The affordable CEO fragrance
The Aramis, from the brand of the same name, was sent to me as a sample and of course I had to try it out directly. It's a fresh and woody opening scent, which really looks quite mature and has a certain vintage vibe to it.

The performance is really good and he sits down relatively quickly with a fresh bergamot, leather-musky note and stays with it.

I would rather smell this fragrance on a man who is in life and has a strong self-confidence.

From the last millennium....
....this fragrance creation is already and probably even partly clearly older than some perfumers here. That per se demands a shaken measure of respect, since the clear majority of all fragrances disappear sometime in Nirvana. Is such a long existence now good or bad?

I must admit, I am a child of the 80's and yes, I mourn this time regularly. Fortunately, the music of the past has successfully transformed records into mp3 files and old and then incredibly successful series such as Miami Vice still show where the hammer was fashionably hanging. Not all brands/products have undergone a successful transformation in terms of fragrance technology. Some simply disappeared at some point (e.g. Silver by Aigner), others were submerged for a while and would then be reprinted, technical jargon "reformulated", the latter however with extremely different results. Aramis, on the other hand, survived everything.

And I'm surprised at so many positive reviews from especially younger participants here, where I would have the greatest understanding if you would reject the fragrance as old-fashioned. In fact, the fragrance has something from the last centuries/thousand. I bought it for the first time in 1990 and only wore it on special occasions, almost reverently. Raider is called Twix today, nothing changes with Aramis. It is today as it was then this unique, concise, in my opinion male and slightly animal note. And for me one of these representatives, who, the longer he works (with me one working day long), the better (like a good wine). This base note simply burns itself in and remains. Many come to the end with ambry, mossy woody notes, or slightly leathery or finish. Aramis connects them all together in a class combination. Well done.

You don't have to like the scent, but it's an extrovert of its kind. Great cinema and a role model for others according to the motto "that's how it's done".

A true rumble chamber scent
In 1990, the German television broadcasting of the GDR was discontinued and wound up. Not that it would have been a pity on the whole, but unfortunately, as in many areas of the GDR, collateral damage occurred. With the disappearance of East German television, there was also an end to the longest running entertainment programme on television! After not quite 400 episodes and more than 35 years with one and the same presenter, "Willi Schwabes Rumpelkammer" ended as a statement to a new zeitgeist.

Already at broadcasting times the Rumpelkammer was a classic and dealt with classics of film history, mainly UFA productions until 1945, but also others. The lighting was supported by extensive film excerpts, background information, actors, anecdotes and comments on films such as the "Feuerzangenbowle", the old Theo Lingen and Hans Moser films, but also on films such as "Es geschah am hellichten Tag" or "Karbid und Sauerampfer". Film classics, which today unfortunately elicit only a shrug of the shoulders from many!

Well, I'm not one of those who think everything was better before. I know, however, that in the past many things were good and that they would still be good today if one had only left them alone. This applied to childcare facilities and polyclinics in the GDR just as it applies today to diesel technology and nuclear energy!

And of course, in order to finally get the hang of Parfumo, this also applies to perfumes. It's a shame how many good fragrances from past decades have been adjusted or changed. With reference to a new time and new attitude towards life sacrificed exclusively to the profit interests, they have disappeared or become a shadow of themselves! There Aramis EdT shines like a real light figure in the firmament, just now where also Franz, another light figure, sinks into the bribery swamp.

The people, events, things, even scents that were special before times are forgotten. To prevent the harmonization of taste in fashion, food, smell, appearance (Robert Habeck-Bart has never been so much) and political correctness, even with the fear of not belonging to it, angular types, originals and developments that do not profitably implement their arbitrariness on the first day via ratings, Liks and followers.

"It's nice to have the choice", but where is the personal added value of 20 nut nougat creams, 30 types of mustard, 40 toothpastes, 50 types of dog food, more than 100 statutory health insurance companies and ultimately just under 130,000 perfumes? And where is that of Aramis EdT of Aramis?

