Latest Reviews of Deep Blue Essence

This is every woody-spicy aquatic. It is facelessly modern and devoid of any originality or merit. It is Gio, it is Zegna, Sung, Boss, and Bahama's prior works all revisited and poorly re-imagined, like recreating a bad field trip in your head and making the memory worse with hazy or falsified details. It is the kind of scent which will be purchased by men(?) who walk into department stores and perfume outlets and, instead of sampling anything, simply asks, "What sells the best here?" and buys it (very common at places like Perfumania). He will invariably over-apply and later lash out at girls for not liking him.

I wish this style would die out, but it's so cheap to manufacture and so entrenched in the culture of urbanites without natural scent references that it's not likely to happen in the foreseeable future.

This Deep Blue Essence is half Hugo Boss Dark Blue and half oceanic. It's cool and crisp, a bit ozonic and marine, and some woods. The first accord is citrus and coniferous and this lasts about five minutes until the ozonic and marine notes start setting in. These aquatics fit in fairly well with the citrus and cedar, but there is an off-note in the background that I ascribe to a rampant violet note, which I always dislike. Of course with so many ozonic and marine accords, the main accord gives off a lot of synthetic vibes, The dry down is entirely wood except for the remnants of marine notes that still remain. If they had left out that violet note I would have voted a neutral.

I'm wondering if Weil thinks that adding both ozonics and marine notes to a Dark Blue derivative sixteen years after Dark Blue was introduced will make Deep Blue Essence appropriate for the twenty-first century?
