Euphoria for me is nothing to write home about. Synthetic freshness in the opening followed by synthetic sugary middle and a synthetic sandalwood drydown and I almost forgot the 'rain drop' fits somehwere in this mess of a fragrance.
I am just surprised how no one has mentioned its cat piss drydown. Seriously, I agree with all the previous reviews and the scent smells good lush/green but one thing that put me off is that strange drydown.
It smells nice to begin with, a typical Hermes fragrance one would say. there is something in common with all of them (jardin sur le nil opening) very pleasant and organic it dries down to vanilla/benzoin softness. the notes are (from the sample package): A wooded harmony, both vegetal and mineral: Cedars, vetiver, grapefruit, peppers, benzoin
I spent so much time searching for a fragrance that smelled similar to Donna Karan's Black Cashmere, but for a man. Until Tam Dao. A beautyful incense with a hint of herbs and citrus in the top note perhaps it is: dark, smoky, sophisticated and uplifting at the same time. It evokes far away places, deep ancient forests, churches burning incense and spirituality.
Hey, come on! I think Freinds is a great clean uncomplicated scent, wan't offend anyone, the only problem I see here is that many people would associate it with Pledge and similar house cleaning products as they overused actual CITRUS and now it's doomed forever! This is a great alternative for Clean (much raved fragrance-dunno why, although completely worthles for its staying power). friends to me smells: citrussy clean, shower fresh, like you just rolled in citrus leaves (petitgrain), or lemon drop if you like and here is the description and notes:
Moschino Friends Men is a tribute to friendship and made in Italy. The packaging alludes to the lively atmosphere of Italy, where the spirit of friendship is rich and passionate. The fragrance is citrus-like and colourful, with the strong freshness of the Mediterranean. Together, the packaging and fragrance form a special union - a special friendship - that creates a youthful fragrance, natural and spontaneous, suggesting the deep and sincere emotions of friendship. It's a new, lively and bright olfactive harmony, that blends the sparkling start of the citrus notes of the bergamot from Calabria, the tangerine, and the orange to a floral heart of courbon geranium and real Paraguay petitgrain, refreshed with a breath of Mediterranean sea breeze, and enwrapped in wood-musk notes.
Philosikos is an identical interpretation of a FIG tree, the tree's milk and the tree's fruit, so forget the fruit itself(which btw in a perfume can be overly sweet, sticky and cloying), this scent feels like laying under the fig tree in a hot summer day. Greenish fragrance, with a hint of coconut (Ever broken a leaf from a fig?)and just a hint of white cedar (freshly cut cedar tree or sawdust if you like) A great and unique fragrance, not many fragrances in the today's market smell like Philosykos!
