So I have scored a free sample of Zadig & Voltaire “This is him!” EdP, and it passed the Better Half’s nose with flying colours.
It’s a pretty woodsy scent, with a lingering topnote and a sustained base. Grapefruit, black pepper, incense, sandalwood and vanilla might sound like an odd mix – at least it do to me – but it works well. It’s fairly intense – in that a little goes a looong way – and have significant staying power; 8 hours after putting it on it smells no different than when applied.
Some might find the scent aggressive, but according to my Better Half it’s assertive – marking position and presence. For some that might be a turn-off, for others a turn-on.
Fall and winter should suit this EdP fine, I do believe it’s a little heavy for spring and summer. YMMV off course.
