Very good pleasant fragrance but could last longer

When I first smelled this fragrance in a perfumery in Munich, I thought to myself: Wow ... this fragrance reminds me of something I know. I asked the consultant if she had a comparable fragrance (since the fragrance was very expensive for the small quantity), but after some attempts of the lady I noticed that there was no comparable one. So I decided for the fragrance.

I still don't regret the purchase. The scent smells very fresh summery, when I smell it I immediately think of my childhood by the sea in Italy (it was beautiful) .

I tested the fragrance almost daily for 1-2 months. What bothered me was that I didn't get any compliments for the scent at first. At the beginning I didn't know why, because everyone I had consciously shown the scent to, liked the scent very much. But not other people's. But after some time it became clear to me. The fragrance is discreet, it is not particularly noticeable. It smells very fresh and pleasant, but it is not a fragrance that takes centre stage. And that's the only contra point on the scent. Everyone knows the feeling when you are approached and someone tells you: "boah, they smell but good". That only happens with this fragrance when you hug someone or come closer.

So all in all, I still love this fragrance. I find in unique and from the smell simply only very summery, pleasant and great.
If he had a stronger presence so he would smell stronger he would be for me a smooth 10/10.

Love greetings your Avecmoi aka Alex

Okay. Okay. But not worth his money for a long time!
The first comment on this fragrance came from my mama. She said, "Do you wear cologne? "You smell like my grandma used to smell!" I think that says it all! With a fragrance that costs on average 100€ per 50 ml ;) .

Is the Nerolidusche standard equipment?
Up to a certain point I don't really care about the price-performance ratio of perfumes; if a fragrance smells special and has been artfully composed, it stands alone and can taste whatever it wants. If I can't afford it or don't want to: Please, that's the way it is. But when I recently got a sample of Tom Ford's current "Acqua" Flanker for "Neroli Portofino" from a nice raffle prize, I really thought during the test that I was crazy: It smelled so damn identical to "4711 - Echt Kölnisch Wasser" that I decided to verify this impression in an A-B comparison. So here are my notes; preceded by the result of an offer search on the net:

4711 - Genuine Eau de Cologne: Currently between 12 and 16€ for 100ml.
Neroli P.A.: Currently between 140 and 150€ for 100ml.

Impression:

4711: Slightly greenish-herbal, leaf rather than fruit. More refreshing. The well-known "metallic" bitterness. Input even more intense than the Tom Ford. Back out creamy.

Neroli P.A.: Very similar, but somewhat fleshier, more mandarin. A little less metal, but very soon the most delicate amber breath, which is only perceived because it is the only component that does not smell of cologne. Quieter, but slightly more linear in the fragrance. Becomes aquatic towards the end, which does not play a major role due to the proximity of the skin that has occurred up to that point.

I admit that if you don't like the classic metal note at 4711, you might be better off with Neroli Portofino (Acqua). Or even with ten, twenty other good - no: better, more special - colognes that are available for comparatively cheap money. "Farina Opposite", for example, wipes the floor with Neroli P.A.. The advantage is the significantly longer durability of the Ford in contrast to 4711: two hours instead of just one. Please: Whoever mounts the 800ml Molanus bottle of 4711 (about 60€) with a few cable ties behind the driver's seat only needs a hose and an industrial Mayo pump (ask at the local French fries shop) to shower properly before work in summer. You smell awesome for the rest of the day and still save money.

For these reasons, I can't judge the scent for the best of reasons. You don't have to.
