I just bought a reformulated batch not knowing It got reformulated.Smell is still great but no silage or projection. Still get great compliments when a female gets close enough. Still last around 5-6 but mostly a skin fragrance. Why YSL Why!! Say it ain't so. Say it ain't so!!
a warm spicy transparent scent.
a very good combination of lavendar and cardamom in the opening. the fragrance gets slightly sweet and woody as it dries down. it comes off as a transparent type of fragrance in my books. one of the first fragrances in my collection. never got bored of it. the performance is just good.
great warm smell, not too sweet, not synthetic .
longevity is good
projection i can't tell but it seems women like this one , no compliments for me yet but i notice something makes them feel good about the scent.
this a safe bet for fathers day present
I have had this fragrance for quite a while (3 years), I find it quite a subtle fragrance after the initial blast.
The bergamot and cardamon dominated opening lacks another element which could make it more exciting,( a pepper accord, perhaps?). The citrus has all but disappeared within 10 minutes.
Drying down to base of vanilla and wood, it's quite a comforting skin scent not unlike some vintage ladies perfume.
Sadly, on my skin, it doesn't project too well and I can only just smell it half hour later.
I do love the scent but longevity is only moderate. ( in saying that, a friend had just commented on how good the perfume smelt, from 5 meters away, half an hour after wearing it, but I could hardly smell it on myself!)
It's a scent that I would wear to a casual dinner out with friends. Still, a 'good' scent from a great fragrance house that is Yves Saint Laurent, which has produced so many iconic perfumes.
I find this scent way overhyped. I cannot comprehend why it is so praised.
It is a well-blended but totally forgettable with nothing better than other perfumes. Also, I was really shocked how weak it is. I can barely smell it on myself (that's why I tried it from 3 different sources). The longevity is ok - circa 6 hours.
