Invictus Vodka 2018
Invictus Aqua 2018 really doesn't have an easy life.. his big brother Invictus Aqua 2016 is the popular and unbeatable insider tip!
And yet I find IA 2018 HAS its raison d'être. It has an almost "alcoholic" freshness, which I think is due to the grapefruit (previously "grapefruit peel"), as well as the stronger focus on the violet leaf.
Somehow more citric than its predecessor, "more ethereal" could also be said. (VI. is that what I mean by "alcoholic"...)
Although the fragrance may seem a little trivial at first (if you don't know it), I find it to be very superior in the long run. It has a pretty good durability, which is really good for a "Freshy", and not of course!
The notes give it a slightly youthful appearance, which makes you feel really refreshed and sporty when wearing it. I'd say it's more youthful than IA 2016, which is neither good nor bad, but on some days I find it just that refreshing.
On the days I wear it, it gives me exactly the feeling and the summery kick I need, mainstreamer or not! And one simply notices that the makers understand their craft (they should probably also be one of the biggest designer fragrances ever...) and has a well thought-out fragrance DNA.
At the beginning I was a bit biased towards the Invictus series, because the original fragrance is a bit too chemically sweet to wear often, just a bit annoying. And when you smell the DNA from it, of course you immediately have that association. But if you take a closer look you will notice that PR has learned a lot from the Flankers, and the annoying aspects have cushioned much better.
