This is a review for the EdP. The combination of notes in Rykiel Homme and the blending are outstanding. The yuzu and mint are there in the opening combined with the berry. The opening reminds me of those multi colored dinner mints. What I get next is that big jasmine note that is like the line drawn in the sand and really the dominant note. On the other side of the line you have the nutmeg and spices giving it a really nice comfortable and outstanding dry down. I'll be honest and say I'm not a fan of this until about the 20 minute mark when everything seems to meld together. Once it does though it really exudes class and uniqueness. This is a good one and very under rated.
With a bottle like a tee shirt, I thought "a casual vibe."
And yes it is, but really there is more to it inside.
The sweetness of the berry—the citrus kept it checked,
And the dry, green notes determined that I give this Homme respect.
At play, at work, at banquet—this one will smell good on ya,
More people should discover it, and so I thank you, Sonia.
Light and clean mint with a touch of amber and cinnamon. Not cloying at all. A nice gym scent. Projection and longevity is average and won't offend others around you.
Definitely one to try.
What a pleasant surprise. I have the 125ml bottle of the EDP and I'm very happy.
It's hard to detect the individual notes described above, as it seems so well blended. To my nose I can smell a definite minty floral accord, but not a strong mint. It almost smells like the mint is an afterthought.
I imagine that this could be worn just as easily with a suit and tie, as it could very casually with jeans and a jumper.
This smells so much more expensive that it actually is. Totally underrated!
elegant, soft and crisp one of my all time favourites.. not present in a disturbing level but stands right for my skin.
