Overpriced shower gel water
So far I assumed that only drugstore or mainstream brands would produce such olfactory trivia, but apparently they don't have a monopoly on it. What I'm talking about are these really dull, synthetic cheap fragrances that resemble shower gel.

In principle no crime, if the price is right or the shower gel costs one Euro. Then you can squeeze one or two eyes or nostrils, that's absolutely ok. As a mainstream brand with high standards, this is bold enough - but apparently there are enough buyers who don't give a damn and are happy to have their money taken out of their pockets. The main thing is that the bottle has a well-known name on it and if it costs something, it must be worth something. And it sniffs so nice for cleanliness. So far, so annoying.

But with a brand like Brecourt, which I see more in the niche segment, I think that's close to fraud. The customer's expectations should be much higher and you should expect fine fragrances with quality. Unfortunately, as described above, Eau Libre smells like an aquatic muddle of slightly tart synthetic materials, a bit spicy and minimally cedar, but totally arbitrary and interchangeable.

As already described: for one Euro as shower gel ok, for 79 € at 50 ml almost a declaration of war to the consumer.

Not bad... clear fresh water with mint!
I do like this one. It's sporty and fresh, not too serious. Like someone who smells "clean". I actually really like the mint note here. Mint, clean white musk, a little geranium & juniper berry, to keep it "fresh", with a little spicy pepper in the background. It's not bad, and I think it would be good for hot weather, and occasions when you want to smell "clean".

This is the second fragrance I've tried from Brécourt, and it is still not impressing me so much. If this cost lower than the price of a full bottle, I would buy it. But to be honest, for this fresh, summer vibe, I would stick with an old friend of mine: Live Jazz by Yves Saint-Laurent.

Aromatic Aquatic Men's Cologne
The good news is that Brecourt EAU LIBRE is a perfectly respectable, mid-range quality aromatic-aquatic cologne. The bad news is that Brecourt EAU LIBRE is a perfectly respectable, mid-range quality aromatic-aquatic cologne. While wearing this creation, I have been reminded of such fragrances as Bond no 9 I LOVE NEW YORK FOR HIM and Bennetton BLV. Basically this is a standard made-for-men's fragrance with a bit more of an aromatic than aquatic demeanor, but it projects as much as most any men's aquatic cologne.

For what this is, it is pretty good. But it is what it is, and it's not what it's not. This could easily be a mainstream designer launch--and perhaps it is, under some alias. I am beginning to see that Brecourt has created a series of affordable fragrances in attractive black bottles which map out compositionally over already well-charted territory. They do use fairly good ingredients (not great), with the consequence that even someone like me who generally eschews aquatic frags can manage to wear EAU LIBRE comfortably, should I so desire.

I'm not personally on the hunt for an aromatic-aquatic men's cologne, but this one will certainly do for the usual suspects. It would probably make a fine gift for some guy who's not totally obsessed with perfume. (-;

yes i like
The opening is a lot like many fresh yet woodsy scents created for men. The bergemont, geranium, and rosemary play beautifully while the suprisingly tame jasmin stands to the side. Jasmin usually takes center stage but this jasmin sits on the sidelines like that friend you didnt want to invite to your wedding because she is usually obnoxious, but she is so well behaved it shocks me! Low sillage and lasts 5-7hrs.
It is a circular fragrance that keeps going around in circles. Well blended but will not be added to my collection for personal prefrence reasons only and nothing to do with the quality.

Well blended!
