Reviews of Optimistic for Him

Unappealing sporty deodorant fragrance at first, then dries down to essentially a Platinum Egoiste clone. Good longevity.

A metallic-spicy hyper generic Lanvin Homme's descendant with an usual herbal-refreshing angular vibe and a touch of ozone. I detect a whiff of plastic dissonance in the depth of the acute fruity-floral simil ambergris. Paul Smith Optimistic for him is extremely aromatic, virile, brash and fluidy peppery. The note of geranium is pungent, piquant and citric, the "optimistic" greasy wearer is freshly trimmed and bold at morning "there for bars ans souther venues of the non-work". Powerful projection.

Hilariously bad and generic deodorant in a perfume bottle, with a weird subtle sulphur smell on the very base. The genre belongs to that nondescript cheap "sport" family - that sort of scents which are "great for summer" and "at the club". I've never been to the gym but this is how I always imagine the locker rooms smell (after everyone's had a shower, I mean).

i still insist that the very best of Paul Smith is London man.. i bought this during one trip to london and it worked quite ok but i also think it's quite generic and used.

I have to admit, i bought this only because of the bottle. I was online and because i didn't find what i was looking for, i saw 'Optimistic' and thought, with such a great bottle, the fragrance can't be that bad...

Was I wrong... It's not bad, it's terrible. It smells like an old deodorant from the 90s.

I don't recommend it.

I gave this a try yesterday, and while there is a brief interesting grapefruit (?) note at the very top, it doesn't last at all and the fragrance turns very quickly to, as Kaern says, "boring generic dreck".
