A grapefruit, a wood lath and a little synthetic..
Preliminary:
I like citrusy scents.
And usually I don't make the price an issue.
Everyone should wear what he wants and what he feels comfortable with.
And everyone should also spend what they want on a fragrance if they are in tune with it.

Now to the Tygar:
Yesterday in direct comparison with Boadiceas Energizer tested.
The Tygar is nice at first, and actually quite a stayer for a citrician.
But that's it, the headline to this comment says absolutely EVERYTHING the scent has to offer...there's nothing more.

In a direct comparison Tygar against the Energizer even draws the short straw.
For me, even quite clearly, because after 8 hours remains close to the skin by the whole Ambrox something back, which it is (for me) to avoid in any case:
A sauvage vibe !!!

The energizer is also skin deep after this time, but clearly stays with the lemon theme, without this extreme synthetic drydown.

As I said, in life everything is in the eye of the beholder.
But 300 € for this mix I find already more than cheeky.

The Energizer is already overpriced with 200 €, but at least you do not smell like Johnny Depp at the end.
Citrus fragrances are neither witchcraft nor quite big fragrance chimes.
I am of the opinion that there are also in the designer segment significantly better concoctions at a (also) significantly better price / performance ratio.
With an Allure Edition Blanche, for example, you never go wrong.

Conclusion:
Unspectacular
Long-lasting
Clearly too much Ambrox
Unpleasant sauvage vibe in drydown
Price unreasonable, actually a cheek

Let fingers of it, for the coal you get three other Zitriker, which are clearly better.

I am so strong, so strong, so strong as a tiger and.....
With these words I could smell this wonderful scent some time ago. Thanks also to a great perfumo for the rehearsal.
I know Bvlgari from the mainstream. With a rather weaker performance. So I was able to test this sample. Tygar. Sounds pretty much like a tiger, doesn't it? Is it so beautiful orange, so powerful and so fast?
The antelope is sitting there. The tiger sneaks up on us. Easy. One too fast movement and the antelope is gone, the tiger must starve and the search continues. Very gently. Quiet as an ant. In the deep degree, it seems, he leaves the traces. Just look up to see if the food is still there. Immediately winter down and slowly approach. Look back to make sure he's the only one. He is. Does the antelope smell the tiger? He's not hoping. We're moving on. Not for long. Tiger's getting ready to jump. The antelope seems attentive. Looking around. And Zack. In a fast and deliberate jump the tiger attacks. Full force against the antelope. You bite the side. The antelope makes the last sounds of itself before it dies powerless. The tiger, with its covered attack-technique and with the speed, has seized its loot and its eat. Slowly, with much effort, he pulls the antelope in his mouth through the savannah to a suitable place. Bit by bit he devours his well-deserved and self-hunted food. He'll have enough to eat for himself for some time.

With this force, the Tygar smashes in. A splash and the whole variety of scents (or not) shows up. Grapefruit with a slightly woody note. With a super Sillage. Durability, which is stunning. A straight-lined fragrance. Without great depths and heights. 3 fragrances which are completely sufficient for this fragrance. I can imagine that certain perfumers find the scent boring. I find the super fresh and elegant wood note bomb. As bombastic as the fragrance is, there would only be the price not (280Eur).

Are these Le Gemme fragrances from Bvlgari so unknown? Do the few fragrances scare you away? or is it the high price?

I'm recommending him. Do you like fresh, not aquatic, scents? Which one comes up with a slight wood note? Aren't 2.80Eur/ml too much for you? Then test this fragrance and you'll be delighted.

Now it's time to go outside to give this smell of the world to smell.

Happy Easter.

Exponential decay
In search of the perfect summer freshie with a twist and a long shelf life, I've been testing my way around the world for a long time.

Afternoon Swim was and is a very hot candidate, but the shelf life is very short for me. About the ingredients: Amber / Ambrox in combination with citric notes I came across Le Gemme Tygar. I liked the simplicity on paper.

When the mail finally arrived, I was bursting with curiosity: applied and BOOM. Citrusy, but not unpleasant or artificial, somehow elegant. It smells expensive. The chloriney touch that picked me up so much from Afternoon Swim is also there, but in just the right amount so as not to steal the show. Perfect.

I was ready to order the 100ml. But the luxurious freshness felt like it evaporated every minute and revealed what was hiding underneath: somewhat unpleasant and slightly penetrating ambrox notes that seem very synthetic. Like smelling polyester. And it is precisely this part that is long-lasting, even after the fragrance has been blended.

The fragrance is like a Greek dinner: an absolute feast when you eat it, but the aftertaste of tzatziki is persistent, unpleasant and not even brushing your teeth helps.

Quite a surprise!
I have to say, I’m normally into very particular scents; those that are complex, often challenging, something that can literally change or enhance my mood or give me a nose-gasm. Like vintage masculines from the ‘80’s (Kouros, Antaeus), funky ouds from Areej le Doré and Bortnikoff, daring niche fragrances, and of course some exquisitely constructed luxury perfumes like Roja.

Somehow, some way, I actually love this supremely exquisite, simple perfume from the famous Jacques Cavallier! 3 notes? 3 notes. But absolutely beautifully done.

Magically sparkling citrusy grapefruit on the top, spicy ginger, and there’s an amberiness in the drydown that is quite lovely, if not a bit synthetic. Generally, it’s an airy experience, think Baccarat Rouge 540, and chock full of Ambroxan just the same. This means you may not smell it on yourself after a short time, but others will, no doubt!

Take for example, I sprayed it on a couple hours before going out with friends to the bar. At this point 2+ hours in, I could barely smell a thing on myself. When I walked in the door of the bar, the very beautiful bartender girl who stood about 8 feet away (2.5 meters) instantly said “OMG, who smells so good!?” My friends pointed at me, of course, being the only one of us who was wearing perfume. Win!

I typically only wear perfume for myself, but now I may make an exception for Tygar. I enjoy it, others enjoy it, and I will continue wearing it when the occasion calls (particularly when I go to this bar since I have a bit of a crush on this bartender ;) ).

A long lasting, people pleasing, luxurious fresh fragrance.
It smells (very) pleasing, the best way i could describe this perfume is a: Fresh & candied orange with a very high concentration of Ambrox of very good quality and small dose of woods.

I like to wear it when it's sunny but not too hot outside (as the ambroxan can be a little overwhelming in the high heat).

It projects like a monster and the longevity is out of this world for a fresh fragrance, i wore it a couple days ago, i got complimented over ten hours after applying and was told that it smells strong so...

It's simplicty makes it very pleasing, but for 340€ it's a bit high of a price for such a simple formula it's not refillable like the LVs and it's 100ml, a fair price for this perfume would be 260€+- (same prices as Dior & Louis Vuitton perfumes)

I’m surprised by the high rating of this scent, to me it smells like any Big Brand generic, like Boss or Lacoste. The price is ridiculous.

Fresh grapefruit with some sweetness and spiciness in the opening. A smooth, creamy and woody Ambroxan in the base. Modern scent for Spring.
