I have finally
found and sampled the La Cologne version of Fleur du Male today. I was very excited to see what this release had to offer the summer cologne market.
As Sandy said in another thread, this is disappointing. When first sprayed, this scent could be anything but
FdM! It opens with a verrrry soapy laundromat smell in which only the faintest strains of FdM can be detected. After 30-40 minutes this rather irritating top/middle subsides and only then do very watered-down accords of the original emerge.
As with most of Gaultiers summer offerings, the strength and sillage is practically zero.
Now, about 90 mins after my liberal sampling, I must really concentrate on the spot on my skin to detect whether Ive sprayed anything at all.
Not kewl... and definitely not worth the inflated pricetag.