The perfume Aramis EdT has been around since 1964, the Rumpelkammer since 1955, so Willi Schwabe could have found the scent in the middle of all the film rolls and told us about it. The story tells in a subtle and pointed way that a perfume is more than just a scent and that it also defines itself, besides smell, price and appearance, above all through stories and history. Stories about the bottle, which was already familiar on the console in front of the bathroom mirror during childhood, about the boy who watched his father in the morning toilet on Sunday and the smell in the air. From family celebrations with Uncle Erwin and Grandpa Heinz and from the big brother, who all carried this familiar tart, spicy-moosy aura with them when they dressed up. Also the first own, shy spray would be worth mentioning and the effort to wash off the "stuff" before the father notices something. Even "Uncle Ewald", actually our neighbour and after the death of his wife again at a set age on free feet, tried to land again as an elegant felt slipper casanova with the help of his Aramis and its creamy soapy shaving note. By the way, very successful!

For many, memories and stories, especially when they are not of a personal nature, are not reason enough to try something or even to consider it good. They don't have to! It is important that there are such special things, in the past, today and tomorrow. They earn the title classic simply because they have been used and valued for a long time, just like Aramis EdT.

You must know, you must not miss, BUT
Aramis is indeed a true milestone! A classic and the fuel of the time travel capsule into the 70s and 80s. The scent must have been a mega seller at the time. Only the grandpas and uncles who wore it at the time were already retired in 1980 or shortly before. Half of my father's friends and the entire tarot game wore this fragrance. For me, it's more a smell than a fragrance. Then as a 10 year old and today as a 45 year old. Concise the memory of a friend of the family. Master tailor, 70, check pattern tie and always accompanied by his deified king poodle and his wife, who is diametrically opposed in the sympathetic ranking. After the visit of this team of three we had to ventilate the apartment at least twice as long as their stay. When I was a kid, I used to put the stink on the king poodle. Today I know that the poodle was only partly to blame. The rest went to the master tailor and his Aramis.
"Why is the Musketeer in your collection?"
For many reasons!
Sometimes there are days when I don't want to have sex. Aramis regulates that gloriously! My wife immediately gets headaches and my limb is not functional (king poodle syndrome).
It's very classic when Millenials on the bus free you a seat.
When shopping for a month I am not pressed in the supermarket when sizing the goods on the conveyor belt.
Government appointments run faster.
And the really valuable reason, for me is that:
If my other scents get dull, I'll put on Aramis. After one day of Aramis I find every scent of my collection great!
And only when you know Aramis does the perfume development of the 80's reveal itself to you!

Man is only really dead when no one thinks of him anymore. Bertolt Brecht
I never thought I'd recognize a scent like this Aramis. When I was preschool, I smelled this scent in a lot of people. At my grandfather's and probably at one of my uncles too. Since this perfumer Mr. Chant had also created the Cabochard, my mother, who had died a long time ago, and my grandmothers, who were all carriers of these fragrances, came to my mind. I was aware of the old spice, this really top fragrance from Aramis was not at all. When I had noticed the first steps of fragrances completely carefree and free of any obligations, this Aramis was exactly such a topic, rather not more than hype, but there was probably not really much more in the seventies. It may have been, but it may not have been.
Anyway, this scent has caused me an incredible memory of past times and people, which I didn't think was possible.

I used to find this kind of scent, these predecessors of the Armanis and Azzaros in the eighties, very simple and as I will never actually smell, because for me it was always too far away and too far from pleasant. Life as a toddler was of course completely carefree and one got many impressions and tastes which one believes to have forgotten.
Until you buy the fragrance after long consideration and want to know how to smell a primordial chypre. At the latest then one notices that one has already known this smell........
Then you ask yourself whether you want to wear such a fragrance.
There are quite other fragrances that are already considered classics from their own youth such as Cool Water, Aramis life, Havana, Fahrenheit, Eternitiy for men and or Joop homme.
Then you realize that you can and even have to wear such a fragrance, it sets you apart from the many cotton candy products that are called fragrances today.

This Aramis has nothing but nothing to do with a modern or contemporary fragrance, here the Azzaro looks like an ancient but still good Azzaro like a newcomer.
Nevertheless, this Aramis is fascinating and extremely pleasant.
In summer it is a pleasure to wear such a spice centrifuge with the typical forest felling.
He is miles away from the Habit Rouge, which also appeared at this time, because he cannot be classified as an Oriental.

