Absolute insider tip
I was looking for a fragrance that I could wear at a late hour in the gym without my wife feeling disturbed by a too pungent or strong scent when I get into bed with her at 11:00 p.m. What scents are left? Expensive and quickly evaporating Acqua die Parmas, any niche fresh or clean scents? The occasion would probably be far too banal and a total waste of time for that.

I was thinking about getting some Dior Homme cologne. It's a beautiful fragrance, but every spray is absolutely painful because of the cost, because the spray has a high volume. At the end of the day I thought: "If you buy cheap, you buy 2 times". So it became DHC.
But for the gym it was much too bad for me and when Vibrant Leather Summer was available for 14,99€ (120ml) I thought I would just hit it. You can't do much wrong with this price
The word clone, in my opinion, is used too often and inappropriately. A clone would be for me something that is really hardly distinguishable and only visible with a magnifying glass. The scent is not a clone, for that it is far too far away, also because of the ginger. But he speaks the same language and has the same scent character. Very airy and soft. Citrusy, but not pungent, but gently lying in the air like a soft pillow. A refreshing touch, would perhaps be a good description. I am surprised that other fragrance manufacturers have not yet picked up on this style in their own revised interpretation with slightly modified ingredients.

The fragrance is strongly inspired by DHC, but not a clone. To be honest, Dior is better and more valuable than the VLS everywhere, except in performance (yes, the Zara water is more durable). However, these differences in quality can only be noticed by someone who is a passionate fragrance lover. The fragrance is therefore VERY recommendable. The low price is not noticeable in any way. I often read about Zara that the fragrances have something like a synthetic basic DNA. I can't subscribe to this, because I have never been able to smell this DNA anywhere and with this fragrance with 100% certainty not at all. I suspect that because of the low price, many people's subconscious might be playing a trick on them and looking for reasons why cheap must be bad. I also feel more comfortable wearing DHC, as the bottle is more elegant, the fragrance more expensive and Dior is the better brand. But you also have to look at value for money. And the differences are really marginal. Here the "cheap" cologne literally outstrips the expensive. Here you should call a spade a spade and evaluate it fairly. In a "blind tasting", the result would probably have been 50:50.

I can promise that the life span of the blue Acqua di Parma's is many times less than that of Vibrant Leather Summer. Sprayed on clothes you can smell the scent all day long
