No Suit - but hoodie? ;)
When I, personally, wear a suit, it's already very formal. Officially. It's about status. Representation. But, and above all, authenticity. From this context, I can not only absolutely understand the impulses from some statements here, but I can confidently sign them.

In short, Gammon 2 is not a suit for me.

Black Suit starts with a dominant salty note with a slightly fruity citric note of bergamot. The whole thing already looks round, but for a suit (and in my case) it's rather not the first choice. Of course, if I was in my early / mid-twenties, then maybe you could wear this scent to the interview. In the office with customer contact, maybe even. For a business meeting, I would strongly advise against it.

He has fresh aspects. A light shower gel note. The heart note may support here and there, I could unfortunately perceive e.g. from the pepper nothing. The fragrance itself has a conclusive effect, but without really tending in a concrete direction. For example, it is not a vetiver scent. But musk and vanilla grind in the drydown too much towards "pleasing mainstream". I would also certify a fresh, spicy profile rather than a woodiness.

Black Suit has a lot to offer and yet he lacks some profile. The certain something that could represent the wearer. Creating an identity. I've smelled a lot of things around here before.

At the same time I get more and more the impression that Gammon, with its four fragrances, has a younger target group in mind. I want to equip with a "scented wardrobe." Especially if you don't want to think much about fragrances and if you are not interested in perfumes (as most people do outside of perfumes), you will be well provided with a selection of the most common fragrances.

For me the "black suit" fits better in the leisure area or maybe even in the club. In the end, you have to be comfortable with a scent. After all, you wear it for yourself. Otherwise you're unauthentic in a T-shirt, too.

Wear whatever you want with the outfits you like.

The subtitles of fragrances are more an idea than a dictation. :)
