First try in men's fragrance for Bulgari, and what for a try !
It was the 3rd Bulgari scent I bought and I'm always surprised how their colognes reek of elegance and quality, even if they're not in the high-price category, I have the feeling to smell rare, precious and mysterious. Especially in my town/country, the Bulgari scents doesn't seem to be really popular, I almost never smelled those ones in street/club.
Well, the beginning of this scent is really citrusy-nearly-alcohometallic, and that could make you think it's a really sharp cologne, but quickly the "zen-effect", as mentioned before, appears and give an overall feeling of freshness and cleanliness.
Then, as your skin's heat make evolve the scent, it becomes warmer, muskier and less fresh, but still keeps the little touch of citric in the background. It remains comfortable and soft though, I guess due to the Darjeeling note. The drydown is more woodsy, the citrus almost totally faded and what you have now is a clean soft musk according well with the natural skin smell (at least mine).
In the men's line, Bulgari pour Homme have probably the most "classic" feel of all, maybe due to the high dosage of musk with the touch of citrus added, used in a lot of other frags yet. But the difference here is that it doesn't try to say "hey, I'm a manly man male" if you see what I mean, it's rather relaxing, self-assured, still masculine enough but not in an offensive way. I'm sure I would like it on a woman too, I guess it's the tea note which gives it this unisex side.
This is NOT weak, I sprayed one spritz in my elbow yesterday and even with a shower today, I still can lightly smell it when I put my nose on my arm. Nah, It's not weak but yes, it's subtle, really subtle, so subtle that often, the wearer is not able to smell it on himself, but it's still there, believe me. Like in all the Bulgari scents, the sillage is moderate and close to the skin, but you don't wear Bulgari colognes to impose your presence anyways.
It's really gentlemanly in a modern way and so I think it's suitable for all those who are looking for an elegant and not at all excentric scent, but avoiding yet the "like my neighbor" smell.
Timeless and distinctive, thumbs way up !
