    But there's no information at all on the fragrance, even on the D2 site. I like the look of the bottle.

    Potion is an aromatic woody amber fragrance developed by perfumer Annick Menardo; notes include mint, angelica, thyme, gentian, cinnamon, cashmere wood, patchouli, amber and musk.

    I liked the vintage-style bottle.
    And the Eau de Parfum concentration always impress the male mass market!! Sounds that it will be more expensive than the regular edts

    I dunno, I was a real fan of the HeWood bottles. Really unique and eye-catching.

    Default Re: Dsquared2 Potion

    I bought this in Harvey Nichols in London last weekend as an impulse purchase, but already kind of regretting it. I do like the scent itself, but the sillage and longevity are *atrocious* especially considering that it's an edp. I'll be selling this for sure. I cannot bear wearing a fragrance that disappears after half an hour.

    Had a chance to test it today, and I quite like it: as somebody on fragrantica describes it, it kinda smells like a blown-out cinnamon-vanilla candle. Churchy, reminds me a little of Gucci pour homme 1. Longevity semms good, sillage is rather low. The SA was so kind as to give me a 1.2ml sample, can't wait to test-drive it in public.

    Default Re: Dsquared2 Potion

    I tried it yesterday, its definitely to my taste. Whatever ingredient is in the dry down (some kind of musk?) is something I have smelled and loved on myself after random testing orgies, but never been able to remember what fragrance it came from (cos it obviously didnt appeal in the top notes). I liked this one all the way through though, at least on first wear.
    Longevity was reasonable on me. Projection was ghostly

    Apparently this stuff comes as a perfume oil as well. Scroll down to see the bottle with the little eyedropper here :

    Wow, you rarely see an EdT, Body Wash, Body Lotion, Deodorant and parfum oil for a new masculine fragrance. Props to DSquared2!

    I wrote to TPC a couple of weeks ago, asking when they might have it, and received a note back saying bluntly that they had no plans to purchase it.

    Which I thought was a little puzzling, given that it's Menardo's new thing, and seeing as how they carry others from that line.

    Others might want to drop them a line, and see if they respond with the same answer ?
