Ten years after - an old Dior scent comes alive
I bought and use Aguas Masculinas - N°3 Seducción Magnética by Victorio & Lucchino almost since one year ago and like it very much. A couple of Parfumo pals, Elysium and Darkbeat, have it and praise it a lot as well. Someone close to me bought it recently and became an addict to it. Today I spent quite some time discussing this fragrance with three Parfumo colleagues. All of us had similar thoughts about the Victorio & Lucchino EDC.
I claimed from the start that Aguas Masculinas - N°3 was very similar to an unfortunately discontinued Dior gem, the Homme Cologne from 2007 (no! no! no!... forget the lemony version from 2013).
Are they really similar? Can this unexpensive gem make me forget the almost market vanished Dior Homme Cologne from 2007?

Opening and Heart - both open with very nice citrus, some cardamom and very heavy lipsticky iris.
Bottom and drydown - both develop reasonably heavy vetiver and patchouli notes with cocoa and resinous accords
The top, heart and bottom have very similar blending with similar notes. Seducción Magnética does not seem to be behind Dior's 2007 EDC in what concerns quality and performance as well.

Let's look at some objective rating. How does Seducción Magnética (V) and Homme Cologne 2007 (D) compare with each other through scoring:
______________________(V)___________(D)
Scent opening............8.0.................8.0
Scent Dry Down.........9.0.................9.0
Longevity (h) ..............6.0.................7.0 (V: 5h with 3 sprays; D: 6h with 3 sprays)
Sillage (ft)....................6.0.................6.5 (V: 4~5 ft sillage /1h projection; D: 5 ft /1.5h)
Versatility....................9.0.................9.0 (both above average for fresh EDC fragrances)
Usability......................9.0.................9.0 (Literally everywhere except cold outdoors)
Compliments..............8.0.................8.0 (Both scents attract compliments)
Uniqueness.................7.5.................8.5 (V may be considered a clone of D, and both of Dior Homme 2005)
Quality.........................8.5.................9.5 (quite high in both cases)
Presentation...............7.0.................9.0 (a matter of opinion)
Price...........................10.0.................6.0 (V: €10 /150ml; D: €100 /100ml)
______________________(V)___________(D)
Average:................8.00/10.0.........8,15/10.0
between 7 and 8 => above average;
between 8 and 9 => recommended;
equal or bigger than 9 => don't miss it;

Opinion on this match:
Both fragrances are very similar, both are very good and provide a similar satisfaction. We are in presence of EDCs, so naturally, the performance is not so high as in similar EDTs. Both are highly versatile perfumes. Value for money is quite low for the Dior fragrance and quite high for the Victorio & Lucchino EDC. The final choice only depends on your purse, and if you are lucky enough to find a sample of Dior's 2007 fragrance on sale anywhere. The Dior bottle is very nice and does make a difference.
Recommended? I recommend both fragrances but pose that question to your wallet first as the Dior fragrance costs at least 10X more.
Is blind buy worthy? Yes for the Victorio & Lucchino EDC as it costs €10.0!.
Final conclusion: You love Dior EDC 2007 but are not able to purchase it due to sheer unavailability... Well, Aguas Masculinas - N°3 Seducción Magnética by Victorio & Lucchino does totally the job, it's inexpensive and easy to find.

A Lush Lipstick for Fearless Gentlemen
Just like the old metaphor that "blue is for boys and pink is for girls" that could easily have been extended to perfume by saying, "woods are for boys and florals are for girls." The only two flowers seen widely in masculine fragrances were lavender, which is more aromatic than floral, and rose, with the latter being sure to be wrapped in other more manly notes, oud primarily. With the release in 2005 of Dior Homme that simple thinking was boldly broken with a floral fragrance marketed to men, which featured a different floral as its focal point: iris, ot better orris root. Aguas Masculinas N°3 Seducción Magnética is following that way and is all about lush orris root.

