Aaron Terence Hughes goes commercial
Aaron Terence Hughes openly calls his Adonis Collection commercial. While he usually creates more niche scents, he has created some men's fragrances that are supposed to be easy to wear and contain less natural ingredients. Alpha Man is a total flop and more of an Alpha Kevin to me, but I would at least rate neon as solid.

When it comes to fragrances, most people probably think of Aventus and Sauvage first, but I see another fragrance as much more similar and that is Tygar from Bvlgari's Le Gemme series. There are only three notes listed for this one: Grapefruit, ambrox and woods - and these three are exactly what I consider to be the essential elements of neon as well, which is the fragrance. I can't filter out pineapple at all, and the tangy, sour grapefruit seems to me to be the most dominant of the citrus notes. However, neon does not have a particularly refreshing effect - not even in the top note. The reason for this is the for me extremely dry, woody orientation, which is evident from the beginning. Ambroxan is very often associated with typical shower gel fragrances, but in its pure form it has just those dry-woody and slightly amber-warm qualities and these are shown to advantage here and are additionally enhanced. I also think I can perceive a fragrance that often provides this pencil note, but here it only resonates very subtly and reminds me of cedar. In the blind test I would not have guessed sandalwood at all.

Neon doesn't deserve a better rating, because it is too one-dimensional for me. I have nothing against linear scents if they are well done, but this one still lacks something in contrast to the woodiness. The projection should not be underestimated. Even after several hours I can still perceive neon well around me and this should be a nightmare for any Ambroxan opponent. If you like this genre and especially if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Tygar, you might be happy with this.

This is ATH’s take on the runaway success of the “blue fragrance”. It’s more or less Sauvage minus the loud metallic harshness.
