     I just came across this after seeing a post on another forum.

     

     There is no mention of what is contained in the formula or what the difference between "Canvas", the female version or "Concrete" the male version is.

     

     

      "All natural".  Hmmm.....really?

      And I actually ordered a bottle just to "take one for the team". beer.gif

     

     I don't really know what to make of it.    I know that unscented moisturizer will work similarly and so will more occlusive substances like petroleum jelly but the moisturizer is a PIA for me in the AM and anything greasy or occlusive is a no go.   This may be a mineral oil concoction or something similar that will just sit on the skin providing an occlusion to keep the fragrance from fully penetrating.

     

        Lastly, I also have to wonder about their claim of the fragrance smelling like it does on a strip as opposed to ones skin personalizing it and I do also wonder that, if the substance keeps the fragrance from attaining the drydown as usual, what will happen?   Is the drydown going to come similarly to how it does on clothing, which is eventually but much slower than on bare skin?

     

      Gimmick or ???

    New 'Fragrance Primer' Supposed to Make Scents Truer and Last Longer

    Just curious if anyone has tried this?  Wouldn't it be great if it worked?

    You can probably achieve the same thing (if this is not also the same) by applying an unscented oil-based moisturizer first.

    I would think so also.

    I would say its a sham. Either use a non-scented lotion or apply some to your clothes.

    That would be taking it steps too far for me.

    Perfume is perfume and this feels like a gimmick.

    I agree that its a sham. Just use scent free lotion or spray on your shirt.

    Worth a try for me,

    I got a very dry skin,

    Body chemistry is only something I hear about,

    No perfume has ever worked on my skin, so why not!

    Cool, they even sell a male version which is the exact same useless product in a different bottle. Seems legit. 

     

     

    Do the words written below even mean anything??? 

     

    "Concrete is the yang to our yin, the wow to our bow... in other words

    Our dude version of our fragrance primer, specially formulated & tested to ensure that your fragrance last's longer and stays truer to what the designer intended than going through the day canvas free. It's even been shown to last until the next morning which is great for all of you "dirty stay outs", we can say that on the men's primer."

    Well - Guerlain may not have done it first, but they did have a similar product.  But their primer actually had a bit of an odor, and I found that it really only worked well with their own fragrances.  But it was the same principle.
