Good Life by Davidoff
In truth, it really doesn't matter as long as the totality is a winner. This is a fougere that follows Davidoff Classic down a slightly different path. After wearing Good Life multiple times, I'm persuaded to believe that the accord information, albeit scattered, contains the correct info when pieced together.
The opening reveals a citric lavender with what I can only construe as a fig rendition and an even more prominent sage note. It's very different and very good. I also get an aquatic undertone that is extremely subtle and is more apparent in the extended drydown. Once the initial accord settles down, I swear I smell hints of rosewood, but they are intermittent and of a wispy nature. The sage note permeates the composition, is out front and is an enjoyable rendition.
The base is a placid aroma of wood, musk, a dash of tonka over a now visible aquatic accord and still has a sage note present and accounted for. These wearings have convinced me that Good Life is a very viable fougere and worthy addition. I seem to have developed an affinity for this when the desire strikes me to wear a scent in this category.
I like it and give it a thumbs up. I also advise a sample wearing ( or two) because this is off the beaten path.
