K for King?
K. Just K and done. Basically I'm a big fan when people are able to get to the point with what they want to tell you. But a simple, single letter for a fragrance takes getting used to.
I wonder what the K stands for King? Maybe even emperor? The "jeweled crown" as a clasp makes a good impression at least visually and is a pleasant change from the clasp monotony in the industry.
But at the end of the day, the content is what counts, so let's get down to business. Since it's an eau de parfum and not cologne, two sprayers should be enough for now.
Wrist to the nose and - whoa, what is that??? Extremely sharp in the beginning I'm inclined to wash the stuff off immediately, but I resist the urge and force myself to give it a second chance. So first distract myself for 30 minutes and then try a smell test again. And lo and behold, the sharpness of the beginning has given way to a citric base note, which I find quite interesting. I was rather prepared for a really sweet bomb, but as so often in life it just comes differently. This citrus note continues throughout the entire duration and this is very good for the fragrance.
As it progresses, K becomes slightly softer, rounder and more synthetic overall, but without ever becoming annoying. This also differentiates him from many others, which will eventually have to be classified under the heading of headache causes. I attribute the slight sweetness, which at some point comes to light, to a floral note.
Little by little the synthetics continue to assert themselves, yet the lemon still remains audible in the background. Towards the end, however, the lemon also fades away before the fragrance collapses and disappears relatively spontaneously. Until it comes to this point, however, 8 hours have passed, the time period could be extended considerably by a little more lavish activation of the spray head.
So, what's my résumé?
In my opinion, the fragrance is more suitable for young dynamics (or those who think they are :-) ), is not suitable for hot summer days due to its subliminal sweetness, easy to wear in autumn and spring, blessed with a good portion of durability. The Sillage is quite strong in the beginning, but then it diminishes just as much, in my opinion more is possible. Flacon: Nicely made, especially the "lid" is something different, something new.
A solid fragrance that fits perfectly into the Dolce & Gabbana line, yet I find better alternatives with the brand's better, as discussed the pour homme, which is much more independent and distinctive.
