A clean & versatile, grapefruit-y & woody scent
This is a perfume that is advertised as a unisex scent, which totally makes sense to me because I have never understood why scents need to be gendered. Just wear what you like, everybody!
I should mention at the onset that I know nothing of G-Dragon, the celebrity who created this scent. I'm aware that he is a Korean pop star, but that's about it. I pretty much saw the bottle at Sephora, tried it out on a whim, and fell in love at first sniff. Basically, I'm not fawning over this because I am already a fan, or anything like that.
THE SCENT: Out of the notes that are listed, I would say that the grapefruit note and the woody notes (cedarwood, musk) are the strongest. It's a clean scent that's appropriate for all sorts of occasions, whether it be a casual day out or a day at the office. There's something about it that makes you feel alive, like you could slay everything that comes at you that day.
It has been described as being a "marine" scent, which doesn't make a lot of sense given the list of tones apart from the "seaweed". Thankfully this doesn't smell like seaweed, but I do get the "marine"-ness. It reminds me of a "marine"-scented shampoo that I used to use when I was teenager.
The official description says it can be mixed with other scents, but honestly I think there's too much going on here already to mix it with another scent.
STRENGTH: It doesn't come on too strong. In fact, I sometimes wish it would last a little longer since the scent tapers off for the most part in about 6 hours. (Nothing a reapplication can't fix, but it's troublesome to carry around a glass bottle throughout the day.) I suppose that's about average for an eau de toilette, though.
OCCASION: I usually use this scent on days when I feel like I want something a little less wild and less likely to offend sensitive noses compared to some of my usual scents.
PRICE: It's a little on the pricier side, but if you a) love the scent after trying it out in the Sephora stores, b) like the celebrity who created the scent, or both, then it's very much worth it.
