Dark Green Old Fashioned Fragrance...
So, I’ve been wearing this one often, and I have mixed feelings regarding it. It’s very much an old fashioned herbal style of fragrance. It has a very green and balmy air to it. I get the bergamot,juniper berry, lavender and fir balsam. I get a spicy herbal vibe throughout actually. There is laurel/bay leaf which is mixed with a herbal lavender... the only way I can really describe this fragrance is “dark green” in the same vein as the Ralph Lauren tradition (or indeed Azzaro pour Homme or even Tsar by Van Cleef & Arpels.

I think it’s a good fragrance. It’s dark and old fashioned and refined. It is daring in that it takes a risk with the very dark vibe (nothing light about this fragrance). I also think that it has an aniseed theme as well, but it could be the strong patchouli and leather combination, coupled with a harsh leather note.

I don’t think this one is too versatile as it seems formal to me. Having said that, if you like dark or strong fougères like the ones mentioned above, then this will appeal. Otherwise, the other fragrances do offer good value for money as well.
