Insense Ultramarine Ice Cube is an interesting flanker. It still has the fruity opening of the original, but includes a fresh alcoholic minty note that does sort of have the character of ice.
This doesn't seem to stray too far from the middle & base notes of its predecessor. There is no mistaking a floral (albeit muted, when compared to the original) component to Ice Cube’s heart.
In drydown the base notes are not quite as earthy as Insense Ultramarine & I don’t get that slightly musty sort of smell which reminds me of rain. Still, this is a really nice & fresh & masculine summer fragrance. Unlike some of its other brother flankers (which are nice in their own right), Ice Cube still retains the essence of the original Insense Ultramarine; with a nice minty twist.
Longevity and sillage are both average.
