Summer trapped in a bottle ?
Today I have to make a comment about a perfume which I find incredibly beautiful Louis Vuitton Afternoon Swim. I have to say that I am a big fan of fresh scents and I wear them all year round. I got Afternoon Swim by a bottling of a nice perfume, but now enough babbling - now it goes to them. Evaluation of the fragrance. Afternoon Swim opens so beautifully fruity with an incredibly authentic orange note, as if you were just peeling the fruit, after about 10 minutes I still smell aquatic notes, but they are used very sparingly and are not at all exhausting, as is the case with many perfumes with aquatic notes. In the base I smell a little bit of the amber note, which is probably intended to improve the performance. Afternoon Swim is a masterpiece of a summer scent, but unfortunately Afternoon Swim has a performance problem. I only smell the fragrance on me for about 4 hours and silage is almost non-existent for only 1 hour, but unfortunately Afternoon Swim is so good that I can forgive it myself. The perfume lives up to its name 100%, a really simple but incredibly beautiful scent.

Vintage Chic
California in the summertime.
Early 60's.
Futuristic villa with view over the Pacific Ocean.
Spacious pool surrounded by perfectly trimmed lawn.
Clear forms, soft colours Everything a little undercooled, perfectionist, almost repellent - and therefore all the more attractive in its simple beauty.

He could fit in here, Afternoon Swim, with his cool, simple elegance.
Soft, fresh oranges and bitter-tart green mandarins are perceptible.
An artificial coolness underlaid with Ambroxan is achieved - but never exaggerated, never intrusive or too synthetic.
The slightly aquatic undertone makes the fragrance special and distinguishes it from the mass of citric summer scents.
Matching the presentation in the simple but beautiful deep blue bottle.
Unfortunately, it is relatively volatile, after 3 hours it may be re-sprayed.
Nevertheless, I like it extraordinarily well with its tart citrus freshness and the delicate aquatic substructure, which radiates a slightly arrogant coolness.
So good, in fact, that I'm seriously worried about my account.

The short swimming pleasure
It's time for fresh scents and there's one thing you can't miss: Afternoon Swim from Louis Vuitton. I would argue that its elegance is simple. There are not many ingredients. That's not necessary, because it smells wonderfully citric, for me even a bit aquatic, very linear, very refreshing, very life-affirming. Well, then everything is great, you could say. Sure, it doesn't keep for long, but we don't expect that with fragrances of this kind. At least I don't.

Yes, all that's true. Nevertheless, one must simply say: so little durability and so little sillage for the price? It is very little. But first things first. You spray the Afternoon Swim, feast on the freshness, take a short break from an activity or just sit there. And then something happens... the smell is gone. It happens very quickly and with force. As if this were a fleeting touch in a bottle. For example: I spray myself with a summer scent from AdP, not performance kings. A few hours later I take the LV and forget about AdP. Only half an hour to hour later, what do I smell on my wrist? Unfortunately not the LV.

In the end, it's every man for himself. The fragrance here is refreshing, linear and fun, it brings the right vibes. But only for a very short time, which is why it is only enough for me to test it. I like to spray after but not that often. Especially not for more than 200 Euros for a better 4711. The fragrance itself doesn't need many words, much more than described above doesn't happen. But purely olfactorically this is enough

Once upon a time in Hollywood
For many people, Hollywood stands for glamour, stars and starlets, the film business and acting. The film from the title also deals with an aspiring Hollywood star (Leonardo Di Caprio) and his right hand (Brad Pitt). Both try to get a piece of the pie in the heat of the Hollywood hills. This is not so easy, because unfortunately, good Leo is not very talented and always needs the help of his right hand. That devious warhorse has to build up his boss or do his dirty work for him. But he himself has a lot on his plate, especially when it comes to women. Also the hippies of the 1969s really get on his nerves! How does it all end? Look for yourself! What does this have to do with the above scent? Keep reading! Br />
When I first got into the diesel with "Afternoon Swim", I immediately had numerous pictures in front of my eyes. I saw a pool that was in the middle of the Hollywood Hills. Slightly raised, so that the owner can look over the star city while swimming. I also had to think of stones heated by the sun, in which the pool is framed. In addition to this, there are cuddly towels which the bather receives after swimming his laps. It is noticeable that he has decent chest hair, wears a gold chain and has porn sunglasses on his nose. Yes, maybe it's just that pool in which Leonardo in the above film makes his tracks? Who knows! But that's the way I picture him The swimming oasis is vaulted by orange and mandarin trees, which exude a wonderful summery scent and invite you to linger.

These are exactly the images that the fragrance opens up for me, although at first it doesn't seem so spectacular. A classic summer scent with subtle aquatic notes, light citric notes, which are softened by the bergamot. A little bit the impression of a minimal creaminess arises. The tangerine as well as the orange are always in the foreground in order to be well perceptible. A fragrance that delivers what it promises by title. Take a round in the pool, lie on the sun bed and enjoy the sun. No more, but no less either. In addition, Afternoon Swim is very linear and remains straight - except for the later, soft drydown. Unfortunately the pleasure with him is not much longer than the short round in the pool. It lasts a good 5 hours and only the first hour has enough power to be seen from a distance. However, in his honour, it must be said that he smells really noble, nothing completely new, but the few fragrances are very finely balanced.

CONCLUSION:
Nicer summer scent with head cinema feeling, which is unfortunately much too expensive! If it would cost around 100 Euros, I would surely become weak, but unfortunately Louis rolls the dice...very sad. In addition, many beautiful summer scents are already available at dumping prices, which makes a purchase even more distant. Louis might also consider whether there might not be 50ml versions of the different fragrances. What remains to be said, however, is that we are dealing with a great, rock solid, slightly noble, minimally aquatic and citric summer scent, which does not bore, spreads a good mood and makes you think of the Hollywood sets ;)

Have fun testing it!

Mandarin/bergamot and aquatic notes. Fresh and pleasant. Well blended but too expensive for what you get.
