The hope of specialness
The hope of speciality is something that everyone who orders from Dua has a little bit. I had read a lot about the fragrance and also many YouTubers discussed the Matrix as an excellent summer scent. A very good copy of Shooting Stars - Nio, (whom I don't know) is said to be the Matrix. So don't hesitate and order it, because the résumé was also very positive.
I have now tested the fragrance for a few days and I am trying to share my subjective experiences with you.
The scent starts very cologne-like, citric and spicy, so it's definitely a rather fresh summery scent. Neroli and bergamot are clearly noticeable here. After 10-20 minutes cedar, amber and especially the woods shimmer out. A similar concept as with the well-known Artisan Pure by John Varvatos. First fresh in the drydown then light and pleasant woods. The Matrix, however, as already mentioned above, brings much more Neroli and Amber and also the woods are not so reserved. If this is positive now, every nose has to decide for itself.
The fragrance somehow reminds me of a mixture of Artisan Pure, Mercedes Benz Cologne and Terre d'Hermès. Three fragrances that I like to combine, but at least in the Matrix, they seem too cluttered. For experienced noses it's certainly a feast to smell out and define the nuances. But especially in summer I like it simple and fresh. But Matrix can be very challenging and even exhausting. But I'm looking forward to the summer to use it there and see if I like it more.

Conclusion:
For about 200€ per 100 ml Dua is not a cheap dupehouse. If you are still looking for the right fragrance for the summer and want to save your wallet, you should rather go for Mercedes Benz Cologne, Artisan Pure or Rakaan, which are not much worse/different than the Matrix. Basically still a more solid and somewhat spicy summer scent than the above mentioned ones. Sillage and durability are in the middle range for a summer scent. (5-6 hours) The fragrance will probably be a speciality for me but not anymore.

I hope I could give you a little insight into my experiences with the fragrance. We sniff..
