Reviews of Eau des Sens

The eau de cologne genre is a hard one in which to innovate, and if Eau de Sens manages anything, it is to give the classic soapy-herbal eau de cologne a sleek, modern aura.

That said, I can't say I find Eau de Sens particularly thrilling or memorable; it smells like a high-end bar of hotel soap, which means it's by no means unpleasant, but doesn't offer a strong signature accord, either.

Measured against stuff like the Acqua di Parma Colonia line (which is by no means consistent in quality, but offers a spectrum of contemporary reinterpretations of the classic eau de cologne structure), it seems overly simplistic and flat.

This sounds smug but I don't remember even purchasing this but there it was boxed up in one of my drawers.

It reminds me of an old style fougere fashioned around orange blossom.

It has a fresh and crisp barbershop pulse to it and lasts a whole day.

Not the most complex of fragrances but a mighty fine wear and I will be wearing this a lot.

Orange Blossom sets the chalky tone for a light aromatic planted above a sneaky WAC Floral, Laundry Musk. Bitter Orange puts a touch of, well, bitter Bergamot, to mildly contrast. Nah.

A traditional orange flower cologne formula treated with wood and juniper to - presumably - make it feel modern. It doesn't. The result is heavy and - despite plenty of indole - unstructured, and there's a chemical feel hanging around as well.

An orange impression combines with orange blossom defines to opening blast. Unlike in a classical Eau de Cologne there is no bergamot used here, and there is only minimal neroli used in Eau de Sens.

In the drydown juniper is at the core, a pleasant juniper with a boozy touch. The base adds a very soft patchouli, never sharp or tangy, woodsy notes, with slightly boozy with touches and herbal undertones. The latter stage has a bright, light and agreeable soapiness attached to it.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and eight hours of longevity on my skin.

On me this scent - good for warmer spring as well as cooler summer days - is never a fully refreshing cologne for hot days; it is more of a refined, elegant and discreetly hesperidic composition. Whilst it is not ultra creative, it is well-blended and displays variegated stages of development that can sufficiently enthuse. 3.25/5.

A good and fresh masculine fragrance. Much like a cologne, with a better sillage and longevity.
