Summary: c'est un parfum merveilleusement mélangé. Après avoir porté des parfums très lourds pour les quelques dernières semaines ce fut une très frais plaisir. Je me demandais si quelqu'un d'autre a reçu une bonne longévité de ce parce que je veux acheter cette belle bouteille pour ma collection, mais avoir quelques réserves, car elle n'a pas duré longtemps sur moi.
Summary: It opens up with almost aquatic refreshing tea note then quickly warms up by cinnamon and chili pepper. It stays pretty much the same until dry down. Performance isn't as bad as others say. I get moderate projection and longevity (6 hrs) on my skin. All in all, it's a nice fresh spicy tea scent, which has calming effect.
Summary: I think the simplest way to describe this fragrance is with one word: calming. If not calming, classy would be a close second. This is one of those colognes I wear for my enjoyment, not necessarily the enjoyment of those around me. That's not to say that Gucci Pour Homme II doesn't garner compliments, it does; just not for any length of time. 2-3 hours into the life of the scent and you're putting your nose into your skin to smell it.
Summary: If Gucci or Procter & Gamble ever decides to discontinue Gucci PH II. They might as well stop making/selling perfumes, because this is the last "great" and "worth buying" cologne they have. The "New Pour Homme's" and "Guilty" flankers are not as good as the classics they have discontinued, they're just not worth buying. This is a great example of the manufacturers not listening to the consumers.
Summary: @ Juiceman0331 - I too hope Gucci won't ever discontinue nor tweak (or - what would be even worse - reformulate) this masterpiece.... By the way, I don't know how, but those crappy Guilty "fragrances" for men are selling very well in my country...
Summary: This is not my official review on Gucci Pour Homme II but I felt the need to say something in it's behalf.. I have a tiny sample which I got from Sephora.. It is a very soft and calming scent.. This is the first Tea fragrance I have smelled and I love it! It is a fresh fragrance but not a aquatic.. It is sweet and smells very classy and luxurious.. It is very subtle and smells gorgeous! The last great fragrance from Gucci that is still in production..
