Very helpful Review
A typical Cologne
Etat Libre D'Orange - a great brand with mostly fancy names and stylish flacons from France. Apart from Sécrétions Magnifiques, there are many fragrances with interesting concepts that I wanted to test. Just before summer, this cologne comes in handy and chose a small bottling from an online retailer. There are few fragrances with the Cologne additional title that really knock my socks off. However, this is more due to the concept. Colognes should be solid, fresh and clean. This cologne, which by the way is an EdP, but is still very cologne-like, fulfils this purpose.
The scent pyramid is very clear. Few scents, no division into head, heart and base. In fact, this fragrance is very simple and straightforward, which I find appropriate for a cologne. Nevertheless, it is high quality from the beginning. At the beginning it starts with lots of bergamot, citric with a slight blood orange note. In the beginning it splashes like this, smelled a thousand times. Later with the musk it gets better. Somehow it develops totally beautifully. With a nice flowery mix. The floral notes, especially orange blossom, are very soft and fresh and go well with this fresh cologne.
All in all, this fragrance is a typical cologne: fresh, uncomplicated and the big surprises and highlights are missing. This in a very solid and convincing way.
Unfortunately the performance is also cologne-like. The Sillage is ok, the durability is rather meagre with about 4-5 hours. For about 100 Euro a 100ml this scent is not cheap, but still in the frame. Not a bad choice for the summer.
Unisex is absolutely justified. It's right in the middle.
