Reviews of Geranium Odorata

A Fisherman’s Friend, rose, some smoke.
Fantastic combination. Why doesn’t it seduce me with its floral hamam vibes?

Genre : Modern floral fougère

Description : Starts off with the fruity side of iris while holding its dry powdery violets in reserve. Geranium comes through behind that with its characteristic green, minty and citrus rose. There is a brown woody undercurrent and a hard and dry edge at the top. As the iris/violets and geranium merge the profile loses a bit of character.

Image : The mixture of dry piquant powder with bitter violet accents, combined with the red fruity-rosy geranium is like a finely cut suit with floral waistcoat.

Material quality : Generally good but not perfect, some off notes in the opening phase.

Conclusion : Geranium Odorata is a tailored masculine floral which is not bad at it's dandified schtick but it lacks versatility.

Rating : Ok but the peppery floral gets a bit tedious.

This is a geranium-centred creation, with a touch of bergamot supplying a bit of added freshness. The geranium is all right, but not particularly vivid or intensive.

The drydown adds rose - a bit generic - and a touch of light pepper, the latter also a touch too anaemic.

The base develops richer accents. A pleasant tonka and woodsy undertones rule the base and m then fade away gradually over time.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and a solid eight hours of longevity on my skin, with the last couple of hours being very close to my skin.

This is a pleasant spring scent, a floral that is well-made technically but that disappoints as some ingredients are rather generic and average. The geranium is definitely coming out well, but overall it does remain in the realm of a standard product with little excitement, originality or depth. 2.75/5.

This is a pretty scent. Any aromatic, citric, or herbal aspect vanishes seconds after application. The geranium comes through which is green, slightly rosy, and - only initially - ever so slightly peppery. This is followed by a dry down of geranium-tonka accord with a hint of sweetness, slight soapiness, and a white musk aspect.

It's not as natural smelling as it could've been given its genre and style. This would make a great gents' shaving range if they could make it more natural, aromatic and make shaving cream/soap, oil, and after-shave.

The finish smells like a Histoires des Parfums fragrance that I can't quite put my finger on - possibly, 1899 Hemingway.

For a fresh geranium I suggest Geranium pour Monsieur, and among the Diptyque colognes I recommend the beautiful Eau Rose or the excellent L'eau de Tarocco.

Bergamot and geranium – at first I thought I’d love it. The aromatic opening is quite bergamot-y and geranium-ish and it suggests good things to come. But then it all-to-quickly morphs into a total-geranium ambiance that is unsatisfyingly soapy and synthetic …

In fairness I have to say that the geranium note is pleasant in a certain way… that is…if you smell it far enough away from the skin, but close to the skin it smells sharp and annoying.

It doesn’t take long for the fragrance to draw down to a light and unsubstantial wood base with an iffy aromatic aura. It’s possible I was expecting too much, but I just cannot warm up to this one. I think this product is (untypically) unworthy of Diptyque.

As an EdT, this is a light scent -- and lovely.
Essentially it is very delicate rose note freshened by a light crisp leafy green note. There is a hint of a peppery bite, and the vetiver and wood add depth without directly asserting themselves.
A refreshing summer spritz, not profound but very enjoyable. Pretty, but not sweet and easily wearable by a guy. Subtle, sits close to the skin.
Don't 'scruit it -- just enjoy it. :)
