    Default Zino Davidoff Opinions?

    Hey fellow fragrance lovers

    Saw this for £21 for 125ml, i've already owned both cool water and adventure from davidoff. Never seen this being sold on the high street in the uk, It has many postive reviews so is it good ?

    Thanking you !

    Lavender, "dirty" jasmine, a sour citrus, transitioning into a heavy patchouli/vanillic amber/wood base, with a hint of tobacco. Sound good? Grab it !

    It's a great 'dirty' masculine rose. Creamy with great sillage and longevity. There's a lot of love on BN for it and a lot of dislike as well. I happen to love it!

    Almost a "gourmand powerhouse", lush notes of wood, tobacco and spice

    It's an acquired taste. I enjoy wearing it from time to time, but it's something you have to be in the mood for.

    It is not listed on the Davidoff site and is disappearing from some of the discount sites. Maybe not confirmation but a powerful indicator.

    I love it too, my only criticism about it is that it feels a tad synthetic to me.

    Yes, it's a great fragrance, but it is, in my opinion, rather of it's time so I don't wear it too often.

    It always makes me think of a white jacket, open shirt and big medallion.

    A good nostalgia trip every now and then though, to a time when I had a full head of hair. Alas, no more....

    Great frag. I've been enjoying a mini in slightly cooler temperatures than we've got at the moment. As soon as the mini's gone, I'm ordering a bottle.

    Dirty animalic opening that reminds me of Zoo with nice flowery drydown. If you can get past top notes that lasts like 2 hours it is rather enjoyable fragrance.

    I am glad I experienced it but it is not for me.

    I just noticed it is in CheapSmells Autumn sale - £22. I have of course bought a bottle! The sale lasts until the end of today (9/10/2011).

    Just a heads up to other British BNers looking for this one at a good price.

    Absolutely true. It's nothing like Cool Water (which I like) or Adventure. It's a spicy aromatic rose scent.

    Davidoff Original is awesome too, but I like Zino even better. Davidoff is a balls-out powerhouse, where Zino is much more restrained.

    Zino is quite low in volume daniel. And I guess you like your frags with the volume knob on eleven.
    Although, it's very nice. I would say it's a floral woody. The sweet touch doesn't smell unnatural to me.

    One of my favorites when it was released. Blindbought several bottles this year, but I hate the fragrance now.
    Sour to my nose and to everyone that smells it. Might be an old batch though as it is discontinued.
    Tried giving the bottles away to friends, but they all passed it on, so I'll say: test first!

    I wore Zino today - the new label (possibly it was slightly reformulated or toned down - this was the last bottling before being discontinued) with the BLOCK letters of "DAVIDOFF" and A is stylized.

    Any way, it is very good on top and in the middle, but longevity is an issue. After a couple of hours, this becomes a skin scent. Cold weather here and I reapplied twice to get the notes back.

    However, Davidoff's "original" with the green juice - that is amazing juice and a truly magnificent bottle of fragrance! I want to get an older bottle of Zino with the script logo to compare...but, you cannot make up for the incredible richness of the long-discontinued original bottle by Davidoff. My ratings are Zino - 7.5/10 (Block logo) vs. Original/Classic green juice 9/10. One is good, possibly very good. The other is excellent.

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
