The little brother of the big pour homme
What do you do in times of Corona, when all scent temples are closed but questions for a new commentary arise? First of all, switch the console in the bathroom from winter to summer due to the predicted development of outside temperatures. And then think about what's in the cupboard for which I haven't yet written a comment. When there are, for example: AdP Colonia Club, Acqua di Gio Essenza, Light Blue pour homme. And on the latter my decision has been made.
Sooner or later, most fashion labels come up with the idea of pulling money out of the pockets of their esteemed and usually solvent clientele by launching fragrances. As a rule, this is always successful if the fragrances are at least handcrafted well and in order not to completely embarrass themselves or, even worse, to alienate the esteemed and solvent clientele, many labels make use of renowned perfumers, as in this case. With Alberto Morillas, who recently made a name for himself through his commitment to Philipp Plein, one of the top perfumers has been won over.
Dolce & Gabbana, a great label of two Italians who, like so many of their compatriots, seem to have been born with style. So what could be more obvious than to scent and round off casual but always extravagant and at the same time elegant clothing
The One, especially in the perfume version is for me the perfect companion for a dinner date. Pour Homme in the original version of the 90s was in my opinion the seducer par excellence and fitted the brand like a glove. But Italian fashion and elegance is particularly effective in the summer months, so it was obvious to create a fragrance for the warmer season.
The result: Pour homme in the Light Blue edition.
How does light blue start? Fresh, fruity, citric. A prelude that literally brings summer home to me. From the beginning I also hear a spicy, slightly peppery note, which takes over more and more in the course of the first two hours, but which does not kill the sparkling start, but only refers it gently to the left and right to take its place in the centre. After another two hours a slightly woody note joins the previous performance before the complete ensemble disappears after about six hours. Unfortunately this is similar to many summer scents, it is in the nature of things that the heavy oriental scents stick and last better and longer due to their ingredients.
Let's get to the evaluation:
I still find the fragrance itself great even after many years. Sure, we're talking about the mainstream section, there's no Elysium of Roja in life. Nevertheless, for everyday life, but also for the after work lounge, from my point of view it is suitable without restrictions.
Sillage, yes well, you have to fog yourself in so that after two hours there is still some attention left.
Shelf life as described above between five and six hours. One may criticize this, but one should keep in mind that we are first of all in the middle class and secondly in a price environment where this is average.
The bottle is inspired by the "old" pour homme fragrance, quite okay, also here good average.
All in all, I think the fragrance is completely underrated here. Anyone who is looking for an affordable and wearable summer scent is recommended to test it.
And even though I have light blue in my collection, the original pour homme is still unmatched today!
