Less than 1 million - lots of plum & hazelnut

The 1 Million Series. She gets on the nerves of many, also because of the often hated original. A bestseller widespread and often worn. Meanwhile there are already many Flanker. Cologne,Intense,Prive,EDP and now the Lucky. For such a classic, the Flankers keep within limits. Especially since I find them all very useful and well done. I was very excited about this Lucky one. As is the case with new introductions here. The curiosity for the plum note was great. Also the bottle: Very appealing and prolicious. Even if I don't wear the original: I like it and I like to wear the flankers. One thing I can say in advance: Apart from the Prive, this Lucky has little resemblance to the original DNA and is largely independent.

I was determined to test this one quickly. Which was a great fit: I bought another bottle of Dior Homme Eau from Douglas and the nice saleswoman offered me a sample. I was very happy inside, because I wanted to test it anyway. Samples are great, because one-time volatile tests are usually rather inaccurate. Samples a 2ml are perfect to decide if you like it or if you are on the wish list.
Star of this fragrance: The hazelnut is very clear. And don't forget the plum. These two notes are most perceptible. Very unique and you don't have the feeling that you've smelled it somewhere before. I can't think of a twin right now. Not at all.
At the start lots of plum and also pleasantly fresh notes. It starts a bit harder, but the freshness keeps it somewhat uncomplicated. Very pleasant, especially for plum lovers. The beautiful hazelnut note comes quickly. A true crowdpleaser in this composition. Very soft and sweet. A note I like very much. Especially in autumn for me one of the best notes, because this note is not too heavy, but still top for cooler and mild days. Cuddly. Added to this is soft wood. Especially the cashmere wood. Perfect for soft compositions and very harmonious with the hazelnut. Even a little patchouli shines through. I cannot smell all the notes from the pyramid, but the mixed composition is harmonious. Even if you don't smell the honey, it could help you with the hazelnut note. He also has a light coconut vibe in the station wagon.
The top note with the plum is a bit more prolacious, from the heart on it becomes more cuddly and I don't find it so unsuitable for everyday use. On colder days a nice alternative for some occasions. Of course it is also suitable for the nightlife like the whole 1 million-family, whereby the performance is rather top for the everyday life.
Performance: The first hour very powerful, also afterwards very perceptible. Not penetrating, but well perceptible far above the skin. It lasts about 6 hours, and then it subsides slightly for about 2-3 hours. Top!

For me, it wasn't love at first sight. I like him better and better on the second and third tests. Maybe even better in autumn. A fragrance that points above all with its uniqueness. He's got something. Quite an interesting station wagon. For now, I'm giving 8.5., maybe it'll go up in the fall. I will probably buy the 50ml version for autumn.
If you are not averse to sweet and fruity fragrances, you should test them. Even 1 million enemies should not be deterred by the name. Very unique and very independent, especially for a flanker.

I want you to be my gold bar

There is nothing more to be said about the reputation and sponsorship of "One Million", nor about the amazing qualities of the original. For me it is the most influential men's perfume of the last ten years. And that means something, no matter what you think of him personally or not. Of course Paco Rabanne (but surprisingly sparse) followed with flankers over the decade - the still quite current "Lucky" landed right in front of me.

And "One Million" opponents can breathe a sigh of relief - he hardly has any original DNA left. Which, of course, is not a free ride to like. Because style, clientele and tone are still fundamentally unchanged. Much more "Lucky" seems to me like a mixture of the Cologne of the golden "Gangster" classic and the unfortunately forgotten Givenchy "Very Irresistable for Men". A fruity hazelnut cream scent. Of course youthful and already somehow "player" moderate. But also much more relaxed and friendly. The name fits. Instead of a grim Mackeraura, this journeyman has a radiance in his face. No sunshine, but as far in the direction as a "checker" can be. An overripe plum with sugar icing and hazelnut kernel. Not only does that sound delicious, it is. "One Million Lucky" is a successful offshoot that breaks new ground, but wanders in the same direction as the original. Mostly southbound, especially for female "targets". "Lucky just makes it a lot more unobtrusive and relaxed.

