About this deal

The opening is a sweet blast of neroli and pineapple, the last one reminding me most of Lapidus pour Homme, the former reminding me of Nikos, but also oddly of the as-yet-created Maison Francis Kurkdjian APOM pour Homme (2009).Entering the club with this will make the concurrently-released Paco Rabanne 1 Million (2008) feel like it came off the dollar menu at McDonald's, while those wanting a classier and more-balanced take on this idea should spring for the MFK. Please refer to the ingredient list on the product package you receive for the most up to date list of ingredients.

Now back in the lab in the morning it was time to capture and document all the details of the scent experiment.As for the base, this is sweet tonka, chocolaty patchouli, a dirty musk, and a slightly woody rounded amber. MyOrigines offers you a wide range of luxury perfumes, rare perfumes, and also cheap perfumes available on the internet. The patchouli's earthiness begins to wander, along with a bit of a woody bite from teak, all dominated by amber. This review bases upon a 100ml ( batch code 17i17 from Sep 2017) backup bottle I own since November 2018.

From the immediate spray, the telltale Ted Lapidus DNA that is evident in Pour Homme and Pour Lui sings with a swirl of grapes, pineapples, neroli, and vanilla. It's funny how Gwen Stefani's "Yummy" from the Great Escape album started playing as the top notes dances around me in a frenzy. I mean come on, Ted Lapidus was a once-prominent designer couture house that like so many, was converted into little more than a licensed badge for perfume and accessory makers looking to get into the game after the maison itself entered a twilight fugue.The sillage and projection were monstrous for the older batch, mediocre for the recent one, though Altamir gets cloying quickly with a heavy hand. The so joyful walk to the perfumeries to sniff new fragrances fell away little by little and thus it came certainly to several blind purchases in our so curious community. The weather on the other hand presented itself in large parts of Germany from the best side and thus light, fresh fragrances were in demand. Since he had retired to the Côte d'Azur in the mid-1990s, he had been experimenting with new fragrance creations here in his small, private perfume laboratory, more for his own pleasure and for the fun of it.

All in all, however, a noble fragrance, which you can also wear well in the evening, but also like its twin in nightlife. Anyway, slowly but surely a skin-near oasis of well-being is developing, which inspires to dream of warm, Mediterranean evenings along a coast.

Fragrance Notes: Top notes are Neroli, Pineapple Leaf and Bergamot; middle notes are Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Cyclamen; base notes are Tonka Bean, Amber, Patchouli, Musk, Teak Wood and Vetiver.
