At the source
Until now I only knew the beautiful Tommy Girl, who I appreciate very much.

Yesterday I was also introduced to the men's version.

The kinship is undeniable - also the Man bubbles up to me like a clear fresh spring
The triad of mint, lavender and bergamot has a very invigorating effect, but the rose gives it a soft flowery touch.
The apple appears transparent and the cotton blossom delicately powdery.

But Tommy stays clear and is a soft refresher in summer.
But it will also illuminate gloomy winter days.

A nice counterpart to Tommy Girl - and for my feeling unisex.

Since one is pleasantly uncomplicated, it is well suited as a gift fragrance.

A spring fresh day scent and a pleasant companion.

Drawer find.
This one was again such a present, which I got for my birthday or for Christmas - I don't remember exactly. And what happens with such gifts? They disappear, you know it, forever in the drawer, in the cellar or in the attic, because you simply have no use for them. This was also the case with the classic "Tommy". If I got it sometime in 2017, it immediately disappeared in the desk drawer and reappeared last December when I was tidying it up (sometime you do that). In the deepest winter he really didn't inspire me, but the last days, which were so spring-like, he knew how to unfold his potential - just as naturally today.

"Tommy" begins with a fruit explosion, in which it is difficult to smell out individual fruits in a targeted manner. I definitely hear the grapefruit. I can't say exactly whether it's also apple, bergamot or cranberry. The mint on the other hand is not to be over-smell, as it is present during the whole scent and gives the fruit cocktail a pleasant freshness, as one knows it from it. Ambroxan is also noticeable, but only very discreetly, just the way I like it. But it could also be possible that it is not ambroxane at all but lavender. This would explain the sharp note - even if it is only very subtle. Whether it is ambroxane or lavender is irrelevant. What is important is that the contrasting sharpness or herbaceousness is well done.

With the careful spiciness, the minty freshness and the not too sweet fruit combination, the result is a very timeless composition that can be worn anywhere and anytime. The durability is okay, the sillage is rather close to the skin, but still so that at least I can perceive the scent. Whether my environment has any of this is not important for me. And isn't it an advantage in midsummer to have a fresh scent that doesn't sting in the nose of others? After all, it's precisely that time of year when the heat quickly crosses the line between "bearable" and "unbearable" when it comes to perfume.

Price performance ratio top!
I never thought that fragrance was so good! So far I haven't paid any attention to Tommy in the perfumery, thought it would be such a mainstream fragrance as the Bruno Banani...
Yesterday I tested this because of -30% discount simply out of boredom, see there:
A fragrance to my taste!

Tommy Cologne starts with a lot of bergamot and mint, this combination is simply successful.
After a while it becomes more fruity, but still fresh and never sweet, at the end a bit woody, but still very pleasant.
And the small bottle looks very noble.

The shelf life is fully okay, and the price even more so! 50ml for just 30€, and I was amazed that I could smell the scent even from my wrist when walking without wind, strong scents like Ultra Male and J.Homme can't!
Although the fragrance has been on the market for 24 years, it looks like a modern, young fragrance to me. The 24 years just don't fit Tommy!

Conclusion:
A really beautiful fragrance, unisex suitable, with fruity accents and with good durability & sillage.
Very reasonable price, 30ml for 19,90.
Buy!

Simple and pleasant
The first thing you can notice is a very intense refreshing greenish note, which brings a fine, very light aquatic softness and is due to the mint.

At the same time, the mint is accompanied by a fine citric and very subtle herbaceous nuance, which in my opinion is responsible for the top note getting a pleasant light aura and coming from the bergamot
These two notes are enveloped in a beautiful fruity, slightly sweetish note, with very fine acidic accents, and the top note is invigorating and comes from the grapefruit.

These 3 notes are accompanied by a fine Mediterranean note, which gives the top note a delicate creamy maritime touch and is due to the lavender.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

In the heart note, the mint is much more dimmed, but still perceptible in delicate features and combines with a very fresh sweet fruit, which reminds me a little of a yellow apple and gives the fragrance a simple, but pleasant masculinity.

At the same time, the yellow apple I suspect is enveloped in another fruity shade of red currant, which in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the heart note gets something tangible and I didn't come across cranberry at all
These two notes are enveloped by a fine, almost transparent rosy hint, which lends the fragrance something light and airy and I suspect the Bulgarian rose here.

The heart note is noticeable 3 hours on my skin before the base unfolds.

In the base, a very fine floral note can be perceived, which also brings a delicate wooden tone, and I have typed on jasmine and lotus and until now cotton blossom (according to Internet information, this is supposed to remind me of various clean and powdery musk scents) was unknown to me
The basis is wonderfully rounded off by a light warming spicy and quite discreet creamy nuance, which provides for a beautiful conclusion and I have here rather sandalwood, instead of amber suspected.

In total, the fragrance lasts 6 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is designed from the outset to be perceived well at half an arm's length and this is maintained for 2.5 hours before it is reduced in leisurely steps until the fragrance finally completely disappears.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Zirkeltanz" for the vintage miniature.

Versatile fruity fragrance
This is an exceptional fragrance that is dirt cheap but performs like a £40+ cologne.

It is fruity and fresh, and can be worn any time of the year. In the winter it feels Christmassy and the apple and floral notes really shine. In the summer the citrus notes feel very summery and work well in the heat.

The longevity is about 7-10 hours and it projects very well for the first 3-4 hours. Not only that but it is a very enjoyable scent throughout the day. Every bloke should have a bottle of this!

Young and cheerful...
that´s how I always feel when wearing Tommy.
This simply cannot be bad, which is why Tommy is among my favourite fragrances. I like the enjoyable and differenciated sequence of fruity notes.
Tommy smells distinctively, lasts long on the skin and doesn´t appear to be intrusively. It sure is a fragrance which can be used on an every day basis.
Tommy starts with citrus notes in terms of Bergamot and Grapefruit which are smoothed nicely by some hints of mint. Afterwards the apple appear; these fruity notes remain and are wrapped beautifully by the other notes.

I used it back in the '90s, It has a fresh and citrus entry, very pungent but pleasant, with hints of fresh mint, the best opening notes.

A modern uplifting, fresh, clean, feel-good fragrance! Far more than a nostalgia scent, happiness in a bottle, lasts very well on clothing.

Ahhh the smell of jeans and a white cotton T-shirt - apple, mint, cranberry + other. A.k.a. Vicks VapoRub. Time travel in a bottle.
