Summary: This is a perfume you can never go wrong with! To me, this is one of the most pleasant and enjoyable fragrances I've owned; I love the mix of coffee, vetiver (which gives it an interesting woody vibe), citrus, and Tonka. It can be used at any ocassion, in different kinds of weather. Projection isn't great, but longevity is good (about 7-8 hours), and drydown is so delicious - it reminds me of Fahrenheit Absolute a little bit, which is one of the EDTs I've been longing...
Summary: Many people compare this to Rochas man. Although they do share the same vibe, the difference are ROCHAS MAN: Bright/ Burnt Sugary Cappucino ( Cappucino, not coffe. cappucino is creamy) GIVENCHY PLAY INTENSE: Dark/ Black dark chocolate ( not dairy chocolate ) with Coffe flavour. Longevity, Projection, and Sillage are spotty. Sometimes it lasts for 5-6 hours, other times it fades after 90 mins and return back to linger here snd there, also sometimes it never return back.
Summary: Perhaps I need more time to come to appreciate this one, but at the moment I am not overly impressed by it. People mention a coffee note- perhaps a Starbucks vanilla chai late? Certainly not a bold coffee bean. The Tonka is abundant, however. Patchouli and Vetiver as well. I don't hate it; however, it has the same problem for me as Jean Paul Gauthier Le Male. Overly cloying and sweet, too adolescent smelling. I thought this was a unisex fragrance when I smelled it.
Summary: It turns out to be to me agreeable, in the night, with better low temperature, but it can be used in summer, with fewer applications. I do not emphasize the note of coffee, at least in my skin, if the citric one to the pricipio and then something of chocolate with bean tonka. It turns out to be very similar to Kokorico, this one if it has cocoa. Medium projection, good longevity. In the night and dance. Good option.
Summary: An amazing fragrance when it was first released. It has indeed been REFORMULATED sometime between 2011-2012. A mere shadow of its former self. Lacks longevity, sillage, and overall deepness of the original.
