Very helpful Review
Alberto beats Giorgio black and blue.
Moin you dear,
hope you are well.
Temperatures are finally rising again, spirits are improving, clothes are thinning, and winter scents are slowly being put back in the back of the closet.....thank you for the sweet, loud, and intense companions that got us through the day this year, even in icy times. I'll see you guys in 8 months. I will miss you guys. I won't miss the cold temperatures and snow. But you've inspired enough people now. Now it's everyone else's turn again. So welcome to all spring and summer fragrances. Whereby, of course, everyone should be allowed to wear what he wants at any time. :-) But I am quite classical. And my start this year actually makes the, on the way to become a classic, Acqua di Gio Profumo from the house of Armani......also.....let's start:
The bottle: 10/10
What is there to say about this bottle? He looks incredibly elegant, high-quality and noble - and he is also......super processing, ingenious sprayer, despite the black design, the fill level can be seen. And unlike the new Profondo is here also the cap still magnetic.
The fragrance: 9.5/10
Let's give ourselves to the Deutzverlauf briefly....
The fragrance starts with a very slight fruitiness that comes from the bergamot. So do not get me wrong, the fragrance is by no means fruity, but you can smell the bergamot at the beginning quite subtly raus. However, after a few seconds you also know in which direction this fragrance goes. Because it immediately joins very concisely an incredibly beautiful, aquatic chord. This also remains until the end at the party. It does not take long until sage and rosemary join the party. These two notes, paired with the incense in the base, give this scent an incredibly nice herbaceousness. Patchouli makes the whole story round and ensures that the herbaceousness is not too penetrating. Again and again you read here yes that this is an old man fragrance. Also that you should choose an elegant outfit for this. I don't think so, yes - the incense and rosemary may evoke associations with the good old green scents of the 90's - but this scent is still much more modern. Here it's a perfect interplay of aquatic-fresh and spicy-herbaceous notes. I think the combination here in this fragrance is just incredibly perfect. And honestly? It's nice that Mr. Morillas dared to combine these fragrance notes. This fragrance smells so incredibly high quality and all the notes flow together perfectly to create this olfactory experience. Oh one more thing.....I have read in a comment or two that some find the fragrance to be a warm scent. That however is actually the last word that would come to my mind about this fragrance. But that's how different perceptions are.
An incredibly fresh, aquatic-herbaceous fragrance.
Here explains itself also directly my heading. Do not worry, I did not want to create the appearance here that a 71-year-old star perfumer beats up on an 86-year-old fashion designer. God forbid....
Much more, the colors from the headline are what I associate with this fragrance. A green and blue scent that I'm sure will eventually achieve something akin to legend status. And that's as a flanker. Kudos.
Shelf life: 8/10
Anyone who already knows a review of mine knows what this means. Per hour one point - makes a shelf life of about 8 hours with me. So for a fresh fragrance really super.
Again, I can't complain at all, the first two hours really very present, not loud - but definitely noticeable to anyone who comes within an arm's length.
After that, it gets a little softer, but still good for the opposite person to smell when hugging.
Info on the side: I have a batch from 2016 and a batch from 2020 (180ml) here. Both in the scent, as well as the H/S there is no discernible differences to my sensibilities. I read here often that the new batches are disastrous, I can not sign so at all.
The fragrance actually fits everywhere - it is a classic all-rounder. For people under 20 I imagine him with something difficult - in winter he is definitely nothing for me (but that's because of my preference for sweet-spicy, warm and creamy fragrances in winter). It wouldn't necessarily be my first choice for a date or for partying either. However, it will never be completely out of place here either. I also wear it well with shorts and a shirt. So not only a fragrance for the business outfit m.M.n. .
Anecken the fragrance will not great, however, it is also not a fragrance that brings me permanently comlimente. Feedback is rare, and now and then you hear then just the same, that he smells something old school.....but I think the vast majority will like this fragrance. My wife likes it too, but favors other scents on me.
Price / performance: 9/10
This fragrance just smells incredibly high quality and elegant. H / S are really okay. I bought the fragrance on Black Friday for 90,00€ (180ml). The price is hard to achieve - but possible - and then also really more than fair.
A really beautiful, green-blue all-rounder with which you can not go far wrong. A designer - which could also be Niche. However, I would not advise blindbuy here - by the herbaceous chords this fragrance will not be everyone's cup of tea. Nevertheless, an incredibly beautiful fragrance, which had the honor to ring in my olfactory beginning of spring.
As always hanseatische greetings
