    Hednic have you sampled or bought these yet? I know you really liked a lot of the LV offerings. Many of the original releases were interesting to me but I haven't explored much deeper.

    Just contacted my LV SA about these to see if they’re available at the local boutique & was informed Cactus Garden & Sun Song have already sold out on the first day.
    Hopefully that means they’re very good.

    Looks like they’re splash colognes?

    I love the bottles & the art on the box. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the LV line, looking forward to trying these.

    Haven’t purchased any from LV yet. These might change my mind. I love well-executed citrus. Definitely will sample the next time I visit an LV boutique.

    Yes, I bought all three tonight from the boutique, but I haven't opened them yet as I'm still working through other scents that arrived earlier this week. I should get to them tomorrow or Saturday. I'll share my first thoughts soon.

    As I said elsewhere, I tried on both Sun Song and Cactus Garden (I sampled all three on cards, as well). Cactus Garden was the one the I thought was more interesting--very interesting blend of notes and not as lemongrass-y as I was expecting--but I'm not sure I like it enough to buy a full bottle. I'll probably grab samples this weekend, as I had to try them out at a boutique that didn't have samples since the boutique I regularly visit was closed.

    I do remember that I was not initially impressed by the men's line the first time I tried them, though, but now Nouveau Monde is my most worn over the past year, so I may need to spend more time with these.

    Those prices... presentation is half-arsed and I'm willing to guess the juice isn't that special.

    Thanks LVMH!

    LV and overpriced go hand in hand! (I am a fan of the frags though)

    I was very disappointed and underwhelmed by them at first when they originally released. I did take home a sample of Nouveau Monde, though, and it quickly grew on me. Within a week, I purchased a full bottle. I also have a full bottle of Ombre Nomade, but that one I liked immediately.

    I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who was initially unimpressed by them, too. I've read about others who came to really like them after spending more time with them.

    Whatever, though. I'd prefer that fewer people wear them anyway.

    Have finally opened the boxes and tried all three on my skin (two on the back of hands and one on inside arm. My initial thoughts: Cactus Garden for me is all about the tea. The lemon grass comes through loud and clear and stays a good while but as it very slowly disappears, the tea emerges once more and lingers. refreshing, aromatic, lemony, tart. Afternoon Swim reminds me of walking among the orange trees ripe with fruit on my land in Brazil. So fragrant with its sweet orange. It's juicy, bright, extremely refreshing. Pure citrus delight. I can see people enjoying this on a hot summer day. Sun Song doesn't shy away from citrus either, but for me was more floral and the citrus turns a bit soapy to my nose, but not in an unpleasant way. I think they're all quite good and would work especially well in warmer weather, but personally would have no problem wearing them at any time of the year. My fave of the three - Afternoon Swim, but like them all.
    I'll need to see how long they last on my skin, but now I feel like I am in the tropics.

    Very nice, thanks for sharing your impressions. Looking forward to trying these next time I brave the mall.

    Tried them today.

    I liked cactus garden the most. Very good scent.

    I liked afternoon but didn’t love it. Guess I had too high expectations from the posts here.

    Did not like the son one.

    Got a nice sample of the cactus which I’m wearing tonight and enjoying it quite a bit.

    Wore Cactus Garden and Sun Song today off of samples. I liked Afternoon Swim best in store but they didn’t have a sample. I really like all three of these. Probably going to be problematic for my wallet at some point lol.

    Hmm Cactus Garden sounds like something I can dig into. But the price looks prickly...

    What kind of longevity did you get with these?

    Been browsing the forum for quite some time, but first post. Amazed about the wealth of knowledge and diversity of opinion here.

    I did test all three and ended up with Afternoon Swim. Pricey, but really great smelling. To my nose, more fresh than sweet, and the citrus is not to overpowering for me. Well blended. No complaints about longevity so far, but performance better in warmer temperatures. For me it was bottleworthy. Earth-shaking? No. Just a really well made and good smelling scent.

    Cactus Garden and Afternoon Swim are lovely. Sun Song I found a bit too feminine.

    I think the main range contains some gems to -- L'Immensite is a killer masculine

    Against all my expectations, Louis Vuitton has pleased me with their fragrances and I shall certainly be purchasing more.
