Men's Zippers
There are thousands of perfumes named after gold, platinum and silver, and certainly a few that bear the less precious metals like copper and iron in their names. Alloys such as brass and bronze will also be represented. However, I will make a bet that this fragrance here is the only one in the past, present and future that proudly bears the name of the industrial metal alloy Zamak, consisting of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper in the title
It's worthy of a company that has developed a perfume that is not only named after black ink, but is also supposed to smell like it (besides Breath of God by Lush, Encre Noir was one of my two horror experiences when testing scents). But I digress, Zamak it is. Why, you don't know, maybe you don't have to know. The scent certainly doesn't smell metallic, but One Million doesn't smell of gold either. Zamak is a technical alloy, it is used for die casting and is used to make model trains and zippers. Maybe there's something about "toys for men" - I really think the scent is quite masculine, and that's not all. Perhaps even more likely, you could think of the name as an innovative development, an alloy - here a tinkerer came up with the idea of stirring things together that nobody has dared to do before.

And there would actually be a lot to it, because I find this fragrance extremely original. Its central note is orange blossom, a white bloomer, and in my little perfume universe, orange blossom scents always go in one of two directions. Either (flowery or musky underlay) into clean-white-soft-flowery-bloury-flowery-creamy-sweetly-fluffy like "APOM" or "Jil Sander Sun" (yeah, stone me for comparison, you APOM fans). Or, what I usually like better, pimped up citrically into the radiant-happy-spritty-sunny-cologny like (to take another example from the upper and lower end of the price scale) "Yves Rocher Fleurs d'Oranger/Petitgrain/Lavande" or "Le Labo Fleurs d'Oranger 27".

Here one has made both, vanilla in the base and all sorts of (in addition peppered) citric above. But most of all, and this is really new (it seems to me), the orange blossom has been amalgamated with a warm, spicy and hearty men's fragrance that resembles a shaving watery barbershop. Wood, leather, nutmeg (for me it smells quite like crisp cloves of spice), that's almost rustling leather now, so thoughts of "Old Spice" and its relatives come up. I find this really (at least in head and heart note) as exciting as it is successful. In my opinion, the late phase is the least convincing of the fragrance, it is too sweet and one-dimensional for me, almost sticky in places, but it sounds harder than it is meant.

Our Zamak has juice and strength, with sparing dosage it holds out for seven hours properly and afterwards still skinny after and after.

Wish list narrowly missed, but all in all a beautiful fragrance, and above all almost as original as the name.
