Crowdpleaser with unobtrusive performance
My last comment for now on a perfume de marly fragrance. Some may follow if the opportunity arises. My summary for this beautiful brand: Most fragrances are very safe and will probably appeal to the masses. I tested Layton, Pegasus, Herod, Godolphin, Oajan, Carlisle and also this Darley. The others didn't like me so much about the pyramids yet, but the ones I tested are very solid and some are worth buying. Some however a little overpriced.
Now for the Darley: A fragrance with little attention here. 3 comments and 2 statements. Justifiable or definitely worth a test? In my opinion a fragrance with little recognition value, where I expect more for the money. A really pleasant fragrance that will not make you feel uncomfortable anywhere.
Indicated here as a fragrance twin is Reflection Man. Rightly? Roughly speaking, perhaps in a similar direction, but very big differences if you look more closely. Even though this Darley has light floral notes, these are rather in the background. At the beginning it begins with a lot of mint, very pleasantly fresh paired with subtle citric notes and fresh lavender. From the DNA I find him more similar to Le Male than Reflection. Here however clearly more easily by much fresh mint. A pleasant freshness with a little sensuality. Pleasant also by the beautiful base with soft woody notes, amber, patchouli and a beautiful but subtle sweetness by the tonka bean. The design is very balanced and it does not move too much in one direction. Very gentle fragrance that should please many.
The performance is decent, but the Sillage is very close. Also freshly sprayed rather discreet and disappointing for this DNA. The shelf life is fine with a few hours. Thanks to the rather weak Sillage this is versatile applicable.
Unisex is justified, although I find him more masculine. Especially due to the similarities to its twin fragrances.
Due to the high price there is no recommendation to buy from me. Price is 185 Euro a 125ml. In many shops you can get it a little cheaper, but still overpriced for this DNA. Reflection is also not much more expensive than this.
I consider Rasasi Maa Arwaak for him a cheap alternative. A great low budget fragrance that goes in a similar direction and has a much better performance.
I give 8.0 because it's really very pleasant. But I wouldn't buy it for that price.
