Peppery, sexy retake of the original Spark for Men.
It spices up Spark's notes via the grapefruit opener, then mellows out through the vetiver, accented by the musk and patchouli base. Has a definite "spike" sensation compared to the more watery original.
I would say one would either prefer this as a pseudo-intense flanker, or stick to Spark as the basic, though pleasant, original offering.
Cardamon/pepper scent.. no evolution.. stays close to the skin.. no basenotes at all
Cons: Claiborne "
Never have I so thoroughly agreed with an analysis as I do with SirSlarty's review below.
Spark Seduction just takes the boozy, synthetic amber-iness of the original Spark and slathers it in a fairly pleasant grapefruit.
Too little, too late, though.
I received this in a swap. I had tried the original Spark and thought no more of it until I saw a flanker. I see flankers as either an attempt to rectify a flop release or to milk more money out of the line (I'm looking at YOU Curve). Sedectution makes the original Spark look like a heavy, unbearable and overly sweet alcoholic fragrance and turns it into a lighter and more "fresh" feeling fragrance. Unfortunately the seductions doesn't last very long but it is quite pleasing. Woods and boozy notes on top and a fresh zingy pepperiness throughout with a sweet musky base. NMice but still has that "I'm a Liz Claiborne fragrance and I'm very chemical and synthetic" balance to it.
I like both Spark Seduction and Spark and unfortunately gave my bottle of Spak away. I wish I hadn't because I think I liked the original Spark somewhat more. I rarely wear this. It's a nice fragrance but if I don't wear something and it just sits in the draw what's the point of owning it. I can't remember the last time I wore it. Maybe I'll put some on today. For some reason I don't feel that I stand out when wearing it as I do when I wear other fragrances.
Noticeably different from regular Spark, I prefer Seduction because it is less 'cheap booze' and more 'sweet candy pie'. As mentioned earlier it doesn't have a drydown perse but it stays nice and coherent thru out its scent life. Not bad.
