Reviews of GF Ferré Lui / Him

I'm a beginner in fragrance reviews, but I really like this one. It has a well rounded blend of mild citrus and cedar. Great for summer nights. I've got many compliments.
I bought Azzaro Visit thinking it was very similar; although it has some similarities this one has more class.

Sweet, smooth, rounded, woody and spicy. An effort was put to compose this one. I've got nothing negative to say about this fragrance. I see some connection with Joop! Jump, Cerruti Pour Homme, Chopard Pour Homme and Azzaro Boarding (wich is not in the directory). Spring scent with some elegance, although it could hold well in all seasons except summer when due to heat it might dissipate fast. All in all thumb up, and too bad it's not mentioned here and there, I think it deserves it.

I see this juice, in all its peppery smoothness, as a Jacobs Bang's predecessor. Smooth, almost edible, creamy musk and a shadow of powerful cardamom, tasty spices (i smell the yummy and warm nutmeg) and patchouli, that's the main characteristic of this pleasant juice. There is a really notable  prickliness in the air though the juice is basically smooth. The musk is the main trait of the smell on the side of the pepper while the duo heliotrope and benzoin creates a soft and almost creamy bed under the musk, also in order to balance the peppery pungency. The patchouli is so notable on the side of musk and the fragrance is masculine and temperamental in spite of its softness. I think that the perfumer intended to play the game of the contrasts. The dry down is a smooth woodsy (cedar) musk and shadowy-dusty patchouli. Some aromatic greens and woodsy spices close the round. I would say that the smell, while not properly realistic, turns out not chemically gassy as unfortunately happens to many contemporary olfactory horrors. I prize  it.

I really like and have grown to trust Gianfranco Ferre fragrances. This one, LUI, is pleasant and light...and somewhat of a letdown. It is ambiguous in it's orange and spice notes which are slightly obscured by coriander and benzoin. This tends to have a medicinal smell. It evolves cyclically through it's notes and winds up in a muted green place. Not bad, maybe just a little boring. Good for daytime.

I am suprised that Lui have such small number of rewievs.
Today i was at the perfume shop and lady that worked there recomended me Lui as a woody scent , cause i told
if she have somtehing woody.
After no more then 10 minutes after no good or bad opening, Lui showed his real face.
It was so fresh but woody-heavy fresh and/or soapy heavy. After 1 hour i still smell that, but now a little more
that soapy part but still heavy, high volumed, not empty with holes, and also not in your face and hard.
Very good scent. Maybe not so special, so one of those that makes you think of them like some kind of mistery scents, but very nice clean/soapy not citrus based woody drydowned scent.

Azzari Visit rebottled. Maybe not completely but it is hard to tell the difference. GF is a little sweeter, maybe smoother, but these 2 are brothers without a doubt. No nutmeg here, but it is in Visit...both also have cedar.
Smells like sweetened spices (nutmeg, cardamom, coriander) tempered with cedar, although the spices can be too much for some. I love visit, so by default, I must love this iteratrion...that is how close they are in smell. Also, GF comes off a bit more modern than Visit, this is a good thing.
