Dior Homme Sport (original) by Christian Dior

Dior Homme Sport is a very ginger dominated fragrance from start to finish. I can only detect ginger primarily and a little grapefruit in the top notes. Once it calms down a bit the sandalwood and vetiver do stand out a bit more but it's quite clear that ginger has top billing in Dior Homme Sport. It is important to note that Dior Homme Sport has no similarities with the superb Dior Homme. It would have been a better idea to give this fragrance a different name but from a marketing point of view Dior Homme Sport would have been perfect. Longevity wise i get a good 6 hours tops before Dior Homme Sport becomes almost too close too skin to detect. Sillage is good for the first 2 hours and gradually gets closer to skin. Good for hot weather because it stays quite fresh throughout primarily due to the prominent ginger note. Dior did well in not including a aquatic note in the frag and thank goodness for that. A rather average effort from Dior and in no way the worst.

Solo Loewe by Loewe

Solo Loewe is fresh, warm, citrusy and best of all its smells damm good. This is one of my best buys and if not for the higher than usual price i would be wearing this more often. I've worn this for many occasions and it never seems out of place. At first I was disappointed with the lack of longevity but after a few wearings i realised that my perceived lack of longevity was due to the very intense top notes and rather subdued dry down. Solo Loewe actually has good longevity and the sillage for the first 2-3 hours is quite impressive too. Great effort from the house of Loewe.

Gucci by Gucci pour Homme by Gucci

Gucci By Gucci Pour Homme starts off rather nice. But this interesting start slowly fades off within 2-3 hours and remains close to skin. I do detect some tobacco in the drydown. However to my nose this is a violet centered fragrance. Sillage is below average and longevity is slightly above average. This is not at all a terrible effort by Gucci but given its past record this is not a good indication of the future direction of Gucci in terms of fragrances.

Gucci pour Homme II by Gucci

This is a good effort by Gucci. Nothing groundbreaking here but GPH II manages to stand out quite a bit from the masses of fresh light masculines. What attracted me to GPH II is its versatility. Wearable in both winter and summer although i do feel this is more suited for summertime. Sillage is average and longevity is suprisingly good.

Dior Homme by Christian Dior

Great long lasting fragrance. Starts of a bit flowery but the dry down is my favorite part and it lasts for so long. Surprisingly my girlfriend hates it. She sneezes everytime i put it on. But this is strictly an evening frag. Haven't tried it before in the day and office. I'm curious about how my clients will react when i meet them with this frag on. Recommended for those looking for something different, long lasting, sensual and rich.
