Pure Shot opens with a very pleasant mint accompanied by a subtle sweetness. The mint is not as spicy as those in, for exemple, toothpaste. It gives a fresh aroma effortlessly.
Towards the drydown I can smell patchouli, pepper and some woodsiness along with the mint. But the whole composition is well blended and none is overpowering. It's a casual aromatic fragrance with a certain attitude. The spiciness helps lift the scent up without irritating. I feel very refreshed while wearing it.
After 7 hours the scent is still there. But the sillage is very close along the wearing. I personally consider it a good option as a fresh mint fragrance even for girls. That said, I have to admit it's not as surprising as its cousins from the same house. But still, try it blind, it's actually a lovely fragrance for summer.
Elements of fresh, clean and dirty, all at the same time in the opening. Reminds me of 80's classics like Kouros in that respect, like it has that animalic, sweaty smell mixed with industrial soap. Also has some laundry musk to it, but still a little dirty, like a clean towel left to dry outside in the wind on the clothesline.
I get good performance for projection and longevity. Lasts 6-8 hours.
I cannot speak for the longevity of this fragrance as I just now received my sample in the mail. At first spray, this juice has a horrible smell similar to a cologne/perfume a child would receive in a toy makeup kit from the 1970's.
Luckily, I only have a sample.
Gross, nasty, sickening opening.
It also smells like someone spilled cologne in an antique wooden drawer 40 years ago.
There is a lot of hate for this fragrance and I believe it's just because it carries the name and bottle look of a very unique characteristic fragrance but it has nothing to do with it!
The opening of this fragrance is a very green minty smell along with fresh and tart fruity scent that feels kind of like citruses. mint has a very green and herbal feeling here which is very lovely.
In the mid mint goes in the background and I can still smell that fresh, tart and slightly sweet fruity scent but now some patchouli joins in. patchouli here has no earthy aroma but I can definitely feel the damp aura of it. it's a very transparent and kind of green take of patchouli with watery damp feeling but not earthy at all.
The base of the fragrance is a fresh fruity (tart and sweet at the same time) scent with very bright woods and extremely soft floral note that smells very pleasant and remind me of something that I've smelled before but just can't remember what it was!
The base of the fragrance in my opinion is the best part of it.
Projection is average and longevity is around 4 hours on the skin.
Nothing new or special but solid fresh scent.
