A discrete dark spicy leathery fragrance to enjoy with Tchaikovsky
This is clearly an Oriental fragrance, quite aromatic, spicy and just a bit sweet.
It opens very spicy. In the middle notes you get a fantastic leather tamed by the omnipresent spices, mainly cardamom in this phase (the type of cardamom present in La Nuit de L'Homme).
In the base notes the strong leathery facet is consolidated with amber and herbs for an above average drydown (pleasure & longevity).
Performance is average with 6~8 hours longevity with 2 sprays in the back of my hand. Sillage is good enough for 5~6 feet with a projection of 1,5 hours.
Leather is not an easy note. Raw skin doesn’t smell so good due to the tanning process. The scent may be just to animalic. Fashion leather presents a reodorized scent, perfumed with essential oils, and that practice is actually what today describes our notion of of the current pleasant leather smell. That effect is usually rendered by birch tar (that made famous Cuir de Russie) or by synthetic isoquinolines that emulate the agreeable part of the natural tanning smell. Essential oils of civet, musk and amber may also be used.
1881 Signature gives us an extraordinary smooth, non offensive, dark and tanned leather. This is the type of leather I prefer and that we find in the stronger Tuscan Leather, Leather Oudh, Wild Leather, and others. The well behaved part of this scent evokes, to me, the Maison Martin Margiela Jazz Club fragrance.
You must wear it among people who like strong scents. Most people will love your sillage but may become uncomfortable with close proximity due to the smoky, tary, asphaltic kind of scent, even if a smooth one. I just love it. You should use it in classy parties, weddings, classy clubs or alone for your own pleasure. It's a marvelous perfume in the proper occasions. If you layer it with pineapple you will get a vibe of the Aventus smoky batch.
I love dark fragrances and this one is very good indeed, and the best 1881 for me.

Fragrance of noble at the savings fox price
Because of the positive comments, I "indulged" in it. Thick quotation marks, because you can hardly get a detergent for the price.

1881 starts very tarry for the first time, reminiscent of tires that were tortured a bit too much in the curves. But this quickly disappears and what remains is a surprisingly fine, almost dainty scent - which, however, is still smoky, powdery and above all masculine.

Smell it directly on the skin and after some time you will notice it - but I would say that the durability is not so high. But if you let them near you, they will smell an extremely fine, balanced scent that seems to merge with the skin and does not change its characteristics.

It is the smell of Hell's brimstone if Hell had a smell
No, no, no... I'm kidding you. 1881 Signature is so damn good!
To be frank, as an EDP concentration I expected higher longevity and huge projection, which did not happen and that disappointed me a bit. Nevertheless, reapplying the scent more times lets me revisiting over and over again the intriguing and obscure leather accord, and that compensate that lack. It is all about soft and spicy leatheriness.

1881 Signature bottle evokes the original one, this time the numbers are engraved in the opaque black back while the rest is crystalline, thought the scent is not a flanker, yet a brand new spicy, coppery, and dark leather scent. It opens up with bitter juicy grapefruit, topped with freshly grated nutmeg and a tad of spicy black peppercorn. The cypress is not over-topping but gives a balsamic and calming effect to the scent.

Well, the initial whiff is a bit boozy, but then it moves onto a blend of oriental notes of green cardamom, pitchy labdanum, and extraordinary obscure and tanned leather. The leather in here is full of darkness, loud, rough, it is the idyllic smell of Hell's brimstone if Hell had a smell, a kind of freshly made black asphalt with the liquid hot tar turning into the solid pitch. I am not saying it smells bad at all, rather the enigmatic leather is intoxicating and sublime! Weird enough, birmstone is a component that doesn't easily conform to one's idea of something pleasant, less alone fragrant. Yet believe me, at this stage the scent is really enjoyable and a real compliment getter, a kind of leather I have never smelt before.

The leather accord stays longer in the background before the scent begins spreading oriental notes of fumy vetiver, woody pepper tree, mild patchouli, and smooth amber.

The fusion of the aforementioned notes creates a warm aroma that gives it best during cold weather, late autumn and winter are perfect times for wearing it. Most people will prefer it for clubbing, dates, and nights out, however, I am wearing it since this morning and nothing was wrong with it. Elegant, bold, and modern, 1881 Signature is ideal for dudes in their late 20 and over.

Have fun,
Elysium
