Soft, Supple Leather...
Etienne Aigner No.1 opens with a nose tingling bergamot and lemon tandem at the fore with warm nutmeg spice support spiked with some of the mossy green oakmoss enhanced leather from the base immediately detectable. As the composition moves to its early heart, the citrus vacates as the oakmoss and relatively smooth leather tandem now dominates, with slightly sweet sandalwood and woody patchouli joining in, and the nutmeg spice also remaining from the open adding oregano-like marjoram to the overall well-blended mix. During the late dry-down remnants of the smooth oakmoss enhanced leather remain, but the sandalwood and woody patchouli now take the fore through the finish, with trace elements of the warm nutmeg spice still detectable. Projection is below average, but longevity is excellent at around 12 hours on skin.

No.1 definitely is a leather of the mid 70s to mid 80s in the way it is so classically structured with liberal use of real oakmoss, real sandalwood and dry woody patchouli. They just don't make them like this anymore, and it is a damn shame. One thing that is a bit different from other leathers of its great age, like the also excellent Arrogance pour Homme, is No. 1 really does not project much. This is not a powerhouse composition, but rather a supple, warm spiced leather one could easily wear to the office even now without the slightest hesitation of offending anyone, while not sacrificing uniqueness, quality ingredients, nor stellar composition blending and structure. Super-hard leather lovers may find the smoothness of this leather presentation a bit safe for their liking, but in the case of this writer it hits a bullseye in being "just right." The bottom line is the sadly long since discontinued and extremely rare Etienne Aigner No.1 is an exceptional classically structured leather of its time, earning an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and an easy recommendation to any vintage lover who can get a hold of a bottle, mini or otherwise. They just don't make them like this anymore, regrettably.
