    Genre: Citrus

    It's Eau de Cologne. The lemon is exceptionally tart, the herbs smell very natural, and it lasts all of 30 minutes. Max. Perhaps I’m being churlish, but Eau de Guerlain smells just as good, lasts twice as long, and costs a whole lot less.

    A burst of neroli, then bergamot, then rich lemon. sweet and refined, underscored by a subtle lime.

    An excellent Eau de Cologne, but there are others out there as fine, hence the neutral rating. The cost is way out of proportion to its value, compared with other achievements in this line.

    Silage is slight and like any of this type of scent, the longevity is at most an hour or two. It is not meant as a day long scent, having the purpose only to delight the wearer for a short time, with the light structure of a lotion.

    Very nice, but not worth the price.

    Almost Perfect!

    I've been trying about a dozen or so Chanel samples that I ordered a few weeks ago, and this is one of two so far of which I will be purchasing a FB. It is a wonderful, rich lemon, but "bright" where Allure homme edition blanche is "creamy". A perfect summer fragrance. It seems that I got better longevity than most on here, but a bit longer would have bumped it up to 5 stars for me. A wonderful fragrance!

    Pros: Light and Rich at the Same Time
    Cons: Below Average Longevity for the Price

    Love The Scent, Hate The Longevity...

    Eau de Cologne opens with sharp nose tingling lemon citrus with hints of supporting lime before the sharpness quickly fades as the fragrance transitions to its heart after less than 10 seconds. During the early heart the presentation turns to a clean fresh orange flower and green petitgrain tandem as its co-stars. The fragrance profile remains quite constant through the rest of its relatively brief life-cycle, with no change in the late dry-down to speak of. Projection is minimal with the fragrance almost a skin scent and longevity is relatively poor at about 4 hours on skin.

    The sharp smelling sour lemon open to Eau de Cologne is almost aldehyde-like in its nose burning intensity, but it is one of the best presentations of natural lemon in a fragrance I have sniffed to date. After the all too brief lemon fades, the structure turns into that of classic Eau de Cologne all the way with its orange flower and green petitgrain tandem, though the execution in this particular one is flawless. I find it hard to grade Eau de Cologne because for what it is I can't find any faults with the composition but the problem for me is in the classic Eau de Cologne structure itself (or lack thereof). The fragrance goes through its entire linear life-cycle so quickly that while I love what I smell while it lasts, it fades all too soon and requires reapplying every three to four hours (and that is on fragrance friendly skin to boot). The bottom line is the $130 per 75ml bottle Eau de Cologne smells excellent and earns a solid 4 star out of 5 rating that would be higher if others did not exist with more tenacity and a similar quality profile at lower prices like my reference EdC, Cologne du Parfumeur by Guerlain.

    Pros: Very natural lemon open, superb overall fragrance profile with flawless execution.
    Cons: Terrible performance metrics and simplistic linear classic cologne structure.

    Citrus, lemony freshness underlined with bergamot and neroli - a classic summer cologne that is straightforward and of heavenly legeresse. As a cologne one does not expect great development from it or longevity; I get about two hours of the latter. A good cologne.

    Luca Turin called this the definitive Eau de Cologne. Though I disagree with most of his reviews, for once I think he may be spot on. This is a fantastic citrusy, neroli-style, similar-to-4711-but-better scent. I'm liking it more than Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino right now, which is really saying something. I'm not finding logevity to be very good, however (a common problem with citrus scents), and that may prevent me from buying a full bottle. But it smells so good, I fear I may take the plunge.
