The white soul of Cerutti 1881
I deem I am fond of Cerutti's colognes, given that I do have the original 1881 (reformulated) and all of its flankers. Edition Blanche, in my opinion, is the white soul of the original 1881, a fresher and more aromatic interpretation of the original and belonging to the group of green-fougere scents. If you find the honey fougère of the original too old school and in your face, this flanker settles that issue for you. It's a spin-off of the original in spirit, but with a thin ozonic layer that makes it instantly modern, futuristic even. It goes on light but wraps you in an aura that is perceived by others without overwhelming them.

About the scent, it opens with a cocktail of Italian citrus fruits, namely orange mandarin and bergamot peels refreshed with a slight dose of mint leaves and strengthened with a touch of aldehydes, which are more prominent on a paper strip. In this phase, White is far away from its ancestor. Whereas the original is citrus-resinous due to the balsamic cypress influence, Blanche is rich in citrus-minty accords and lacks the berries sourness and bittersweetness that has been moved in the heart.

Influenced by the barbershop spirit of men’s perfumery, lavender is infused over rosemary, characteristic of Italian aromatic herbs. This twosome is enhanced by the fruity blackcurrant berries, resulting in a heart that ain't too much green or herbal yet pleasingly aromatic and lasts all the way down, giving the profile a keen and natural quality that feels anything but cheap. Besides, the heart leaks the gasoline-like resemblance that some people captured in the 1881 original.

Inspired by its forefather, the base is distinguished by a warm synthetic oakmoss, this time complemented with cedar and amber woody tones. It then settles down with woodsy notes and becomes really soapy. As it ages, it develops a fougère touch under the freshness, but its quality remains lighter and harder than 1881, having lost the powdery sweetness of the original.

Personally, this is a kind of mine as it reminds me of laundry cleanser, something like some sheets washed and hung on the line under the sun. If you are anything like me, and like lavender and rosemary combo, and have no reluctance against soapy scents this will be a winner for you. This is a bright, citric scent suitable for warm seasons of the year, spring is better, with moderate sillage and longevity, good for workdays as well as weekdays.
It is worth it, definitely not a clone of the original yet with a similar vibe.
