Reviews of La Collection Croisière : Long-Courrier

It's masculine, and generic. I get much wood and spices. I can't smell the vanilla or cocoa. It's just alright.

Edit from neutral to positive: I can now smell a beautiful salty vanilla. It’s not sweet. Very subtle, happy fragrance.

Upon first application, I had that “been here before” reaction, and in this case, that’s not a bad thing. This is a very appealing, maybe crowd wise, woodsy scent. The scent is not original, but you can tell the ingredients are of high quality. Decent, but a pass.

Long Courrier bears a strikingly resemblance to some lens wipes I have. It has a milky feel that’s crossed with Windex — a sort of witch hazel kind of aroma. I personally don’t mind the smell of witch hazel, and truthfully, Long Courrier is the easiest to get along with from the line as it doesn’t have quite as much brine or white musk as the others. It’s ephemeral, but while it’s there, it’s pleasant enough. It’s a sort of woody vanilla with a slight powder effect and a dab of cocoa. But after 30 minutes, it’s pure ethyl vanillin and a light cocoa. While all four of these scents are surprisingly synthetic, this one takes the abrasiveness down a notch but it ends up smelling cheap.

Easily the nicest scent for me among these four new offerings of “La Collection Croisière” by Guillaume, together with Jangala. For three main reasons: it smells nice, quality, and creative. Basically Long Courrier is a really peculiar sort of talc-powdery “fresh” gourmand with a salty-aquatic texture, which manages to blend brilliantly all the nicest features of all these diverse inspirations; the dusty, nutty and masterfully tamed down sweetness of a gourmand (mostly cacao here) which bears also a really light sort of boozy-almondy note, then an evocative and totally compelling watery-aquatic feel, and cozy talc-amber-floral powderiness which connects Long Courrier to the great tradition of Oriental powdery scents, from Villoresi’s Teint de Neige to Kenzo Jungle l’Elephant, with a subtle “guerlinade” underneath providing an elegant touch of classicism to the overall laid-back “sunny exoticism” of this scent. Now imagine this, with a truly remarkable watery texture that is basically limited to an aqueous-salty-musky note, subtle but more than enough to change the entire mood and bring in a “seaside” feel, pleasantly refreshing the musky-powdery-gourmand side. And giving it a truly unique look. The whole blend smells really classy, much distinctive and cleverly composed, and it also shows a really nice evolution which slowly brings Long Courrier to a woodier, drier territory. The sillage is quite discreet, which is good, but the persistence seems a bit too short for me. Still overpriced for me even taking into account it is a nice scent, but bottle-worthy in case of (massive) discounts.
