Reviews of Chypré Fruité

Competent emulation of the genre. Smells quite pleasant. Utimately not quite fully chyrpe-enough for this gal. Must be those darn IFRA regulations. The oakmoss has that shallow, fey quality to it, not Montale's fault I'm sure. . .you can tell it's not the real deal. Still far better than 95% of what you can find on the market today. I like it enough to consider full-bottle despite lack of ground-breaking originality. Don't try it expecting a modern-day Mitsouko. On me, long-lasting but subtle. Lady-like.

I was prepared for an assault of the fruity kind but was taken aback by this rather subdued yet sophisticated interpretation of the classic chypre. The start may seem a little fusty with a powdery veil over a dusty fruit peel accord but as it warms up on the skin, the powder fades and the chypre accord takes over. CHYPRE FRUITE may not have the same depth of character as Guerlain's legendary Mitsouko, but the quality of composition is something I can appreciate even if the scent itself speaks to me of an acquired taste.

Pleasantly surprised about by the lack of sweetness and by the dryness of this. It's ultra-refined, powdery, mossy and quite powerful, but in a good way. The florals teeter on the edge of stuffy, but stay just on the right side. For lovers of old-fashioned chypres, you can't do much better. As an aside: the two Montales I've tried so far seem to have something in common at the base; a signature that brings to mind the original Fendi. This, scent in particular would satisfy someone who mourns the loss of that powerhouse perfume.

Hmm... A tart and sour, but still candylike and nondescript, fruit accord on an extremely discreet chypre base. No richness here - this is a light, even thin, scent. I'm not very impressed.

This is a gorgeous fruit chypre - very sophisticated. It reminds me very much of a drier, salty, less boisterous Bagdley Mischka. It wears surprisingly light for such rich fruit accords. The sillage is medium, and lasting power good. I highly recommend this fragrance for those seeking a very traditional French chypre style perfume.
