....if this tempers that a bit, and gives it an overall less sweet character, It could be a winner, as the one had much redeeming about it imo.
That seems to be an O. Polge signature, I think. It's true at least for The One, Dior Homme (ok, Dior Homme isn't TOO sweet but it's close), Kenzo Power, and F Black by Ferragamo. He seems to utilize a sweet iris accord in all of them, modulating it slightly from scent to scent, but keeping enough of it intact that each scent is clearly his work. The only scent that I felt that accord worked in was Dior Homme. I have to wonder if that is at least partially due to a higher budget to work with.
Anyhow, I'm glad Olivier isn't the nose behind this scent. I really like the color of the juice and the notes sound interesting enough. Looking forward to this.
