The Forgotten First Born
Nino Cerruti will probably know most of the people from 1881 pour Homme, Image pour Homme or maybe CerrutiSi. The fact that the label already in the end of the 70s with Nino Cerruti pour Homme probably cut out its best fragrance, probably the very few have on the screen. I had noticed it myself only recently and was able to integrate it into my collection and test it as a mini.
I can't remember that the bottle got into my fingers or under my nose at that time, but I rather had a déjà vu with the eye-catching cardboard box.

What is also striking is that this eau de toilette was designed for its time extraordinarily advanced - especially through the combination of green to spicy and fruity contents. Somehow I feel like sniffing out some banana or even banana leaf. A pinch of cinnamon could've gotten in there, too. Later on, the double team of Jasmine and Oak Moss took the reins and made NCpH a cuddly-warm Italian seducer, with a reserved sweetish charm, which at that time certainly had its justification as a business as well as a night scent.

The whole thing is accompanied by a slightly pleasantly soapy background noise, which, however, causes a slight weakness of the fragrance overall. In spite of the solid construction it might seem a bit one-dimensional and uninspiring over a longer period of time.

The comparison with Givenchy's Insensé is a bit flimsy, for the latter also has a similarly refined sweetness, but the Frenchman is far more flowery, while the Italian sweeps out the spicy-woody aspects.

It's a shame that Nino Cerruti was hired for Homme, because that's exactly the kind of character the world of scents needs. But they will probably demand too little back, because unfortunately they have long since been forgotten ...

Aromatic green woody scent with some floral aspects and a sufficient dose of late 70s quasi animalic dirtiness. I adore such niche creations

Acrid, dark, animalic, extremely masculine, unique blend that is difficult to understand by today's references.
