Advantages: Very nice smell
I have wanted to get this fragrance for a while, but after finally getting a chance to sample this recently, I wanted to get this even more and then finally purchased this a few weeks ago, so feel I am in the position to give this
The main notes here are Raspberry and Heliotrope (yes I don't know what the second one is either), whilst other notes include Dry Wood and Grapefruit amongst a couple of others that aren't worth mentioning. So yes it is quite a fruity fragrance, but still pretty masculine as it has a great blend with the dry wood.
The bottle itself is pretty simple, but with an added touch, although the reason for this touch I am not sure. There is a brown cover, that u can zip up. I just don't understand the reasoning behind this. It may be for protection, and I can see its benefit when clogged up with other times but overall I just think it is not needed.
The price is pretty reasonable, I wouldn't say as budget as Carolina Herrera fragrances, but in the next bracket with the Davidoff's and a little cheaper than the Hugo Boss fragrances. A 50ml bottle will set you back around £25 from Boots, whilst you are looking at around £34 for a 75ml bottle. As I always say do your research online before popping to your next retailer, as there are always offers about.
In terms of longevity I would only give this a few hours, I always find this hard to judge, as I find that after a few seconds my nose becomes accustomed to the smell and I can no longer smell it, so how do I judge how long it lasts? Well I use other people's noses for that, and ask them if they can still smell it. Simple really. A few hours is expected, and don't be expecting an all-day last like Le Male or a Burberry London scent. I would give this four sprays as each spray isn't that giving so three at a minimum up to a maximum of five sprays.
I think this is a fragrance you can have in your day wear, as long as you don't wear it all the time. In my opinion you should have a collection of at least three day fragrances that you mix up. You don't want to become associated to one fragrance after all, so this is always a good idea.
Overall I would put this up there and think once it runs out I will definitely be repurchasing a bottle for my collection. I do have quite a few flowery scents but none quite as fresh smelling as this one, and it's always good to have a varied and diverse collection, so I do recommend this to people looking to add a quality fragrance to your collection that won't bust your bank account.
