Reviews of Y Eau de Parfum

A very clean, safe and extremely versatile scent. I find the initial blast to be quite pleasant, uplifting and strangely addicting (I like what I like). The dry down is what really sets this apart from the EDT as it just really has more heart and soul to it overall, more refined, a bit more mature (not old man mature) and comfortable with what it is and what it there to do compared to it's EDT counterpart.

The longevity has significantly improved over the EDT, and I found out the hard way to be careful not to overspray, 2-3 sprays max will last you the majority of your day. The projection of this was a bit tricky for me, as instead of it being more of a constant and slowly fading scent it would come and go in waves which caught me by surprise the first day of wearing it.

The versatility of this scent cannot be understated, you can wear this during any season for any reason and it never feels out of place.

Smells to me like every other designer right now and not good to boot. Gross synthetic soup

A tad much to my nose, but I thought the EdT was perfect, so...

A more of everything version of the original, so yes, a true eau de parfum.

It's really well executed, strong, spicy, sweet, woody at the end. Very millennial!

Better and more interesting than the EDT. However, this is a very plastic fragrance, very synthetic and there's barely anything natural about it.

Subjectively - I'd pass this.

Objectively - A good mainstream scent that does well exactly what it's supposed to do.

Fruity notes, primarily from the apple and bergamote, are very obvious and strong, however not in a fresh manner but oppulent, thick. I dare say even tad bit dark. They did a good job combining these fruity accord with the woody notes and tonka.

Logical, realistic view: so is this something new? Not at all. There are plenty of smilar stories already told in the 2000.-2010. designer era of fragrance. Even this decade gave similar stories, one obvious being CK Reveal Man.


Albeit there's no ambroxan note here, the signature of it is definitely here. Since Dior pulled this one off in Sauvage , there's barely a notable fragrance without this sublime note that emulates ambroxan even though there's none of it as direct component.

Subjectively: too fruity, too synthetic, too sweet and too plastic

Originality 3/10
Scent 3/10
Longevity 7/10
Projection 7/10

Conclusion: of course it's not that bad or terrible! It's not a "mistake" or whatever. It's just obvious for what it is and it has a simple purpose. One has to sympathise with this scent at least to a degree. So, neutral rating from me.

If you want to know what fume enthusiasts mean by "synthetic", all you have to do is give this stuff a quick sniff. That being said, I go back and forth on the stuff as a whole. The opening is no doubt a synthetic cocktail, but it weirdly works on some level, the use of apple makes it less cloying than it should be. I have to admit, there's something annoyingly pleasant about it. The "clean" synthetic opening gives way to a boring but inoffensive middle warmth, adding to my confusion as to what I really think about it. Its base is even more boring, and tempts me to push it into thumbs-down territory.

There are better options if you're want to go this route, but it's also not the worst thing you could put on.

The ginger and bergamot is dominating the top note phase, quite refreshing but not unpleasant, although the ginger has quite a harsh side at times.

In heart notes I get a more floral direction, carnation and geranium, with a fruity apple note that is not too sweet.

The base is a petrochemical cesspool of vanilla and an agglomeration of nonspecific woods.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A spring day scent that is not bad, but generic for quite some part of the development, and overly synthetic, at worst in the base. 2.75/5.
