Pleasant freshness without "extremes" ... I prefer to stay with the original!
Shortly after its release, I received "Bulgari pour Homme" in the normal version as a gift from my girlfriend at the time. It was my first encounter with the brand at all. To this day, I practically always have a bottle of this fragrance in my closet, because it has a unique fresh aura in my nose. At the time, I didn't think about the individual ingredients, but I think tea, flowers and (especially) musk, along with citrus notes, work together to give the original its distinctive character, which I find extremely pleasing. Unfortunately, "Bulgari pour Homme" suffers from a rather weak durability and sillage.

Clearly that one leads sometime also the "extreme" brother to mind, in the hope that this shortcoming would be eliminated. But this is only conditionally so. Extreme is here first of all nothing. The Flanker was simply trimmed to a longer shelf life, which is quite noticeable. But the incomparable freshness of the original is lost a bit. Far higher citrus, wood and spice shares make BPHE a much more ordinary fresh scent, although I would have expected otherwise.

Thus, the original in the top and base notes is lost to my regret, although one can certainly still speak of a flanker, which also deserves this name due to the similar DNA. However, the difference between the two Bulgari "men" makes itself much more noticeable on my skin than on the test strip, on which both fragrances differed for me rather marginally.

No question that with BPHE we are still dealing with a very nice and clean fresh scent (you do not need the umpteenth "Acva" version), but which lacks the uniqueness of the original. Wood and spices make for a slightly longer lasting scent, while the sillage remains more or less skin deep. If you have the one, you need in any case not also the other

Citrusy elegance by master perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud
This perfume (together with the regular pour Homme) is one of the most sold in Japan. And I understand why.
For me, together with CK One and Grey Vetiver, this is one of the cleanest, non-intrusive yet unique scents ever made.
The grapefruit here is amazing. As all the other citrus notes for that matter. Combine that with a gorgeous tea accord and musk in the base and you get an amazing clean/slightly soapy sensation.

I think this will be discontinued soon, it's getting harder and harder to find...

A Giant Grapefruit...
I am really indifferent to this one. The grapefruit note overpowers everything else on my skin. I like grapefruit, but am not a fan of it as a dominant note... Longevity is pretty good, and sillage is average. Pretty much an average scent that is not bad, but so forgettable like many others. Not recommended, unless you find it super-inexpensive, and love smelling like a giant grapefruit. 2.5 to 3 stars out of 5.

Interesting tea and grapefruit scent that goes from a sharp metallic opening to a woody herbal drydown. Do not overspray.

Fresh, clean, light but still a powerful and long lasting citrus scent with woody notes, perfect for hotter weather. A cheap hidden gem.
