    Default Paul Smith Optimistic for Him?

    Hi,

    Anyone tried this? It is in the shops but nobody has a tester!! It also seems very difficult to find any serious info on the net, so........speak up, if you have any info

    Mic.

    I tried it myself today and I instantly thought of good old YSL Live Jazz......but with a little modern twist....like a few drops of Davidoff Champion blended in. It does not really change and has smelled like that for now 5 hours and does not seem to fade away (pretty strong, I think).

    The bottle is really cheap and could keep me from buying it :-)

    Mic.

    I tried this today. Awful stuff. Like watered down Light Blue For Men. That barely-there, aquatic non-fragrance kind of "smell".

    Astonishingly banal and generic.

    It's all right but he has come out with better ones IMO.

    Just had a sample of this, pretty mundane, nothing to write home about.

    Love their clothes and am pretty optimistic about winning the Facebook competition for it though! Look it up and vote for me, every little helps, pic is called 'beach strolling'.

    IMO, his best are PS Man and Story. I don't even care to sniff this. I have DG Light Blue for casual days and gym. Don't need an inferior product, so I presume.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I am optimistic that it will show up at TJ Maxx/Marshalls later this year.

    It already has the look of a fake designer, bargain bin fragrance.

    Although I think they make fantastic men's wear, you'd never guess by the quality of their fragrances.

    This has also got to be the worst name for a fragrance ever, there's a certain desperation about it. Every time I read this, I think:

    Paul Smith Ever Hopeful for Sales

    I thought London was gorgeous.

    I agree. I have not found any to be worth purchasing.

    Paul Smith Optimistic for Him is a copy of Chanel Platinum Egoiste. Not a sweeter or fruity copy (like A&F Fierce or Montblanc Legend) but virtually a 100 % clone, maybe a bit more citrusy. Fortunately, Optimistic costs appreciably less, so why not?

    Not a fan of this either. Only Paul Smith fragrances I like are London and Story. Even then, they are only OK.

    I am optimistic that one day Paul smith will come out with a genuinely good fragrance.
    I thought London was wearable and Extreme was kind of interesting and versatile but even they had a sort of supermarket vibe about them. Exact opposite of their clothes really.

    Paul Smith Story is the only notable scent In my opinion from this line. But truth be told, story is AMAZING. If he can bring back that old magic...

    I did post a review of this on BN but could hardly be bothered with more than a line. I think his scents are mirroring the decline in his clothes also. Some of the concessions are beginning to look like Primark, but at 20 times the cost.

    That's a bit too optimistic of you if I may say so.

    An extremely pessimistic view.