It reminds me a bit of 4711, but without this extra citrus wrap which you also know from the cleaning cloths at Burger-King. He's a lot of mossy ground. The development initially shows the bergamot mixed with the spicy background. Not bad, not contemporary, not special but very, very good! The only contemporary thing about this fragrance is the bottle, which still looks absolutely sublime today and stands out pleasantly in style from today's phallus bottles or other design experiments like a radio.

It is wonderful, a little sad and above all very sentimental to be able to revive one's own memories of long lost people through such fragrances.

He is different, louder, more self-confident and disturbs the service of the sugar, caramel and lipstick disciples, who would never dare to wear such a dominant and self-confident product.
You might have to take a stand or express your own opinion, that's never the case with the many sweeties, here you can wear whatever you want, without realizing, as with this one, what fragrance it is. Unless you are well trained and recognize the Aventus opposite the club de nuit or the laventure. Perhaps also the diorama homme to the Prada l intense or the Givenchy gentleman.
This comparison is not meant to be a rift, but shows how elitist and equal the fragrant environment of today differs from earlier times.
Somehow we become more and more similar and synchronized in the completely wrong and naïve assumption how unique, different and sovereign each individual has become.

This uniqueness of the past can no longer be felt in the world of fragrances.
Also the strength of this Aramis cannot be compared with the current products, here four splashes are enough for the whole day.
My mother is beautiful, my father but also the first generations are never really dead for me in this way, because I think about them again and again and carry this long gone fragrance epoch proudly on me.

American Juchten
With the "Aus vielen Framen von Harry Lehmann" (From Many Fragrances by Harry Lehmann), which is discussed in detail on these pages, the lover of Harry Lehmann sets off on the search for halfway suitable substitutes. Especially Lehmann's ore classic "Russian Juchten" is now such a chypre hammer with such a strong character that it would be difficult to find even a halfway comparable broadside in the assortment of other manufacturers. Today I (re)discovered a candidate who at least 80% follows this path by chance while sniffing again at the local Galeria-Kaufhof: Aramis Classic!

Strange, in earlier tests I didn't notice the similarity at all, but today - probably unconsciously sensitized to it by the above mentioned restructuring wave at Lehmann - it seemed astonishing to me. The directly connected, domestic AB comparison shows clear differences, but the impression of close relationship remains - which may be due to the fact that this fragrance genre is nowadays only served by a few houses.

Compared to the (probably much older!) "Russian Juchten" Aramis is much less balsamic and soft in head and heart. On the other hand, it appears a little more raw and edgier and is more strongly based on identifiable individual spices such as sage. I feel the resemblance of the two at this point as almost ninety percent. Backwards out (and this "end" is a very, very long one for both!) the differences increase: Aramis clearly points out that he stands on a sandalwood soap base, while "Russian Juchten" becomes more and more creamy, fine and tobaccolike linearly. Only a similarity of about sixty per cent can be observed here. In addition, Aramis does not quite come close to the Berlin space fill monster in terms of Sillage and durability.

Overall, however, I am reassured to have found an at least halfway comparable (and affordable!) alternative - I don't often feel the brutal oakmoss jieper, but when he comes, something must be at hand.

Aramis - Oh Aramis...

I sought this to experience a new male fragrance to enjoy, a leathery one after I had Versace l'homme. Both have a very prominent leathery note. Aramis is a very palpable leather scent with herbal freshness and it is the aldehydes that do this. But now, I have considered this to be a leather, floral scent too.

When I smell Aramis the first thing that comes to mind is the scent of a nude man, a modest man, he is European, he is English, French, Hungarian, Romanian, or Italian, he is nude and carefree, he is a lover and a confident gentleman.

When I smell it, I think of a man's den, it is dark, he has black walls painted, he has leather furniture, a leather chair, a bouquet of flowers adorn it, flowers that would be acceptable in a man's room, gardenias, thyme, sage and clover, they add sweetness to the scent, he has french doors opening to his back garden, you can smell the fresh air, many herbs, and woods, the fresh green outdoors. He keeps his house clean, but not too much, many things still have his personal scent, his sweat lingers in pillow shams and couch, he has myrrh incense he uses occasionally which lingers days after. He has a cat who loves to climb everywhere... his scent also lingers.
It is definitely masculine, clean but not overly clean, flowery, sweet, there is a chocolate like a scent when the leather mixes with the vetiver which can be chocolatey too, the flowers are there, there fresh air and the musk, yes the musk and castor, and also cumin apparently. I can definitely attest to quality and grandeur about Aramis, it is a dignified man's scent, it glorifies him, just as he is, and adorns him. I love the leather note, the resin, the musk, the flowers..it is gentle enough for a woman to enjoy for herself asa personal pleasure.

