I just got 5 samples in the mail from theperfumedcourt which include:
-Heely Menthe Fraiche
-Amouage Jubilation XXV
-Creed Selection Verte
-Creed Jardin D'Amalfi
I got to say these are all absolutely amazing and incredibly complex. Way beyond what I have been able to smell at my local mall. What really stood out to me though, which I had really been wanting to try for a while, was Jardin D'Amalfi. At first I got a lot of fruit like tangerine and lemon with a bit of flowers. Then it became more floral, but the tangerine and lemon still stuck around. Then in the base I got some woods. It lasted for about 8-9 hours on me.
Jardin D'Amalfi really reminded me of being on the coast somewhere in Italy or France. I have been the Amalfi coast and this is EXACTLY what I would remember it to smell like. If I hadn't known the name of this fragrance I would probably think of the same thing. It just really paints a picture for me.
The thing is though, I really like Millesime Imperial too and I was planning on buying it until I smelled this. My question for you is what are your thoughts on these two fragrances? Which would you go with considering you could get the same size for about the same price? I really love the whole "Amalfi Coast" picture Jardin D'Amalfi paints, but I really love the watermelon note in Millesime Imperial.
