Sure. Why not?
Do you think this would be a good winter scent? I am open to Suggestions if you recommend something different I could go try out when I go to try this.
secondly, try Rochas Man by Rochas - In its opening, a pleasing lavender and bergamot arouse the senses. From afar, a sweet and creamy vanilla bobs eagerly. Thankfully, the lavender remains throughout the composition to rein in the sweetness. The tantalizing vanilla does intrude on that grassy lavender, and brings its sugary sweetness to the fore, steering it to its heart. The middle beckons, stewing with its coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, cedar, and rasberry notes, as well as some, lovely jasmine and lily-of-the-valley accords. The sweet vanilla blends nicely with the heart, creating a delicious mocha cafe, with hints of wood and floral twinkling. The smooth base with its amber, sandalwood, and glimpses of patchouli, usurps the melange, softening it, and evolves into its enticing drydown. It's a well-constructed gourmand. This delightful fragrance's longevity is good; and its projection is average for the first 3 hours, then sticks to the skin.
I bought Play Intense last week and love it. Good for an everyday/casual winter scent, IMO.
Went and smelt this today and wow it is nicer than I expected. purchased a 100 ml bottle of this juice amazing, can see this being a chilly-rainy day scent not for very freezing tempratures thats for my A*men to cut through. Rochas man- I dont think there is anywhere to try this out but somewhere I read that it is like this scent.
Love Play Intense in the winter. This one makes my g/f absolutely weak in the knees, and is a real compliment getter. I love the labdanum note in the dry down. An excellent scent!
BTW, Sculpture, what are your thoughts on Endymion?
It's another bottle I've been considering lately. I thought it had a nice coffee note in it, and came off classy. My only concern is that maybe it's too quiet.
P.S. I'm still testing your samples, I'll send my impressions your way sometime soon!
Yes! Givenchy Play Intense is defienitly perfect for winter. It's scent just fits perfectly for that season.
What I particularly like about Play Intense is the halo-like projection it creates. It is more of a diffuse aura than a focused olfactory-laser like so many scent out there.
Hey Sculpture, I just went out last night and bought it. Gave it one quick spray in the store and I knew it was just what I was looking for. It's really good stuff and I'm totally happy with the purchase.
I also picked up a 1.7 of AMen while I was at it, for those days when I'm feeling particularly obnoxious
Our local Perfumania has a 50% discount on 100mL Play Intense, and the saleslady asked me if I was interested. I was actually shopping for Xeryus Rouge, but then I asked to test both anyway.
The opening of Play Intense reminds me of Rochas Man, it smells sweet, and I feel it is stronger. I am sitting here right now 3 hours after I first sprayed it on paper, and I'm really liking it.
Is it a good buy than Xeryus Rouge which cost $45, 1.7oz on Amazon? I can't afford to buy both because I'm also planning to get the Egoiste as well.
I got a sample of this today and love it. I will be buying a bottle for sure.
