Herb silk and spicy flowers
This scent doesn't want to brag. He just wants to be there, show himself.
This smell doesn't want to show off. He wants to touch with his opulence.
And "Red for men" is lush. Equipped with spicy variety right from the start. Lightly bitter spicy Artemisia counteracts with the green sunshine of basil.
This prelude is transformed into a triad without losing itself.
An almost powdery, austere, coniferous, flowery presence wants to unite apparent opposites.
Juniper berry--carnation----Rose is the trio, that then knows how to assert itself very harmonious- unusual. Flanked by a little jasmine and a hint of thyme, which here does not look like a "spice" as such, but like a sunny-sour addition to the main notes.
The soft, earthy base already plays with its aromas.
The whole fragrance is both bitter and "silky" like finely woven fine threads.
Nevertheless, I can recognize in it a powerful spice and green woodiness, the scents of the forests.
This "Red for men" has a natural complexity, and therefore fits for me quite well into the present time, as a counterexample to the "Unity Pap"...
If you don't think you're wearing something like this anymore, I'll counter you:
"I'm NOT MAN... i am I...
There are "rules" I don't have to follow!

What a Complex Powerhouse Should Smell Like...
*This is a review of the vintage Red for Men

Red for Men (vintage) is an amalgamation of so many ingredients blended and refined to the point that trying to identify individual notes is near impossible. The overall accord is heavily spicy early with a large dose of cumin and/or cardamom before turning slightly fruity, with an almost balmy chap stick-like vibe to it. It is slightly sweet overall, with a somewhat leathery and mossy undertone at its core. The truth is there is nothing like it and I can't possibly do the scent proper justice with this description, but all the ridiculously long list of ingredients blend together in perfect harmony staying pretty linear throughout. Projection is legendary and longevity is excellent.

Red for Men (vintage) is a scent that got a lot of wearings when it first came out when I was in my early twenties. Back then, to be honest I don't think I really appreciated just how good a scent it and its sister scent Giorgio for Men really were. I do now, and for the first time in about 15 years I just bought a replacement bottle of the original Red for Men so I could re-visit the juice and see if my opinion had changed over the years... What I then thought was just average juice, I now know was darn good stuff, and I absolutely love it now. It projects like the true powerhouse beast that it is, but it has a smooth upscale refined quality that somehow makes it very wearable and distinguished. Vintage bottles are getting harder and dearer to come by, but if you can spring for one I suggest you do so as scents like these just are not made anymore today, not to mention the current version of Red for Men by EA fragrances is very average despite its temptingly low price. This is one scent where getting the vintage release from Giorgio of Beverley Hills is well worth the investment, as you have not really smelled Red for Men until you smell the vintage juice. Red for Men (vintage) gets an excellent or better rating of 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5.

A strong juniper/woody accord! It's very manly & old school. It has a remarkable similarity with Patou Homme. Good performance.+3
