Another clone...
Well, it's just a clone / plagiarism of "Chanel Bleu", perhaps closer to the EDP version.

The same citrus opening to which a sweet note is added (something like tonka is out there) and that base between woody and amber / dusty.

Well done, nice, "without ambroxan" (or does not sing as you already know), a bit bland and generic.

Performance similar to that of Chanel.

Small reflection: It is a pity that they discontinue mythical fragrances such as the "Pour Homme" of this firm (fragrance that I have never tried) to survive (we will see how long) a perfume like this, but so are these times, where what is cool is that all of us smell to the same, as if we were a herd. I understand that sales prevail, but I still feel a little sorry.

By the way, the "Pour Homme" that until a few months ago could be achieved for just over € 20 per 100ml, is now around € 180. They are the curious things of this fragrant universe ... XDD

But in summary, that I've rolled up too much:
For just over € 30 per 125ml for which this fragrance can be achieved, he paints the face of the famous and overrated "Bleu de Chanel".

If you like that style, I recommend the test.

Cheap cologne marketed like high luxury niche frag.
Citrus cologne, very musky with a very marked soapy effect, which resembles the classic 4711 (but smelling worse) and in musky appearance, to "Acqua Universalis" by Francis Kurkdjian (of which I am not a fan at all).

Perhaps that of Frederic Malle is somewhat superior than the Kurkdjian, with a little more successful citrus and with the floral notes of Orange Blossom and Neroli, nothing new or more inspired than hundreds of similar fragrances. All with a lot of synthetic musk.

The result is a "cologne" simply "passable", which has really left me feeling of smelling a cheap perfume with a value for money, which falls within the ridiculous and unfortunate. A joke in bad taste since paying for this about € 200 per 100ml, it seems crazy.

The performance may be somewhat superior to direct competition, although it is also nothing spectacular and the sillage is rather low, after the first 30 minutes.

I hope it is a mere coincidence, that the firm Frederic Malle, was recently bought by Estéee Lauder. I insist, I want to think that it is a coincidence that your first release, it came out like this ... ;)

Wow, a well made perfume!!! Stop selling that...
Perhaps one of the best "designer" releases of recent years.

Surrounded by "products of the type" "Hugo", "CH" or "1 Million" (I can continue to infinity ...), aimed, rather, at a teenage audience, this perfume was a pleasant surprise for How different and daring it is.

Its predominant notes are patchouli with cocoa, vetiver and little else. It may have some wood, but the rest are very light notes.

It is a very daring aroma, in the sense that it comes out of the most common of these days, with an earthy touch and above all "different" (YES, that is just the seal of J.P. Gaultier). With a very good duration but a soft sillage rather stuck to the skin (I think that, in this case, it is not a bad thing).

I see it more focused on people close to or over 30 years, since you have to have a certain character to carry it, simply because of the different or "shocking" that can result.

Kokorico, I think he has had a great flaw. It really smells like many components of what it declares, such as classic perfumes, that is, the patchouli smells like patchouli, cocoa with cocoa and even the vetiver, gives it an earthy hue, as it should be. All this, clashes with the perfumes of his time, in which to find a note that smells minimally sharp and decent, it is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Without looking like any masterpiece, but if it seems remarkable, because of what I mentioned before and because unlike many of his time, like 1 Million, Kokorico is balanced in all its phases.

In summary: Gaultier's excellent perfume, which has already been discontinued, I understand that because of its low sales, but hey, "Twilight" was No. 1 in sales and we are alive and so happy. XDD

When Dior clones Chanel.
They have plagiarized, cloned, or as you prefer, the concept of Bleu de Chanel "Parfum".

This is something that Dior (LVMH) has been doing with each launch of its Sauvage line, from the beginning.
See even the magnetic cap, coincidentally with the same bottle color, etc ...

Yes, I know that the magnetic plug is used by other brands, but it was to start using Chanel in Bleu and pum, copy .. Chanel takes out the EDP and pum, copy. Now take out the Parfum and pum ... Is this really the paradise of ​​perfumery, of luxury, that we are trying to sell? I don't know, I think it's pretty crappy.

In the EDT, although the style was identical with that citrus opening, with the darker background, dusty and woody in the Chanel and the ambroxan in Dior, the smell was much more different than in the later flankers. In the EDP they got closer, sweetening the mixture and making it something deeper and less squeaky.

In this Parfum, they get even closer. They have loaded the ambroxan and dries with an indefinite smell, pulling the woody / creamy (sandalwood), just like in the Chanel.

I do distinguish the citrus from the opening, which has lasted about 20 seconds, to go out in the comments, all of this quite poor.

The feeling of quality, I found inferior in the Dior.

The performance, like that of Chanel, is simply unfortunate, although in this case and unlike previous flankers, I think the Dior is losing.

It's not about looking for discretion and all that stuff. This is that, after 5-10 minutes, nobody smells unless you stick your nose to the skin and breathe ... 10 sprays and after 10 minutes, in an elevator, with 3 more people (trustworthy, je,je), nobody smelled it. Of the 3, it is clearly the worst performer.

Poor quality, poor performance...

Come on, honestly, I thought it was an insult to perfumery and a real consumer scam.

Interesting but boring job.
Well surprised by this release.

It does not go anywhere where I imagined, or where I have read in several places, where they say it resembles Sauvage (I hate this), Dylan Blue, etc. This smell nothing like these.

Except for some very unimpressive citrus at the exit (I do not smell the lemon so much, as they comment there), where perhaps I would have liked them to highlight something else, with more definition and presence, the perfume generates a very interesting "aura" of green notes, like laurel, patchouli and vetiver style, very mature and classic cut. All of these notes are on a very light acuatic base.

Escape any kind of sweetness, from tutti fruttis and at least me, I find it very far from current trends.

If it smells closely on skin, it stands out very little and I smell it quite abstract, with little definition and presence, but the issue is that, even after several hours, it generates that aura that I have commented before, very noticeable.

I insist, very classic, mature, even dry. It looks more like a launch of Comme des Garçons than of D&G...

I have two cartons by my side, which I can smell perfectly without getting too close after more than 24 hours of applying.

For now, je,jem , I can say thatI really liked it in this first contacts.
Interesting, although it gives me that I can get bored fast.