It is a men's gourmand fragrance, one of those scents that you either love or hate it. Since the whole V&L collection was sold online for a ridiculous price of nearly 10€ each, I blindly bought all of them. When I initially sprayed this on, I felt like I had been digging through my grandmother's pocketbook. I got a lot of different notes, and it smells very feminine, however, neither too sweet nor cloying.
Before challenging the men trying V&L Aguas Masculinas N°3, Seducción Magnética starts with something familiar by using a combination of bergamot, grapefruit, and spearmint. The latter accentuates the more stringent aspects of the citrus fruits and sets the table for the orris in the heart. The head is fresh with velvety citrus edges.

Although its green citrus outflow could throw off with the start of freshwater, the composition becomes extravagant as it advances towards the middle notes. When the orris arrives, it still could have retained a bit of a "too clean" feel to it. There is a gentle touch of cardamon and ginger to make it a little huskier. You have to stop and pay attention to pick both of those notes up, but they turn the orris into something less easily identifiable as a full-on floral accord. The heart is chocolaty, gourmand, buttery, and glowing as the best amber. This orris-cacao-amber accord is the overall predominant aroma.

In the base, it returns the wearer to familiar territory; the finish is woody and oriental with great benzoin, vetiver, and modern patchouli. The leathery accord created by the blend is slightly noticeable and mild as a suede. Instead, the vetiver dominates the scene. Anyhow, it is kept on the lighter side, so it doesn't obliterate the floral core, and it meshes very nicely with the orris.

Quite possibly one of the most magnificent cheap fragrances I have ever smelled, closely akin, and likely inspired to Dior Homme, the orris opening up to the cocoa dry-down is very captivating. I am a sucker for iris, whether it is considered feminine or not, I have always adored the smell and love wearing it. Ever since I was a child, I would sneak into my mother's make-up stash and sniff her lipstick because of that iris smell, I've always loved it. I wish the iris stuck with the life of this fragrance, but it doesn't. It does stick around quite a while, though, about 1-2 hours. After that, it's all cocoa, and it smells fantastic, not too sweet, not cloying at all. Just the right amount, I would say that this is the definition of class and elegance. It is recommended for the crisp, cold, and misty season, and fall is the perfect match, very versatile for both leisure and business days and evening or night outs. I see dudes, buddies, as well as daddies wearing it.

An oriental and versatile cologne water
Well to be honest, I think it's a very good cologne water, and I say water, because it does not have a spectacular duration, but it is not so bad for what it costs. I have tried Acqua di Parma or Etro perfumes that are worth 10 times more, and do not think that the duration is much longer, obviously the quality is noticeable, but for € 10, what do you want?

I find more similarity with Dior Homme Intense (DHI) than with Valentino Uomo (VO). With VO he only shares the bergamot and the cedar, but it is true that it can look like that dusty air, which both have, but little else. VO is much more creamy and chocolate, with that touch of hazelnut so characteristic, and that here you will not see. With DHI it shares Iris, cedar and vetiver, besides being the predominant notes of this perfume, the iris is the key note of DHI, hence it finds more resemblance, because both contain that beautiful and characteristic powdered iris, which brings them closer , but apart from that, they are aromas that take different paths. While DHI is elegance and sophistication, with that air of French makeup, Seducción Magnética emphasizes the citrus and spicy notes, to take it to softer and lighter courses, without losing its oriental soul. In short, a nice oriental aroma, woody, spicy and sweet, with a very pleasant powdery iris tone.

Obviously for the price you can not expect a spectacular performance, but it is not as bad as they paint it, I see it of decent duration and soft wake, perfect to feel well perfumed after a bath, or to go for a walk without major complications.

It is a pleasant perfume to use during the day, at any time of the year without problems, for its softness I do not see it very nocturnal, but nobody says when you should use it, so, use it when it pleases you.

I see it a highly recommended perfume for someone looking for a perfume after the shower, or, a delicate aroma that does not attract much attention, or, a fragrance to walk around the house perfumed without shrillness, things like that are perfect for these waters Male Victorio & Lucchino. If you are looking for a powerful and lasting perfume, do not approach this, because it will not satisfy you.

Sorry for my bad english.
