If we can't stand the boredom any longer, time is killed. Kühn-Görg, Monika
The ingredients of this fragrance are very bright, fresh and sparkling. You should recognize tangerine, some pepper and of course the cedar. Very boring, because you only recognize the woody component, which has been trimmed too tight in the artificiality. Comparable products with cedar, are much more aromatic and complex than this boring one which kills you and never lets go.
For LVMH, this boring tedium is certainly not the greatest masterpiece that has appeared on the market. It strongly reminds of the Fan Fendi line, which was also very dominant and quite synthetic. With too much humming and too little openness for the detail.
The evolution is linear and monotonous, that also brings to the fore the Acqua di Parma series, which is stuffed into the department store shelves by the same manufacturer.
The biggest shortcoming, these ingredients are grown in the laboratory above the acceptable pain threshold. With this, it is even possible to bring out the no longer existing olfactory buds in smokers.
For the cost budget a blessing, for the fragrance and development a curse.
If you prefer fragrances with high sillage and long strength, this one is not the first choice here, because it smells too much like a three for two action from Kaufland and not like a medium mainstream which should be a little finer and better tuned.

Elegant company that convinces
Solo Cedro, the fiery Spaniard - Actually, he could be a banal incense-stick liquorice grater, if it wasn't for this cloud of fresh tangerine and pepper that so skilfully envelops and surrounds him. This, however, gives him an incredible finesse and agility, catapulting him to the heights of cultivated gentleman fragrances. Yes, he is receptive to compliments, which he also answers skilfully. He does not ask if he may enter - but enters the room with an intense embrace. Thanks to its highly attractive, inviting cedar notes, most doors open up to him anyway. Its woody notes also give it an immense seductive attraction, as well as a certain melancholic depth, which is not so heavy that it becomes brooding. He hardly knows any resistance, and when he does, he overcomes it playfully with playful compliments (pepper) and heart-freshening remarks (tangerine). Next thing you know, you're both on the couch naked.

And thus his areas of application are also relatively diverse: Wherever there is a need for sustainable persuasion, winning or impressing: Whether on the racetrack, at an important business dinner or on a first date, he has his place and finds his way. And before the wearer knows it, he will no longer be solo, contrary to the naming. For me a Hidden Champion, an absolutely remarkable, classic men's fragrance, which clearly stands out from the fragrances of well-known perfumers.

Cedary yawn
Duller than the dullest woody scent on Earth, but I’ll admit it: it’s nice to wear. And compared to other mid-range cedar-based scent like the horrid Chopard Noble Cedar and the likes, it’s easily better than many of them. It’s flatly artificial to the bone but it feels smooth, fresh (a refined, slightly powdery kind of orange-infused freshness, thanks to neroli), slightly sweet-fruity, with a classy touch of balmy herbal mint and something like tea. And cedar, of course. It reminds me a bit of Dunhill Icon with less complexity and more crisp wood. And obviously it’s in the same league of Terre d’Hermès and countless of other woody-fresh scents, but the presence of neroli, of a powdery-minty axe and of cedar more than vetiver makes it slightly (really slightly) different from many of them. Say, drier and warmer and the same time. Simple and unpretentious, completely uninteresting from a “fragrance fan” point of view, but quite pleasant to wear. Clean, cleverly composed and showing a really nice balance of tones – from warm to tart. Easily (and nothing more than) a safe and surely successful Christmas gift for dads, brothers and colleagues ready to dismiss their Axe fragrances.
