    Default Ted lapidus Altamir

    this is one of those perfumes that I never had the courage to buy but for spring I would like to have. I think it can be powerful, mysterious, romantic but not too much. a perfume to have for the nights until dawn. what do you think? then I love neroli and orange blossom and if I think they can be sweetened ... wow ...

    I think this would be fine at any time of the day or year

    Own and enjoy. Just go easy on the sprayer in warmer weather though.

    Might even consider getting this blind given its curent inexpensive pricing, admittedly having not tested it yet already trusting the opinions of BN and beyond about this

    Go with Altamir. You'll enjoy it.

    My girlfriend hated it and made me wash it off. Too sweet, old ladies' scent, etc. She wasn't wrong.

    A better option is the orange blossom Gaultier one, La Cologne Fleur du Male, as it's fresher, or even Fleur du Male, though I didn't keep that one either. Altamir is just oppressively sweet.
