Flowers for men
Dear flower friends,
today is about Reflection Man, the current number 4 on Parfumo, from the house of Amouage. Again and again this fragrance appears in numerous YouTube videos and aroused my interest. I have my sample now a little longer and have, to be able to really do justice to the fragrance, RM more often checked on heart (note) and kidneys. So let's get to the fragrance:
RM starts with a pleasant, spicy bitter orange leaf, which is dominated quite quickly by neroli. The neroli note, extremely present, but does not bring 4711 associations. Further on, the fragrance unfolds a floral miscellany with subtle sweetness, which probably comes from the iris. Following that, sandalwood and a subtle cedar quickly take center stage, joining the sweet floral bouquet. RM doesn't really have a fragrance pyramid in my opinion. Too quickly the fragrance develops through the notes, although this does not bother me much.
The repeatedly made comparison to Le Male is definitely justified, however, RM is not synthetic, less sweet and has instead of the Le Male in the center, annoying me tonka bean a nice wood to show. Fragrance twins are the two thus not at all, they merely have parallels, whereby RM comes off better with me.
Since I probably have a sample of the current batch and also only know this, I can not report much on performance drops. But the fact is: RM performs with me neatly. The shelf life is a good 8 hours, the sillage is not extreme, but can be seen. Two hours projects the fragrance even in small quantities neatly from the wrist, before he becomes more discreet, but still clearly perceptible.
The bottle is really very nice, there is nothing to complain.
All in all, I like RM quite well, but does not knock me off my feet. Nevertheless, a solid, masculine floral fragrance that I can imagine wonderful in the spring.
Thanks for reading!
