The shower gel perfection
Top 10 men's fragrances, a rating of 8.6 and lots of enthusiastic comments here on Parfumo, what could go wrong I thought.
Sample Ordered, eagerly awaiting the arrival of this, unpacked and immediately sprayed on.
Do you know that if you press an open, half-empty bottle of shower gel and immediately a breath of wind with a gentle fragrance blows out of the opening towards you ?
I had the same impression when I first smelled The One for Men.
I had actually hoped for more and somehow I found it boring.
Not because the smell was bad, not at all, but because I had felt it 1000 times in my nose.
But all right, now it's here, and now you're gonna taste it, I figured.
Sprayed again and smelled again.
And yes, I do like him. I can't get that image of shower gel out of my head
Some of you may think to yourself: "so my shower gel doesn't smell like that."
I used AXE shower gels and deodorants when I was a teenager, and I remember them smelling exactly the same, but with less finesse and more synthetics
But just then a thought came to me:
Does this fragrance even smell like shower gel or does shower gel smell like it?
To be honest, I think it's simply because perfumer Oliver Polge has definitely tried to create an almost stereotypically masculine fragrance, one that shouldn't offend anyone and can be worn by anyone. Similar to the scents of a drugstore shower gel.
The result is a good fragrance that for me smells at the beginning mainly of orange and a little bit of basil. It is quite sweet, but still on a bearable level and because of the shower gel association it has something very fresh for me.
If you give the fragrance some time, light tobacco and cedar notes unfold but unfortunately this is also his biggest problem. Before this point is reached, and the base notes can really come into their own, the fragrance is almost faded. Durability and the sillage are unfortunately simply not good !
Because it is hardly ever teasing you can wear it to various occasions and especially the typical male DNA makes it a good date scent candidate, unfortunately in this case secret spraying is required if you want to get away with it all evening.
Short summary :
Good smell with known DNA, bad H+S.
You can definitely try it, the good one is also quite cheap.
Can also understand why many people like him, but with this score I had hoped for more.
