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.
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!
