A Perfect Alchemy Of Contrasts
The noun fusion comes from the Latin word "fundere," which means to melt, so fusion is the act of blending things. In science, fusion is the process of fusing atoms to create energy. Fusion is also used as an adjective. Fusion cuisine is the combination of at least two different ways of cooking. Fusion music is usually the combination of jazz and rock. And then comes the Fusion cologne, a variety of deep citrus, aromatic and woody accords, a fusion of physical strength, and the delicate and sensual side of a man.
Byblos Fusion is a modern and elegant fragrance in which contrasts blend in an alchemy of fresh and lashing notes, intense and aromatic, exotic and reassuring. A fusion that has gone miserably unnoticed, and that's a real shame. Yes, because it lacks nothing to be a popular fragrance. The bottle is immaculate, with its square and rigorous lines, the glass is thick with a forged thin metal label on it, the brand and keynotes engraved, and a cap that is also covered with metal. Weirdly, there are two versions of the plate, showing oud and guaiac, respectively. Inside, it encloses the coldness of the metal and the teal color of the fragrance, the creation of Fabrice Pellegrin's nose, beautiful to see and smell. I got a 100ml bottle in 2013 when it came out on the market, and it immediately impressed me. It is one of those scents that remains among the first fragrances you think of when you remember your favorite or pleasant scents. And now I have repurchased it because it is good, with particular nuances that distinguish it from the others. A 50ml bottle cost me nearly €12, which is a steal for an EDP!

The first perception of the perfume brings out the citrus notes. I am wrapped with distinctive orange zest and lashing bergamot, which provides its sweet aroma with notes of tartness and acidity, combined with the flowery, watery, and fruity notes of litchi for a lovely freshness that captivates. It is not the usual citrus accord you can find in eau de cologne; instead, it is a more balmy zesty accord with aromatic shades.

The vibrant top notes take on a more decisive character as soon as the heart notes composed of the wild flavor of black pepper emerge, accompanied by the aromatic rosemary and green notes of Mediterranean geranium, for a forceful, subtle and refined contrast. I admit this is the stage I love most. The savory accord dominates; it is misty thanks to a morsel of metallic violet leaves (alpha-iso methyl ionone), with the zestiness shifted in the background and light shades of woodiness growing in the fore.

On the base notes, the fusion of sensuality and strength takes place thanks to the unmistakable presence of agarwood, mitigated by the soothing creaminess of sandalwood and the virile sensuality of patchouli, all softened by the delicate notes of sensual musk. I also catch the smoky accents of the guaiac wood, not mentioned. Still, it doesn't lose the pepper throughout its life. The dry-down is sweet, minty, as the ointment that cures almost everything (aka Tiger Balm).

Byblos Fusion is not a niche quality, but it is versatile and welcomed by everyone I have been in contact with when wearing it. Despite its quirky ingredients that may initially suggest it might create divisions, I accept that some don't like this type of perfume, but I think most would appreciate it if they didn't love it. I consider this to be a warmer season's fragrance, office, or casual daytime scent. The most dominant notes that always stand out to my senses are the citrus fruits in the opening, the orange, particularly the rosemary peppery in the heart, but the dry base is guaiac wood and oud. The performance I get is also quite good. On my skin, I get about a day, and it stays on clothes for a long time, with the first two hours having a solid projection, which is enough for a daytime scent. I like the idea behind this. The smell is nothing groundbreaking, but it's different from anything I own.

I based this review on a 50 ml bottle I have owned since April 2021.
