    Default Frapin 1270 top notes remind me of...

    ...opening a bag of Haribo jellies & taking a deep sniff.

    I've just recieved a sample of this, and this image is what I got straight away. Lovely opening, if somewhat funny. I like it.

    What kind of longevity is everyone getting from this? I tried a sample and seemed like the top notes are like Dolce and Gabbana The One at first.

    Longevity is good, 6-8 hours... I was a quite bit disappointed when I first tried it and thought it smelled very much like D&G The One (I blind bought 1270). It has a similar opening, but after a few wears and you get to know it better, you realise that its similarity is quite vague! It totally blows D&G The (weak) One out of the water in terms of quality and scent. The warm, boozy, fruitiness is amazing! As far as longevity goes, it's hardly fair using D&G The (premature) One as a comparison!! I've known farts last longer!!
    LOST! in scent and music

    Ya I hear ya on its longevity. The opening is the only similarity.

    I think it has a very nice opening, but becomes rather ordinary on the drydown, and it seems to fade rather quickly on me. I like it because it is a very "safe" and versatile, but doesn't quite wow me after 30 minutes or so.

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver

    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
