Bruce Oldfield Eau de Parfum
Sampling this particular fragrance has landed me in that gray area of appreciation and partial indifference. I enjoyed the wearings because it's a pleasant and easy experience to don Bruce Oldfield. My ambivalence is derived from the fact that the totality is rather ordinary, rehashing a theme that has already been done numerous times. At $165 for a 100ml., it's a deterrent for me. However, I speak for myself and others may have no qualms about shelling out the dough.
Bruce Oldfield EDP is clandestine and makes no waves whatsoever. It's a smooth scent that possesses body at low volume. I thoroughly enjoy the suppleness even though it leans more feminine than shared. This would actually make a nice choice for close encounters where scent is desired but not distraction.
Within 10 minutes, you know this is a conservative aroma. There's no statement to be made, yet that doesn't eliminate Bruce Oldfield from being very nice and situation-appropriate. The base and drydown is residual floral-green-balsam slowly usurped by a calming rendition of van-amber.
Sillage is moderate and longevity is approximately 3 hours or a little better on my skin. The skin scent lasts longer than that, but reapplication should be a consideration if you intend to have some projection and presence over the course of a work day. Thumbs up from Aromi for Bruce Oldfield in spite of my not agreeing with the price point. A sample wear is highly recommended.
