Reviews of Mercedes-Benz

This is a so-so violet fragrance, with its masculinity backed by a so-so effort at Vetiver and black pepper. Somewhere underneath lies a cucumber-like accord. It really is ok for the price but you can see where the shortcuts have been taken. For instance, the listing of lemon, bergamot and mandarin in the opening promises a juicy and zesty opening which potentially could have elevated this fragrance to another level, but in reality it is just a muffled attempt at indescript citrus. That's probably why they list three types of citrus, because they could not decide which one they had actually created. The citrus fades quickly and then it moves into the vetiver, black pepper, violet combination for which it is reknown.

It is worth noting that the black pepper here only has the spicy facet, without the woody facet that makes black pepper so good in higher grade fragrances.

The comparisons to Fahrenheit are off the mark. It actually smells a lot more like Aqua Fahrenheit.

An overarching citrus permeates this scent, with bergamot and vetiver enforcing this impression, and a very gentle spiciness underneath. The drydown adds violet notes that develop into a woodsy direction with a light patchouli and a whiff of amber adding a touch of harshness. Maybe is would be nice in spring, but it is quite generic and mediocre on my skin. Moderate sillage, adequate projection with six hours of longevity.

This is not unpleasant but quite average really. I would stick to their cars. 2/5

At first spray I got a whiff of leather, but it quickly turns into a super-citrus with a touch of galbanum. An hour later the cedar is starting to peak through.

I don't know if there really is a leather, an accord that made me think of leather, or wishful thinking due to the car, but I get a little bit of a new-car leather smell in there.

If the citrus dies down ever and there is more pronounced leather base, I will update this review...
