Really enjoyable when I first sprayed it on.

Sadly, the dry down is headache inducing and gave me a bad taste in my mouth. It's too bad because it was really promising at the get go.

I returned this to the store.

Divine
Before spraying on Encens Divin, I was a little concerned about how sharp the top notes (pepper and ginger) would be in the opening but as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. The opening was a slightly spicey resinous vanilla that reminded me of Ambre Tigré. Rose notes along with wood and incense followed soon afterwards. After a while, amber and treacle (molasses) notes came into play. A very nice olfactory experience.

Though I did enjoy Ambre Tigré, I would recommend saving your money and purchase Encens Divin instead as this is Ambre Tigré with a lot more depth.

Projection is around 6ft (2m) and is still noticable after 10 hours. Can easily be worn for any occasion professional, leisure and intimate. During my first day of wearing Encens Divin, I received a few unsolicited compliments from co-workers.

Full bottle and signature scent worthy for men or women.

Old World Scent
An opulent scent of leather, resinous labdanum and oud that seems to take me back in time to an ancient market with a leather tannery and an incense shop nearby that is sells oud. A weird experience. Oud Flamboyant is really comforting to wear. As with most Western fragrances, the oud is synthetic but it was definitely satisfying.

Projection was about 6ft (2 meters) for about 6 hours then it backed up to about an arms length for the other 6 hours.

Can be worn for any occasion, day or night and can be worn year-round as well.

Highly Recommended

Signature Scent Worthy
When worn, Gyan is a sexy cloud of resinous smoky patchouli with a sweet jasmine sambac radiating from the center. The patchouli is not that "hippie smelling" patchouli, this is a rich and refined patchouli.

Gyan is a smooth non-cloying fragrance (unless you really over do it) that can be worn anywhere - Black tie events, office, out with friends, or on a date with that special someone. Gyan gets a lot of unsolicited compliments and smells fantastic.

Gyan projects around 2 meters (6ft) and leaves a nice smoky sweet jasmine trail of fragrance in your wake.

As far as I am concerned, this is a year-round fragrance. Hot or cold weather, you will always smell great.

Gender-wise Gyan would smell great on men and women 25+. Younger people that prefer fresh scents will probably not appreciate this as much.

Gyan as well as the rest of the Le Gemme collection can only be purchased at a Bvlgari boutique online or in one of their brick and mortar locations.

Yes the Le Gemme men's line is a little pricey ($310 for 100 ml) but honestly, you are also paying for presentation as well as the amazing juice. The box is very nicely padded. The sleek black bottle is topped with a blue gem. Each Le Gemme fragrance has its own gem color. I have tried each one and all are worth trying out.

Gyan is a solid 10/10

A Tropical Heaven
A heavenly tropical dessert of citrus, mango, jasmine sambac, coconut milk sticky rice and a woody vetiver. I have received many unsolicited compliments while wearing this.

Yes there are other cheaper "tropical" fragrances out there, but this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. The azure refillable bottle comes in a padded, mother of pearl inlaid, compact case. Refills are about $100 cheaper.

On my skin, sillage is within six feet, and longevity is about 10 hours.

It is not cloying, is perfect for Spring or Summer and can be worn for any occasion, day or night.

8.5/10
