Thirdman is a fragrance line dedicated to featuring the brilliance of the Eau de Cologne style of scent – minimalist compositions where fresh, light citrus and spices are the focus. Historically, Eau de Cologne is a splash-style, lemon and orange, zesty citrus refresher, applied liberally and often. Thirdman has taken this citrusy profile and expanded it to include a host of aromatic notes…
A sparkling, fresh citrus scent. Nothing groundbreaking or unique, but a quality fragrance. Wears close to the skin and lasts a reasonable 4 - 5 hours, which is expected of an Eau de Cologne formulation.
Is this the same as Eau Nomade? Because that's what the decant label says. It's a sweetish, spiced orange. Further on the masculine side of the unisex spectrum. I don't enjoy unisex scents as much as I did before my pregnancy, so I gave this one to my husband. It's nice on him but not my favorite. I agree there is a cheapish vibe to it, a sort of chemical undertone. And it is rather fleeting, as are many citrus scents.
Very good lasting life though it can only be noticed subtly. This scent is great to wear (esp for me in the gym or rehearsal) but I wouldn't buy it because of the synthetic tone underneath the sparkly blood orange. I'd recommend if you don't have sensitive skin.
Disappointing - cardamom is one of my favorite notes. I get a LOT of ginger and not much cardamom at all. Opening reminds me of the opening of Hermes Jardin d Mousson but not so wet.
The citrus is there but feels synthetic to me. Definite fizz and sparkle though; the overall effect is like mixing gingerale and Fanta. Not bad but not what I was expecting.
This fragrance is just ok, it is not my favourite with my body chemistry. I get a lot of muted, almost stale smelling, cardamom, but none of the blood orange. It has good sillage and decent longevity, lasting around six hours on one spray.
