Respectable idea but poor execution from Wasser. The mojito/lime accord is distinctive, but is let down by ingredients that miss the mark, and the base is rather insubstantial. Essentially a boozy lime-mojito accord followed by at-times screechy florals and cedar-vetiver notes. Rather weak, and very fleeting - also quite a bit synthetic and cheap at times. This is all the more proof that accountants rule the roost at Guerlain, and that quality can be relegated to the disposal bin.
For those in search of a masculine fragrance which is completely inoffensive in any situation, yet still beautiful, look no further. This is a sexy, perfected version of Emporio Armani He. Though alleged to be an homage to the Brazilian Caipirinha, this is actually closer to the Mojito in character, with mint shining in the top notes louder than the lime. I'm not a believer in genderizing fragrances (and, indeed, get more compliments/inquiries from MEN when I'm wearing, say, SHALIMAR for example), but this is one of my top three "masculines" of all time - though it would suit either gender deliciously. The Eau de Toilette, though discontinued, can still be easily found online - and quite cheaply at that. Stock up for the apocalypse.
The opening with its lemon-and-mint dyad declares this as a summery composition. There are hints of booziness present. In the drydown a mixed bouquet of mainly white florals develops, and in the base a nonspecific woodsy undertone.
I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity - not bad for a citrus-laden product.
This scent is summary with citrus and mint, but nonetheless is not a bright refreshing blast, but more of a slightly darker and warmer composition. Imagine a lighter, less green and less complex version of Versace's Versus. At times this is a bit too generic. 2.75/5.
Solid non offensive spring summer office scent. Nice quality and decent longevity even on hot days in the southern US. You can get this for a decent price on several online retailers and ebay so if you are a fan of the Guerlain house go for it. It's not a WOW scent but nice. Enjoy!
This fragrance is wonderful conceptually and beautifully executed. Mojito as a high class affair. It projects and lasts better on me than some of the reviews here would suggest and it's above average compared to other fragrances I own. I have not tried the Intense version but will look into that when this one runs out. If the Intense version is superior (and it may be), then that's the only reason I can think of not to buy the standard Guerlain Homme. Quality scent, incredible value. Nothing to dislike at all.
