Eternity DNA - twisted
On my skin, this has the distinct Eternity DNA that runs through the line. It's a leather note scent, enhanced by sweet, sharp pineapple in the top notes, herbal rosemary in the middle and dark, deep labdanum in the base. I was honestly underwhelmed with this, which is a shame since Eternity is one of my favorite designer fragrances.

I'm left at a loss
Somehow, I hadn't really been after that scent at all. It was more of a chance meeting on one of my forays to see if something useful in the mainstream had seen the light of day again. Also it was certainly not an anticipation of a possible flanker of the original. I had discovered the original almost 25 years ago when I was a teenager on holiday in Italy, I liked it then, and my receptors also coped surprisingly well with this scent at that time, but it seemed to have been somehow adulterated in my case over the last few years. I think one colleague describes it with paprika sausage, which is very original, but unfortunately hits the nail on the head. I loved him back then, couldn't get enough of him, but he didn't make it through the last 2 attempts, at the beginning nice, but after 5 minutes the sheer horror, headaches without end. If someone had told me now that the newcomer would undoubtedly follow in the oldie's footsteps, I would have left him on the sidelines. Rather, it was all the more the colour scheme that aroused my interest. I didn't know yet what all the ingredients are in it, but I would never have expected a pineapple, although it is quite sweet. I would have expected amber and orange blossom instead of labdanum and pineapple, although I think both mixtures could be confused with each other. For a short time the thought came up, there is something in the mix that reminds me of a nuance from APOM, but really only far away.
Before the first test, there were actually no concrete expectations at the start, only that due to its colour it is not paler, but rather an intense and spicy fragrance. The original is already very restrained, and can not compete with the flanker in any way.
Although it is very sweet, I can hardly see any pineapple, which is more because the pineapple is held in check by the labdanum, but together they produce this sweetish tone. Unfortunately, I can't recognize rosemary at all, with a lot of good will, at best homeopathically, but only when the first sweet smell has subsided a bit and leaves some room for it to shimmer through. Subjectively, I would not put it in the same corner as, for example, Eros or Reveal, although I have always smelled it only on myself. The other day, when I entered a large supermarket, a guy ran past me with about 2 arm lengths between him, who probably wasn't the target group of this fragrance. Rather the Fahrenheit type, a little older and stylistically rather the unobtrusive one. Despite the fact that I knew that durability and sillage are undervalued in the community, and that the scent already has a decent presence, I knew immediately that the guy was really dieseling here, and I felt at least 8 splashes, if not 10. At the same moment he passed me, I thought I knew the smell, and fractions of seconds later, I recognized him as "my" Flame. I just liked what I smelled Although I knew that my colleague had been a decent helper, I still often wondered whether this was really "my scent" or not. It is clear that he certainly does not like to be undisputed, which is also shown by the fact that he does not have many owners here in the community. So I got to thinking, and I wanted to bring him out here among the people. I knew that there might not be that many interested parties, but even at a knockdown price nobody wanted it so far. But he really isn't that bad, is he? After all, I found it a little controversial at first and, with time, quite passable. My experience has shown that everything that immediately inspires enthusiasm, is long term groats, and a fragrance that is not immediately, but with time pleases, lasts with me. Therefore I come to the end and refer to my title, I am torn back and forth, and for the time being I remain at a loss.

Is it hot in here, or am I?
Stop, stop, stop, stop! Before you roll up all your toenails in my title because of the absolutely kitschy and clichéd saying (buuah, what an idea!!!), I only chose this because of the name of the fragrance, which bears the nickname "Flame". I could just as well have written something with "fire and flame", which wouldn't have been any better :D

Anyway, Eternity Flame for Men is my first men's Eternity test ever and it was just by chance that I sprayed the scent on myself. Because I stood once again in front of the scents and somehow didn't know what to try. So I closed my eyes, stretched out my hand and grabbed some scent. When I think about it, it was somehow a matter of luck that there wasn't exactly a lady present in the department (because the ladies like to romp around in the men's department), who knows what else I would have "grabbed" with my eyes closed... :D

Well, actually I almost wanted to call "bääh, doch nicht Eternity" after reaching for the fragrance, but admittedly I was quite positively surprised by the fragrance, and that despite clear synthetics!

