Although I do not quite like aquatic perfumes, i have to say that this took my attention and. It is an aquatic but not in the way of versace pour homme. I must add that this ia a more woody than aquatic fragrance. I can smell apples, woods and spices. On top of that, there is a slight rose note, i don’t know if the rose and wood gives something from the smell of rose, but this is what makes this fragrance quite nice for me. The apple, woods, rose and spices make this fragrance very nice, woody, spicy and slightly salty and sweet. I read some reviews about it in the past but never tried it until today. In comparison with other aquatic fragrances, this together with the aqva and aqva marine from bvlgari, are on my top list. I never liked aqua di gio, allure homme sport although it is nice, and other similar perfumes. Eau fraiche is not something i smelled on a man before, not a commercial in CY and this is what i like. Believe that for an aquatic fragrance, the longevity and proximity/silage are very good. The fragrance gets into its maximum performance and gives you what really is 30 minutes after the application so we have to give it some time. I love the rosewood, spices, herbs and the touch of apple and rose although they are not listed in the ingredients.
Ladies today i have to tell you something, i proudly announce that i am a Moschino addict, so the day i saw this one on sale I bought it on impulse without even sniffing it.
The first impression you have about this scent is that it sends to your nose a beautiful
fruity,refreshing summer like feeling with a slight note of citrus and a lovely surprise in the dry-down.
The first puff left me the impression of a freshly squeezed orange and a slight note of grapefruit. The feeling it lets behind reminds me of a beautiful summer morning! It’s quite refreshing and cheery. There was even a point when i wondered if it will be like Happy by Clinique ? … but later i found out that it’s nothing similar with that.
Later when the citrus note cool down i could smell a hint of a red-current note. and a slight note far in the distance of a flower note, Something like Roses. This is quite different. And halfway towards the dry down you can smell a soft and powdery note, that make the fruity notes to calm down and settle.
This scent in the dry-down brings a powdery soft and very yummy fruity floral that is being embraced by cedar, musk and a hint of pepper notes. It’s a very yummy and wonderfully cheery sunny summer scent, yet it’s also very comforting and relaxing.
To my nose it’s not like Happy by Clinique – Happy is far more linear whereas this fragrance is going through several stages of development that are fun to puff and sniff! It’s also nothing like another orange ‘suspect’ that I own and love, Liberte by Cacharel — Liberte has patchouli & sandalwood notes that give it a smokey sensation.
Overall this is a fun to wear and a real happy scent for those ‘pick-me-up moments’. Sniff before purchase it is a must.
