Olfactory lemon tiramisu !
If a fragrance is already called "Casual Life" and its pyramid also promises citric freshness, I won't let you ask for long ... And yes, right after spraying it on I switch to casual fashion, slow down my breathing, think of chilling in hammocks and hear mine from somewhere smooth jazz. In this or a similar way you can imagine the feeling of what this Uomo Flanker from Ferragamo might promise.
But it's not quite like that - at least for me. Because immediately after spraying on, a strong coffee praline-like note can be heard next to the citric freshness when sniffing on the skin. On the other hand, a sophisticated blend of citric, flower and gourmand is created at half arm's length - for about half an hour. The top notes then begin to reduce a little so that the praline gradually moves into the first row. But this is the moment when I like to squeeze myself into the second row. Because Gourmant is not really my case ...
But Casual Life is completely honest. He has the chocolate in his heart and there it is. But here it is called "Eiskaffee", whereby it also passes as Tiramisu and thus expresses its kinship to the Uomo classic. With about 60%, it now prevails over citric, whereas the violet only plays a subordinate role, but is still audible. After approx. 3-4 hours the base appears, whereby the total tone of the smell becomes increasingly softer and rounder by the inserted woods and the musk (here a white cedar is at work, which has nothing creaky in itself). In this respect, the praline content is reduced to approx. 50% again and Casual Life is very balanced and pleasantly light towards the back.
Well, I really wanted to know and ordered it, but I should have known better that this chocolate hit doesn't really fit me despite all the citric. But that's what experiments are for ;-) But my light "antipartum" against gourmant must not lead to the conclusion that this fragrance is somehow bad. On the contrary, I think it's rather an insider tip (also compared to the low number of users so far). Because something really unusual is woven here: citrus freshness and praline sweetness. Both are not cheap and optimally balanced. So this Flanker is an all around harmonious smell and has besides with 7-8 hours over tidy power, also regarding Sillage.
I don't usually go into the bottle, but this one is really ingenious: its light blue underlines the casual feeling of the fragrance, and there's also a silver colouring on the sides of the raised Ferragamo letters. Very suitable and something different. In addition: No separate cap, but a sprayer with cover optic, whereby the mechanics do not allow accidental spraying (trigger is retracted by finger pressure) - real cool.
Altogether a very successful and quite valuable scent, which I recommend for the use in spring and autumn, in particular for the spare time. For me, it is not so suitable, but for gourmand fans with a tendency to invigorate freshness it is certainly a tip. Because its citric not only lasts until the end, but is also neither artificial, nor pointed or sweetened, but valuable and harmonically tuned to a soft yet strong Tiramisu, even if this Uomo DNA is here called iced coffee ;-)
