The first (and the last, since it doesn't last at all) thing you will notice about Oxygene isthat is powdery. The second one is that it's a cheap smell... but don't worry about it, it doens't last at all so you won't notice it too long.
Oxygene Homme by Lanvin, 2001
Rated #2612 in Fragrances
Transparent, salty,woodsy, citrus, musk. Longevity is ridiculous (lasts forever) for a citrus scent. This is my "pool" scent. I wear it when sitting by the pool, or swimming. To be honest though, it's a bit boring.
Excellent and unique fragrance from Alberto Morillas. I purchased it blind, but with confidence after reading notes and knowing who the creator behind this is! I love the depth of Oxygene Homme - this is more than just an "airy" scent...way more. I love the refreshing notes of Juniper, Artemisia and Coriander on the top - perhaps a little white pepper too. The middle and drydown are full of Cypress, Fir, and what can only be described as a blast of fresh air off a snow-covered mountain (not ozonic - but clean). Wonderful fragrance - Shamu nailed this one, although I don't detect more than a dash of vetiver (if any, at all)...for me, it is perhaps a nice white musk with the pepper in the dry down blended with the woods. A must-have for people who want something that can be worn year-round and smell truly fresh - not synthetic. Cool Water and CK lovers can go elsewhere...this is a scent for people who appreciate something more unique and true to its name. Solid 4/5 on scent with a 3/5 longevity. Overall - 7.5+/10 and recommended, especially for the very low price. This would be a great everyday office scent or one to put on after a shower, or even before going to the gym. Men and women can both appreciate it, but it is truly masculine. Another great piece of work by Senor Morillas!
Oxygene Homme by Lanvin - a peppery, airy and woody fragrance that is an all-season scent, and will work in the summer.
Take an aquatic, add black pepper and voila, Oxygene pour Homme. Not offensive, just nothing mind blowing. A nice safe office scent.
My first impression was rather, oh no, another of those horrible aquatics!!!!, what a disappointment, but after a few minutes the woods come like a freight train, I smell fir (maybe juniper), cedar, cypress and to top it off, the cherry of the composition, artemisia, that elevates the woods to a much loftier level. The longevity is mediocre at the best and a very faint white musk takes over to die in a whimper. I love white musk, but this is too weak. In few words, the opening is rather blah, the end is rather blah, but the heart is a masterpiece, and just for that it gets my thumbs up, it barely gets my thumbs up, but it gets my thumbs up nevertheless.. The worse part of this fragrance is the sprayer, it really sucks, hard to spray and uncomfortable, only A*men is worse than this horrible sprayer.
I think this is good.its kinda uplifting. I wore this to work and went to tesco to shop. This lady was behind and said to me 'you smell nice' .. This is the first compliment I have had since i cant remember.Funy thing is its the least expensive in my collection which includes amouage reflection, tom fords, and three creeds. Longetivity is Ok prob 6hrs, good silage.
I like the woodsy notes in this fragrance. The cypress in most pronounced and is perfectly complemented by the other woods. It has a pepperiness which combines with the woods to make me think of a conifer forest or eucalyptus tree (I have lived next to both). I am not overly impressed with most of the "fresh" or "aquatic" fragrances I have tried, this moves far enough away from these to be interesting. It is "uncluttered" (in an olfactory sense). It is one of the purest woody fragrances I own. As Shamu1 indicates the colour doesn't really match the fragrance. I am really drawn to this fragrance - in more ways than one. The general impression is somewhat like opening a box of expensive artists pencils I own. It cost me $10 US for 3.4 oz I- can't complain at that price.
I see Shamu has described it quite well. It's dry, bright, airy, clean and masculine. Consider this a workhorse rather than a show horse. Good choice for an office / car scent to help you in your time of need, or as a casual wear scent. Probably not one you'd miss and reach for sitting in your home though. Reminds me of Bleue d'issey, which strikes similar chords, but smells better, lives longer, and is not as linear. For the price you could do much worse.
A genuine designer scent at a drugstore scent price. This to me is a pleasant & inoffensive aquatic scent whose smell reminds me of Guy Laroche's Horizon (which I like), save for being less fruity and slightly more coniferous and sweetly peppery than the aforementioned in its drydown. Although I find the fragrance to be linear, like Horizon it wafts impressively around the wearer, with the white musk basenote being particularly prominent to my nose and making it attractively clean, masculine and long lasting. I can attest that this makes an excellent work or hot weather scent, and as a bonus it can be found readily at absurdly cheap prices that sets it up as a great choice as a workhorse fragrance. Good stuff and frankly quite remarkable value for money.
