This is pretty much exactly the same as the original, the only slight difference is there is a tiny bit less ambroxan in this version, but it is a minuscule amount I would say. Mixed very well with the ISO E in "molecule 01"
This is a great fragrance for fall winter or spring. first five minutes is a sharp + bright lavender, I could see some people thinking it is too bright and somewhat harsh during first 5 minutes, especially if worn around summer time --fortunately after 5 minutes the sharpness goes away completely + it evolves into a soapy, creamy, + musky/woody lavender, smelling like a good quality shaving cream / aftershave. Personally I love the smell of shaving cream (rive gauche has been a holy grail for years) and I love this one. It bears slight resemblance to platinum egoiste, just somewhere in the base of it... the top end / detail resembles more of a soapy, purple foamy shaving soap vibe rather than the bitter green + herbal/ complex woody musk of platinum Egoiste. This one is very simplistic but it has such a charm , it really is one that goes from one thing and gets exponentially better during the first hour, very much so, to the point it kind of blows my mind
A great rich, earthy and woody fragrance that is easy to wear. The fig adding just the right amount of sweetness to the composition. I have no knowledge of how the original smells, but this is good. A classy smell that deserves to be noticed.
Absolutely beautiful fragrance. A soft vanilla with the citrus stopping it being too sweet. The almond smell is there, but not too strong. I ordered the 3ml oil to try and have now ordered a 30ml spray as I love it so much!
