Rich and intense! Very warm blend of bergomot (bitter orange, not sweet) and true cedar notes. These stay with you and project for hours. Up close, you get the patchouli notes that are equally warm and give a smoky depth with a tinge of sweet caramel that doesn't overwhelm. PI NEO manages to be fun, flirty, charismatic AND mature. No small feat!
The top notes with cutrus-orange and bergamot are pleasant, and the drydown with a cedar note equally. Later a very ordinary patchouli is added. Not bad, but boring and of a limited longevity of less than three hours. No vanilla like the original, less sweet and less original.
Perfect scent matrix
I can drown myself in this scent ..
Strangely it reminds me of some happy times i cannot remember...it evokes happy feelings on me... does anybody else smell Roma from Laura Biagiotti in it???
Only thing is WHY they called this one PI?? Why didnt they just called it Neo ?? The original is completely diffrent.
Its a summer scent but i guess in winter it can make more of a statement.
I read somewhere it is based on toscanol where it prolongs strength and durability of aromas so it smells longer, i only have a test bag with a few drops, i need to try it good someday.
A winner for me, i like it.
Quite similar to Allure Homme Sport, but closer to the Versace Pour Homme since no characteristic creaminess first. What it moves away from the previous two is the anise and the quality of its ingredients, this is an extremely synthetic smell.
Actually Pi Neo is a step below the original Pi. Nothing innovative. It's a good scent indeed, but it smells inoffensive: weak cedar base with some vanilla. I'd pass on this one and get original Pi. Sillage, lasting power and projectium are weak-medium.

This one is OK. I give this an average rating. I spray this one on before I go to the gym. 2 sprays, I'm good! This also smells like something I smelled before. Expected a little better with this one.
