Went to a store today to sample some frags, here are a couple of impressions:
>Le Beau Le Parfum
Can't believe I was considering buying this at some point, it's just smells too cloying and synthetic to me now. Maybe the tester is from a bad batch, really liked it the first time.
>Versace Pour Homme
This gets recommended a lot, but there's a note in here that just doesn't agree with my nose. Sampled it multiple times at this point, doubt I'll ever take a bottle home.
>Bvlgari Man Rain Essence
New release, so this was the first time I sampled it, but I could barely smell anything, did anyone else found this to be weak as well?
>Bvlgari Man Glacial Essence
This one I liked though, very fresh and true to it's name. Decided that this is going to be one of the frags I try on my skin and I'm liking the dry down as well. Good longevity too, might pick this up for the summer.
>1 Million Lucky
Pretty good, might be my favorite from Paco Rabanne so far, I'm trying this on my skin the next time I visit a store.
>Montblanc Legend Spirit
Kinda weird, but in a pleasant way. Didn't really stand out to me, wouldn't consider getting it after the first impression.
>Y Eau de Parfum
Not bad at all, but smells way too generic for me. Zero standout factor, but probably a safe gift. I would wear it if somebody gave me a bottle.
>Acqua di Giò Eau de Parfum
Not a fan, just doesn't do it for. My least favorite from the line.
>Acqua di Giò Profondo
Wanted an even match for Glacial Essence, so I sprayed this on my other wrist. Both by Morillas, both released in 2020, both warm weather frags. Always liked this one in the store, but now that I had a test run, I'm not impressed. Dry down is much more synthetic than I would have liked, and it didn't even last long. Glacial Essence won easily, no wonder it's more expensive.
