I like the smell.
It's citrusy cologne crossed with a touch of Cartier Declaration, and not too far off from Frapin L'Humaniste.
Edgy orange. Up close, it's a little rubbery on the open and into the heart. I enjoyed the sample but Declaration is still my go-to for this type scent and is a much better value. No need to overthink this one.
Female 1: 2.5/5, Impression: Tropical, fresh, holiday feeling
Female 2: 2/5, Impression: refreshing orange, but too sweet
Female 3: 4/5, Impression: very nice, summery smell
Male 1: 4/5, Impression: reminds me of the old CK, bit too citrusy though
Male 2: 3.5/5, Impression: smells OK for a woman’s perfume
Male 3: 5/5, Impression: a very fruity zesty smell
Longevity: Reportedly average. Has a life span of an ordinary non-niche frag.
Starts with an extremely visceral and evocative bitter orange – you can almost see and touch it. For those who love oranges this must be a delicious sensation. Luckily for me, very soon an additional note, I can’t really identify emerges, and it’s steers the fragrance away from the straight-forward, edible character.
It’s definitely orange for as long as it lasts, it gets slightly more abstract and a lot more sophisticated in less than an hour.
Fresh, pleasant and clean, but still pretty original.
I’m sure anybody could wear it anywhere without a problem. I’d be really surprised with strong negative opinions. It just can’t possibly be offensive to most people, unless they hate oranges for some reason.
Would I wear it? Sure, why not, especially on a hot day. Would I buy the entire bottle? No.
I have to agree with the reviews that mention a sharp BO smell thanks to the cumin note. Too bad since this scent had great potential as a sparkling bitter citrus.
