    Default NEW: Perry Ellis - Perry Ellis (2018)!




    A brand rooted in tradition with an emphasis on comfort, quality and optimism, Perry Ellis describes its newest men's fragrance as refreshing, refined, and confidently cool.

    Classified as vibrant, fresh fougère, Perry Ellis opens with Italian bergamot, crushed lavender and verbena infused with a blend of iced juniper, geranium, and Mediterranean Rosemary.

    The woody dry down leaves an intriguing signature comprised of amber, oak moss and Indonesian sandalwood.


    Perry Ellis (2018) was launched in late 2017.

    Sounds like a sampler to me.

    What a bland bottle.

    Agree and a sure pass for me on the fragrance.

    This one is the ultimate office / airplane / crowded room scent. It strikes me as very much in the style of Acqua di Giò, Yuzu Man, and other transparent yet persistent and radiant fresh scents.

    Not bad at all, but decidedly "modern generic" in the eyes of niche fans. A slightly different twist on the genre. Blankish but hefty rectangular frosted glass bottle is what it smells like.

    There is a slight "clean cool fresh but touch of warmth laundry musk" resemblance to David Beckham Classic Touch, despite no mentions of musk in the pyramid.

    New white dress shirt first wear vibe. Secretary will think you're marriage material! Pointy-haired boss will think you're trainable but need to be dead-ended like Asok. Wally will know you shopped at Marshalls, but bought the ingratiating scent, not the polarizing one like him. Dilbert will wonder why his fragrance is too loud today. Alice will smile and get you on her next project.

    REAL OFFICE FOR MEN.

    Wouldn't even try it, just for the ugly bottle.

    It’s a good scent in the categories of Fierce and 360 Very Blue.

    Or perhaps, Schrute For Him (though that may have just a wee bit more personality?).

    The three middle notes are all individually discernible yet well-blended into a kind of AdG-like background to the watery citrus totality. The juniper is light but tempting. The geranium adds an interesting "mineral" facet. The rosemary is sharp and clear.

    They call it a fougère, and I can see it as analogous to the "mineral fougères" popular back in the Roadster days.

    LOL!

    This fragrance screams "normal" so well, it has a kind of cult cool to it.

    Im a Dilbert fan. Good stuff.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    I have tried 95% of the men's offerings from PE, and nothing has been a return buy for me, after using the first bottle (if I didn't get rid of it). Except Black Vanilla Absolute, and Portfolio. Very boring mediocre fragrances, with poor performance.

    As I was wearing this one again this morning, a very familiar accord struck me.

    BARBASOL shave cream. And more specifically, it's very much like the rendition of the shaving cream accord in Bleu de Chanel Aftershave Lotion. Not the white opaque balm - the transparent off-clear lotion, also in a rectangular frosted glass bottle!

    Very clear to me now both why I like this, and where some of its inspiration came from.

    The Perry Ellis For Men (2008) offering is a perfect example. I was very borderline on it in Macy's, but got Marshall's eyes on a cheap-as-dirt gift set, and grabbed one. Living with more than a Macy's blotter of the stuff, I quickly realized that the opposition of the fruity sweetness and the aqua is just strange and almost bothersome.

    Now, I wait a looooong time between wears.
