Men’s Summer Flankers Mini Reviews Part 1

This is the first batch of mini reviews for this years summer flankers. More to come!

vigssGivenchy Very Irresistible Summer Sorbet; Citrus, Patchouli, and Chocolate with a light Mint – like in the original Men’s fragrance. Also an odd blueberry note. And the “dirty feet” Vanilla from Gaultier2.

isseysIssey Miyake L’Eau d’Ete; Menthol with a very quiet, short lived Chocolatey note. Then to the sharp, fresh aromatic and light wood notes from L’Eau d’Issey. Worth wearing if you like the original but find it too much for summer.

cksummerCk Summer; This years stronger citrus version is Tangerine with sharp Grapefruit and a ton of Melon, then Vanilla with a citrus soapy Musk. Very bright. Very loud. Pleasant enough.

ckheatCk In2U Heat; Plastic Amber with Satsumas, to something that gives the sensation of smelling but actually doesn’t really smell at all. Bewildering. Then a light lemony accord lasts for a while before vanishing.

212iceCarolina Herrera 212 on Ice; Abrasive citrus and Citronella, the essential oil that is used as mosquito repellant. More lemon-y than the feminine on top of a thick Cedar note.
