Reviews of Pure Addiction

An invigorating green herbal shower (mainly basil and mint to my nose) with the zest of bergamot to further brighten things. Slowly the tooth-numbing sensation of cloves emerges from under the herbal cover, a natural outgrowth. Perfumes like this are all about aura – a zingy green mist with tart citrus and polite spicing. What’s not to like?
Well, perhaps the niche posturing – as the drydown is pretty standard ‘man cologne’ territory, a citrus-infused fresh woody, shower gel elevated successfully to perfume. And then there’s that crass name of course…

Smelling this from the sample vial, before having sprayed, betrayed what seemed like a cologne-style accord. On trying it on the body, the herbal and aromatic elements are clearly to the fore. They are supported by some sweetness from the patchouli and musk, although other woods are noticeable by their absence. As a result, PA is pleasant but not robust, redolent of what one might smell like having worked for a couple of hours in an exotic but overgrown garden. After about nine hours, as the effect dies, the overall impression is of a freshness that is rather pleasant but strangely anaemic. I would prefer Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme (square bottle, and if they still sold it) for a better transcendental essay on sage, and a genuine cologne if you want the masculinity of woods in the back. Not unpleasant, so warrants a neutral rating.
