Fire & Ice for Men by Revlon
My best guess at implemented notes is :
Bergamot, Mandarin, Lavender, Plum, Carnation, Geranium, Orris, Amber, Rosewood, Sandalwood.
The opening is reminiscent of bergamot, orange and lavender that's already permeated with amber. The fruit note that arises shortly thereafter reminds me of a plummy, pineapple concoction. The combination of amber and fruit has Fire and Ice leaning sweet from the onset and it remains that way throughout the life of the wearings.
I experience periodic whiffs of what could be subtle carnation, geranium and hints of violet. These floral notes are not strong by any means. The amber quality is thick and heavy, making it difficult for any of the heart notes to materialize.
Sillage is good and longevity is most of the day on my skin. This scent is powerful and more than a few sprays can easily become cloying. Thumbs up from Aromi for Revlon's Fire and Ice for Men.
