A nice fragrance from Lanvin. I regret having given away my bottle many years ago; in my older age, I think I can appreciate the musky, watery quality of Oxygène than I did then.
Juniper berries and coriander jump out right from the start, mellowing into the steady, musky blue things soon thereafter. Requires at least one recharge throughout the day, and as others have mentioned, the longevity isn't great. Nonetheless, Oxygène is a novel scent to have in one's collection for casual wear most of the year (esp. cooler weather).
I am not sold on this one, they didn't get it quite right. Although it is not listed, I have read reviews about the overbearing presence of pepper. Whatever it is I have to agree that there is a cloying element that spoils this and prevents it from being the light and fresh Summer fragrance that it might otherwise have been. I have an EDP version but get average sillage and longevity at best. Like many other reviewers below I am giving this a neutral. It is not bad enough to dislike completely and not good enough to merit a thumbs up. Quite forgettable.
OXYGENE is delightfully Refreshing and Addictive. It is a Familiar and Repetitious scent for me as It is like some of the fragrances in my collection. Casual,Summery,Clean,Light,Cheerful,Inoffensive,Carefree, Youthful and Enjoyable.
A fresh breath of Coriander and Cypress Completion by airy impressions of Juniper and Myrtle and a Soft Base notes that result is an Inspiring fragrance and Reminds you of the name of the Fragrance.It is also quite Gentle on your senses without being boring.
This Aromatic fragrance is a Good choice Especially if the very strong smells make you Indignant. Seemly for an Active Character who Likes freedom. A Happy scent in a Cloudy Summer day and Any CASUAL occasion. So easy to wear and The price is actually Reasonable too.
Longevity?My only complaint about it as the Longevity is not Admissible on my skin.
Another scent seemingly intended to project freshness that falls short of being invigorating. A blue box does not a fresh frag make.
Pepper (not listed among the intended notes) is overwhelming, definately dominating the other notes (which seem overly familiar). These combine to bring about a very medicinal scent.
It's not horrible, but it's not good either. 2/5
I'm a fan of Alberto Morillas works. he really knows how to create a pleasing fragrance specially fresh ones and this one which is one of his old works is very nice smelling and pleasant fresh woody masculine fragrance.
The opening is very fresh and energetic. at the beginning I can smell a fresh and zesty fruity scent, something like mandarin or tangerine plus very bright woods and very mellow floral notes in the background.
It's a very nice smell and you can't find anything bad about it. it's generic indeed but it isn't a bad thing in general!
As time passes by the fresh citruses settle down and that woody part starts dominating the scent. the mid is a fresh and dry peppery woody scent that is a little bit synthetic for sure but overall it's pleasing and masculine. there is no big change in the base except I'm can feel a clean and very soft soapy aroma beside that fresh woody scent.
Projection is OK and above average and longevity is around 5 hours on my skin. a good choice for casual use in hot summer days when you're going for walk, shopping, going to the gym and this type of daily works.
Nice fresh but very dry peppery scent, and I mean too much pepper!!!
not good projection and average longevity.
