    Default DSquared2 Potion

    Has anyone tried this?

    I quite liked this when I briefly tried it.

    I get the sense that it is not in wide distribution. Not here in the US yet.

    But yes : Anick Menardo's newest work, so people have reason to be curious.

    I only tried it on paper and while I found it quite likeable at the same time it strongly resembled of something else I can't put my finger on. Need to revisit it...

    I absolutely love this. At times it smells like a spicier Musc Ravageur. Considering my skin usually can't project for sh*t, I could actually detect this on my wrist 25 hours after applying!

    Also it's thankfully nothing like the awful He Wood and it's flankers.

    Very nice scent, but it has abysmal sillage and longevity. For an edt it would be a disappointment, but for an edp, it's a disgrace.

    Alfarom, maybe Tonka Imperialle?

    Riverwide, how many sprays?

    I'm a notorios over-sprayer, but even when I use up to 10 sprays of Potion, it makes little difference to its longevity. It's pretty much gone in under 2 hours. I have to stick my nose right up to my skin to barely detect it, and even worse, it doesn't last on clothing either, which is unusual for an edp.

    As I say, I do like the scent itself, but it's a complete waste of money in my opinion.

    I quite enjoyed He and Rocky Mountain Wood this summer. Nice little woodies for a warm summer's day (I can see though why people would call them bland) and will try and sample Silver and Wet Wood plus this one in the future. I also enjoy the Ikea style bottles, I'm not ashamed to say.

    Edit - "gone in under 2 hours". Well, maybe this one goes off the to try list.

    I got a sample, I have used up the whole sample. I really like it and it works well on my skin with good longevity. I like the dry down a lot

    For testing, I found the best approach to be :
    Spray it like you own it.

    People lurking this thread: please test for yourself and don't dismiss on longevity claims. As I said, I got TWENTY FIVE hours from one spray to the back of my hand/wrist. I was very wary as when I read longevity complaints, I know that I'll suffer just as bad - if not worse - than others in that regard, so I went into this test expecting the worst and was completely surprised.

    I have a sample of this and I have found it to be a spicy,deep and strong fragrance. My skin eats up alot of fragrances but I have found the longevity with this great,I can still detect it, although faintly on my skin the next morning. I will definitely buy a full sized bottle of this.

    Tried it and bought it right away. Menardo just keeps coming up with great standout scents! Not yet sure about longevity though, it seems kind of weak...

    I just got a bottle of this today as a gift from my mum (she'd been overseas) and I have to say I quite like it.
    It's got a bit of a churchy vibe about it, which appeals to me, but the projection is minimal if virtually non-existent. It lasts for a couple of hours (maybe 3 hours) on my skin though - for a skin scent it's nice.
    PS On the box it says Eau De Toilette - I thought it was supposed to be a parfum?
