Eau de Prep is very nice indeed, most certainly a noteworthy fragrance. I prefer this to Tommy Man as it's lighter, fresher and more versatile. On the opening grapefruit is the prominent note which hangs around for a while then the juniper berry comes into play. The dry down is tonic water and suede. Sillage and longevity are moderate. I first put my nose on this fragrance in Spain and it couldn't have been in a better setting. Eau de Prep was made for the summer, it works so well in the warm climates.
Yes, the opening is a "gin and tonic" sort of sporty initial approach with ozonic-metallic-spicy nuances (a sort of more aromatic Lanvin L'Homme) with a notable juniper berries presence. Anyway the aroma becomes along the way less tonic and more resinous with a sort of "sticky-bitter licorice type" of ambery-herbal dry down (which is the best part). Too much citric-pungent and "watery" for my full taste, anyway.
For me It's a nice update on Tommy Hilfiger original fragrance's theme. It's less sweet than Tommy, but also spicier and fresher. Longevity is regular, projection is ok. I'd say they are like brothers and some people may think It's redundant to own both. It could perfectly be launched as another Tommy Summer version and nobody would complain about it.
Smells a little similar Boss Bottled but with grapefruit. At least to me it does. I actually prefer it more to Boss Bottled which is already a good fragrance. Probably won't get a lot of love here because of the Tommy Hilfiger name and the advertising around it. Scent is very youthful, casual, and charming. Not loud or overly confident. Projection is low which I think is done on prupose. The casual youth would not want to be obnoxious with their scent.
very well composed green'marine scent. good for spring/summer wear. not overly done but not simple.the grapefruit note hangs around the entire duration of the scent with a splash of green notes? and juniper. not for the older crowd but a pleaser for america's youth..
