Country roads, take me home to the place I belong!
There are top fragrances, both older and newer ones, which stand out like stars or icons from the perfume mosaic of many brands. It is much more difficult with the different series and collections within the brand labels. Really good series that leave no single fragrance behind are rather rare. Even though other perfumers may have other collections in mind, for me this includes above all the "Gentleman's Collection" by Aramis. The latter includes Havana, Tuscany per Uomo, New West, J-H-L, Aramis 900 and Devin! This fragrance, Devin from Aramis, an eau de cologne with the addition of country, will be the subject of the following article!
Now I don't really know what a Country Eau de Cologne is and if it is meant to underline the good shelf life and silage of Devin, which reminds me much more of an EdT or EdP than a cologne. In my case, the addition of the word country rather nourishes the colloquially inherent meaning of the word, which also fits almost perfectly with Devin from Aramis and which could also well characterize the wearers who like to reach for this cologne.
The country music of the old warriors like Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, but also the fresh and cheeky Dixi Chicks and the Nashville Grand Ole Opry stand for this. For me, country also stands for freedom, adventure and self-realization, the Marlboro Man and Prince Charles, the vastness of Arizona and the rugged Scottish Highlands, for horses and land rovers, for tweed and cowboy hats, as well as for subtle, spicy-moossy fragrances with a classic, masculine expression!
Devin combines all these facets in one expressive creation. Starting very fresh and citric, but retaining a certain lightness, soon greenish-bitter notes with a lot of fine spice prevail, from which cinnamon and herbaceous impressions stand out. Strict, flowery chords and a touch of bath salts (pine) join in. Everything is finely composed and tuned to the most pleasant. The fragrance is now strong and masculine but is also highly recommended for women who feel comfortable in jeans, with a western hat or on horseback.
Since the fragrance components also rely on harmony in the further course, nothing is really biting. Not even the green and woodsy, light rot comes to the fore as balsamic, woody tones join an earthy and moosy base in which the spices lose their power but are gradually complemented by leathery and slightly smoky, seductive warmth.
All in all, Devin is a lush fragrance, especially for a cologne that doesn't need loud and catchy country music to make itself and the wearer noticeable. Nevertheless, it is truly perfect, illustrating the lightness and carefreeness inherent in the perfume, which make the fragrance, despite its pithiness, an "evergreen" and "all-time master"!
