Reviews of Gendarme 20

(Looks like this one is discontinued. I bought it ten years ago at Nordstrom, and I haven't regretted it since.)

Super-fresh, clean, and distinct hyper-version of the original Gendarme! Borders on soapy, but more so like a nice detergent without the in your face elements.

Highly recommended...if you can find a bottle!

Clean linen white starched shirt meets Prell Shampoo. Perfectly inoffensive in every way. There may be performance issues, not sure. Recommended. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Has the same gendarme scent with a huge kick of "white linen", i prefer this if i want to smell like the original but with a little more drive to it.

Gendarme 20 is a great soapy fresh fragrance that's perfect for a hot day. Starts with the lavender in the opening and settles into a soapy clean, but masculine fragrance. Great for days when you want to take a break from fragrance but still smell good.

After wearing my sample, finally, I checked the Gendarme site out of curiosity, and it seems that this doesn't exist anymore. That's a shame, but for the moment, it can still be picked up by doing a little search engine magic (unlike Mojo).

Anyway, it smells terrific. It's clean and fresh, and actually has some potency and longevity. Also, there are subtle things going on here in terms of green, citrus, and leather. And of course the dominant note is lavender. I can't add much else in the description department, but I can say that I had a woman inappropriately invading my space to speak with me today, and since Gendarme 20 does smell delicious, I feel that it is to blame.

G20 is the most similar to the original EdP, but perhaps even more concentrated. This might be nice in theory, but in practice I find it includes too much of the wintergreen-like component that I found traces of in the original. The opening is more alcoholic and sharp than any of the others, and once that goes away, the florals remind me a little of those in the Acqua di Parma Colonia series. Later, as more herbs make their presence known, the wintergreen seems to turn into a very gentle eucalyptus, which would be an improvement except that it also starts reminding me of old-school suntan lotion. I really don't know what to make of it, except to view it as a slight overkill, but I'd recommend it if you like sweet mint or wintergreen.