The fragrance:
Right at the beginning the fragrance smells intensely of sweet and spicy notes. But before it really starts with rosemary, general spices and an amber-like sweetness, you first notice the pineapple.
No, no no no no no no no no no no no no no (by the way I type all the "neins" here individually, this is NOT a copy&paste :D) no no no!!!! Just because you see pineapple doesn't make it smell like Aventus. And I won't make a comparison with Aventus just because you can smell pineapple... you Aventus disciples are really incredible freaks!!!!!
Anyway, keep the scent coming! So it smells like pineapple, which smells pleasantly fruity-sweet, but doesn't last too long. Very soon this fruity note fizzes out again, so that herbaceous-spicy and warm-sweet scents emerge, namely the described amber-like scents (probably the Labdanum), which besides their crunchy-spicy charisma also come across warm, as well as the rosemary, which smells quite nice as a kitchen herb, but soon moves into the background again. Much doesn't really change afterwards, because Labdanum (or this beautiful, amber-like sweetness) forms the basis together with general, not further definable spices. Besides, there is the usual mainstream synthetics, which is quite okay and doesn't bother at all, at least not me. All in all a beautiful fragrance that you can have a look at.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage was quite okay and/or good, so that the smell would have to be well smellable for a while with one, without having to get too close. I also liked the durability with more than eight hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular with an arched upper section. The chrome-plated and cylindrical neck on which the angular and capless spray head, which by the way sprays a rather fine mist of scent, sits is attached to the chrome-plated and cylindrical neck. The scent liquid matches the name and the sweet amber scent reddish brown. All in all, it's nice.

Well, I really liked Flame for Men. Maybe it's not a fragrance you need to have now (otherwise you'd really have to have more than 1000 fragrances on your shelf if you had to have everything, wouldn't you?..)? :DDD), but in my opinion you wouldn't make a mistake if you were to treat yourself to the scent (and the shelf actually fills up with 1000 scents :DDD).

Yes, seriously, I'm not really a big Eternity fan, I don't like the original ladies' version, for example, but this one comes across very well with its spicy, warm and sweet fragrance, especially now in autumn and winter. It has a pleasant charisma, lasts long enough and is suitable both for the day and for going out. Seen this way, it is an all-rounder and is therefore in my opinion a test value, especially if you don't pay any further attention to the noticeable but not further disturbing synthetics or if you don't mind them like I do.

And that was it then also already, so that I come to the end and wish you all still a nice evening, until then :)

Natural seasoning as Herbstaura
Recently, I was looking for a fragrance that would exude a fresh, citric aura on cooler autumn days, while at the same time having a minimal sweetish/aromatic touch. Simply to be able to radiate some warm body heat during weekend activities on cooler days in autumn.
The scent should be for casual occasions. In the office I normally use only discreet and super safe "Immergeher".

I already knew Boss' The Scent and the Armani Stronger with You - both are not soooo bad for me, but still a bit too synthetic/ kitschy for me. It should be a little greener and more natural. Joop's Wow! would have gone for that purpose too, but it's too strong for me. I wanted it more discreet.

I happened to stumble across this rather unknown Eternity flanker and have to say that he roughly meets my wishes in this respect. But I'm also a "CK"-friend (which I don't think is so common here). I think that the topic "Flame" was transferred quite well to the Eternity DNA. Especially the heart note with the rosemary and ambergris gradient are very special to me. If you like this kind of spiciness and like Eternity (or used to like it), you can take a closer look at Eternity Flame.

The bottle is quite chic, the perfume colour too and the fragrance pleasing. However it does not go for me over 10°C, since it is too sweetish for it nevertheless
