Reviews of Afternoon Swim

Closing the eyes and taking in the wafts of air that flow in like ripples from a clear tropical river you smell clean,fresh,invigorating water.nearby,you can hear the showering sounds of a waterfall that radiate the aroma of the cascade.
Light hot summer fragrance,fresh, clean and indeed cute.it's for a confident man of his power but down up to earth at the same time.such a juicy and refreshing smell.

Opening is a sparkling citrus,very energizing and uplifting later it gets woodier but still fresh.hint of the amber dry down that's very faint almost like a whisper,but it's there. it's backed by white musk and what smells to me like more ISO E super that brings to mind an ice cold glass of freshly squeezed citrus juices with ice cubes clinking around and drops of condensation running down the side.

Definitely a spring and summer fragrance for casual daytime adventures.even wear this to a business meeting as it's inoffensive,a light speay and it leaves a nice fresh smell about you.a true compliment getter.Girls really dig scent.
Overall,not a bad fragrance at all.is it unique?no,not per se,but the execution is really good.Longevity is actually nice for a fresh citrus six hours easy.

Sweet n sour citrusy grapefruit and mandarine, salty and a little musky. First thought was Creed's Millesime Imperial but not in a clone way. More like LV's take on a sparkling, salty, hot day fragrance. Funny that it is a blue color juice since it reminds me more of the sandy beach than the water.

To me, this has better performance than MI with 8-9 hours longevity and good projection during the first 4-6 hours.

A very pleasant and enjoyable take on a modern citrus fragrance, Afternoon Swim opens with vibrant fruity notes, both sweet and tart, resembling orange, bergamot, and perhaps grapefruit. What separates AS from an average, mundane citrus is mostly twofold: First, the notes themselves have a very colorful, juicy, lively feeling and come across as something of a bouquet rather than just one singular note or accord. Secondly, they're infused with a subtle, salty-aquatic quality that recalls ambergris and the marine-like dimension of Creed's Millesime Imperial. It's a quality that's present but subtle--lending a seaside breeze to the citrus and really establishing a connection to the fragrance's name. The citrus blend itself is both sweet and tart. In fact, one negative review of Afternoon Swim succinctly summed things ups by stating, "Smells like Sweet Tarts candy. That's all." While I disagree with the general sentiment of the comment, the comparison to Sweet Tarts is pretty accurate--one facet of Swim's citrus notes do in fact resemble the popular candy. But there's more to it than that, of course.

Regarding its performance, Afternoon Swim is appropriately sneaky. It goes on with a fresh rush, nice and bright and awakening. Then, in about 20 minutes it settles in and becomes pretty quiet at first. But it doesn't end there: Over the course of the next 4 to 6 hours, Afternoon Swim appears, disappears and reappears in pleasant, vivid wafts as you wear it. It doesn't persist with one, linear pulse, but rather it fades in and out in a breezy, relaxed manner that seems to suit the fragrance well. If you're looking for a powerhouse citrus, look elsewhere, but if you can appreciate a fragrance that weaves in and out over the course of its average to slightly above average longevity, this is a good choice.

Overall AS feels very modern and fresh--it's well-suited for the summer and spring--and though I can't imagine using it much in the colder months, I think it could work well in an indoor office environment as a generally casual, pleasing smell that is never too intrusive. The fragrance's presentation is a treat--from bottle to box everything is a high- quality pleasure to behold. A bit more complex and clever than it first appears, Louis Vuitton's Afternoon Swim brings a bright citrus fragrance to the market with enough nuance to make it stand out from the crowd. Final rating 8.5/10

A bracing, fresh, wonderful rendition of three versions of orange that lasts and lasts.

Simply beautiful.
