Reviews of Eau Dynamisante

Fresh, bright citrus. Juicy. Hint of warm spice. The top is mostly a bunch of sunshine, in a bottle... This scent becomes a mix of light florals and herbs. It has a slight medicinal accord, at times.

Light patchouli, later on. Overall, a fairly light fragrance. Summery and never heavy.

More patchouli, hours later. A good day scent.

Here we are in front of a concept of perfumery. Perhaps many people do not understand what I mean to say, but surely if the reader had the ability to use his nose as his ears he would understand this mystery.

There is a perfume, Eau Dynamisante (1987), whose Nose has created without any market scheme, and this one is a great work of Jacques Courtin.

Currently I can consider this scent more creative than 90% of Niche fragrances.

This fragrance introduces a new concept of unisex elegance! Magnificent, considering when it was launched, a link between past and future.
If this perfume were music it would play as the Elegy of Rachmaninov!

Using the same elegance accord after 7 years we have another masterpiece, L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme (1994) whose Nose, Jacques Cavallier, created with Japanese citron and mandarin playing with geranium and vetiver.

There are three ingredients really interesting, the ones which give originality to this perfume: cinnamon, verbena and sandalwood!

The character of this fragrance is certainly less pompous than the Clarins one, abandoning all connections with the past giving up the power of flowers.

If this fragrance were music would be a topic of Turandot by Giacomo Puccini shooting from Elegy of Rachmaninov.

Now we have a perfume by Hermes, ten years later! In this one we have only elegance without originality,Terre d'Hermès (2006). Here Jean-Claude Ellena used grapefruit and orange playing with geranium and vetiver.

There are three ingredients really interesting which trivialize this perfume: pepper, patchouli and benzoin.

If this perfume were music? It would be a child who is learning to play!

This starts off with a bright, fresh, lemon, supported by a dry petit grain.

It then dries down to a pleasant, though unremarkable, herbal and dry spice mix.

Top notes: Orange, Coriander, Caraway, Lemon, Petit Grain
Heart notes: Rosemary, Carnation, Cardamom, Thyme
Base note: Patchouli

A refreshing summer splash, but nothing at all remarkable in the world of scents.

This is the perfect skin scent for me. Clean and very comfortable. I wear it all year round and layer it with other fragrances. It does seem to have a "pick me up" effect on me.

Being a fan of patchouli (within reason), the drydown is perfect.

*EDIT: 5/24/16 (give or take a few months). They have changed the formula. I ran out of an old bottle and went to the store (Dillards) to pick up more. I am glad I tried it first. They have added some sort of musk to it. I don't like the smell of most artificial musks, they smell almost metallic to me. The change has completely brought down the lightness and airiness of the scent, added an unpleasant note, made it vaguely masculine and smell a bit cheap.

It's been a basic in my fragrance wardrobe for over 20 years. Sadly, I don't think it will be going forward unless I can find an original formulation on ebay.

Unpleasantly sweet and spicy

If you like a very sweet, gourmand, coriander-like spice biscuit, then this is for you. I find it intensely sweet and unpleasant.

I keep a bottle of this at work in my desk. My office is often the scene of student visits and peer conferences. I find that a gentle spritz up into the air once or twice a day freshens my spirits, and the air!

I also wear it on my skin, but more like a pick me up than a true fragrance. I think it loves my Shalimar and #5. When I am wearing these, and hit my arms with a light spritz of Eau Dynamisante, they seem to wake up and sparkle a bit.
