Hecutsa's Perfume Reviews
Not what I was hoping for...
Im very disappointed that this fragrance just doesn't work on my skin. I get the complete opposite from what everyone else is describing. I get no creaminess, no cherry, very little sweetness. I was hoping for something a little more dense and rich smelling, along the line of Lost Cherry or Moonlight in Heaven but for me all I can smell is very heady white florals. I get a very hallow almond note in the opening but this fades away very quickly for me. 10-15 mins I'm left with a musky and very feminine white floral scent that remind me of Tom Ford's Metallique fragrance. It isn't a bad scent at all, just is very feminine in my opinion. The bottle is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm actually debating this fragrance just for the bottle! lol
Wow! This fragrance is actually really good! Definitely not what I was expecting but I'm happy about that. Very modern and not your average designer spring/summer fragrance. Where most are all citrus and aquatic, This cologne is floral and woodsy. This one really reminds me of Dior Homme, but not in smell rather in genre. The more floral, soapy and woodsy with be a nice change and make you standout from all the other heavy citrus and aquatics this summer. Like Dior Homme this one opens with a pungent almost medical citrus smell, I'm assuming from the bergamot but that dissipates in seconds and the florals takeover. The Heliotrope is centerstage in the fragrance and again like Dior Homme gives a really nice soapy/powdery scent with a little little spice from the rosemary I'm guessing. From there the scent remains this soft clean floral with a warm base and the scent stays this way for most of the duration until maybe around the 4 hour mark and then the woods and patchouli completely takes over and finish off the night. And honestly the woods is really what made me a fan of this fragrance. The warm cypress with the patchouli gives this a animalic, balsamic aroma that almost comes off as a cleaner more musky Oud. This fragrance is label a cologne but the opening is pretty wide and comes off more like a edt but once it dries down it becomes very soft which I'm sure others will confuse the performance with being weak but I think this is a A+ fragrance from the house of Gucci and another one of those fragrances pushing the boundaries and starting conversation of what men fragrance can be just like Gucci Guilty Absolute, this one belongs in my collection.
