Quick help from Isfahan
.... promises the bottle (for frivolous minds) with dysfunctions in the subadominal area. Plainer characters recognize in the form rather the famous fat-baked Kringel from the U.S. called Donut whose designation apparently rather advises against consumption (Do not).
If Bijan Pakzad (shrill and formerly on Rodeo Drive resident fashion designer) had designed the flacon in Tehran at the time of Ayatollah Khomeini` would probably have been proclaimed at that time probably quite quickly the fatwa against him and he would have shared henceforth with Salman Rushdie the bower in London and kneaded erotic articles ... Rushdie has little hair left on his head and Mr Pakzad has since passed away.
Reference to the fragrance: - 0.5.
Bought the fragrance in the souk at a more than fair price from AquaFrisch (Merci), which maintains a decent and almost generous sale and offers its items (unlike many others) not more expensive but (oh God) no cheaper, than in online retail feil offers (applause).....
Bijan for men is, if you take the price into account, a veritable bomb, namely a spice bomb that makes you a dervish at the end of the day, so that the greasy donut almost comes up again. The opening is already quite promising - a soapy, spicy almost fruity start that makes the bobbles on your beaky shoes jingle. At the point is usually referred to the state-certified "thoroughbred perfumers" who can say to the individual notes rather what....
What follows in the DryDown was probably the biggest surprise: Although the fragrance to the vintage version (flacon in the stylized, small "b") was probably significantly trimmed you have for hours what of the sandalwood orgy, which you mistaken for incense. Wow! The, the, the tonka or vanilla that sends most here into ecstatic rapture is used so tastefully and subtly that even the "unsweet purists" don't mind it for a minute.
In short: For the price - a lot of ChaChaCha and no ChiChi at all... One does not even want to know how probably the vintage version (not the one of FiveStarFragrances) has smelled... so and tonight comes "The Masked Singer" in Farsi for study councils ;-)

The 80's was the age of fougères and they occupied the industry as orientals are doing today. And like always, only the nobles survive.
Bijan Men, although is regenerated in 1987, still has considerable charm and class and, in my idea, is one of the most innovative fougères ever that tends to chypre. It's around honey, moss, leather and clary sage. An ultradandy ultrachic heritage. And… among a collection of about 100 perfumes, it is what I wore in my wedding! Still splendid.

Great new acquisition!
It was only by chance that I came to enjoy this great fragrance. Strangely enough, I didn't notice it in the 1980s for whatever reason.

Already the first spray left me with no doubt that this is a fragrance that I like very much. Just my style: woody and spicy. If it comes from the same decade as the once so celebrated "Giorgio Beverly Hills", it is even possible to draw a few scent parallels, even if only marginally. The whole thing seems to me like a very successful mixture of "Terre D'Hermes", "L`Artisan Timbuktu" and a little "Tom Ford Noir Anthracite". Unfortunately I don't know the Vintage Vesion, but this new bottling has already convinced me very much and that at a very slim unbeatable dumping price! Unfortunately, the cap of the bottle needs getting used to and looks like a relic from the 1960s. Owners of the fragrances mentioned here should definitely test it here, if not already done!

Egg-laying pillow
"Bijan Men" was a blind buy, to Oscar de la Renta's "Pour Lui". I love classic masculine powerhouses, at the same time I usually avoid blind purchases, but at the price and hooked on the fragrance pyramid, I could not say no... And I regret nothing!

How does "Bijan Men" smell now? Typically for the time, the fragrance notes are so densely and compactly interwoven that it is difficult to identify individual components. From the beginning, the soapy oak moss is very present, joined by the spiciness of rosemary and nutmeg, sandalwood also plays not exactly restrained. A touch of lavender. Musk and patchouli? Yep, but rather in the base and restrained.
The individual ingredients also do not have to be errochen individually. Their interaction is what gives the full fragrance experience. Dense, somewhat loud and riotous, but at the same time absolutely harmonious. As the fragrance type diagram aptly suggests, there's something here for everyone. "Bijan Men" is for me spicy, fresh, oriental, slightly leathery-smoky, green, minmal earthy, quite animalic, and it fits every season (apart from high summer) to every occasion - the titular egg-laying Wollmilchsau!

...well, the bottle is really on the border of ridiculousness. The glass container with hole is still ok, but this oversized white plastic cap on it does not go at all. Anyway, it's the inner values that count. "Bijan Men" has plenty of those! I am more than happy with this blind purchase.

Superpowerhouse
I have read elsewhere among a forum dedicated to lovers of powerhouses, that Bijan men perhaps is too powerful for its own good (or words to that effect). I disagree. This richness of this fragrance is almost without peer, but it is well balanced and classy. There are so many things going on that it is hard to adequately describe Bijan Men. It ranks alongside Montana parfum d'Homme and Quorum in terms of powerhouse kick. I prefer it to either of them, however. I find it more powerful than the Montana and more complex and less sharp than the Quorum. The musk in Bijan is what separates it from the other two, giving it a more animalistic aspect. For those who like the original Chaps by Ralph Lauren, Bijan, though a later creation is it's big brother. 1981 certainly was an outstanding year for men's fragrances!

A musk dominant composition that smells like Super Hit incense from the Indian incense company Satya Sai Baba. Very comforting. I approve!
