Summary: Strong synthetic hedione-helional-calone opening, which is supposed to be a plastic and somehow disturbing artificial representation of some refreshing/tropical/acquatic accord of melon, white flowers and some herbs (it quite smells of basil to me). Basically some ozonic deodorant with a strong metallic/synthetic feel. It may have been a little "new sensation" back then, but I honestly find it terrible - better say, "wearable" as any supermarket deodorant.
Summary: All in all a nice scent - but throughout the day it just felt as if something was holding it back from being truly great.... After a few hours I was finally able to put my finger on it - IMHO there is a problem with its 'sweetness'. The bulk of its notes give it a refined, grown up personality that, IMHO, has a lot of promise. But the nature of its sweet notes feels like an irresponsible 22 year old who wants nothing more to do with life than go clubbing.
Summary: A truly trite scent - woody reedy artemesia watery thing that has been done hundreds of times - and every single one to no distinction whatsoever. A truly stupid name also, as it has nothing to do with the very pleasant jasmine dominated white floral melange that is Beyond Pardise. A waste of time and money.
Summary: want a bad formulation of Eau de Cartier? So i believe the substance is called helional. It can give a lot of freshness and "cold air" feeling but if balanced right and here it seems to be a bit out of proportions,it is just all over the place and after inhaling it frequently it hurts inside my nose. The melon somewhere at the background is just not convincing.The drydown is a flowery grapefruit + "cheapy-musky" thing.Was this composed in a rush?
Summary: A Unique Interpretation of a Tropical Oasis I think this is a beautiful, unique, and polarizing aquatic fragrance. Not surprised that the reviews are very hot or cold. The aroma is very innovative, much in the same way that Kenzo Pour Homme was innovative in creating a distinctly literal interpretation of the sea, ocean, and coastline.
Summary: Something is a Little Off Here This one is almost pleasant, but there is something a little off here. There was a really harsh bitter note in the very opening, but is settled into something that was very middle of the road. I won't be purchasing even at the great price.
Summary: I love this cologne and I was glad that I was able to find it online. Estee Lauder doesn't carry this product on store shelves anymore. It smells amazing and is very long lasting. Beyond Paradise for men has a lighter, sweet smell to it that I think any adventurous guy wold appreciate. I highly recommend this cologne.
