Similar to the original CH Men in the opening with less dirtiness or originality. Starts to remind me of a mix of 10 popular sweet powdery fragrances like 1 Million Lucky. Dont get me wrong, I could absolutely see this being somebodys #1 favorite scent. It can also pull a compliment with ease. It hits many of the marks to be a clean, sweet modern scent that will be enjoyed by many.
Performance is also average. Projection isnt big but does push out a little. Longevity is good for 4-5 hours on me.
Violet leaves and cardamom - an interesting start that is gives additional depth by a whiff of pink peppers.
The drydown adds considerable fruitiness, with pineapples and pears most evident, and some traditions green notes, from a pleasant lavender to a herbal sideline than merged with the top notes.
The base and a chocolate/vanilla ice cream impression, with a cafe-au-lait mixed in. Although this all sounds a bit like a gourmand finale, it is not very rich and intense, and the earlier stages of this composition have little in common with a true gourmand fragrance.
I get moderate sillage, very good projection and eight hours of longevity on my skin.
A spring scent for evenings that is not without some originality, but at certain stages too generic to truly impress. The bottle seems to be taken for the kings boudoir. 2.75/5.
