Wow! TFs Italian Cypress as a cologne...
I'm not kidding, this is really close to Italian Cypress - not quite as heavy, but still packing a greath oomph! with cypress and oakmoss upfront, just made a little fresher with hints af spearmint mixing in. Herbal, mossy and woody all in one. If you're digging the original vintage RL Polo, this one also has some similarities. 1962 may be listed as unisex, but is straight up masculine IMO.

A green and chypre-like beautiful coniferous gentlemans fragrance with great longevity.

The year was 1962...
This wasn't my first foray into the house of Floris London, but i continue to be impressed by the quality I encounter with each sampling. 1962 comes with a certain amount of cred so here I give my thoughts...

A Fine Return to Form for Floris...
1962 opens with a brief dash of sharp citric orange bergamot and deep clove spice before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition reaches its early heart the bergamot vacates, leaving remnants of the clove in support of an unveiled natural smelling spearmint leaf and co-starring coniferous green, woody cypress, with hints of underlying oakmoss and just slightly sweet amber rising from the base. During the late dry-down the mint and clove completely vanish, leaving the remnants of the cypress and amber now in support of the oakmoss that takes the fore, additionally supported by an emergent slightly sharp cedar wood through the finish. Projection is very good, as is longevity at 10-11 hours on skin.

1962 is a composition that has been making its way into "hidden gem" perfume conversations for a while, but alas, I confess it eluded me until recently. Now having worn it a few times I understand what the excitement is all about. The perfume has been frequently compared to Italian Cypress by Tom Ford, and indeed the two share a couple key notes. That said, I think 1962 not only smells quite different than Italian Cypress, it also is a *heck* of a lot better smelling. For one, it has an outstanding spearmint leaf note in its heart that could easily prove problematic but instead melds perfectly with the coniferous woody cypress that never dominates it, rather paring together to form a quite pleasant and also unique overall accord through the heart that brilliantly bridges modern and classic perfumery. The more classically structured late oakmoss and cedar wood led dry-down is no less compelling or skillfully implemented than the rest of the composition's fine development. In truth, while maybe not quite at the masterpiece level, there really isn't a weakness from top-to-bottom. The bottom line is the $190 per 100ml bottle 1962 is a pleasant surprise that marks a much needed modern resurgence to form from the IFRA ravaged Floris classic offerings, earning an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and a solid recommendation to all.

Modern classics
Floris labelled this scent as citrus woody. Well, pretty much, but it is perhaps more than that. Fougere, touch of green, woody scent is more certain.

The fragrance journal, 1962, Floris tries to reimagine a classic, which probably quite a work cut out to do in this perfumery business, given that people nowadays prefer more sweet, mass appealing, unisex fragrance than others.

1962, from the opening, bursts with zesty green mandarin, citrusy, herbal and medicinal. Clove plays its part, giving a musty 'old' vibe to the scent. The woody cedar and mossy moss quickly join the party, providing an earthy like smell, as if a small plant being plucked out from soil, where you could smell the fresh dampness of the soil from its roots. Heck, is that Bracken Man? Similar, but no. For me at least, this is lighter and fresher.

Cypress soon steals the show, together with lily of the valley and jasmine, they create an uplifting vibe. Spearmint and musk lend their hands to provide a fresh, minty, a bit smokey and more fuller cypress through out the wearing. At this part, everything is fresh, green and well, to put it together; "cypress-y".

The drydown is smooth, crisp and creamy. Amber really adds depth and a bit sweetness (this is not a sweet scent, though) to the scent during the drydown.

Woody, classy yet sophisticated. Brewed by Floris for the true gentlemen.
