Relativation 1.0 - or the history of the menthol cigarette
...the fresh northern lights.
...by the same man who made Nautica Voyage.
...that's supposed to smell like a niche.
... Fahrenheit with mint.
Many descriptions honor the Nordmann. But to be honest, I want to relativize it.
Now in the summer I could test him extensively. Both the Nautica and the Fresh are considered fresh. There was always one thing that bothered me about the Nautica and the Fresh and that is the oppressive synthetics. To prolong the shelf life, the perfumer adds his favourite long-lasting fragrance chemistry. The result is not fresh lightness, but oppressive freshness.
In addition, the Fresh, again similar to the Nautica, has no fragrance course. It remains rigid as it is, from beginning to end.
The fragrance itself, apart from the synthetic, smells quite good. He's a little Fahrenheit. The mint is good to smell, slightly sweet it is also. He actually reminds me of menthol cigarettes. And so is somehow his image. Only a few like these relics from the 90s.
I like the '90s. I like Dunhill Fresh. I don't like menthol cigarettes, though. I have never understood these and some opinions about the fragrance mentioned here.
The fragrance is simply a pressingly fresh-synthetic banger, without gradient, with sweet mint and with associations of menthol cigarettes.
No more and no less.
