Little attention - wrongly
I tested this one a long time ago. Now I have ordered this one a short time ago. This is a fragrance twin to Creed's Millesime Imperial. My second twin after Ed Hardy's Love & Luck. And I can say: Both come very close and cost only about 1/5 of the Creed. I also like the MI of Creed quite well, but I wouldn't pay the price, especially since the performance is not convincing at all. But as with many Creed scents there are really very cheap alternatives, like this one.
Sean John is the fashion line of Sean Combs aka. Puff Daddy or also P.Diddy. Pretty much everyone should know him by that name. This is not a typical "celebrity scent", because the prices are cheap but clearly above drugstore level. You can also smell that in the fragrance. In my opinion, it is of a very high quality, especially for this price. I bought 75ml for almost 75ml. Fair.
The bottle has been "modernized". Too bad, the bottle indicated here looks nicer than the one I own. The new one fits well in the hand and still doesn't look bad. Since I'm interested in the fragrance anyway, it's not really important. Whether the fragrance has been reformulated. Probably, as can be read here. I can't confirm that, since I don't know him for so long
The first 5 minutes I find the smell slightly unpleasant. Smells like an ordinary toilet freshener. Luckily this disappears quickly. It's hard to break the fragrance down into individual scents here, as the big pyramid confirms. It has many citrus notes, which are wonderfully fresh. In addition, there are fruity notes, especially tangerine. Slightly sweet notes are also perceptible, which can be credited to the Tonka bean. Nevertheless, the fragrance is fresh through and through, and in a very modern way. Towards the end it ends softly woody. A light and sensual sweetness is very pleasant next to the wood.
I don't feel the performance is as bad as I thought. A detailed test showed a durability and about 6-7 hours with good sillage in the beginning and later rather well perceptible.
Beside this one I can also recommend the Ed Hardy, especially since the two are very similar. Also goes in the direction of Creed MI. But it is much softer and more gentle, which I prefer. A nice scent for spring and summer. Not too complicated, which recommends it especially for everyday use.
