Mysterious, this fragrance certainly is. Dark, slightly masculine, spicy and intriguing.
I'm not very familiar with Armani scents however I am impressed by what I have tested so far. Onde Mystere is unique and daring, yet pleasant and attractive.
The bottle design provokes a sense of darkness and underlying gothic tones. Although slightly masculine, and having the versatility to be unisex, this fragrance will not make a woman feel unfeminine. The roses and spices balance this scent with softness and sweetness.
I didn't have a problem with the lasting power, I thought it lasted quite well on my skin, yet the sillage is not all that strong. I like that aspect however, because this scent works well as an intimate fragrance, a scent that lures people in and captivates them depending on how close you are.
Onde Mystere is a very likable fragrance. I will be interested to try the other fragrances in this Onde series.
Developed by Maurice Roucel.
I like it. There is nothing here to keep a man from wearing and enjoying this.
It has a fresh, enjoyable quality. The potentially heavy and sweet elements are restrained.
Rose lurks appealingly in the background, along with a very light incense note.
I am super-sensitive to vanilla and find hardly any here.
Thus, I find this attractive. It is sheer and perhaps short-lived, but otherwise it is an admirable light summery scent.
This is from my all time top 5 perfumes. It is amazing.
Ehm... am insult to rose perfumes.
This is bad medicine.
It is not really an 'onde'. More like a little wiggle on a water. A sugar-y, D&G Light Blue-esque water that is way too light and feeble for its own good, and hefty GA price.
Bottle, sans the tassel, is lovely.
