Typical 90s fresh fragrance
After the Givenchy Insense Ultramarine had spent a long time on my wish list, I have indulged myself this year. Actually, the old releases aren't really mine. But the fresh scents from the 90s have their charm and come across very likeable. Like CK Escape, which came out a year before. This Givenchy is almost 25 years old. Although I don't like this oldschool factor because of its nature, there are some. But they shouldn't be too old-fashioned, because I'm absolutely no vintage fan.
Givenchy is a brand I appreciate. I don't find some releases so exciting, but qualitatively they are almost all in a good condition.
The bottle is also very 90's, but like it. Very simple with beautiful lid and azure blue content. The colour of the fragrance is quite suitable, as it is a fresh aquatic.
The scent doesn't start to my liking at all. Aggressive and something stinging and disturbing is in the top note, which fortunately subsides after a few minutes. All in all it is for me a fragrance that changes little and is difficult to classify according to head-heart basis. Also, one should not stick too much to the pyramid. Some notes from it are well perceptible, some however not at all. Melon and currant are present, as well as a very pleasant aquatic background, which is very maritime. Sage is also present and offers pleasant freshness. Otherwise, there are also subtle spicy and fresh citric notes, but they are not too strong. All in all very balanced and of many facets a bit. Besides, it's pretty masculine for me, too.
Smells too close, it's not so pleasant. It scores rather on a certain distance and lies pleasantly in the air. He's got this typical '90s fresh charm. Absolutely suitable for everyday use, sports and leisure. In addition, despite its freshness for me a year-round fragrance, which also comes well when it is not so warm.
The performance is quite good for a fresh fragrance. Not bombastic, but satisfactory especially in leisure time. The Sillage is medium, not quite good, but nevertheless perceptible at close range. If you can spray a little bit more.
Overall a great balanced fragrance that accompanies pleasantly in simple situations in life.
