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!
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 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 :)
