    Elite X for Men Skill by Umbro

    Here I am, already reviewing the third Umbro frag, but I felt I had to do this, since, just as correctly remarked in the previous reviews, this one is by far the best Umbro frag available.
    I would even go a bit further and say that this one, without being necessarily a cheap imitation of the latter two, is for the mass market what Cool Water are for the designer segment and GIT for the niche segment of the market. Moreover, this one is one of the few aquatic which exudes class and manages to be, in certain ways, less obnoxious and less alcoholic-smelling than Cool Water (though GIT is harder to surpass), but I always get the sensation that this one is a lighter, smoother, more luminous and more suave version of the Davidoff Bestseller.
    Skill starts out as a generic, bland, somewhat vapid aquatic, with hints of fruity notes, white florals and herbs, but then settles into something way more masculine, something making a lasting impression of elegance and good taste without trying too hard.
    The only minus point, though understandable for this price, is its longevity, barely outlasting 2-3 hours at most. But this may work as an advantage too, should one intend to wear a simple, crisp summer frag, intended to cool and refresh, rather than be a long-lasting projection monster.
