After I had applied it and started analyzing it a bit, I thought that it was a hodge-podge of synthetics with aimless intent. "Let me read what other reviewers have to say about this.....this......fragrance". So........I did.
The most notable review was a comparison to monkey vomit. I can only assume the reviewer was a zoo keeper or else I don't want to know. Monkey vomit is a harsh opinion and even though it doesn't smell vile to me, it's flat out inferior to basically anything else I've sampled in years. This was released in 2004 and Hummer had the audacity to release a flanker the following year. Could it be that this fragrance made a profit? I'm scared to ask what country it did well in.
The listed notes according to multiple sites is : Pimento, Thyme, Caraway, Cardamom, Leather, Amber, Sandalwood and Patchouli.
The opening of Hummer is some sort of citric spice that doesn't resemble the listed accord. Everything in this fragrance is blurred and as far from realistic as possible. I do get a type of leather, but it has a latex note attached to it. Amber, sandal and patchouli have run as far away as possible from this chemical brew and I have called the police to list them as missing. They said they didn't care.
I don't blame them. I blame Riviera Concepts or whoever the hell it is that's peddling this juice to an uneducated fragrance public. I truly hope Santa leaves some Monkey vomit in Riviera's stocking, but considering they might turn that into yet another flanker has me perturbed.
Two thumbs and a big toe down for the fragrance blo$jo* that is Hummer.
