A Le Male Vintage Dupe on steroids
First of all I would like to thank DonCarlo for the pleasant souk. Without him I would probably not have gotten this great smell. Thank you, Don Carlo Normally I always take some time before I write a comment on a fragrance. I like to test very extensively to get a better idea of the strengths and weaknesses of a fragrance. For once, Dua Man doesn't need this... Why? Because.. It is probably the best Le Male Dupe I have ever smelled and tasted. This contestant here is tops them all... This is good old LeMale as he was in his prime. A vintage version that, in layman's terms, hits you right in the face. I applied the scent to the back of his hands after work today, which was about 4h ago. Since then, I've been sunbathing for an hour and riding my bike for 2 hours. Nevertheless I still perceive the scent, even when I put my hands in my lap. This version of Dua is a real Sillagemonster. Unbelievable! We rode our bikes together and I only had a drop on the back of my hand. My wife rode behind me and she noticed the scent very well at regular intervals. That I am still allowed to experience something like that...really crazy.
About the scent itself... Dua Man is, a 1:1 copy of Le Male only twice, no, three times more potent than the original. It maintains the freshness of mint throughout and blends with the sweet vanilla and tonka bean. What's interesting is that the vetiver plays a role from the middle of the fragrance, making it a little sweet fresh dirty. Yummy!
The durability is brutal, as already indicated above. It stays on the skin for a very long time and with this projection I think well over 10h present. The sillage is still well present after 4-5h. Here is definitely caution required!
I can only judge the bottle from the picture, because I got a 10ml filling. It's ok, but it doesn't fit to the content as I think
In conclusion, Dua has managed to bring the Vintage Le Male version back to life and to improve it. A true monster that projects without end and catapults you back to the 90s. For fans and those who miss the old Le Male, this one is made for you. Unfortunately it is out of stock on the Dua side, which should make it difficult to get another one. But if you have the chance, take it!
