About this deal

I think you should wear fragrances because you like them and not because you want other people to tell you that they like them, but there is that. Just put on a couple of sprays and let yourself catch whiffs of it throughout the day and judge it fairly! Later on, towards the dry down, when the citruses fade away, the ambroxan, woody, and musk notes create this beautiful woody sweet ambergris-like scent cloud.

I was in Walmart two days ago standing by a end cap and a lady and her daughter walk by approximately 5 feet away and when she got about 5 yards away she turned and said “um you smell good as hell”. Sure the opening is much more smooth in the original but it is gone in a sec and this is where this one shines. Personally my nose gets only the florals and the musk so it's weird to hear about a synthetic citrus opening. It's one of those colognes that are disappointing when you first apply it, but after a couple hours and you can still smell it and it's developed you are 200% happy with your purchase. I bought the deodrant version prior to this which lasts long as well and mainly shows the mid note of this.you constantly catch whiffs off it which great from a performance point of view but not with this strength and formula. SMW is way more complex and citrussy in its opening and armaf definitely has a synthetic note and is sweeter. Maybe after 3-4 hours you’ll get very light whiffs of it yourself but others around you can smell it really really good. It's also worth mentioning that as per the name (sillage) this fragrance is intended to leave a scent in the room, rather than only being smelt within a couple metres of you. This is pure nostalgia for me, SMW was second ever frag that got me into perfumes and I used to use Derby Club House Blanche (becuase I was a kid too poor for SMW) back in the days and this DNA was my jam and with Sillage it still is!

At first I thought that it was completely different, but after the second sniff I noticed something: It's just a lot weaker. There are, however, few exceptions which are very good: Armaf CDN Sillage is such exception, alongside Lattafa Oud for Glory. A separate question regarding the quality of the actual content, if it irritates the eyes and overwhelms the receptors. What really baffles me though, I sprayed this on a shirt and disliked it so much that I changed shirts. Fresh and pungent opening, has that inky smell but not that much, the woods are definitely there and the jasmine it's definitely there.I've never tried SMW so I can't compare the two but this as the comment underneath me says, does not remind me of spring mountain water and fresh air. After a minute, the sharp citrus fades and turns into a bright, yet inky floral, comforting, mysterious scent.

A great alternative for someone who is not a fan of the typical "blue" frags, but still wants to smell clean. Overtime, the maceration processes brings down the citrus blast and the true blend of the fragrance comes sooner.
