Woody, floral and fruity
Woody, floral and fruity, and just about everything I would expect from a designer fragrance. Extatic by Pierre Balmain bares a fair resemblance to Sí Eclát by Giorgio Armani, especially on paper.

After dry down, I honestly cannot look past the resemblance when smelling it on paper. On my skin, however, Extatic is much more desirable than was Sí Eclát.
Extatic is rich, sweet and strong, and definitely belongs to the colder days or an evening out. The fragrance is strong on rose and pear, but it also has smooth notes of cashmere and slight leather. Osmanthus makes this fragrance more wearable to me, but it is not a fragrance I care to reach for.

I must say I am torn whether I like or dislike Extatic, but after some back and forth smelling it on my skin, I must admit that not being repelled by a fragrance isn't a sign of liking it! I have just grown accustomed to disliking the designer fragrances that I have tried and not disliking it almost seems as if it is likable, but that's not the case.
The fragrance fully developed is just about as any designer fragrance. It is as if they all have the same base accord that only has other top and middles notes added to them, but the essence is the same. The mood the same, the vision the same, the likability the same.

I must say that I am quite underwhelmed and as I have said before, after I'm done reviewing the designer perfume samples I have, I won't be reaching for them anymore.

Balmain: "New School". Alas.
Balmain jumped on the band-waggon of fruity-floral Jimmy Choo and his numerous friends. I wanted the really beautiful bottle for my collection, but if you're not keen on the vessel, but on the fragrance itself, you'll find that "Extatic" smells like many of the other mainstream syrupy perfumes out there - with an accent on nashi-pear, orange blossom and a very loud base of cashmeran with dashes of sweet caramel. The house of Balmain gave us "Vent Vert", "Jolie Madame" and "Ivoire", to name just a few of their gorgeous old school perfumes . Unfortunately, their latest baby - misleadingly called "Extatic" - is one of the most disappointing fragrances of 2014.
