For me, Davidoff Adventure is the typical example of a fragrance associated to a celebrity spokesperson, because every time I think of the scent, Ewan McGregor instantly appears to my mind. Therefore, it is fair to say that the marketing team from Davidoff has done an excellent job, associating the fragrance with the face of the Scottish actor. As a performer who became famous for his parts in the movies, McGregor is less perceived as a real adventurer, who is passionate about motorcycling. And that’s exactly what Adventure is, “the thrill of the unknown”, “a challenge to find your limits and push beyond them, to go your own way, wherever that might take you”, mentioned in the description from the official website.
Adventure was introduced by Davidoff in February 2008, as a woody spicy fragrance, developed by perfumer Antoine Lie, from Givaudan. The composition of this scent relies on the unusual ingredients from the fragrance industry, to shape up a fresh spicy and woody composition, which is both audacious and essential.
Adventure begins on a pungent citrus blend of bergamot, mandarin and lemon, balanced by the maté tea leaves and spicy black pepper. This first stage is meant to awake your senses, then, as the perfume reaches mid development, the heart is unveiled, in a combination of aromatic black sesame and South American pimento. In the dry down, the vanished middle notes are replaced by a mixture of rare woods (Peruvian cedar woods), vetiver and white musk, in a trail that’s meant to confer sensuality to this scent.
Davidoff Adventure comes in a bottle that was designed by the French design agency Alnoor (responsible for many of the latest Davidoff perfumes), with a shape that exhibits masculine forms, being the perfect travel accessory for a dynamic man. The transparent glass reveals an amber-like shade of liquid, while being topped by a metallic upper part engraved with the brand’s name and a stopper made from a matching material. The packaging box sports a shade of brown that reminds of leather products.
