The sailor - now also without shirt and can
I had already written a comment on this fragrance in May. However, the day was very warm and the temperatures were inspiring neither for me as a writer, nor for the inclined reader.
This fragrance fits much more into the upcoming autumn.

I actually only got to 'Le Male' via 'Cabana'. Now I can compare and give back my impressions to this scent.

The scent was in the 'soap shop', a test bottle right in front of it. A short sprayer, continue shopping and wait.
When the first cloud of alcohol has disappeared, the scent is very linear and there are no major changes. Very sweet with a touch of the Oriental (As I know today, towards 'LeMale'.). I found him pleasant. So I went back again and put a bottle in the shopping basket.

A winter scent for the office. I hadn't noticed Le Male at the time. It passed me by.
It was only when I was approached several times in the office about 'Le Male' that I sat down with the scent of each other.

In contrast to 'Le Male', as described above, 'Cabana' does not have a fragrance. It's always the same from the first spray to the last breath on the skin. The small subtleties, such as the cedar, of 'Le Male' are clearly missing here. Also the vanilla does not have the fine effect of a 'LeMale'.

When compared to a noise or a fabric, 'Cabana' is a bit louder and coarser than 'Le Male'.

The fragrance is clearly perceptible and also the shelf life is fine. Far above what I have experienced otherwise with usual "drug smell".

The bottle is well crafted and the sprayer is finely adjustable.
It has two advantages for me.
Firstly, it does not need to be removed from the can and there is no need to "arm" it by pulling off the neck ring.
Second of all, I don't have to touch the sailor. I know that besides me, other perfumers have an aversion to the feel of the original.
So, as mentioned above: Without shirt and can.

In itself, 'cabana' is a beautiful fragrance, especially for the small amount of money that has to be paid for its purchase. It is cheap and does not look cheap. A 'one to one copy' of 'Le Male' will not be purchased by the buyer.

The missing cedar can be replaced by layers with 'Scotish', but is not so mine.

If you like it finer, you should go to 'Le Male'.

Cabana' is probably the best drugstore fragrance right now. He does not have to hide behind 'Le Male' and may stand next to it, albeit with some distance. A test, between buying detergent and pet food, is always worth it.

At the end a general tip about LaRive fragrances:
Unlike many other fragrances, they carry stamped or printed on the bottom of the box, an "expiration date". So if you are willing to buy the box, take a quick look at the bottom and don't take the one with the least durability.


Here again a call to the 'only co-readers': There is no need for an Aventus or an extensive collection. Enthusiasm counts. It does not always have to be the perfect spiritual outpouring. Anyone can help shape it. We are looking forward to your contributions, as well as the exchange about it.
Who wants to stay in front of the door?

La Rive Cabana

In my opinion this is inspired by Le male, cuba gold, and perhaps javari.

It is extremely sweet fragrance, that on thy drydown bears resemblance with le male.

It is not that bad, quite good actually as a substitue fragrance. I was wondering using this to play with layering/mixing it with my cuba gold. Vanilla note in Cabana is very strong and could contribute to Cuba Gold Longevity/projection.

All in all it is a good cheapie, especially after 30min starting with application.

try it, it wont hurt.
