    Christmas in a bottle! Very "winter" notes of spice and toasted nuts as well as an underlying mulled cider quality. Apple and cinnamon/nutmeg...anise and almonds. A lighter-than-usual note of patchouli and incense reminiscent of frankincense, but not at all heavy or smoky. I realize some of these notes are not listed in the profile, but, to my nose, they are there or at least the combined notes that evoke Christmas make it seem like all of those scents are there. NAVEGAR is very nice and unique. Sillage is not great and longevity is no more than 6 hours on clothes and skin. Probably a little limiting...but worth having on any sophisticated man's wardrobe.

    Genre: Woods

    My experience of the L'Artisan Parfumeur line is sharply divided. There are some I adore (Fou d'Absinthe, Tea for Two, Méchant Loup, Dzongkha); some I detest (Bois Farine, Piment Brûlant); some that disappear so quickly that I can't tell what I think (Dzing!, Passage d'Enfer); and several that just bore me (L'Eau d'Ambre, Ambre Extreme, Safran Troublant, Anans Fizz). To the last group I now add Navegar. On my skin Navegar starts out as a standard issue aquatic, with quiet cucumber-melon overtones and just a hint of floral sweetness in the background. Cedar, and then vanilla enter the mix within a few minutes, and there the fragrance stays for an hour or so, before exiting on a flimsy cedar raft. It's pleasant, it's inoffensive, but it's nothing I can get myself worked up about.

    One of my favourite masculine fragrances, Navegar is said to celebrate the prowess of the Portugese navy in a bygone era. And by and large it succeeds, in evoking sailing ships, a salty tang of wind in the sails, weathered timbers and old rope

    Welcome to Fantasy Island...

    Green galbanum opening followed by a tart lime and something mildly peppery melony sweet. Smelling NAVEGAR for the first time conjures up an image of a deliciously refreshing concoction of lime-infused anise-sweetened liquor, an exotic drink inhabitants of some lost paradise might serve as a welcoming gesture. I found myself relaxing, thoroughly enjoying the fragrance's laid-back charm despite the typical L'Artisan Parfumeurs' issues with projection and longevity.

    Pros: Delicious skin scent
    Cons: Projects minimally"

    faint lime and highly concentrated anise opening. also the pepper is light in my eyes. the base notes should be the star but play 3rd string to the anise.very disappointing looking at the promising pyramid and not smelling anything really but anise.

    The initial 5 minutes are great, with the lime and pepper displaying their prominence. This doesn't last for long however. The pepper remains, albeit faintly, alongside some equally timid dry woods which together constitute the drydown. There is nothing challenging about this fragrance, and in fact, it is quite pleasant, although the whole experience seems a little transparent and unfortunately brief.
