    Default NEW : Davidoff Horizon Extreme

    from fragrantica

    http://www.fragrantica.com/news/Davi...reme-8745.html


    "Davidoff presented their new masculine fragrance Horizon in February 2016 as a perfume that symbolizes the bond between earth and air, representing freedom, adventure and exploration. A year later, its new version comes out as Davidoff Horizon Extreme.

    Horizon Extreme is an oriental - woody composition that comes in an EDP concentration. The composition is "full of contrasts": its fresh top notes of grapefruit, ginger and rosemary cross into the warm heart of cedar, cypriol, leather and nutmeg. Accords of amber and creamy sandalwood are to be discovered at the base.

    Top notes: grapefruit, ginger, rosemary
    Heart: cedar, cypriol, nutmeg, leather
    Base: sandalwood, amber

    The fragrance is available as a 40, 75 and 125 ml Eau de Parfum."

    Hmmmmm this one is puzzling me. Less than a year and another flanker comes out. I wonder if this is marketing or to improve longevity and silage .

    Davidoff is, in general, quite an interesting off the radar house, especially when it comes to their other frags besides Cool Water and Zino.
    Adventure wasn't bad, Silver Shadow Private was quite an interesting one. Game and Game Intense are fairly good modern, sweet-spicy-woody frags, however again off the radar. Plenty of not betters get far more attention.

    Yeah, so do I - it may not be the most exciting or challenging of fragrances but I find it extremely satisfying to wear and reach for it often. Will definitely sample the Extreme when it appears.

    I haven't liked much of anything from Davidoff since Cool Water and Zino (but I absolutely loved Cool Water and Zino, back in the day)

    That said....I tried Horizon recently and it's actually pretty good! Nothing mind blowing or cutting edge, but just a good scent with decent performance. I'll likely give the Extreme version a shot once it comes out. Speaking of which...does anybody know WHEN it is due to be released?

    It's supposed to come out in February 2017, one year after Horizon was released, so I read.

    After loving Cool Water as a kid, I will always have a soft spot for Davidoff - even after trying multiple fragrances and not being impressed.

    Thanks, hednic.

    I tried the original Horizon again today. I really do like it, but I think maybe I can understand why they are coming out with an 'extreme' version. It doesn't seem to project for very long, although it does hang around as a bit of a skin scent for quite some time.

    I think this is a perfect year-round business fragrance, especially in an indoor environment. I don't think that anyone would find this one 'offensive'. It's a pleasant, masculine, clean and subtle type scent. It reminds me a bit of Tom Ford for Men. I see others say Terre D'Hermes, and there is the orange and vetiver thing going that I could see conjuring up thoughts of Terre...but to me, I get a little more of a TFFM vibe and scent from it. I don't see it as one that anyone would wear to seek out or to get attention, but I could see the guy that simply wants to smell nice but who isn't big into fragrances or is a little worried about smelling like "cologne guy", and probably only cares to be smelled when he's being hugged or immediately right next to someone liking and wearing this one without fear.

    Horizon is nice but too faint , its safe to say Horizon was a commercial flop, this extreme version is aimed at improving the fragrance and making it more saleable.

    Tried the original Horizon again today. I agree with Vinrambo09....it is very subtle....but it is nice. Anyway, I guess the third time's the charm.,,,because I think I've about decided that I'm going to get a bottle. You can find a 4.2 ounce bottle for under or around $40, and to me, it's a pretty versatile scent that would be good for those times where you want a nice scent, but aren't seeking or wanting any attention. I could see this one being worn while dressed up OR down, and I actually think it makes a great "throw away" scent for times and those lazy days when you don't want to waste expensive juice, because you're dressed casually and only planning to run a few errands or go somewhere for an hour or so.

    Lol, I never even knew about the existence of Horizon by Davidoff. I thought this is a non-flanker release.

    I too love the original and whilst the projection is fairly discreet I find the longevity excellent - I can still smell it clearly after 8+hrs with 4-5 sprays.

    Same with me. Easily lasts a full day with 4-6 sprays, albeit quite close to the skin.

    It's not on their website, only the regular Horizon is. Did you see it in a Kohl's by you?

    At one point, I think talk went to the original. That is what I saw at Kohl's, not the extreme version.

    Yep. Since this "new" version isn't out yet, we were discussing the original...and he quoted my post to say that for those interested, it (meaning the original) was at Kohl's (which, ironically, is where I had tried it before I ended up buying it).

    I'll still be interested in trying the "Intense" once it is released...because as much as I like the original, it could use a little bit of a boost in the performance department.

    It's been a few months since the new Extreme version was discussed, and it was SUPPOSED to be released in February, to mark the one year anniversary of the original's release....but I haven't seen or heard ANYTHING about it!

    Has anyone seen or smelled the new Extreme version? I can't seem to find anything about it online, let alone in any department store.
