Aquatic with no soul
Out of the entire Anthology collection, I chose to go with this & La Force. Why? I don't know... I guess you can ask why do people wear white after Labor Day? I must admit after testing all of the collection, I did find that Le Bateleur projected more & lasted a tad more than the others. Key word. TAD!

This is still a weak fragrance that belongs in the aquatic family, and that is one of my least favorite groups. This last on my skin 4-5 hours if I am lucky but it becomes a skin scent rather swiftly. I noticed a long time ago I am not really into soft, weak fragrances. I love heavy hitters who make a statement. Not those who run away from a fight.. That is exactly what this entire collection does. At least on my skin.

Le Bateleur along with the rest of the collection line is a synthetic, watered down mess says my nose. Teenagers and those in their early twenties may find these sorts of things pleasant, but I for one do not. A watery, woody concoction that Goofy along with Donald Duck created I am sure. My gosh D&G/Proctor & Gamble WTH are you guys doing????

A spicy aquatic...
Le Bateleur is from Dolce & Gabbana's Anthology collection is a fresh, spicy aquatic fragrance with a good use of one of my favourite notes: juniper berry. It's a fresh and tangy note that whenever I smell it always wakes me up. I personally do like this fragrance but even I have to admit that it smells generic and it's discontinued so I don't find that such a loss. It does have very nice individual notes like coriander seed and green cardamom which works well with the water notes and tangy juniper berry, before drying down to a generic cedar wood base. Not bad, but there are better options out there.

Water...
Boring and inoffensive.

It opens beautifuly but then dries down to a generic aquatic theme with a weak cedar note.

Sillage is average, but lasting power is very weak, around two hours. Did not work for me.

Salty cedar and herbs
I would go so far to say that Le Bateleur 1 is the most masculine in the Anthology series.

Opening rather strong, with somewhat bitter herbs and sharp citrus, such intensity is usually found in men's cologne. Not to say that women can't wear this, but I do see this as more of a masculine fragrance, something that a woman may struggle to wear.

The cedar note tends to dominate in this fragrance, like a freshly timbered forest. Amidst this interesting blend are subtle spices and oceanic saltiness.

Le Bateleur 1 isn't particularly subdued, with its sillage quite overbearing, especially when over-applied. There are elements of this fragrance that draws some resemblance to Escape for Men by Calvin Klein.

I don't refer to this fragrance as being anything even remotely sexy, however I find the scent itself somewhat refreshing and relaxing. I'd possibly place this fragrance in a casual, 'outdoorsy' category.

Since having discovered every single fragrance in the Anthology line, I find that each and every one of their fragrances demand an acquired taste. Le Bateleur 1 is possibly the hardest fragrance in the series to like, but the one most likely to grow on you.
