This has an initial 3 minute blast of the same melony citrus that Bulgari Aqua Marine hits you with, only weaker. The drydown is pleasant, mildly peppery and aquatic. Fades rapidly, but refreshing in its short life. After 2 hours just a bit of clean soap on the skin.
Probably best if you just want to spruce up a bit for a few hours.
Strongly reminiscent of the original. Since I already have the original, why bother with this at all?
Did I catch a strong whiff of 'commercialism' here?
There are very few fragrances that I loathe more than the original,but Summer Edition does at least sprinkle some glitter onto the Eternity name. Its a rather cliched take on a summer fragrance, with its fresh lime and bergamot opening leading to a lightly warmed middle and base. Its longevity is predictably poor, and it has very little to say beyond the pleasant opening.
Really beautiful lime/citrus with floral and a gin note. It is very refreshing and easy to wear in the hottest conditions and casual situations. A wonderful summer edition and I particularly like the lime. Very recommended.
I meant to try this one out when I first saw it in stores a few months ago (before summer began), but I loved ck one summer 2009 so much I bought that one right away.
When first sprayed, it is a bit leafy and fruity smelling= very good. It looses the leafiness quick but retains the fruity melon-y notes for a while. I would have bought this one today if I had not already bought a summer fragrance. If you think ck one summer 2009 is a bit too feminine, buy this-- they are in the same category. both are fruity and candy smelling without being sticky or overly sweet. I didnt wear this one long enough to pickup the peppery notes ThrowingShade describes, but I may have to take another look at it-- I have a good amount of citrus/fruity frags and have been looking more for a masculine scent for days when I do not shave. odysseusm places this fragrance well-- if you are looking for a citrus fruity fragrance, this one is pretty good. In the end, I would buy this fragrance If I came across it at a good price-- but as for now im set for "summer" fragrances.
