The opening of EXPLORER begins with a bold and punchy note of Bergamot which makes the fragrance feel instantly fresh and clean. Immediately it transports me to the warm weather, sitting on a hot beach sipping a cool mojito, giving me all the Spring/Summer vibes!
Shortly after the opening, EXPLORER then takes a slightly muskier, woodier turn, but rather than feeling dense and a little heavy as woody notes can often feel, the fragrance still has that a sharp, clean edge to it which feels light upon my skin, but heavy enough for others to notice!
EXPLORER lasted for up to 7-8 hours which was impressive in itself given how clean and light this felt and its silage was medium-heavy. This fragrance is as versatile as it is interesting and could be worn either in the daytime or at night! Be prepared for a compliment or six…
Now, I do want to be honest with you all as I always am here on my blog, this fragrance did remind me of another fragrance out there… With that being said, there are some differences and I won’t be naming it as it would be unfair, and everybody experiences fragrances differently so if you do get a chance to smell this, let me know what you think!
