Hope you like it! I don't want to be Slayerized!!!!!!!!!
If I don't like it I'll slayerize u all over with Bijan for men! lol
Moods is the balls. I've got three bottles of it, that's how big a fan I am of Moods. I agree with Derby that tobacco is the predominant note, but everything's so perfectly blended - the rose, leather, moss, patchouli - you don't really smell any one note sticking out. It's the smoothest powerscent I own.
I don't smell much similarity to Acteur, where the rose hits you in the face like a brick. Acteur is great, but I think Moods is a lot better because it's better balanced.
Yeah, I already understood that it's more the rose like in Zino, which I also own and really adore! (you really can get Zino here everywhere for cheap prices, 125 ml.........but it's probably a sign of discontinuation anyway, though this is already going on for almost two years now................guess noone here buys Zino!) anyway, I am getting more and more curious now as Acteur which I also own is really well blended in my opinion and is considered to be like a top niche scent in smell etc., though I like the rose more in Zino than in Acteur which is more tea-like and gets after a macho opening way more softer and more smooth and less macho, while Zino keeps on screaming masculanity. Ah well, maybe it doesn't make any sense what I am saying as there is no vanilla in Acteur mixed with the rose as there is in Zino. Can't wait for moods to try!
@Shamu, me again, with 1 more question about Moods................
How come that (after reading all reviews, threads etc.) that eg. u say u get 24 hrs longevity (which is a lot!) and one reviewer writes about 3 hours and others write about short longevity as well?
Quite a big difference to me in some reviews regarding longevity. Is this all "dry-skin-related"?
Hi Slayerized - just thought I'd chip in. I can also testify that Moods lasts a long time - I wore it for a long day a couple of weeks ago. I applied 3 or 4 good splashes from my mini 5ml bottle at around 9am and by around 8pm when I changed and showered I could still smell it strongly. When I washed my shirt a few days later it still smelled of Moods - mainly the tobacco & patchouli!
I've never been able to get along with Moods. To me the notes are very 'screetchy', grinding against each other on my skin and it makes me feel a bit ill. I don't know quite what it is about this one but it's not for me. I've tried a few times but I may have to walk away from it.
I don't know why it lasts so long for me. I guess it's either skin type or my sense of smell. Granted, it doesn't smell strong after like 4 hours, but I can still smell it for about 24 hours. It's just not super strong after a while; that doesn't mean I can't still smell it.
Get this too: there are some frags that give me terrible longevity but last a good while for others. Eau Sauvage, e.g., is one of my favorites, but I can't smell it at all after an hour or two. I've read posts from other BN'ers who say they can smell it all day with like 3 or 4 sprays. Go figure.
As far as I know Eau Sauvage is really well known for its bad longevity by almost all Basenoters (max 5 hrs) but is compensated by its fine sophisticated smell.
Just received my Krizia Moods this morning!
It's the 100 ml splash bottle as only the 50 ml here goes with a spray. I chose the 100 ml splash as it was exact the same price as the 50 ml spray.
Splashed some on my arm a few hrs ago and to me the fragrance is really smooth and earthty with definite patchouli and tobacco notes. In the vibe of Fahrenheit (which I never owned but know the smell of) without the gasoline. It's a pretty close scent but it's there. The first minute of the opening reminded me of a little softer version of Bogart's Witness. To be continued.
