A fragrance like a journey through perfume history
Silver Wood by Korloff was a real "bang for the buck" for me, as they say nicely in anlish.... so a price cracker. Just 24€ for the according to Parfumo users fourth-best perfume from the jewel manufacturer Korloff Paris... since nothing can go wrong, right? D

Well, the fourth. Hm, in Formula 1 also called the "unfortunate 4th place", because you are no longer allowed to stand on the podium. ;P
But what is behind that scent in 4th place? A winner, or a loser fragrance?

I have of course before the purchase brutalst "gespoiled", so informed, read, compared, gustiert...

...and came to the conclusion that the fig holds the not too small residual risk that the fragrance annoys me or bored, because the fig could convince me so far hardly in perfumes. Mostly it smells sweet in a rather unpleasant way for me, and possibly too nice,- in an intrusive way. Bit like a droll coconut (coconut I feel as a man just so not... the field I prefer to leave to women or those who feel they belong to this gender. ^^)

Anyway, this is already a risk, aaaber the manufacturer, which I respect very much, (Black Vetiver is a jewel for eternity, thereby Korloff has with me a great leap of faith...), the good ratings, and the alleged similarity to the quite great Ferrari Silver Essence, that are already many reasons to take a 24€ risk. ;)

So expectation or hope: Silver Essence in something more expensive and more interesting.

Now my fragrance impression, after I have torn down hecktisch and greedy the Zelofan to test the fragrance immediately on the body.
In the opening, it goes right away very strongly in the direction of Silver Essence, there is even this sweet, surprisingly "fluffy", subdued tingle, I think the pepper is responsible for this, which is so cleverly interwoven in sweet chords, so that it really sinks in it.
It's like putting a tablecloth over your eating utensils: You only see the silhouettes of the sharp objects.

Up to here I was a bit bored, not to say disappointed, but fortunately the olfactory journey continued. Whereby, first in the wrong direction:
Suddenly, it went more in the direction of fig. But wait: There is more to it!

Somehow, the fig in Silver Wood manages to draw me in more than I'm used to from figs. It blends well with the other accords and the skin (even that I hadn't said of so many fragrances... that they blend with skin chemistry).

So in this 2nd phase I would say, is nevertheless a tad more fig than I would need it, but it is for it genuinely masterfully used and interwoven.

In phase 3, after so an hour, the fragrance in general, but the fig in particular then downright melted with the skin, and suddenly seems really really sexy. If it was in phase 1-2 still rather " Silver Essence", it is now more in the direction of "Bvlgari Men in Black".

It does then no longer sooo much, but the next hours, the fragrance is somewhat more diffuse, but remains well perceptible, and develops an almost Oud-like borderline-oriental sweetness, which is really a crowning conclusion to a great scent.

I would say in summary, at the beginning you do the fragrance maybe a little bit, because it seems there still a little more striking, "commercially".
But from the beginning drydown (from phase 2-3) it simply becomes more and more physical but at the same time more interesting, and that makes it stand out for me personally clearly from Silver Essence, which then comes up more one-dimensional.

So Silver Essence is like a beautiful painting to me, but every time you look at it it's exactly the same.

Silver Wood on the other hand, is a scent journey, like a hike through the desert into the night, where it becomes seductive and cozy. ;)

I can highly recommend both scents to you, if you don't know the direction yet. Price-performance tip! B)

Pleasant all-rounder
Dear Parfumos,

today a factual comment on the Korloff Private - Silver Wood to give you a basic and solid overview.

You can already find a few statements about this fragrance, some parallels were drawn to the Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf. In the first, superficial olfactory impression a similarity can be seen, but if you look a little closer you will quickly realize that there are two independent fragrances that should not be compared. Also the comparison with After Eight is in my opinion not describing away, because I don't perceive mint in any phase
This is a classic, sweetish cardamon fragrance with pleasant influences of cinnamon. If you want to compare it with Spicebomb again, it is to be noted that it is a little less sweet and has a slightly metallic DNA, which makes the fragrance for me more wearable, fresher and less overloaded By the way, do not be negatively impressed by the opening. The first two minutes are a bit strange, the scent DNA is hard to describe here, but it subsides very quickly and then the above mentioned things show up.

Basically a really pleasant fragrance that is wonderfully suitable for autumn and winter The fragrance is easy to like and is a good all-rounder for people who like to apply slightly sweeter fragrances but do not want to sink completely into them at the same time.
The silage stays within the frame, so that Silver Wood is not too conspicuous a companion.
The durability is on my skin in the upper, middle range.

The bottle looks great and underlines a little the very soft metallic note that I perceive in the background.

Gorgeous and niche quality.
This is a gorgeous niche quality men's fragrance. It opens with sweet balsamic, soft fig and wood vibe; and dries down into a woody, spicey aromatic. This is my first fragrance from the house of Korloff, and I can't wait to try more fragrances from this house. I recommend Korloff's Silver Wood fragrance for any man that loves woody and sweet (amber) fragrances. Great for fall and winter. Lasts about 6 - 8 hours on my skin. You gotta pick this up!

It can be described as a simplified Halfeti. Or Chopard Oud Malaki with sugary balsam instead of leather. Or a green version of Spicebomb.

A sweet & spicy pleasure bomb with heavy cardamom + cinnamon plus uncommon rosewood. One of the best scents of Korloff. Truly recommended!
