I feel privileged to be the first reviewer of this fine, under-the-radar little gem, from the fashion house GANT, of all places.
GANT by GANT, opens up with a strong burst of fresh sparkling citrus lemon. The top notes remain fairly prevalent for a good 30-45 minutes, which is quite incredible in itself and a testament to the quality ingredients and finesse of perfumer - Jerome Epinette.
Once the opening has finally bid farewell, the lavender shows its face, only to be consumed by the all powerful sandalwood and leather notes, which are followed nicely by a dash of amber.
This is clean, freshness, classy, manly and rich, all rolled into one.
A sleeper of a fragrance and no doubt a true masterpiece in my mind, so easily outperforming almost all far more expensive designer offerings, which themselves pale into insignificance when compared to GANT, like dust blowing in the wind. Longevity is silly, we're talking 15 hours easy, whilst projection holds at a full arms length throughout the entire duration, meaning you will of course be noticed, without the need to reapply.
As versatile as they come and without question signature worthy.
Now, please keep this secret discovery to yourself, I don't know what I would do if this somehow became 'mainstream'...