The third musketeer's scent
Classic, aromatic,rich, classy, timeless: this is Aramis, the historical scent which has the name of the third musketeer of the famous Dumas' novel . A milestone .
The aromatic opening is dominated by an unusual and almost "ladylike" aldehidic note, giving something "vintage" to this perfume.
Then, the flowery-spicy heart accord develops its character with avery classy result . Finally, at the base, a tripudium of warm notes of moss, amber, musk, patchouli and a vibrant and green touch of vetyver.
A perfectly balanced symphony for the gentleman of all times. The longevity and the sillage are good and the simple and almost "old style " bottle always keeps its charm. A great evergreen scent to own and to give .

i like him, but don't like to wear him,
everybody knows that. The exotic coconut note, especially in summer evenings, is extra class.
If there wasn't something every time that almost corrodes my lungs (proper nutmeg + aldehyde ?) and is very exhausting in the long run. Definitely a matter of taste - but still a really good fragrance

He used to be all over his nose
When this fragrance came onto the market, there was still no trace of me - far and wide. Correctly consciously I took this fragrance in the eighties was very common. He must have been one of the best-selling EdT back then, at least that's my impression.

Its prelude is green, bitter, citric and spicy. Thyme plays a big role in the whole and does not get lost down to the base. That was man - at that time: well-groomed and always present; a self-runner par excellence. The spicy notes remain in the further course or supplemented by cardamom, very present also the sage. A little floral resonates through the jasmine. Okay, a little understatement - well balanced. The bitter spice also remains below, now supplemented by amber, tree moss, musk, patchouli, sandalwood and vetiver, which beautifully underline the whole. I don't really notice the coconut. Also the leather goes down, if not immediately, but it is like a scaffold without being a scaffold; well dosed installed so to speak.

It is not so difficult to describe this fragrance in its ingredients. Bergamot, thyme, sage and jasmine dominate. Everything else grinds one facet after the other.

Aramis is a fragrance that, probably because of its age, evokes associations. When I smell Aramis, I see the well-groomed gentleman in the suit, who is in a responsible professional position. I don't see a boss, I see an executive, a banker. In any case, a man who is in personal contact with his customers; the most appropriate would probably be the insurance agent. By that I don't mean the commission-horny guys who appear frequently today, with 21 and a milk face in their sniffy suit, who look a bit unbelievable, if not even ridiculous. By this I mean the type of insurance businessman as he was more frequently encountered in the eighties than today: middle-aged, often still a representative of the experience generation of the Second World War. So someone who has experienced the lack himself and who has developed a feeling for what people really need and what they benefit from in the long run and not what is easiest to talk people into. One whom one opened the door gladly and with firm handshake into the good parlour asked and nobody, whom one with a "I am just deceased, have straight no time sign" at the front door from the body to hold wanted. One who sat on the couch with a thick bundle of papers in his suitcase, but could explain AGB´s and the special features of its products in three sentences. One who used a pen on paper to calculate everything exactly for his customers, where today the laptop is only opened without loving care. One who did not put his customers under pressure because he could be sure that the signature on the contract was a mere formality at the latest after "sleeping over it once". One the customers thought Mr. XY always smells so good. It's only logical that Mr. XY was self-employed, had his own small office in his own house on the outskirts of the city and drove upper middle class from Sindelfingen, Munich or sometimes from Rüsselsheim - of course with upscale comfortable equipment and six-cylinder engines. Also logical that the children of his customers a few years later also became his satisfied customers.

Aramis is the golden mean of its category. He is balanced, not too much exaggerated in detail as for example younger representatives a la Azzaro pour homme or Quorum. Also a little animalistic, without becoming too intrusive, but not as wishy-washy as Cardins Pour Monsieur. He's making a clear statement. It's oldschool without being old school, it's shaving cream without being shaving cream. He is always present without becoming loud and despite his presence he radiates a certain calmness. This must first be imitated by someone - even in the version available today and as certain as the Amen in the Church reformulated.
