Summary: Thin and weak [CENTER][/CENTER]At free a weak lime-kumquat opening, a minty coriander note develops with a twinge of cucumber. Later a peasant olive note appers and dominates the base, my favourite phase in the scent's development. A smidgeon of a wood note transiently appears at the end. Poor silage and projection with three hours of longevity on my skin.
Summary: Does anyone still remember the longhaired tennis pro who won the Olympic gold medal, who later mutated into a bald head, who had a few cozy dates with Barbra Streisand, and then got married to Brooke Shields before he finally kidnapped 'our' Steffi (Graf) to Las Vegas? You guessed it! Andre Agassi - the advertising icon for "Aramis Life". We are looking at a nice bottle made of deep blue ridged glass, easy to grasp and with a polished silver sprayer on top.
Summary: Aramis Life – An “unknown”, underrated, and a great value… Aramis Life is clean and fresh fragrance with a “whisper” of spice. Just this morning, I compared the scent to a just showered smell (almost “soapy” – but a good “soapy”). The more reviews I write, it seems that I am fonder of the “clean” fragrances that are “easy on the nose”. My initial reaction to the cologne is that it is somewhere between CK Free, Intense Euphoria, and Diesel (Original Fuel for Life).
Summary: Not bad, but boring. I bought this because I thought it would be a bright, sharp green scent, based on the cucumber and violet leaves that are supposedly in this, but no go. I don't smell any green fresh notes whatsoever. I smell an interesting creamy fruity note in here (kumquat?), which is interesting, but there's nothing else in here to make this an interesting scent.
Summary: Does anyone remember Lauder Metropolis? Back in the 80's it was Estée Lauder's first attempt to create and market a more-expensive Aqua Velva. It was a wonderful fragrance that failed in part because it was a restrained old-school chypre in an era of powerhouse fougères, and in no small part because of a dubious marketing campaign featuring Liza Minelli. With Aramis Life it seems that Estée Lauder have come full circle.
