Reviews of Sentiment for Men

Unlike Magnetism for Men, which wasn’t a masterpiece but was surely a decent and interesting piece of “mainstream creativity”, the equally discontinued Sentiment pour Homme is well worth the discontinuation in my opinion. It’s quite hard to believe IFF stars Ropion & Bruyère signed this. It is basically the quintessence of “nondescriptiveness” in a bottle: extremely, almost pointlessly artificial, with some really clumsy and acrid green-fruity-citric notes reminding of the worst Calvin Klein or Hilfiger fragrances on the market (or any countless imitation of those). There is no concept, no inspiration, no direction, no evolution, just a detached, almost nonsense plastic concoction of pungent stuff. That type of blend which seems being based solely on one creative brief – “just throw in anything people seem to like. You have 24 hours. Here’s ten dollars.”. It’s fruity, slightly medicinal, it’s fresh and green, metallic and plastic, a bit sweet, woody-peppery, oddly cold and transparent. But above all it’s just cheap and boring at once.

On my skin I get a very pleasant opening. The top notes include a mandarin-like citrus with a lemon twist, together with a fruity undertone that includes hints of lychee. The drydown is composed around light pepper notes that strike me as somewhat generic, and the base notes shift toward woodsy impressions, at times even whiffs of pencil shavings. Overall a good opening that leads to a mediocre drydown and an acceptable finish. Soft sillage, limited projection and five hours of longevity. I am adding all this up to deliver a neutral score, trending towards the positive though. 2.5/5.

top notes are great to my nose : clean, fresh and pleasant.really like the openning; after about 4-5 minutes the smell turns out exactly like 'truth' from CK to my skin.. just surprisingly figured out that they launched the same year :O i think its discontinued

This kinda reminded me of cherries or tomatoes spiced up with some cinnamon. Almost had a sugary salsa scent to it. Not a fan of tomatoes or cinnamon. Not sure where the pepper is supposed to be at, but when the scent finally dries down you get a synthetic vetiver woodsy thing. I thought it got better by the drydown, but never great.

I could do with our without this one. I own a sample and that's about all I will own with this one. Not to say that this is a bad fragrance. This is another one that you should sample first.

My newbie nose smells generic but pleasant lime on top for about ten, maybe fifteen minutes -- then a very nice synthetic sandalwood that I suspect is mostly Iso-E-Super . . . which makes it something I quite like. Not much else. Good for layering, as it plays nice with others, being simple.
