An optimistic,cheerful component present in its evolution on the skin.this is originally niche-level scent,the quality,complexity and sophistication are all there.not a scent that screams sex but not unsexy either.a classy blend of wild blackberries and clean musk.like the very refined lady who catches the roguishly handsome stable boy's eye and lets him know she is off for a walk in the woods.Woody,Fruity, Aromatic,Unisex,Sensuous,Fresh,Casual,Night or day all at the same time.
It starts out succulent with blackberry noes over deep oakmoss and what smells to me like a rich fruit liqueur.the greenness from the viole leaf leaves adds to the freshness. while the dry down is a soft patchouli vanilla with wiffs of cinnamon.i was expecting it to be a dark summer scent but it is quite a bit different.perfect for middle aged gentlemen&gentlewomen.totally if you love a lovely summery perfume with dominant notes of blackberry then you will not be disappointed.
Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
Nice violet blast on the initial spray. The patchouli calms down the composition to a decent wood, amber and vanilla fragrance. Not bad, but not worth the price IMO.
Bleeker Street is just like about a dozen other fragrances that use violet in the composition. I can't tell if Bleeker is supposed to be a green fragrance because there is a somewhat fougre touch going, but it's smothered by the ambery-vanilla base. It's masculine and non-offensive, but not memorable at all.
One of those ubiquitous grassy-green pseudo-aquatic designer scents that smells rather pleasant from a distance, but gratingly annoying up close with the house trademark woody amber base fixative overload. Yes, it succeeds in extending the scent's longevity but considering the base's abrasive and overbearingly synthetic profile? No, thanks. I'll pass. My non-perfumista wife sums it even more succinctly - with a sneeze.
This smells like what I would envision a flower laying on a lily pad in a fresh pond in a cloud forest would smell like. It's floral and somewhat aquatic without being overly floral or aquatic, with some similarities to Polo Blue or Issey if memory serves. The same slightly earthy floral note that draws me in to keep applying my sample is the same note that keeps me from buying a full bottle. Taste is subjective, but the note is ever so slightly off and it bothers me after about 30 min.
Still, I recognize the quality of the composition here and its performance is above average. Definitely worth a sample if you like the aforementioned fragrances or if you like your green fragrances a little watery.
