Summary: Awesome bottle. The end. No, seriously. What to say about Del Mar. Well.. having tried the original Baldessarini, and owning Ambre, I find myself wondering wtf. Here we have the Baldessarini brand from Hugo; it's less sythetic, it's more sophisticated, and it had a highly credible image in my mind after having tried both the others. Baldessarini is like the niche part of Hugo Boss, but Del Mar is totally Hugo Boss.
Summary: Chrome???? Did anybody say Chrome????? The color of the juice reminds me of Chrome, the bottle reminds me of Chrome, is this just a copy of Chrome? If it is, actually is an improvement over Chrome. More masculine, better sillage and logevity than Chrome, and in few words: This is another aquatic, but not "just another aquatic", this has better quality and smells better than the rest of the aquatics there in the market.
Summary: Very masculine. A hint of that classic after shave smell. It's got a nice balance of sweet and warm, making it both mature but still energetic, and the hint of aquatic gives it a modern twist. Del Mar is everyday wear for the mature man, or occassional wear for the younger man in a mature setting.
Summary: I found this to be a totally inoffensive but ultimately boring fragrance, with lamentable sillage and suspect longevity to boot. One of its few redeeming features is its beautifully heavy lead crystal-like bottle, which by the way might also be deemed pretentious given the averageness of the scent inside. Not recommended.
Summary: this is one i thought sucked at first.boring same blue aquatic,but after awhile of using,its one of the best blues ,i think.gets more distinct and pleasant with use.i used mine up,but have not re-upped.there are so many other del mars to sample!
Summary: Del Mar Baldessarini is meant to evoke the more mature man exploring the world’s oceans and holiday destinations. Does it deliver on that? The answer in mind is sort of. Despite the ‘oceans’ reference, it’s not at all what I would call an aquatic style of fragrance (a good thing in my opinion – far too many of these out there already!). It’s still fresh, but slightly woody and a little bit spicy.
Summary: Initial notes are sandalwood, fruit, salty ocean air, and rather dry. My initial impression is very, very similar to Dunhill Pure. Initially more dry, then as it dries it becomes much more sweet - sweeter even than Pure. It may take some getting used to; it's very sweet, I hate to say it, but dries down like pink bubblegum. I see it as duplicative of the aforementioned fragrance in my wardrobe.
Summary: Casual, mature, sophisticated. Scent that emulates sea, coast, sea shells. I see many negative reviews here. Mayhaps most of reviewers were would prefer Marbella edition of the scent, wich I myself consider an upgrade of this one.
