Pleasant fragrance, but does not last long
Despite the bad reputation of A&F as a brand, the fragrance is considered to be unusually successful... this and the unusual pyramid of fragrances have animated me to make a blind buy.
The flacon is pretty and handy and therefore the price is reasonable.
To the fragrance:
Directly while spraying, my nose is first confused by a myriad of different, mainly synthetic notes - as soon as the confusion subsides after a few seconds, I can actually make out some gin and some "exotic melon", accompanied by light pepper (I don't like too strong pepper notes, but here it is very well dosed and placed) and some citrus-fruit-flower mixture (I wouldn't have guessed, but the floral one will probably be the violet).
The whole thing then sits comfortably warm on the skin... in fact, suede and ambergris can also be smelled!
The fragrance is now, of course, neither particularly elegant nor particularly striking. It simply lacks a bit of character, but as an everyday scent for the hoodie it definitely fits. And not necessarily just for younger people... you won't be angry with the fragrance, whether you get compliments will still be seen.
The projection and sillage, which were initially quite good, unfortunately evaporate quite quickly, so that 2-3 hours remain for a still very beautiful, but unfortunately only body-hugging scent.
Anyway, I like the scent DNA well and the price is okay: First Instict may stay in the collection.
