Defy represents the dusty and woody current, synthetic to the point of toothache. It’s some kind of imitation in the style of YSL Y, Sauvage or Invictus, but worse….
For a moment, the first ten minutes, it defends itself with bergamot in a fairly natural style, but even this bergamot is immediately presented on tons of the cheapest, chemical ingredients. After that, there is the drama of the lowest shelf.
