My Comments:

Optimistic for Him is an excellent designer fragrance, which can be found in majority of perfume stores, launched in 2011 by the perfumer – Francoise Caron.

If I have to say as key word – “Fresh, pleasant and refreshing“

It is an awesome blend of a citrus, floral and spice notes, the top notes are very fresh citrus can last for 1 – 2 hours, then turns to be floral bit marine for middle note can last for 8 hours then settling calmly to skin level with notes of Vetiver and cedar for base note for 10+ hours. A very pleasant scent that is easy on the nose.

The compliments from women and men are endless. Best suited for spring and summer – but it can be worn all seasons . Suits all occasion and places, can be a signature scent.

If I have to say (Try or Buy) a definite try!
