Thread: Laguna Homme

  1. #1

    Default Laguna Homme

    Applied this frag yesterday around 5:00 pm (3 sprays) and 9:00 am this morning it was still going strong. Really a pleasant and unoffensive scent. Cheap also. I really like this one by Salvatore Dali. Anyone else feel the same about Laugna?

    You're right about the longevity, I really wanted to like this one but I just couldn't stand that vanillic note.... :-[

    Tried this several times from a sample lately. I like it. It's interesting and nice. Something I'd be glad to wear if my gf wanted me to, but otherwise, it didn't wow me.

    Tobacco, Sandy? Hmm...I am not alone in this assessment, rather in good company!!

    Reminds me of vanilla pipe tobacco!! [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    ;D ;D ;D

    You guys are so right about the tobacco!! The citrus/fruity (kind of tropical) opening soon gives way to a delicious sweet tobacco scent (although tobacco is not a note in this frag), and the dry down is one of the most pleasant sweet vanilla (not PI sweet vanilla!!) scents I have ever smelled. This is really nice.

    Yeah, my first blind buy, and it was a success. Really an awesome fragrance, kinda reminds me of body heat though, but in a good way. Like sitting on a beach in the sun sort of.

    Laguna is dominated by tobacco. The smell of a freshly opened cigarette packet. The same applies to Vanizia (women's), too. Laguna is so dear to me.

    Freshly opened cigarette pack? Errr sorry, not at all.

    In my earlier post, I stated that the citrus top notes of Laguna give way to a most pleasant sweet tobacco scent, although the basenote directory does not list tobacco as a note in Laguna. After further checking out the notes on this frag on the OSMOZ site, I see they list blond tobacco as a midnote.

    What is BLOND tobacco????

    At least we now know where they great tobacco scent derives from. It is nice!!!

    What about the notes of tropical fruits. I think I smell mango peel in it. Maybe a little pineapple.

    in my opinion this one really sux terrible smell and drydown.
    found a suitable place for mine in the trash bin,is the only
    fragrance I ever owned that I had very negative comments on
    "that really smells bad" I responded,"I agree it really does smell bad"

    Whofarted,

    Maybe that "awful" scent you thought to be Laguna was one of your FARTS!!! If so, you threw away a very good fragrance.

    Same here. I tried so hard to like it, but that vanillic note was a deal braker for me.

    Hey Jim!

    Blond tobacco is a lightly cured tobacco....rather soft.


    HOW-EVAHHH!!!


    I think that the tobacco-esque smell is the result of the vanilla, tonka, sandalwood, and cedar all blending together. Just my take on it!!!


    ;D ;D ;D

    Thanks duxoop772,

    Hell, you think I should have known that. Born and raised and still living on "Tobacco Road". Still never heard of Blond Tobacco until now.

    Thanks,

    I must be the only one who gets no longevity out of this one. I'm lucky if it lasts more than an hour, and when it does it hangs extremely close to my skin :'(
