Simply perfect!
I am the proud owner of the original edition.
This is a fragrance for the transition period from summer to autumn, but then also immediately with storm and fire in the fireplace.
In the beginning oriental heavy. Dark vanilla, tart orange, bitter bergamot and a touch of clove meet heavy old mahogany furniture, making it look powdery, dust-dry. He reminds me immediately after the application of Mitsouko from Guerlain.
It stays on the skin for a long time and even after five hours a pleasant scent of orange, clove and wood notes remains.

What feelings does it evoke in me?
Make yourself comfortable in the art-deco leather club chair and add a patchouli fidibus in the fireplace.

This is not a fragrance for sissies and wimps.
Here I have the English Landlord in front of my eyes, who takes out the game he has shot himself on the spot and helps to push the broken down Land-Rover, regardless of its tailor-made clothing

A derby between Paris and the Orient or rather Paris of the Middle East?
World class!

This is the best way to describe this fragrance. It reminds me of the capital of Lebanon. I was there in 1997. In Beirut. Also known as the "Paris of the Middle East." Mediterranean Sea, snowy mountains, cedar trees, nightlife, French influenced and elegant modern Arab culture. A capital between Europe, Africa and Asia. A capital between Christianity, Judaism and Islam. A capital between desert, mountains and sea. I say it's showtime! Derby ;-)

And it's exactly the same with this men's fragrance. A mixture of some impressive scents results in a wonderful result. Hats off, my lady. You are more than just a noble drop of gold.

I hope to meet you again soon. Then I say again: It's showtime, Derby!
We're turning my city into Paris of the Middle East!
