Watch where you touch...!
Hello folks, I would like to introduce to you today the fragrance "Oro 1920" by Bois 1920. As written here on Parfumo, the meaning of oro is something that mankind has been enthusiastic about from the beginning and still is. It is something that drives many crazy and for which probably at least half of all wars were waged, or something like that. It's gold!

The shiny, rustproof metal. Too soft and tender to forge weapons or tools from, but because of its beautiful shine for millennia it has always been desired and valuable... well, yes, soft, desired and valuable,... like a woman... bah, always these women,... these beasts! D

Anyway, gold makes a lot of people go crazy and do stupid things. Even in the legends there are gold-addicted people who have gone down in history through stupidity, like King Midas, who wished to be able to turn everything into gold by touching it. It was too bad that he wanted to masturbate and turn his best piece into gold! By the way, the Austin Powers movie "Goldständer" is loosely based on this!
Wait... None of this is true, you say? All right... he turned his daughter into gold by accident... but his deed shows what gold can do. And yes, I babble again one nonsense after another, but seriously, do you still wonder about this with me at all?

Well, anyway, I'm going to get the scent!

The fragrance:
The beginning is quite unusual. Because on the one hand one smells intensive raspberries, and on the other hand strong leather. The combination somehow looks like licking fruit ice cream in a shoe shop and standing next to expensive and leather-scented leather shoes, while the salesman stares at you in the dark because he assumes that you could put the ice cream in one of the shoes (... yeah the world is evil! :D).
After a short while the intensive leather gets a bit weaker, or let's say softer, because it still smells good. In addition, there are now also woody notes, as it begins to smell of pine trees and therefore what the given fir balm must be. The woody notes, which also germinate, go well with this.
Only a little bit later, resinous fragrances (Opoponax) are added, which go wonderfully with the woody fragrances and woods as well as the leather.
Very much later the fragrance remains as usual. However, it is now much softer, otherwise you can still perceive forest notes such as pine, leathery scents, resins and woods (guaiac). The leather notes are sometimes weaker and sometimes stronger and seem to alternate in their intensity with the pine scents, at least this seemed to me for a while. All in all a nice leather fragrance with woody, soft notes that fits well in autumn and winter.
Later on the leather is weaker, most fragrances are actually weaker to be able to say what would smell the most intense. But everything smells together beautifully resinous and now also sweetly nice. All in all a beautiful fragrance.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite strong and intense, so that for a while it will certainly be quite well perceived on you. The shelf life is also enormously long, because sprayed in the morning I could still perceive the fragrance the next morning very weakly on the skin.

The bottle:
The bottle has the cylindrical shape known from most Bois 1920 bottles, except that it looks like brushed gold and is therefore luxurious and valuable (but not showy!). On the bottle there is only the name of the brand on it, which has been noticeably incorporated into the bottle. The wooden lid is black and carries the logo on the top. A very nice bottle for me.

Okay, so first of all I have to say that the scent doesn't remind me of gold in any way. Well, I don't even know if gold has a scent at all, but if it did, I would associate it with something cool.
But of course all this doesn't matter, because the name of the fragrance can be related to the gold-plated bottle. The scent itself smells of leather and forest, as well as soft, resinous scents. I like the fact that the leathery notes, of which I'm usually not that much of a fan, are softened by resins like opoponax and (for me) come across more fragrant.

All in all, Oro 1920 is a beautiful leather fragrance, which is good for autumn and winter both as a day and as a night fragrance (for all sexes) and where both leather lovers and all those who like me can normally do less with leather could sniff in.

And sorry to all ladies, because I called you beasts again, but admit it, you are beasts. Even Lucy van Pelt from the Peanuts is happy in one of the comics that she and her brother have agreed on an agreement according to which she can determine how she can be atmospheric in the year, as she would torture her little brother too often. They say that Lucy can be beastly about 80 days a year (I think). Among other things, the "contract" also stipulates that she may have 5 "under all sow days", of which she takes advantage immediately and knocks off her little brother. Afterwards she is happy that this agreement will be great and especially that she would not even have started her 80 beastly days :DD
So it's in your blood, ladies, to let the beast out and torture us guys,... aaargh, what have I done to deserve this... *sigh*) :DD

My #1 Leather
In the realm of Tuscan Leather "alike" leathers, this reigns as #1. Incredibly rich and refined. It lacks the smokeyness and rough edges that are present in Tuscan Leather. At one time this fragrance was near $900 and now it is much more affordable in the $175 (discounted sites) and $340 (Barneys) range. If you are a leather addict like I am, this should be in your collection and chances are, it will be your most loved as well.

10/10 in all categories.

Soft and creamy smoke. "Tuscan Leather" -like raspberry note appears from time to time. But smokey notes prevail.
