Powdery and spicy...
Opening with bergamot & citrus, after about 20 minutes enters the drydown with lots of lavender, clary sage with a shot of geranium, cedar and fern thrown in the mix.
The base consists of oakmoss, tonka and some musk.
To me it seems strong in projection and very traditional. If you're into early 80s types of masculine soapy scents, this could be for you.

The next good one from the kipper zone....
The brand Aigner I got to know the other day - even before the lockdown - at my regular drugstore, when I was namely again on a journey of discovery through the so-called. Bückwaren fragrances have been going. I was not aware that it was an American house. Intuitively, I had but first thought of Switzerland, sounded or sounds the name for me at least (for whatever reason) after the beautiful Switzerland ...

Anyway. Really solid and for little money very neat fragrances can be found under the brand in any case. The No.1 series bspw. I find very successful; all astreine, clean and pleasant treasures without big ballyhoo and other unnecessary fuss. Fresh, smooth, woolly and slightly synthetic they smell. By the way, synthetic must not always be negative connotations, because mMn there are also quite friendly synthetic, which just comes with me and also yes generally the masses often well.
[...]

This Etienne Aigner No. 2 I gave my brother for Christmas, together with the shower gel and aftershave. Although he is otherwise not too big perfume freak like his younger brother, he can still call 3(!) fragrances his own (He thinks I'm totally stupid anyway, that I am registered here and own more than 3 fragrances. And I just grin when he talks to me about it and think to myself "well, if you knew what's going on here..." XD).
Well, and since he's very skeptical of other directions besides fresh-clean, I thought he might like this. Ahead: the fragrance he likes very much.

When I have been over the Christmas days to visit him, he had the EdT on it. And it smells or smelled at him wonderfully beautiful. I myself tested him of course before on me also, but I have decided only now to write a comment.
[...]

The Etienne No. 2 is of the basic character of an aromatic and spicy-fresh clean scent, which I think would like in particular people, the so-called. Barbershop fragrances are inclined.
Right at the beginning you experience this pleasant citrus-fresh tone, which is underpinned with neat intense and spicy-peppery nutmeg. You have to be a lover of this note and I could imagine that one or the other this would be too strong, but I personally find the beginning very masculine and attractive. In addition, I perceive a hint of herbaceous lavender, but this really only rather discreetly in the background.

A short time later, the fragrance is soapy and even slightly powdery for my sensation. The pepper from the beginning steps back and leaves the soap so to speak the stage. One smells virtually as just showered and freshly shaved. This also remains in principle until the base, except for a minimal woody undertone, which I perceive in addition yet, so exist.
[...]

Due to the character and composition, this fragrance definitely has the aura of a signature candidate, I think. Personally, I would probably prefer to wear it in spring or autumn in everyday life or at work. Think especially to these seasons and occasions he can exploit its full potential and shine there so right.

For a fresh fragrance he also persuades in terms of endurance. On my skin I perceive him good 6-7h and especially in the first 2h he shows neat muckis, before he withdraws gentlemanlike little by little.

Conclusion:
I am yesterday then again to my brother and have me a 5ml-TZ of his fragrance bottled, which I also just wear at home. I like him so much that he has sooner or later (latest in the spring) very good chances to move in with me as a bottle. Because for the little money you get a mMn qualitatively pretty good fragrance that goes in one of my preferred directions.

For fans of clean-soapy and peppery men's fragrances, this classic is at least worth a test. Probably many already know him from their fathers, uncles or grandfathers, if they have not worn it then already themselves. For me, however, he is a new discovery and as a classic fan - almost logically - of course a great fragrance.

And certainly this one has also already fallen victim to one or the other reformulation, which I can not judge, however, because I discovered him only recently.

Refos or not - as a whole, I like it very much. And that's what counts.

Thanks for reading!

Pure spice, but ...
...careful. The first impression really surprised me. What rises to a spice in the nose, is almost unique. But has convinced me, because paired with the freshness had this fragrance what. So bought. The price is for this fragrance caliber yes cheap . But, and so it was at least with me, after a few days of use I felt this incredible sillage and durability also as something intrusive. All in all, however, an interesting fragrance with incredible durability!

Number 2 is and remains my number 1
How do I write my first comment on a fragrance for which everything has already been said, and above all competently?

Aigner No 2 is a wonderful classic that has been a reliable companion for over 30 years, my signature fragrance, my alter ego, my olfactory shadow. I love its soapiness, its citric freshness, which at the beginning seems almost TOO exuberant, yes, lemon, lime, lImette, some lavender and bergamot open the lively round dance, only to gradually leave the stage to the aledhydes, clary sage takes the floor, before the Aigner's second one switches down a bit, becomes more powdery and loses some of the sharpness that can be heard at the beginning (at least in the current version).

In the heart note, at the last lap and shortly before the home stretch, the initially shy Laendel is let off the leash after some time and is allowed to tear his T-shirt, accompanied by sandalwood, before, after many hours, peace slowly returns and basil and moss -- don't I hear a little bit of cedar wood? -- turn off the light together.

Even though it has been reformulated from time to time -- Aigner No 2 deserves to be on the market even after 44 years. Unfortunately, this fragrance has seen many of the outstanding Aigner men's fragrances come and go, so it is all the more wonderful that it is the last and only fragrance still allowed to wear the Aigner horseshoe with pride. Everything else from the house of Aigner is not worth mentioning, is cheap-smelling standard peach pudding, where you can see the listlessness and lack of creativity of the perfumers -- or did you let the apprentices get at it? -- remarks. Therefore, Aigner No 2 -- stay as you are and continue to ensure a good mood whenever I wear you! For the next at least 30 years with you! You are a real 70s powerhouse bitch ;-)!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Retro Man!
My name is Retro-Man and my superpower is to sniff the scents of the past And with this thing from Aigner, I'm fully in receive mode! You have to like this soapy-clean old-ladies-sequence ( wood, moss, musk ), otherwise you will find this combination just terrible. There will not be a middle thing: Hate me or love me! Penetrance is the powerful opponent of decency. And this opponent is overpowering.
I tie up my superhero cape, put on my hero mask and proudly raise both my thumbs: Aigner, I like you!

You just take soap
A fragrance is always a very personal thing. Whether you like the scent on your own skin and whether your fellow men like the scent is just not a science. This scent actually has a lot of ingredients, but the soap smell that really overruns everything covers them almost 100%. At least I take only one concentrated soap smell. I actually love old school men's scents with soap in them like Gainsboro or Marbert Man, but I think these scents are just right. Aigner No. 2 exaggerates it for my sense of smell. I advise every prospective customer to spray on this fragrance in a local perfumery and let it work for at least 1 hour before making a purchase decision. I personally advise against a purchase because of the one-sided scent direction.
