Summer in a bottle
Nice blend, very fresh and clean.Great and dominate marine notes,less citrus,fine lavender followed by gentle spicy-woody accords.I could also detect a dose of nutmeg and a splash of blackcurrant but I can not recognize any sage(the smell of sage, blackcurrant,myrtle and pine is characteristic of Samos island,the Greek island I come from,so I could not go wrong with these smells).
The scent is a little bit linear(I have no problem with this) and create a sense of an elegant fresh shower gel.There are similarities with Kenzo pour Homme and Versace Man Eau Fraîche but Mauboussin PLTO has it's own character.The longevity is not bad at all (minimum 6 hours on my skin) and sillage is decent.Last but not least,all the ladies I know like him.
In my opinion for less than 20 euros it is a bargain!
I have to admit that I like this brand but I don't like to judge a book by its cover. Unfortunately here I can't see any legend or a hero. Legendary are the ink pens of this brand,but this send...I had higher expectations from him.It's a common fresh-citrus...
Acceptable but weak
Fresh lemon in the opening followed by levander and a pink pepper essence.Then remains citrusy and there are also some woody notes blended with a very small dose of amber.I can not recognize any cyclamen, Jasmine,vanilla, or patchouli.It is not a complex...
