I definitely don't want to belong to those Upper Ten
Oh yes, who doesn't want to belong to the 'upper ten thousand', to the 'High Society', or as my grandmother said: to the 'Hautevolee'?!
Honestly, I don't want to - or only very rarely.
But then I would definitely not scent myself with 'Upper Ten'.

It's strange: Lubin launches a consistently successful series called 'Les Talismania', beginning with 'Idole de Lubin', followed by 'Korrigan', 'Akkad' and 'Galaad' - all strong character and unusual oriental scents - and a few years later a 'Sauvage'/'Bleu de Chanel' clone, which doesn't fit into the series, nor even reaches the level of its predecessors.
It was the team Thomas Fontaine/Gilles Thévenin who developed this fragrance again, as with the extremely successful 'Korrigan'.
And that Thomas Fontaine can create great fragrances, he has proven that enough. Unfortunately, however, also less great, like for example the new, decidedly despondent 'Patou pour Homme'.

Upper Ten' is also despondent, and how.
No trace of innovation, no courage to be special, no urge for individuality.
Those strong-willed pioneers who built America and who were later called the 'Upper Ten', those brave men and women, of all people, served as inspiration for this fragrance?
O-Ton Lubin: "Without fear of obstacles, they lived every moment of their lives as if it were their last."
With 'Upper Ten'?
Hard to believe.

Lubin's scent puts me olfactorically much more into any men's shower of a fitness center, where it smells day in day out like the same 'For Men' shower gel melange.
Not that this has to be bad. You can like that. But my case isn't.
It's a bit like putting all the pictures of the most beautiful faces on top of each other to find the most beautiful, the distillate of everything beautiful, so to speak, only to find out that the most boring thing came out of it.
That's how I feel about Upper Ten.
Of course the fragrance is well made! It smells nice spicy peppery, has a few fruity nuances to offer, besides fashionable ambroxan finish, has endurance and well balanced projection.
But so far, so yawn, so snore...

Strange that Luca Turin praises this fragrance so much. I can't quite follow him. Similar to his hymn on 'Beyond Paradise for Men' years ago, I have the feeling that I am sniffing a completely different fragrance from him.

But well, tastes are different.
According to Wowi: 'And that's a good thing too!'
