Summary: I didn't expect to like this as much as I do. When I first smelt it I was not sure about it. Because it wasn't what I expected I had to wrap my brain around it and wear it a few times. Now it is the one I grab when I put on some juice. To describe it I would say this is what the sexiest man alive would wear. It isn't one of those citrus, water, cool smells. It is a warm, spicy, manly smell. Think chocolate, cigars, Cognac, and fine leather.
Summary: I love it and that is why I ordered it for my husband. It has a very rich/deep smell, lasts long. It's very different, masculine, spicy and at the same time it seems to be sweet. well probably I did not explain it well, but it is simply one of the best perfumes from Lanvin.
Summary: I love this fragrance. I knew I would from the description ( Italian bergamot, spicy Madagascar pepper, floral juniper, tobacco, lavender and beeswax). The bergamot, lavender, and tobacco are the most prominent notes. It is recommended for evening use, but I would also consider it for daytime when you have a meeting or if you are dealing with the public and need that confidence only an invisible accessory like fragrance can produce.
Summary: The first time I bought an Avant Garde was last year from a foreign country. It was great and long lasting. This one has the same nice smell. However, I don't think this is going to be the right one if you are looking for a long lasting perfume.
