Fresh; but no Bottle for Me.
I don't think this is Juice. But my nose is still developing on this one. I have to sink my neck into it to really feel it, but my heart is telling me it isn't worth it. It smells good, but that's about it. There are a few other things that CVS sells that smell good. But I'm not running to their cabinets for Fragrances. I wore Polo in the green and gold bottle at around 16-17, so I'm accustomed to a spicer fragrance, with that citrus freshness to it, however, I'm not at that point in my life anymore. There's also a geriatric quality to it that I'm not particularly fond of. I'm at a point in my life where I want to smell mysterious, and Acqua Di Parma has no time for playing Where's Waldo.
My lady seems to like this fragrance, that seems to have one note, and smells how the bottle looks in a way, like a citrus fruit. I'd have expected a goopier oil-ish viscosity but that wasn't received. This is a Spring/Summer scent for me, and even then, one where you're closer to water so your pores can breathe through it. When this one gets sticky I can tell discomfort awaits all of us. I'm not even sure if it's sample worthy in my opinion based on the fact that the nose that made this lived 100 years ago. I feel like the popularity of this fragrance has kept it's Achilles-esque connotation because big actors wore it, which I understand. But I also understand why a Chanel No. 5 will never die, and why this one may see a foreseeable end to its great run.
