My role model 1872 for Men
For a long time again a comment from me. But if the statements become too long or the maximum number of characters too small, it has to be :)
Now I tested all 3 - the original "1872 for Men" and the dupes "Vivid Flame" and "Summer 1872". Vivid Flame is a really good green, slightly smoky vetiver fragrance with a slight freshness - but not a dupe by Clive Christian (maybe from 1872 Vetiver?). I have had a 7er-Samplepack at Alexandria Fragrance, Summer 1872 is one of them and has, like many other scents of them, something chemical, plastic-like in the prelude. But perhaps this is also due to the plastic spray heads or to synthetic fragrances-no idea... But Summer 1872 is a very good dupe after this funny opening note. In my opinion the performance is even better than the original. It starts plastic-like-floral-green, whereby the unpleasant note soon gives way. Then it smells of bitter citrus peel mixed with a flowery herbaceous green aroma. All in all from the heart note really very close to the original. I don't find either fruity-if, it's really just fruit peel. You know, when you peel the citrus fruit and it splashes against you this harsh breathtaking haze. Then it remains consistently harsh, green (plants, herbs, vegetables) and flowery. All in all a not so funny colleague, rather a classic, unromantic fragrance. Through the flowery one ladies can also wear it, but I would not put it up voluntarily for my wife. You know, unromantic and all.
I could almost copy the same commi at Clive Christian now. Only the top note is much more natural and beautiful there. No, the Dupe really can't get close to its role model, its bigger muscles don't help it either.
I was not convinced by Dupe of Alexandria Fragrance. Everyone was very close, many had a very good performance. But either the top note or the thought of wearing a bold copy took the fun out of the whole thing. I don't really find the prices to be a convincing argument, especially for the less pretty flacons. But everyone should know that for himself.
