I know, I know, it been a WHILE since I've featured a new Men's Fragrance Find - but guess what? This one definitely makes up for the long break.
Adidas Born Original Fragrance Eau de Toilette Spray will appeal not only to a sporty/athletic man, but a man who loves a crisp, citrusy scent with just a hint of spice.
This scent is officially billed as a classical "remixed" oriental. When I smelled this on it's own, and on my tester hubby, what immediately struck me was the really beautiful green apple, violet and peppercorn opening, which made it fresh and still very sophisticated. The fragrance also has notes of rhubarb, peppermint, orange oil, rose, geranium and musk.
As the scent warms up, it becomes even better, blending the multiple minty/citrus notes with florals in a way that still smells "masculine". The dry down is still very light and sheer, with a woody finish, but one that's still on the green side. This is perfect for summer/early Fall.
The bottle design is pretty cool too, don't you think? It's a bit of a glacier/mountain feel with the top of a grenade (LOL). It certainly stands out from their other scents, and most men's cologne bottles on the market right now.
This scent comes in 3 sizes, all very reasonably priced, making this ideal for the man in your life to have one for home, and an extra one for travel/the gym.
This one will put a smile on you his (and your) face! - RLB
