I'm one of the few who has no
problems with longevity on Adventure, unless 10 hours is too short
. I wonder if we're smelling different things, too, as I really found it quite unique if not entirely adventurous. The amount of spice used (a lot, on me), the sesame note, and the amount of cedar in the base for me (again, a lot!) makes it stand out quite a bit from other designer releases as decidedly more masculine. I also find that its progressions are clear and seamless.. it almost walks straight down the pyramid on me (and I'm *not* one who automatically smells what is listed in the pyramid. I've got most of these essences as essential oils and know quite clearly what they smell like). I find that this is one of those frags that it is easy to grow anosmic too, and I notice it more clearly with only 2 sprays to the chest that I do with say 4 or 6.
Anyhow, that being said I'm really looking forward to trying Adventure Amazonia, too. Hopefully they'll have it at the Younkers I'm going to today, which did carry the original adventure. Someone on Fragrantica reviewd it and said it was quite similar to Adventure in the basenotes but simply had a fresher top.
I'm hoping the base is similar but lighter than the original, that there's more fruit added and perhaps an aquatic note. Hopefully I'll be able to report on this later today (though if the store also has Oceans, that might get the skin test as I'm trying to pick up a few aquatic scents for summer)
