C like leather
For those who don't know: Clive Christian makes no simple Wässerchen, he makes proper olfactory announcements. Whether they are now really original or worth their absolutely high price is again another story.
Meanwhile, the British noble brand has launched over 100 fragrances, with the most famous definitely "No. 1 for Men" should be, if only because it is considered the most expensive perfume in the world in the limited special edition. But this is not only due to the contents, but especially to the extremely strictly limited bottle of gold and diamonds.
"C for Men" eats against it almost a quiet and boring shadowy existence. Nevertheless, it has its justification, because it offers an interesting further development to the three years older "Tuscan Leather" by Tom Ford and a welcome alternative for all those who said fragrance is a little too raspberry-heavy.
Here dominates the first spray immediately the leather - beautiful rough, patinated, sublime and relatively natural effect. In addition, a whole lot of accessories such as resins, spices, heavy flowers and dark woody and smoky notes. With the complexity, it's hard to locate the individual ingredients. Yes, even a very fine touch of raspberry is included, but rather in a homeopathic dose.
What I miss, however, is a small twist or exciting development in the further course. With this density of impressions in the smallest space, the experience remains quite straightforward. Well, there at most the fragrance becomes a little softer with time in the usual way and amber, vanilla and especially tonka bean increasingly set the tone, if the contained leather has not already anchored its way into the synapses.
Goes but ok - you should just know what you get.
And that would be just a feisty leather banger with all sorts of soft undertones and otherworldly durability.
