The bottle itself is a varied pleasure: a narrow, darkened glass bottle in the form of a body/deodorant spray that is pressurised with aerosol to ensure a constant spraying experience without pumps. Something different, like it.
I came across the scent more by accident. For once not about parfumo, but on YouTube.
So far I was rather reserved there - too subjective, only one opinion, street surveys... cut up? -but, what can I say? Advertised as an inexpensive A
*s cracker, almost an insider tip, presented in only three videos.
When I found the scent via detours here and had positive statements ready, the matter was clear. The price actually did not allow any further considerations: What's there to lose?
Well then, ordered, mind you in the UK (still belonging to the European domestic market), a few days later there.
The packaging is clever and practical: two plastic trays, held together by a green banderole, on top a sticker promising at least six hours longevity, wait and see...
Opened, sprayed on (yes, the spray head is gentle to dose), ten-second alcohol cloud awaited, smelled, enthusiastic. A current CDNIM should serve as a comparison.
First of all: Yes, you have to dose more generously and the Sillage is not so excessive, quicker very close, but similarly durable as the (allegedly somewhat weaker) new CDNIM-Batches.
It begins quite similarly with a bergamot overload, followed by a fruity, slightly oriental-woody heart. The base is also a musk and ambergris composition, but without smoke, CDNIM light so to speak - and that's exactly what I like so much: It is more pleasing, rounder, not so harsh - uncomplicated. And for 14-18€? No contradiction.
More synthetic than a Supremacy Silver, which I found to be authentic during its short performance, not quite as fresh (but also not as airy-light), but as inexpensive as a Vibrant Leather.
The way this fragrance wants to go is clear. He doesn't deny it either - honestly.
If you want to keep it short and don't want to test yourself (like me and many "fellow sufferers") through countless interpretations, the Perfumer's Choice Victor N°9 is the perfect choice.
Clear purchase recommendation, as long as the smell still exists and the borders are still duty-free!
