Citrusy chemical bomb with floral moments
falls me somehow difficult to like this fragrance whereby he actually seems so accessible on the smelling. He is fresh, slightly aquatic and smells in the prelude really wonderful after a mixture of various citrus fruits. The perfect summer scent at first. However, its greatest strength quickly becomes its weakness. The pleasant and relatively natural citrus is supplemented after a few minutes by a strange synthetic component whereby the olfactory impression of an aggressive bathroom cleaner arises. The whole thing does not smell really bad, but pleasant is definitely different! After a while, the citrusy note loses its unpleasantly pungent strength and is slowly replaced by a floral note. At this point, I actually like the scent the best, where it becomes wonderfully fresh and simply conveys the feeling of a beautiful summer day. If Tres Nuit Lyric stayed on this track throughout it would definitely be an 8 for me, maybe even better. Unfortunately, an indefinable spiciness creeps in here this time, which just makes the scent boring until it fades away and takes away its complete recognition value. Too bad actually...
The sillage is just in the prelude quite strong, which I found, however, because of the actual fragrance rather negative. In the course, the whole thing is somewhat softer and has a reasonable strength for a summer fragrance of this kind. The durability is more than okay for a price of 17 € per 100 ml. Unfortunately, dominates here most of the time the indefinable base note.
The flacon is in itself really chic to look at. The red, transparent glass looks really elegant in combination with the black leather look. However, I find this in relation to the given fragrance notes rather inappropriate. With a flacon we this I expect rather a spicy-oriental fragrance and not a summery freshness which reminds in places of lemon concentrate. Funny color choice, but well, who am I to judge that.
Overall, I find it a pity what a potential Armaf has gambled away here. Had one set on a two fragrance notes less would have arisen here possibly really a great summer fragrance. So he is not completely horrible, but definitely very far away from what he actually wants to be.
