Reviews of Iceberg Homme

The TOP & Heart notes are very dominant for about 10-15 minutes and during the drydown. After 1 hour there is a faint lingering of mostly vetiver and maybe a hint of either amber or musk. Ironically, my wife and I both sprayed 4 equal pumps on one arm at the same time. After 1 hour the fragrance was very faint on me and still going nicely on her. After 2 hours, barely a hint on my arm, can totally smell all the heart and basenotes on hers. There is even a very nice smooth almost powdery sandalwood scent. After 4 hours her arm still projecting with all of the basenotes still lingering nicely, on my arm, nothing. This test was done without any activity other than hanging out and watching movies. Although this fragrance starts out as a nice possibility, it lasted less than 2 hours on me and well over 5 hours on my wife. Go figure.

a big chance lost

incredible fresh green scent for hot weather but it's barely a skin scent, it could have been a near masterpiece of simplicity and splendor!

Pros: very good citrus green
Cons: inexistent sillage and longevity"

The articulated blend of citrus, green-aromatic and floral notes is refreshing, sharp and a bit pungent with a good take on orange, geranium and lily of the valley . A juice recalling to me a lot the great Mila Schon Uomo vintage in a more floral vest. The neutral/opaque vibe balances a deeper and sweeter spicy/floral woodiness. Some green elements on the side of a touch of amber and geranium arouse a well modulated toilette vibe (barely barbershop and finally slightly soapy) over a woody and musky base. The combination of flowers, spices and dry woods reminds me effectively the less green Eternity and vaguely Ck One. Pleasant, masculine and versatile. Not bad.

For all those guys out there who want a fragrance that is reminiscent of the rich, lemony, citrus eau de colognes of the 80s (ie. Armani Eau PH, Versace L'Homme and YSL PH), this is a more modernized version, if only marginally so. The lemony and citrus top are well-constructed and the smell of the top notes immediately offers the impression of formality. I would guess that this is why people have recommend this fragrance as a office/work scent. Next come the more herbal, fougere elements to reign in the citrus and add more masculinity to the accord. Finally, the fragrance finishes with a prototypical base of sandalwood, amber, vetiver, and musk a la Armani Eau PH. Like I said before, its a much more safe and modern take on these distinguished classics.

So why the neutral rating? For me, it comes down to two key points: 1) from the beginning, the herbal elements dominate way too much, so the scent is confined to a "soapy" accord (literally like Irish Spring); 2) This is very discrete, and even though it lasts well, its hard for the wearer to notice it. If you want to smell like Irish Spring at work everyday and not raise too much hell, this is an ideal choice based on the great price.

I have a mini of this, about 4mls of it. I have to dump its entire contents in order to get any scent or discerning notes. I got mostly geranium (a herbal minty) and a musky amber. While good, it's waaaay too subtle to be of practical use. Can be found cheap.

Calvin Klein Eternity's european cousin, complete with all the standard euro exuberances. Better than Eternity? I think so, but you will have to apply a bit heavy. It expands and flouresces in all the areas Eternity will simply show you. I like it. Is it worth the purchase if you can find it? Yes...if you've once had Eternity and no longer have it. It will be like visiting an old friend who is now more lively and entertaining.

That review was based on a sample. I got a full bottle last year and the frag s totally different. I wouldn't compare it to eternity anymore. To my nose it is a sweet white pepper, though no pepper is listed in the notes. I love this and I think it is still very relevant 20 years after. I wear this when I want to throw that curve one seems to know what it is. And that;s the way I like it ;)
