A sweet oriental with a vintage touch, very nice.
When I tried it this afternoon, thanks to a sample of a colleague, I expected something outdated or old, but what a surprise, I found an oriental with a vintage touch of carnation, magnificent, I did not imagine it like that and much less with the price that fits this beautiful work at present.

The output is a citrus and aromatic beauty very nice and sparkling, but lasts what a candy at the door of a school, nothing ... then the curtain opens with the three protagonists of this act, the carnation, cinnamon and vanilla, giving way to a sweet, resinous and spicy aroma, where plays, an important role, a semi-powdered carnation with a vintage air, beautiful. This complex aroma of carnation, resins and spices, is supported by a light woody background with a small nuance of lavender, which I love, joining a beautiful set. Already in the drying, this woody bottom, is acquiring greater prominence with that tone "alavandado" so beautiful.

It is an oriental perfume, and it feels complex in its execution, but, even so, it has an air of freshness that makes it very current, although not youthful, and I do not mean that it is cool, but because to be an oriental it is quite light and bearable, which I imagine is because of the received reformulations, since, not even remotely resembles what they say when it came out in the 80's.

Perfume performance is moderate, nothing out of the ordinary or remarkable, with a duration and wake more than acceptable for the price it has.

It is an aroma of fresh and temperate weather, and generally nocturnal, although due to its current lightness, it is very usable during the day and work, making it an excellent oriental for daily use.

A very nice oriental and I liked it a lot, but I would not recommend it blindly, it already has the imprint of the time it was created, and it is not very current taste, so, my recommendation would be focused for those people who like of the old school Orientals with that vintage tone of semi-powdered carnation.

Sorry for my bad english.

Passion for Men
This is a cologne that I wouldn't have expected to like. But like it, I do! I don't find it too strong or overpowering like a lot of other cologne's done in the 1980's. The smell is pleasant and yes, maybe a tad on the feminine side but I would say it has a nice mix of feminine and masculine. For the cheap price, I think it's a good buy and there really isn't anybody else wearing it so it stands apart from the most popular fragrances out there right now. This is an older cheapie that is still a goodie! I can still smell it on myself at the end of the day too so the staying power is decent.

An oriental fougére, complex, agreeable and with a sweet vanilla drydown.
It has an amusing resemblance with Prada Amber pour Homme Intense.+3
