This is not one of my favorite of PI line.Original version is much better for me because i find it Romantic, Seductive and Lovely but this one is so far from it.Common,Average and Simplistic.
Yes in my opinion it is not Original and i can not say something particular about it minus The bottle!Definitely one of those The bottle is Gorgeous and Charming but The scent is another narrative!
At the begining is Fresh when first sprayed The Bergamot and Mandarin orange are apparent but not too strong.In fact is a combination of Citrusy,Clean and Youth.The base is like plastic on my skin!
Anyway PI NEO is more a DAYTIME scent than a Nighttime.It is suitable for the office because it is inoffensive and it should be worn in the SPRING/AUTUMN weather However you can not have expect a Amazing or Unique fragrance.
Longevity?Above average on my skin.
This is a pleasing fragrance but not as great as the original Pi. not at all.
The opening is a fresh, green and sweet citrusy scent along with lavender and musk.
The citruses here are not tart but they do have a fresh feeling and mixing with sweet and green notes creates a sweet and fresh fruity aura that kind of smells like green apple.
The sweetness is both in vanilla way and musky.
Also I can smell some fresh lavender here as well that gives the scent an aromatic bitter fresh feel.
Nice and pleasing opening but smells very generic.
As time passes fresh and green (specially green) feeling of the scent settles down and scent gets more sweet and powdery. I can also smell a peppery aroma in the background that smells like soft black pepper note (maybe it's patchouli) and at the same time with these changes lavender gets stronger.
The base is an aromatic bitter lavender note along with soft powdery sweet smell and some fresh notes in the background and a little bit of pepper and overall creates a bitter fresh and very masculine aroma and I like this part of the fragrance most.
Projection is average for around half and hour and then it sticks to the skin and longevity never goes more that 3 hours on my skin!
Nice smell specially in the base of the fragrance but bad projection and longevity.
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.
