    Default Serge Lutens 5 0 clock ?

    What do you think about it's projection and longevity , i am thinking about adding to my collection. But i can only smell it when i put my nose to my wrist.

    Although I don't own it, I have sampled it on a few occasions and I never had problems with either.

    It's OK, but nothing I have ever felt compelled to purchase.

    Totally agree....only sampled it once, but I remember thinking it didn't last particularly long on me.

    Same here, that goes for most of the other Serge Lutens imo.

    What in the world are you waiting for? It is fine, fine stuff. I bought it about six months ago, and it's been one of my best recent additions to the collection. I feel so smart and sophisticated whenever I wear it, especially if I apply around 5 p.m. You'll love it. Just say yes.

    Five O'clock au Gingembre does wear close to the skin, but I find it lasts all day. It's a rich, delicious gourmand oriental.

    same. I recently considered purchasing it and wore it a few times, but I have decided that I enjoy too many others more. Great top notes though.

    It is a projection master.

    agree with all , is a fine an relatively "fresh" gourmand , it is a delicious way to the concept of perfume for afternoon: something sweet, something fresh, something energetic, with a very calming and inspiring result; in general is a very versatile and elegant gourmand.
    Unfortunately I miss more longevity and projection on my skin.

    Liked the top notes but did not like the dry down.

    Great stuff, really, one of my top-ten-to-be-considered frags. Longevity alright, sillage rather low.

    One of the stronger Lutens actually. I don't have a problem with sillage nor longevity. Good stuff.

    I tried it several times and could barely smell it, i decided one more time on the wrist and it is stronger than i thought so i pulled the plug and ordered a bottle . Thanks for your input.

    I've sampled it a couple of times, and found it worked better in warmer weather rather than colder, so that might affect other people's experiences of it too.

    The first few minutes of this are fantastic. The drydown fell apart the same way I remember Rousse doing after the cinnamon burst.

    It´s very versatile IMO.
    I see it one of the most wearable Lutens, with its touch of "fresh" gourmand.
    IMHO The perfume beautifully recreates the atmosphere of the tea at 5 and that is great!!!

    Really liked this one. I thought the longevity and projection were average to good. Enjoy your new acquisition!

    Nice, but not special in the way many others from this house are. I doubt I'll ever buy a bottle, but I'd happily spray it on if it were sitting in front of me.
