Clever flanker!
Finally the word “essence” means something, as I clearly smell some differences with the original Declaration, and precisely in the way “essence” may suggest. That is: not only the juice is stronger here, but it also smells thicker, more dry, remarkably darker and smokier, with also a muskier and somehow “sweatier” vein. As a true “essence” of Declaration, indeed; cut out the fancy bright freshness and the crisp preppy look, go right to the juicy core. It’s obviously still Declaration in broad terms, so that’s the smell more or less; just bolder and dirtier. The drydown kind of "reconciles" with the soothing smoothness of the original Déclaration, still slightly smokier and muskier. Perhaps less classy and surely less fresh the original version overall, but totally non-redundant if you own that already. The Mr. Hyde of Dr. Declaration!

A Fresh Smile
It opens up with a sudden citrus note running ahead of everything. One may hardly have a moment to start thinking: “Ah, another boring summer fresh.. “. When a sudden realization of a complex balance arises. Woodsy and Spicy elements were held tightly together by the citrus and brought into light. Once the complexity was revealed, the citrus pulls back. It’s job was done, the whole was given a direction, a direction of extraordinary fresh.

Now everything settles and blends into harmony. The only thing you are left with is pure clean freshness. Nothing dominates. Nothing sticks out. No sharp edges to be found.

You find yourself with a smile.

[Raczej nie] Ostry, słodki zapach to coś czego nie lubię, a ten właśnie taki jest. Coś jakby pieprzno-kwiecisty. Niestety - ma to coś.+1
