Peanut-y, sugary, floral gourmand. Sweet and dry at the same time. Not really powdery in any traditional way, thoroughly unique. It is also the most snuggly fragrance I know.
Amazing. Lapsang plus leather, but weightless. Elegant, wearable, unique. A note about the rubber: if you've smelled Lapsang before, you'll recognise the rubber as typical of this tea. No tires for me. Not just full bottle worthy, back-up bottle worthy.
Dual indeed. Some days it's a vanilla martini, all fresh juniper and vanilla, drying down to a cool, rounded, dry vanilla pudding. Other days it's a plush bookstore, sophisticated, new, rich. Some days it lasts forever, on others it's gone too fast. Always unique and never cloying, the only vanilla I can wear. Will buy again.
Sharp, cheap coconut. No redeeming qualities.
Pleasant enough floral with no discernible vetyver in it, unless its presence is so light that's what my nose perceives as a white tea note. It would be great in summer, and I don't mean this in a bad way. Very little sillage.
This is an exact rendering of port wine, which is sweet and lovely-smelling, so if you enjoy that smell you'll like London for Men. The top notes fade immediately and the middle is a beautiful and very unisex port. I get no leather from this. There is, however, a strong note of cliched men's perfume in the drydown, which spoils it for me. Too bad, the middle is truly goregoeus.
Brine! At first, like a freshly opened tin of roe caviar. Uncanny salty sea smell but really, why would anyone want to smell like this?! Dry down is very generic, with maybe a little citrus. I gave it two lippies for the realistic sea smell, but I would never wear this.
It's been said before: the opening is just like Dzongkha, but they split ways in the dry down. Citta di Kyoto becomes fruity and loses the incense, which is why no 5 lippies. It's lovely, but I'm just not into fruit.
Lavander pure and simple. It's a lovely lavander, of course, and not sweet at all, but... that's it. There's nothing to criticize. Spend your hard earned money on another, more interesting Lutens, and get your lavander fix from the many other options out there. You'll find something just as nice at at least half the price, promise. EDIT What is it with this scent? It has pulled me in and now I got a full bottle. It's actually quite unique, although a bit more smoke would have been very welcome. I do think you should only buy it if you're a lavander fanatic like me; for an occasional lavander fix there are cheaper options that will fit the bill.
This is very bland and generic. Smells like Hanae Mori, only more berry. So boring.
Like another reviewer said: a bellini in a bottle. Very fruity, not too sweet, pretty girly, good for work, and, surprisingly, better staying power than other AGs. Not my type, really, but it's very good if you're into fruity scents.
I liked this for one day. From then on, wearing this has made me feel as if I were sitting on a mound of powdered sugar, eating it by the spoonful, without a glass of water in sight to relieve the throat-parching, teeth-grinding sweetness. Will stick to Etro Heliothrope for my almond fix.
What a dissapointment! This does smell exactly like Bounce. Don't bother.
This can beat warm temperatures and a humidity of 95%. It is fleeting and quite linear. After the initial burst of freshness it becomes very boring. So it's good on occasion, and worth having for scorching days, but that's about it.
