Reviews of Umbro Speed

Pretty heavy, far from citric, more pachouli, redolent of joss sticks in an Indian haberdashery. At 1 for 50ml in Poundland, it is ludicrously cheap, so I assess it with that in mind.
Surprisingly lingering, it will mix sparingly with other lighter cheapies, e.g. Lidl's Bellini or a drugstore musk, to make an experimental cocktail, rarely the same twice. Or try a dash with something with lemony top notes, e.g. Beckham Instinct, to add a bit of otherness.

I never thought I will review an Umbro frags, but some testers in a local supermarket intrigued me, so I tested this one with curiosity and skepticism.
So, the result was bearable, especially for a mass-market frag, but uneventful. Nevertheless, this frag has some complexity, quite intricately layered in various notes taking one's attention from time to time, in a very erratic pace.
First, there is a burst of citrus, very soapy and astringent, but that lasts only for few second, closely followed by the impression of a quite faithful Givenchy Gentleman-copy, one could even feel the slightly "dirty", rooty and muddy patchouli and musky notes. Then I thought that I was going to smell all day a Givenchy Gentleman impersonator, but no, the final drydown took one more harsh and overpowering turn.
From Gentleman's leathery masculinity to the heaviest and of the most concentrated gourmand frags in the world, as if someone managed to extract the notes of AMen, Sculpture Homme and Le Male and magnified them to an almost unbearable strength. If someone likes undeniably, overtly sweet frags of a nearly unrealistic intensity, this one may be a deal.
If one does not find any liking in such notes, then this one will just be potent, but still forgettable.
