I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend this year Feb (2023) and she absolutely loves it. This perfume is floral & sweet, she uses it on her office days and it last 5-6 hrs.
This scent is similar to the old school aventus however it falls short on the performance side. Hot days are when this scent really struggles and if you out and about, you will need to top up every 3-4 hours. I will try Al haramain next if Rio has stock.
First spray I wasn’t sure about the fragrance but as it sat for a couple of days it’s now my favorite! It’s really really good
People compliment me all day long, the perfume lasts hours on end and even stays in once clothing is washed. Just love IT 110%
Amazing scent...and even better service from Rio Perfumes.
Just perfect, I get compliments everyday and people ask me where I bought it.
Projection not so great. More of a Winter fragrance. To be worn for date nights or 4-6 occasions
Lasts half a day
Beautiful smell but doesn't last as long as expected..
This is the best perfume, bought it for my woman and she is in love with it.
I love it it last for days.
Having read reviews about this on Fragrantica and watching Gents Scents video, I thought... lemme try it. The packaging and bottle are beautiful. I received it whilst at work and decided to open it up in the office and this was an instant hit with a few colleagues. You get that really good wood, honey and cinnamon scent that is absolutely stunning. There is a skank note if you bury your nose into your skin but that smell does not project. I must say, this could easily sell for R2000+ and considering it's a limited edition, who knows when they might stop making this. Will be sure to pick up another bottle sometime later.
The perfume delivered!!!
The most beautiful fragrance I have ever owned. Smells like money. And not Rands. A foreign currency!!! Thank you for the efficiency from ordering to my doorstep delivery. This is the fragrance I have always wanted, but never knew. The smell? Heavenly. The combination of coconut and vanilla pod? A match made in olfactory heaven. I'll be sure getting compliments whilst on holiday in sunny Durban, South Africa. And to Rio perfumes? Expect more of me please.
Expected a tropical, beachy, airy scent. It’s cloying & thick like motor oil. Doesn’t come off even after a shower. Wasted money for me.
As soon as I sprayed this fragrance it transported me to the smells of sitting in a tropical island… the sea breeze, vanilla, white florals and coconut cocktails. Performance is amazing on my skin. Mancera never disappoints!!
The opening of this fragrance smells like a familiar coco butter cream, which I don’t mind. I get vanilla, sea notes and a faint bubble gum sweetness in the middle and the dry down (my favourite part) is a luxurious vanilla cream and sandalwood scent. This scent is inoffensive and easy to wear, airy scent. Works perfectly fine in hot weather but the creamy dry down could be pleasant in colder months.
Amazing perfume for summer. The name definitely encompasses the smell. To me it smells like sea air, coconut lotion and a tropical drink in one hand. Projection and lasting power = insane 12 out of 10!
