Coach for Men Platinum EdP is going to be the next must-buy -- it's amazing!


So I'm sampling this lately and I'm very, very impressed. Going to buy a bottle via an international seller asap. Let's just get that out of the way first.

So how do I know? Yes, the fragrance isn't available for purchase in the U.S. as far as I can tell, but a little bird told me Dillards had a tester bottle and samples. So I went and I asked. And they do. And they gave me some sample vials. My advice: go to Dillards asap and get your hands on these.

Now, the fragrance...

It opens with an extremely juicy pineapple and ambroxan. Very bright and radiant yet dense as well. Where the original Coach for Men wore thin and airy, this one sticks to you like a syrup. But not in a cloying way. What I'm saying is that it has body.

Personally, I found the original Coach for Men EdT too fleeting and too simply constructed for my tastes. It felt superficial and hurried in it's rush to market. Yes, it was classy. And it suited the Coach brand and aesthetics well, and it exuded quality ingredients (to my nose). But it felt like a rush-job. Rushed to market to capitalize on the ambroxan gravy train. No personality, but pleasant nonetheless. Now, the Platinum EdP feels richer with more emphasis on the pineapple and sage accords.

Yes, sage. It almost dries down to a medicinal herbal and sandalwood party. But because the pineapple lingers, it isn't off-putting. The sage is prominent, for sure. But while it's, say, 60% sage, there's still 30% pineapple to keep things palatable for the masses. I also get a faint vanilla lurking underneath. So while, yes, this is a freshie. It's a deep freshie and more versatile than, dare I say, Sauvage EdT.

And how does it compare to Sauvage? Much like the original Coach EdT: it's classier, not screechy, wears lighter and more transparent. But in the Platinum EdP's case, it's also more unique. Coach for Men EdT was, in my opinion, the epitome of a dumb reach (just like Sauvage). Now this Coach for Men Platinum EdP is an intentional reach. For sure, it's going to be a people pleaser moreso than the EdT because they will actually be able to smell it around you. That said, performance is average.

So what makes it bottle worthy? That's going to come down to the sage note. It's a dry, dusty sage, and it is strange to come across in a modern fragrance. Yet, it's strange and interesting.

I suspect this is going to fall into the category Varvatos Artisan Pure is in. The people who love it, rave about it. And then there's people on the fence about it, almost unwilling to commit to a negative opinion. (I'm one of those people.) But I have yet to come across someone online who vehemently hates it.