Flacon: iconic design, nothing new
Sillage: one of the more discreet gold bars - amazingly suitable for leisure time!
Shelf life: one million lasts and doesn't go away! This one's about nine hours.

Conclusion: different, fresher, friendlier and of course much more unused and unburdened than the original. The lucky million is very pleasant, despite the enormous sweetness and actually the same target group as always. For me the most portable gold bar at the moment!

The somewhat different gold bar

Even on the outside, you can tell that 1 Million Lucky is different from its predecessors. The new gold or rather silver bar comes in a new look that is unmistakably part of the 1 Million family. The new silver look somehow seems "fresher" and less ostentatious, which I personally like a lot. The processing could be a little better, but well, we know that.

In the fragrance, however, are taken here completely new paths, so the thing has with the classic 1 million actually purely nothing to do. And that's a good thing! The people at Paco Rabanne has succeeded here in my eyes a real stroke of luck with a completely new DNA that you have not already smelled a thousand times and which does not remind you of any pompous asses from the next nightclub. Maybe just that is the reason why he is so well received by the opposite sex: It is simply no 1 million.
I wear this fragrance for a handful of months and I've certainly never been asked so often about my perfume. Surprised me also not at all because Lucky smells just incredibly awesome! It starts with a wonderfully gourmandy top note, which for me is mainly characterized by the hazelnut, which smells so incredibly good as if Mom had just conjured a cake from it. As it progresses, this tends to fade into the background and is complemented by a really smooth plum. The honey softens things up wonderfully and is almost soothing. The woody notes I smell personally not separately out however one notices that these make the gesante composition somehow masculine and accordingly also prevent that Lucky before loud sweetness sticks to the skin.

Also durability and sillage are top in my opinion. At noon sprayed on you really still have the whole evening what of it. How that can hold with some people really only 3 hours is beyond me. In addition, the thing is a real Raumfüller you still smells from the opposite corner.

I think with the current rating of 7.7 Lucky is done wrong. He is more than just mediocre and really has so little to do with the orginal 1 million that he could also belong to its own series. For me, a very successful and very inviting party scent, which may well and gladly come into use in the spring by the missing cinnamon.

Everything could be so beautiful...

...but as so often in life, there's a catch. And it lies - at least with me - in the durability. I love this fragrance and especially like to wear it on warm days, but unfortunately it is already after 2-3 hours (generously calculated) as good as no longer perceptible with me, although I give up my other restraint while spraying on. No comparison to the original "1 Million", which lasted forever. And also no comparison to other fragrances from my collection like "Aqva Amara" by Bvlgari or "Ultra Male" by JPG, which are real beasts in terms of "Long Lasting". In short: a fragrance to fall in love with, with a performance to forget

sweet hazelnut ice cream

After I had heard some positive things about Lucky from various Youtube reviewers and then got a sample for an order by chance, I was quite new, but my expectations were kept within limits.

The opening immediately reminded me of hazelnut ice cream, even though I only devoured this ice cream a few times. I didn't think it smelled so much like hazelnut. At the beginning you still have this creamy rabbit nut vibe, which quickly changes to a creamy, slightly woody sweetness, which no longer reminds too much of hazelnut ice cream. This sweetness comes from the honing and the plum note. You can also smell the woody nuances but they are never in the foreground.

I can't show parallels to the One Million, because I always kept my fingers off the scent, but apart from the sweetness, I'm supposed to have little in common with the original.

The scent's pretty good, but it's not gonna knock me out. Smells already very sweet and somewhat syntetisch. I think it's funny that such a fragrance is released just before summer. Good comparisons to decide if the fragrance would be worth to be included in my "collection" would be for me Allure Homme eau extreme (for me it's mostly a sweet fragrance) or The One. Both fragrances smell much better for me and are much more versatile. I'd only wear Lucky in the cold season. Performance is quite good.

If you are looking for a youthfully smelling gourmet fragrance for the cold seasons, you should check it out here.
