Bleu de Chanel Eau de Toilette by Chanel

Very under-whelmed. It's been awhile since I have posted a review, so its a shame it had to be for this.
I didnt have high expectations when I read about the notes, and well it sank below that.
Not sure what the market is here. Young, sporty, nightclub? I find it quite synthetic....the grapefruit comes oon a little bit strong. It smells like something that has come out in the last 3 to 5 years....a Davidoff, or a Boss...I can't quite put my finger on it yet.
Go for the Gucci Pour Homme or Givenchy Pour Homme (red) if you want something commercial but done better.

1 Million by Paco Rabanne

I recall smelling this last October in Singapore airport. It was being sprayed EVERYWHERE and was therefore 'quite' noticeable. For this reason I didnt bother...overly sweet, cloying...and I was gagging for a beer at the time! Interesting enough havnt bothered with sampling it over the last 10 months....but just a few days ago my nephew bragged on how he got such a good deal for a tester. He was wearing it at the time, and admittedly I didn't mind it. Coming into spring here in Australia and if worn lightly it would be far from un-pleasant. Furthermore, it was bringing back a faint nostalgic memory of a summer years ago....due to a similar scent I owned most probably at the time. I just could not figure out what it was though! It was bugging me...... then this morning it jumped at me....Samourai by Delon! One Million goes a bit heavier on the amber, but the familiarities are there.....for those of you looking for a more aquatic, and (in my opinion) more versatile version of One Million, try to source out Samourai. Ahhh yes, fond memories of a summer many years ago.
Having said that, one million gets an ever so slight thumbs up. I wouldnt purchase it myself, but would not pass it up as a gift thats for sure!

Just Cavalli Him by Roberto Cavalli

Starts off like something akin to Zegna, then dries down to the notes that remind me of Zanzibar (the ginger). I would find it wearable, non-unique scent. Its the kind of scent that I like, and would hope to get as a gift since I own both Zegna and Equus ;-)
