This fragrance reminds me of Kyoto, Jubilation XXV, Oud Wood and Encre Noire. At such a price, this is the best buy. My favorite Occitane. I can smell the same cypres note than in Eau des Baux, but without the nauseating vanilla. Masterpiece!
My favorite rose scent. The aoud and the rose are incredible together. If you don't love the patchouli in Black Aoud, you must try this one. But I'm sad that this fragrance doesn't last long enough!
It smells cheap and it is cloying.
The dry down is similar to M7.
Not a good cologne!
Gucci Homme smells like cheap Hinoki, without the clean notes.
I really prefer Hinoki.
Years before, there was another cologne that doesn't exist anymore: Trend by Les Copains.
This last one was better too.
The opening is gross, almost sickening.
But 30 minute later, the dry down is heaven (if you love clean fragrances).
Sillage is good, longevity is excellent.
It is my comfort scent. Peaceful, a little sad. Sillage and longevity are moderate. It is very similar to Rock Crystal (Durbano), but it smells cleaner, not as smokey, not as spicy. I prefer it.
I don't wear this fragrance when I have to seduce others.
The dry down is heaven (especially on clothes), it comes about 30 minutes after the opening.
This fragrance is a perfect and simple combination of sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon. The lasting power is excellent. In the Profumum collection, it's my favorite together with Olibanum. Santalum is much brighter than Olibanum and I keep it for my happy days. This scent is not for an introvert!
You love Olibanum (Profumum)?
I like it too, especially the heavenly dry down.
Cristal de Roche is almost the twin of Olibanum, but stronger and longer lasting.
Oh, I forgot, it's half the price of Olibanum.
My actual favorite together with Hinoki.
Unisex and best suited for 30-60 years old people.
Thank you Olivier Durbano!
Sirupy leather with a dirt ash note.
Sorry, it smells the same than Pi - Givenchy to me.
And I don't like that.
But... no sillage and bad longevity.
Is it the reformulation?
You are a girl, you love lilac.
Don't try others, this is fresh lilac that doesn't smell like a granny but like a young classy lady.
I'm sure nothing else will come close to lilac like this one.
This fragrance is to lilac what Diorissimo is to lily of the valley (muguet).
Oh, and this stuff has a very decent longevity and the sillage is not overpowering!
This is a winner!
(This fragrance is for women, but some very open minded men could use it too, but I won't.)
First I thought it was a joke.
But no, they mean it, it is supposed to be a fragrance.
I asked about 20 people at my office to try it from my big sample.
They all hated it.
So it smells like lipstick?
Yes it does, even in the drydown.
Is it a problem for me?
It feels like a new version of "Le Mâle" for me.
Sillage is not too subtle, not too strong, just perfect!
Longevity is very good for me.
And look at this beautiful bottle!
Very nice top notes, but you have to keep the bottle in your pocket because the longevity is mediocre.
Should be thumbs down, but I still give it neutral for the nice scent.
However, if you like this fragrance, you should give Hinoki a try.
In my opinion, it is similar but smells better, more expensive and lasts longer.
Very nice fragrance, really BUT...
Eau de Parfum?
That's a joke.
Very bad lasting power on my skin.
Over applied, it makes me sick.
Won't buy it again, like the other Artisan I've tried.
The sillage is very very subtle, lasting power is decent, but this fragrance is just sooo sensual.
I wouldn't like to smell a woman wearing this, but I love it on men, especially on me. :)
The price is just a shame... but I couldn't resist.
It's my favorite between the Eau d'Italie scents, but they are all nice.
Great quality, very good lasting power.
On my skin, the rose is more powerful than the incense and it draws tons of compliments.
On the skin of my female colleague, the incense has more power than the rose, but I like it too (she doesn't, she prefers it on my skin).
The bottle looks cheap, but I don't matter.
I'm happy to own this EDT.
It's a little similar to Passage d'Enfer by L'Artisan Parfumeur, but lasts longer.
On my skin:
- smells cheap
- gives me headache
And it's overpriced, of course.
Creed's best millésime.
Nice smell, manly and mature.
Also, better lasting power than the other Creeds.
But way overpriced.
