Sensual Balsam
The first thing you can perceive is a very intense and strong aromatic note, which radiates a wonderful soft and at the same time bright and strikingly sparkling aura and I suspected white pepper instead of black pepper.

At the same time, the pepper is enveloped by a slightly different aromatic note, which carries a very beautiful, engagingly smooth balsamic, discreetly resinous tone, and gives the top note something reminiscent of fine shaving foam puff, and is due to nutmeg.

These two notes are accompanied by a delicate ethereal nuance, which gives the shaving foam tassel a pleasant, very fine soapy freshness and I suspected the use of eucalyptus instead of lemon.

A little bit later the whole discreet hint, which can be perceived from the beginning, has united with the only slightly weakened notes of the top note to a very smooth deep, discreet resinous powdery balm, which with light cinnamon and vanilla scents gives the fragrance a very sensual masculinity and I thought the use of Labdanum possible, but here cistus is called Absolue, from which Labdanum is extracted.

At the same time, the fragrance is accompanied by very delicate Mediterranean sweet, slightly herbaceous nuances, enveloped by the slightly sweet floral creamy tone of the rose geranium, which in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the fragrance, despite its heaviness, exudes a wonderful swinging timbre and is derived from lavender.

In the last 3 hours, a pleasant sweet and spicy note builds up in very leisurely steps, which is covered by a very light, sweetly balsamic note reminiscent of milk chocolate, giving the base something cuddly and thanks to amber and benzoin.

These two notes are enveloped by a delicate creamy, light wooden touch, which makes for an extremely pleasant finish and comes from sandalwood.

Unfortunately I could not perceive cedar, styrax and patchouli, but I can well imagine that these scent components were used to complete the scent picture.

Altogether the fragrance lasts 7.5 hours on my skin.

In the first 30 minutes, the Sillage is concentrated to a clearly perceptible full arm length and for 2.5 hours it maintains a very good perceptible half arm length, before it is reduced in quiet steps until the fragrance has faded away.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Honk1510" for the bottling.

Reminds me a lot of a '90s perfume. Can't tell which one it is. But I think it's a Davidoff scent that's no longer produced. The fragrance is great, but should be used discreetly
Very intense...

Soulful and seductive like Marvin Gaye's smooth soul
Geez, Iceberg Man is so smooth, stylish, and romantic like Marvin Gaye's quiet soul! This is a kind of like leathery scent with hints of pepper, tar, coffee, light tobacco, and so forth, while not smelling just like any one of them. It has an incredibly beautiful opening that's made up of lemon and nutmeg goodness. It tingles and sparkles like light brown amber crystals, with a soft touch of mild pepper that makes the scent sharper, spicier, and edgier.

Not long after the initial opening, the light spicy aroma begins to warm as a wonderful creaminess begins to smooth out the sparkle. Here it comes the tricky part... Cistus, labdanum, and rock rose, some people think it must be the smell of heaven, and others believe it's the smell from hell. The rock rose is deep, diffusive, musky, and sweet balsamic reminiscent of true labdanum, with a dry, warm, earthy, herbaceous undertone. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
Anyhow, if you wear Iceberg Man and wait about 3 hours after application when most of the sweet notes have faded, and the slightly leathery, woody base is prominent, that's mostly labdanum. There is a hint of patchouli and styrax, which combined give a kind of dark chocolate like tone, but most of the woody and thick, resinous, syrupy or tar-like notes are primarily thanks to labdanum.

In the base, eventually, the perfume moves away from the enjoyably edible and takes on a more traditional amber and powder tone. Iceberg Man feels as if it should be bulky and hefty, but instead, it remains restrained and contained. In the end, Iceberg Man endures an ambered hue of masculinity wrapped up in gentle sophistication.

This is the second time I'm wearing Iceberg Man, the very first time was a night out for attending an event, and I got tons of compliments, this time at the office... the sillage is moderate and close to my arms, which is pretty good for co-workers. Still, the longevity is ridiculously incredible, 12 hours I would bet, seriously. I prefer wearing Iceberg Man in cold weather, the richness in spices, resins, and woods make this cologne ideal for fall days and evenings out.

In a few words, Iceberg Man is calming, warm, sensual, deep, and uplifting. I love it, a stunning fragrance. Beautifully woody, dry, warm sophistication with a perfect, never pushy yet extremely long-lasting performance. It lingers and pleases the wearer for the entire day and leaves a trail of masterfully blended bright, humorous and vibrant aura. You can be reminded of others' fragrances; people compare it to Rochas Lui, which I am not aware of, yes, but no comparison here because this one exceeds and supersedes them all. Bravo Iceberg!!

Worn it for a B-day party, I got tons of compliments after several hours. Nearly everyone I met said "Wow! What scent are you wearing? Nice"
