Lucky so Gourmand
SOTD: 12/15/18

I fell in love the scent when I tested on Sephora, even my spouse loves the scent. Honey, plum and Hazelnut so well blended to my nose. The scent is almost close being in a gourmand category. Is fall/winter scent good for date nights, a clubbing fragrance as well. This scent projects like a beast when I applied on my skin in the bedroom my spouse smelled the scent from our bathroom about 18 foot away. Beast mode on my skin I got around 18+ hrs. So recommended


Scent: 9/10
Projection/Sillage: 9/10
Presentation/Design: 8/10
Longevity/Performance: 9/10: On my skin lasted 18+ hrs: varies on skin chemisty.
Overall: 9/10

the BETTER "Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo" the Tiramisu is well replaced by hazelnut and it lasts longer
The two scents play for me in the same stadium. I chose Lucky because it's the better overall experience. So I'd like to say that I don't like the normal 1 million... The hazelnut smell here has convinced me but simply a very tasty scent

Not a must have.
This is a sweet frag, not a gourmand.
But this was made for the hot weather.
So you don't piss off people near you.
And the fragrance becoming cloying.
It's an okay scent, nothing groundbreaking.
So there's no need to go broke over it.
Wait till the price drops or get it from the grey market.

I was hoping the hazelnut would be much stronger, but it's not.
You smell the honey and plum notes much better than the hazelnut. So the Notes base on top, stating that hazelnut is the strongest note...That's incorrect.
I would've loved a stronger grapefruit note as well.
Oh well, this is okay summer/spring scent, great fall fragrance.
You can use it whenever you'd like... But it's one of the few sweet frags that you can pull off during summer with no issues.

I used six sprays...both wrist, back & front of my neck, chest, and front of my shirt.

Will I buy this again? No(I won't finish this bottle).

What's the strength of this? EDT.

Can you use it as a unisex scent? Yes(Women can wear this frag with no issues).

Am I willing to trade this fragrance? Yes.

Should You Skip It, Sample It First or Blind Buy It? Sample it first for free at Macy's, Sephora, etc.

Is it the old, new formulation? New.

What's its availability; in production, limited edition or discontinued? In production.

Less than 1 million - lots of plum & hazelnut
The 1 Million Series. She gets on the nerves of many, also because of the often hated original. A bestseller widespread and often worn. Meanwhile there are already many Flanker. Cologne,Intense,Prive,EDP and now the Lucky. For such a classic, the Flankers keep within limits. Especially since I find them all very useful and well done. I was very excited about this Lucky one. As is the case with new introductions here. The curiosity for the plum note was great. Also the bottle: Very appealing and prolicious. Even if I don't wear the original: I like it and I like to wear the flankers. One thing I can say in advance: Apart from the Prive, this Lucky has little resemblance to the original DNA and is largely independent.

I was determined to test this one quickly. Which was a great fit: I bought another bottle of Dior Homme Eau from Douglas and the nice saleswoman offered me a sample. I was very happy inside, because I wanted to test it anyway. Samples are great, because one-time volatile tests are usually rather inaccurate. Samples a 2ml are perfect to decide if you like it or if you are on the wish list.
Star of this fragrance: The hazelnut is very clear. And don't forget the plum. These two notes are most perceptible. Very unique and you don't have the feeling that you've smelled it somewhere before. I can't think of a twin right now. Not at all.
At the start lots of plum and also pleasantly fresh notes. It starts a bit harder, but the freshness keeps it somewhat uncomplicated. Very pleasant, especially for plum lovers. The beautiful hazelnut note comes quickly. A true crowdpleaser in this composition. Very soft and sweet. A note I like very much. Especially in autumn for me one of the best notes, because this note is not too heavy, but still top for cooler and mild days. Cuddly. Added to this is soft wood. Especially the cashmere wood. Perfect for soft compositions and very harmonious with the hazelnut. Even a little patchouli shines through. I cannot smell all the notes from the pyramid, but the mixed composition is harmonious. Even if you don't smell the honey, it could help you with the hazelnut note. He also has a light coconut vibe in the station wagon.
The top note with the plum is a bit more prolacious, from the heart on it becomes more cuddly and I don't find it so unsuitable for everyday use. On colder days a nice alternative for some occasions. Of course it is also suitable for the nightlife like the whole 1 million-family, whereby the performance is rather top for the everyday life.
Performance: The first hour very powerful, also afterwards very perceptible. Not penetrating, but well perceptible far above the skin. It lasts about 6 hours, and then it subsides slightly for about 2-3 hours. Top!

For me, it wasn't love at first sight. I like him better and better on the second and third tests. Maybe even better in autumn. A fragrance that points above all with its uniqueness. He's got something. Quite an interesting station wagon. For now, I'm giving 8.5., maybe it'll go up in the fall. I will probably buy the 50ml version for autumn.
If you are not averse to sweet and fruity fragrances, you should test them. Even 1 million enemies should not be deterred by the name. Very unique and very independent, especially for a flanker.

Nothing special
This one is certainly the most summery of the One Million series (besides the Cologne), not bad, but not really special either. I like sweet scents, Lucky also starts sweet (hazelnut is clearly recognizable) and then changes into fresh-fruity, which reminds me a little of the scents of Hollister and co. Nothing you haven't smelled somewhere before, though.

Not so lucky...
Extremely sweet/fruity opening. Heavy patchouli/lightly sweet drydown. I get a hint of something that's in the same ballpark as praline and I'm guessing that's the hazlenut. I don't get the grapefruit in the opening but I feel I get lightly into the drydown.

The transition from opening to drydown was a bit weird initially but I felt I got used to it as it went on. Don't get much of a connection with the original 1 million. See more similarities with black xs because of the sweet opening.

Lasts 9 hours on me. About 2 hours of projection. Moderate sillage. This fragrance is pleasant but uninspiring. The opening and the drydown don't go very well together if you ask me although both stages are pleasant enough.

I'm not sure why it's released at this time of year, going into summer. I wouldn't wear this in summer. I'd only wear this in spring in a cold country. This is a winter/autumn fragrance for me.

As a person who likes bang for my buck this isn't worth the money and is forgettable. Way better options out there. Also, try before you buy, you may be very disappointed.
