Dutch fashion house Van Gils has launched Puur, their latest fragrance for men:
Van Gils is an intensely sexy and masculine fragrance.
This juice combines a hint of citrus and aromatics with essential woods and musks.
The purity and subtle balance of the ingredients radiate sheer style and sophistication.
The notes for the woody musky scent include bergamot, bitter orange, lavender, white cedar, cashmere wood, ambrette, guaiacwood, patchouli, sandalwood, amber and skin musks.
Van Gils Puur is available in 40 and 75 ml Eau de Toilette and in matching grooming products. (via press release)
Don't know about the scent, but I like the model a lot.
The model looks intensely sexy,I don´t know about intensely masculine, as he looks like he's been waxed within an inch of his life.
The description of the notes looks 100% interchangeable with most of the masculine mainstream scents released in the last 5 years. I will research Van Gils, as I am totally ignorant of their products!
He's not bad
I don't know how widely distributed they are outside Europe & Russia — they certainly aren't easy to find in the US.
So is it pronounced, 'purr' or 'pure'?
I'm thinking the bottle looks like a shrunken plastic 5 gallon water dispenser, you know the kind you see at the water cooler in your office?
Those Dutch sure know how to pick their models don't they.
The vowel sounds similar to the German ü, and to complicate matters, it doesn't appear in English. Sorry, guys.
The model is yum, but I can't say my hopes are as high for the scent. Van Gils is very much a drugstore brand, akin to Adidas and Axe.
Thanks. I won't even try to pronounce it in English, then.
It's actually a very easy vowel to pronounce: purse your lips as if you're saying “OOH”, but say “EEE” instead. (The shape of your mouth will change a little.)
The scent sounds exactly like all the other men's scents we're trying so hard to avoid.
He looks a little like Julian McMahon.
You read my mind. I did not make the Julian McMahon associaton yesterday, but today I was like “Hey, it's Julian McMahon!!! Dr. Doom! :-)”
And of course the naughty Nip/Tuck doctor hehe
OK, hot model,…
…. but if I had not read the text, i would have assumed this was a poster for a new deodorant stick.
The shape of the bottle, the uplifted arm….
That's harder than it sounds. I'll stick with just not saying it aloud
Ok, googled him, now I know
Hey, so it does!
