About this deal

After having owned a miniature size of Versace's Pour Homme Dylan Blue for a couple months, I'll say that the fresh spicy citrus nuances in both are truly in the same vein. They both contain pepper, grapefruit, bergamot, patchouli, and musk. And though they have distinctive notes apart from one another, I believe they don't go too far off from one another in the end. The issue I have is that it has some of the worst performance I've experienced. The sillage is a little beyond a skin scent after minutes of application. And the longevity is underwhelming to the point that after 30 minutes to a hour it kind of disqualifies itself from having longevity due to how weak the scent is at that point. The concentration of this seems to be that of a Cologne. Unless you love to smell it, I couldn't recommend this. Cue the current 2020's era and the entire Adidas line reappears. I wasted no time buying both the body wash and EDT. There's definitely been a formulation change, as the opening is now much better than I remember, with a complex mix of fresh, citrus, aquatic and powder aromas. However, it is also very much missing that distinctive sea salt note. Without it, there really is nothing that sets this apart from other fresh blue style fragrances on the market. FYI, I also notice that sea salt note missing from the body wash as well despite it being listed in the ingredients. This is nice smelling frag, very fresh and very well blended. Yet it is synthetic and yes it is not sophisticated nor it is bold either. Adidas Ice Dive was one of the first colognes I ever used. In the prior early 2000 formulations under COTY, I actually used all the Adidas body washes, body sprays and colognes and Ice Dive was by far my favorite of the lot. It had a distinctive sea salt note that was very pleasant and set it apart from other products at the time. Then the entire line seemed to disappear.

If used with Shower gel after a workout - it leaves a very nice, calming effect. One could use this before going to sleep, due to the fact that it is soothing. Silage - Again poor. Moderate only when you apply many many sprays... but then it lasts for a short time.The Adidas Victory league and Ice Dive were my very first fragrances when I was 9 years old. I remember both of them being really nice as a 9 year old kid does 😂 PS. If you are looking for some sporty fragrances I would recommend Whisky Sport, or some of NIke (De ruy perfumes) colognes, they offer sporty and longer lasting fragrances. It is a cheap and nice smelling Frag. Yet I am not sure why, but this is extremely watered down. I have to agree that it lasts for about 1 hour and then vanishes instantly. Terrible performance -- extremely weak in particular on projection and sillage that even overspraying doesn't help solve I remember that Ice Dive used to smell exactly like Bleu de Chanel to me, but now it just smells very aquatic in a synthetic way and even somewhat metallic. I don't like it anymore.

Scent - Its actually pretty nice. It's fresh and a little minty. It doesn't smell too synthetic and could potentially fool someone into thinking it's more expensive than it is, if the longevity and scent weren't so terrible that is.It starts off with a spicy (Anise) bombardment of sweet (Mandarin Orange, Yuzu) and sour/bitter citrus (Grapefruit, Bergamot). The Grapefruit and Kiwi give it a sweet and tangy opener. Mint hangs on through the scent's evolution, keeping it clean. Lavender wraps everything up with that classic soapy smell. Immediately afterwards you get a potent green and/or earthy (Patchouli) and floral (Geranium) vibe. Then even more immediately afterwards you get a flagrant body spray (musk) and salt (the ambergris) with pepper. So, a balance of sweet, sour, salty, spicy notes with freshness. The main accords my nose gets is: fresh spicy, aromatic, and citrus. The scent itself gets a 7/10. It could work as something to have in a gym bag, but please remember that it does not last at all, meaning that it will not interfere with your evening smell later on.
