A summer flirt with "Afternoon Swim"
From the moment I put on "Afternoon Swim", I was enchanted. The feeling of plunging into an idyllic seascape was overwhelming - as if I was jumping straight into the cool water. A liberating experience that I absolutely love!

My girlfriend and I were immediately captivated by the fresh, invigorating aura of this fragrance. But our enthusiasm was short-lived, because after about three hours the fragrance was just a whiff. Nevertheless, the combination of tangy mandarin and citrusy ginger notes is simply fascinating and creates an instant summer mood.

In typical LV style, the bottle also looks great and signals high quality. However, even the best visuals cannot quite make up for the short duration of the fragrance's presence. The relationship with "Afternoon Swim" remains a summer affair, fleeting and not destined to last forever. I will certainly enjoy it for the occasional day, but there are better ways to invest in fragrances that stay with you for longer.

Pure love
I love this fragrance!!! It reminds me of my childhood, it gives me such great feelings when I spray it on and wear it. Thoughts of the warm orange sunset, the warm winds on a summer evening by the sea. This freshness, this sweet aquatic, slightly citrusy scent. There are few fragrances that trigger so many and, above all, such positive emotions in me. I've been collecting all of LV's fragrances for years, but this one shares first place with Imagination, and nothing comes after it for a long time. It's just a pity that the shelf life is relatively short and you have to use one or two extra sprays to make the fragrance last longer. I love this fragrance

Ein teurer Duft mit durchwachsenen Ergebnissen
Afternoon Swim von Louis Vuitton ist ein Duft, der viele Erwartungen weckt, aber in einigen wichtigen Bereichen nicht ganz überzeugen kann. Hier ist meine detaillierte Bewertung basierend auf meinen Erfahrungen:

Duft: 6.5/10
Der Duft von Afternoon Swim ist angenehm, aber nicht außergewöhnlich. Es handelt sich um einen frischen, zitrischen Duft, der perfekt für den Sommer ist. Die Noten von Orange, Bergamotte und Mandarine sind erfrischend und lebendig, aber der Duft bleibt insgesamt recht linear und entwickelt sich kaum weiter. Für diejenigen, die etwas Einfaches und Frisches suchen, ist es ideal, aber für Parfumliebhaber, die Tiefe und Komplexität schätzen, könnte es enttäuschend sein.

Sillage: 7.0/10
Die Sillage von Afternoon Swim ist durchschnittlich. Der Duft hinterlässt eine moderate Spur, die von der Umgebung wahrgenommen wird, aber nicht überwältigend stark ist. Es ist ein Duft, der dezent im Hintergrund bleibt, was für den Alltag gut sein kann, aber für besondere Anlässe fehlt es etwas an Präsenz.

Langlebigkeit: 4.0/10
Die Langlebigkeit ist leider enttäuschend. Auf meiner Haut hält der Duft nur etwa vier Stunden, bevor er fast vollständig verschwindet. Für ein Luxusparfum dieser Preisklasse ist dies besonders enttäuschend, da man hier eine längere Haltbarkeit erwarten würde. Mehrmaliges Nachsprühen ist notwendig, um den Duft über den Tag hinweg zu genießen.

Flakon: 7.0/10
Der Flakon ist durchschnittlich bis gut gestaltet und spiegelt den minimalistischen, eleganten Stil von Louis Vuitton wider. Er ist funktional und ansprechend, aber nichts Besonderes, was in Erinnerung bleibt. Für den Preis hätte ich ein etwas beeindruckenderes Design erwartet.

Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis: 4.0/10
Afternoon Swim ist teuer, und obwohl der Duft angenehm ist, rechtfertigen die durchschnittliche Sillage und die schlechte Langlebigkeit den hohen Preis nicht vollständig. Es gibt andere zitrische Düfte auf dem Markt, die eine bessere Gesamtleistung bieten und dabei preiswerter sind.

Fazit: Louis Vuitton Afternoon Swim ist ein erfrischender Sommerduft mit einem angenehmen, aber einfachen Aroma. Die durchschnittliche Sillage und die enttäuschende Langlebigkeit trüben jedoch den Gesamteindruck. Der Flakon ist elegant, aber nichts Besonderes. Für den hohen Preis hätte ich mehr erwartet. Wer auf der Suche nach einem luxuriösen, aber unkomplizierten Sommerduft ist, könnte Afternoon Swim dennoch schätzen, sollte sich jedoch der Schwächen bewusst sein.

YOU make me sad...
Hello everyone,

i would like to say something about the Afternoon Swim late tonight.

Why exactly the headline....?

Well, for one thing. I wrote a review of Pacific Chill here a few days ago and you can adapt a lot from it. Certain things are almost frighteningly similar (I'll go into 1, 2, 3 things in a moment).

1. This fragrance has such a dreamlike + beautiful opening and without fibbing = it is one of the most beautiful ever (for me).
2. After that it is very linear, almost too simple and interchangeable.
3. Its lack of performance!
4. Its price...

The Pacific Chill also has these 4 problems.

I would like to address 3 points here.

1. The fragrance:

fresh, fruity, sparkling, citrusy, pleasant for the warmer days, clean! The mix of orange, mandarin and bergamot and the dash of ginger = perfect for opening!
2. The performance:

To be honest, I don't expect a fragrance for warmer days to last 10h or 14h, but 7h or 8h should be enough, like a working day... . But if I get 4h or 5h ONLY, then I find it somehow very sad and somehow shameful for the company LV that they sell something like this...
(Personal opinion)

I don't always want to use Molecule 01 so that I can get in the direction of the 7h to 10h, yes that works very well!
3: The dear money / the purchase price:

I am PITY to talk about whether a purchase makes sense or not, in this respect it is very relative and my views may not be like yours and vice versa... . From a purely commercial point of view (which I am, among other things), I can say that the purchase of the Afternoon Swim is not justified (for me!). When you see what it offers + the durability and at the end the price tag = then I can only openly dishonestly say no!

I think it's great = for 10 minutes, after that I don't need it and that's one of the reasons why I don't have any fragrances from the brand. 1, 2, 3 are good, but the H/S and then the price... nope.

BUT the bottles, the lid + the sprayers are great!
At the end of the day, everyone has to decide for themselves whether yes or no!
And now have a nice day/evening, or whatever you read this review, LG the Benny

A short but wonderful olfactory experience
In my opinion, this is the third best scent for summer from LV after Imagination and Pacific Chill. You really have this fruity and fresh scent perfectly combined in this fragrance and you really have this light vibe of the sea in your nose.

It suits all events and it also fits into everyday life, as it is not too heavy but not too light either. This effervescence simply gives this fragrance a unique touch and that's why it's one of the best summer fragrances for me.

The only drawback is really the hold time. You really should spray it on again after a few hours to keep the scent in your nose.

A beautiful, short-lived, citrusy orange. That’s all it is. That’s all you need to know.

Photorealistic orange cologne behind a chlorinated sheen. Dry-down introduces more sensual, salty skin aspects much more intimate in scale.

Divine, incredibly good citrus scent. However, terrible performance. Did 15 sprays with sample. Miniscule projection but 8 hours longevity.

This is a quality pure citrus scent that is great for summer use. The fact that it takes us to summer is spectacular.

It does remind me a lot of Simone Andreoli fragrance but it is. more fizzy and lighter take on it. Longevity could be a bit better though.
