent....How they came up with this is anyones guess(process of ellimination though there are many many parts to this frag)...you'd be forgiven thinking theres just to much going on,but amazingly this just doesnt appear so....Its so well crafted....simply a joy!..smell very expensive,unique.!
Out of all the so called(hate the words)cheap scents its easily at the top and infact to my nose right up there with the niche scent...i kid you not!..
If nautica voyage etc gets a big shout out...then this should be bellowed from the roof tops!...
You just cannot go wrong with this...
Oh did i mention its lasts over 15 hrs on my skin and i can still smell it at this stage from 1 feet away from wrist!..
I even forgot about one day in the evening(7am sprayed) 10pm....i got this lovely woft and thought...wow!...then realised "yep there she blows"...She's genuinely amazing!...its a crime its at £30 100ml....
It acts way above its edt(stereo typed edt imagine,you know weaker than edp)sillage is crazy on me.....7-15hrs definately not a skin scent at all!
