Smoky batch
I did not planned to write a review about another Aventus/Aventus Cologne similar fragrance but Floris did here a better job than just copying the popular scent DNAs.

This is a perfume which will start very smoky with this Birch, so famously present in all the possible Aventus talks. There is no pineapple or extreme citrussy character to it when you spray it at first, and will keep a gentleman like profile .. this is not your party fragrance, but also not the conservative No. 89 type of lavender old school barbershop style.

I sprayed twice on my forearm and now hoping for the best, but about 20min in dry down I can sense that it has a better projection than my reviewed Aventus 2021 Batch and in scent it is more similar to the Cologne version than the OG.

For the price, the presentation and the heritage of Floris .. this is a steal and I like that it has its own idea of what a fruity, summery scent should be. The combo of Birch and Lavender makes it unique in its own British way and I will enjoy my bottle to the last drop.

Top release from Floris !

Olfactory masterpiece
First of all: this fragrance is different - different from 1976, different from the other Floris fragrances. But what is it like when it is so different? You'll find the answer at the end of my commentary.
The fragrance starts with a light citrus note, which - unlike many citrusy, fresh scent starts - appears very natural and not pungent. A peppery note is much more pungent at the beginning, which makes the scent immediately interesting and sets it apart from other fresh scents right from the start.
After the citric and peppery opening has subsided, a distinct juniper note comes to the fore, which, together with the vetiver, determines the further course of the fragrance.
Contrary to expectations, after a while a light natural citric acid comes to the fore again. It leads to an interplay between earthy juniper aromas and fresh accents. I have never experienced a fragrance like this before. Patchouli, amber and musk are added at the end and round off the fragrance without losing its edges and corners
The fragrance is clearly perceptible in the initial phase and naturally decreases somewhat as the process continues. The durability is nevertheless outstanding, even after hours you can still enjoy a fresh juniper scent. And on clothes the scent lasts more than a day anyway.
So why is 1976 so different? Because it's an incredibly complex, fresh juniper scent that stays exciting throughout the fragrance, yet is easily wearable. In my opinion, it is one of the best modern gentleman's fragrances.
Floris has created a true olfactory masterpiece here!

Another Tzora-like Contender, This Time With Better Results...
1976 opens with soft black pepper, sappy woody-green birch leaf and just a hint of supporting citric orange bergamot before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart, the soft black pepper and sappy woody-green birch leaf remain, with whiffs of aromatic lavender, piney green juniper and sanitized patchouli rising from the base in support. During the late dry-down the aromatic green aspects and the black pepper all vacate, unveiling a subtle, dry amber and non-animalic smelling synthetic musk driven finish. Projection is average, as is longevity at just over 8 hours on skin.

After having been impressed with Floris' 1962, I figured I would give another of the house's more recent offerings, 1976, a go as well and while not as impressive as 1962, this one doesn't disappoint. Maybe the best part of the composition's development is right at the open, as the black pepper comes off as a sophisticated gentle spray that melds perfectly with the woody-green birch leaf and the citric bergamot before adding the juniper perfectly into the mix shortly afterwards. The whole thing in many ways reminds me a bit of Tzora by Anat Fritz (and this is meant as a huge compliment). Recently I reviewed another perfume that tried to mimic Tzora's winning formula, Bentley Infinite Intense; but where 1976 successfully tones down the pepper, the Bentley sent it into overdrive, ruining the balance and the overall result. Unfortunately all is not stellar with 1976, as the amber and musky finish while skillfully implemented is rather uninteresting. That said, in this case the journey (albeit a more brief journey than one would like) to get to it is well-worth the effort, and on the whole, 1976 in my mind definitely succeeds. The bottom line is the $190 per 100 ml bottle 1976 may drop the ball just before the finish, but the "very good" to "excellent" rated 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5 perfume hangs tough almost to the end, earning a solid recommendation to all.

As close to a smoky Aventus as one can get. Smells fantastic and classy, that Birch is powerful. Juniper and Musk in drydown. Discontinued..
