About this deal

I bought it again but,contrary to my expectations,this had nothing to do with the first CHIC frag I'd bought it in 2002. If Chic were released today in a striking but classy bottle and had a proper ad campaign attached to it like Versace, Gucci or Chanel does for their frags I would have no doubt that it would be a hit for the house. The rose petals mixed in with vanilla and orange blossoms are a perfect accompaniment for day time while the musk, sandalwood cozy up at night. His creative spirit, the way he sees life, his work, the elements he surrounds himself with, all endow him with the gift of standing out from the crowd without the slightest pretension.

I like very much this scent because the smell it's not overwhelming and have good sillage and last long. Please read the full reviews and consider your own needs and preferences before making a purchasing decision.In the opening the main notes you'll notice are orange and lemon giving it a cheap aftershave smell with the heavy alcohol. I wasn't expecting much given it's a now lesser known 20 year old fragrance (cost cutting, reformulations etc), however I'm pleasantly surprised, I love the scent and whilst it needs more testing it feels like it's going to perform well and be very versatile. It becomes warmer as it dries down with amber, musk and sandalwood when the citrus starts to settle and slips away in the mid.

For example, some top note citrus scents smell stronger immediately upon application, while a lavender middle note may be sensed after some time from application as the top note evaporates. If the data is transferred to the US, there is a risk that your data can be processed by US authorities, for control and surveillance measures, possibly without legal remedies. I get a watermelon and just a slight hint of pepper in the opening when it dries down a bit the cinnamon and cardamon come out to play. It hangs around for a good 8 hours or so and would definitely work on a woman who enjoys woody scents and sweets. It smells as if I just took a shower and I love to smell that clean, especially when it is warm outside.The atomizer s not so good , some times works fine , but not as satisfying as any fragrance I had tested, Herrera for men has very good and much better atomizer for example, I don't like the cap either, it just cover the atomizer, but doesn't stick at its place , so you can't lift the bottle up .

With Chic, however, I find the cardamom to be more uncomplicated and more wearable; with LNDLH, unfortunately, it quickly triggers a headache in me. I don't really perceive the heart note of pepper and cinnamon, but it's quite possible that these notes fit in here. Although I discovered this late but sure am glad I did because it sits right up there with terre, l eau d'issey and egoiste platinum for me as fixtures in my collection. I love my white florals, but only when they've been composed well, which is quite rare unfortunately. There's a touch of pepper and cardamom, cedar and tonka bean lending some sophistication and Chic has a gentle musky base.It starts off with fruity notes, i mostly get lemon and watermelon (watermelon is stronger than all the fruits here IMO), a bit orange. Somewhat comparable to Chanel Allure Homme in its development (not the smell itself, Allure Homme is more fruity): starts out fresh (watermelon! encantador con las mujeres, este chic actua en el olfato femenino muy muy bien, es una mescla dulce de sandia miel canela y pimienta, me gusta mucho aunque puede empalagar por su dulsura lo recomiendo encaresidamente para quienes quieran atraer al sexo opuesto, a mi me encanta. To those of you who appreciate light fruity frags with a woody base this is most definitely worth a look. For a simple and sophisticated woman, that makes her presence felt in an non imposing way, Chic is really the perfect sent for a pleasant life.
