Pears & chocolate dressed with roses water
Yo have recived the Discovery set of this brand and i am just loving this perfume. As i had seen many reviews comoaring It with noir de noir by Tom Ford i thought It would be more in the floral side bit charlatán is for me difinetly on the gourmand side. The fragance has a very sweet and nice character... It is like a caramelized pears with chocolate dessert, dressed with some black roses water. Last weekend i went into a libanese restaurante for Lunch and i ordered one of their most typical desserts made with roses water...and this remember me a lot to this moment! I tried It thinking of Tom Ford but finalle i am thinking more of the density and comolexity of Francesca bianchi perfumes and overall with the masterpiece black by puredistance, they share lot if vives.
Maybe the biggest issue comes with the performance. For being such an intense smell the sillage is maybe a bit too soft although the longevity is alright. Just in case the quality of the perfume is bigger for me, bringing It directly yo my wishlist. I think It is an unisex scent perfect for night use with not very Hot weather.

Flowers, chocolate today
Charlatan sounds interesting for a perfume only the question is whether this fragrance corresponds to the relevant characteristics of a charlatan, this would of course not be desirable. Some of the ingredients from the Fort & Manle portfolio that are used here are almost standardized; among them is the Damask Rose, which is often found at F&M.
But why not? Damask roses are known for their intense scent. This rose and jasmine also mix right from the start, the chocolate virtually enveloping them. As both flowers have an intensive, bewitching scent, the chocolate has a seductive, rich tone. Yes, for friends of this olfactory direction this must be a pleasure. The pear fits well into the picture, its note supports the two flowers on the one hand, on the other hand it adds a subtle sweetness to the chocolate, everything very aromatic.

Sure, it can be a killer, you gotta like those pompous starts. It also becomes clear very quickly that this is not really unisex. It smells delicate and flowery, surely not every man can wear that. With scents like this I often think of a desert rose, often of the alchemist of Paolo Coelho and his protagonist Santiago in search of his treasure and the encounter with his love, Fatima. It's complete nonsense, because the book is set in Africa, the rose here comes from Asia Minor. After all, the jasmine is Moroccan jasmine. Yet Charlatan awakens such associations in me, because the fragrance awakens a certain feeling, a certain longing.
It doesn't take long before the chocolate says goodbye and the smell is only of the flowers. The scent becomes very faint, retreats. Mentally, you check off the chocolate here, but that would be premature! Charlatan attracts again thanks to amber and vanilla. It becomes more aromatic again, the smell a little more intensive and so Charlatan swings out at some point. Whatever is faked here: all in all we have a quite nice scent. For men? Brave, but I think I'm rather reserved with lovely scents for men and see Charlatan on the women's side. Unfortunately, and this is the shortcoming of many Fort&Manle fragrances: the sillage decreases very quickly, and with the shelf life it's always the same

Away with you, you deluded fool!
To give a fragrance the name "Charlatan" is as positive for me as the baptism of a fragrance called "Égoïste". For me, the bottle is one of the most beautiful of the series, and yet this fragrance neither dazzles nor captivates me:

I'll start right away with the string result pear. Jasmine builds up in front of me like the plumage of a peacock. Directly on the skin hard on the border to the Indolian, in the projection already above it and therefore smells like a wet peacock. I must confess, Jasmine is one of my archenemies in the world of fragrances. And even in doses that are bearable for others, Jasmine is for me, as a rule, too much!

The rose, which I loved in the last fragrance of this series, doesn't stand a chance here at first, but later it continues to suffer from the dominance of jasmine. And not only the rose suffers, I do too. Because the combination of the bitter-chocolate vibes, which can be perceived very well for a while at a specific distance, together with the fading impression of jasmine form a connection that smells like freshly sprayed Ajax glass cleaner. A chord that can only be smelled just above the skin and makes me curse this charlatan already for the second time.

This middle is tough, unspectacular, the base takes hours to reach. I think it's great that this scent is still scratching the surface, but I already know what I'll be given at the end. This is the final chord of Gypsy Water (EdP). But here, the typical Byredo black amber chord with incense is omitted and is replaced by an almost smoked vanilla. The finish is conciliatory, but at this stage we have long since spoken of a purely skin-tight pleasure.

So I prefer to use the much more linear template without having to go through my personal scent hell Jasmine and whose scent molecules can still be refreshed with warm breathing air even after 8 hours and thus be perceived in the Gypsy Water Amber foundation. A tough guy!

However, it could prove to be an alternative for those who find Black Orchid too synthetic or too opulent.

Something that I had long wanted to make a statement about prices while working on this series, but always forgot. The prices on the manufacturer's website are given in Australian dollars. Converted you are in the 150€ class when buying these fragrances. The "Oud horse" is a little more expensive

Fort & Manle Charlatan Review
This is my Fort & Manle Charlatan Review, the Charlatan by Fort & Manle Fragrance Review. This is one of the most beautiful, dark rose perfumes I have ever put my smell sense on. Absolutely gorgeous, gothic, sexy, delicious, dark rose perfume. It’s got chocolate, Perigord Truffles, rose, osmanthus, vanilla and amber. Intoxicating and heavenly. One of the best. It’s what I wanted in a dark rose fragrance like Noir De Noir which also uses tuber or truffles in the notes. Man this is the best. If you like Noir de Noir you will have to get your nose on this beauty. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Charlatan by Fort & Manlé
First of all I'm not a fan of fruity, flowery, gourmand perfumes, in fact I'm a woody, earhty, leahtery perfume lover.
But this Charlatan is literally a "Charlatan"..nothing seems to be what I aspect what it would be when I read the notes...I tought not my cup of tea. Right, I spray the sample and I was knocked out...
What a subtil, complex perfume with a hughe sillage and longlivity.
For people who love the combination of chocolate, pear, rose and earhty notes, I can reccomend absolutely this Charlatan. I'm convinced and order a 50 ml.....

Deep winey roses & jasmine lie next to a plate of rich dark unsweetened chocolate, vanilla & amber truffles. Complex, earthy, gorgeous.
