Mancera, a brand I've grown fond of. I have already tested many of these brands extensively and found most to be really strong. There hasn't been a loser in it yet. You get high quality fragrances, which are relatively expensive but high quality. For niche conditions, however, still inexpensive, since one gets the mesiten Mancera's for approx. 150 euros a 120ml. Can you pay.
I bought a small bottling because I tested myself through the brand and liked the concept. Tobacco is not my favourite brand, but it can be shown to advantage with beautiful other notes.
Mancera bottles are very noble and uniform. Only in the color they differ. Here is the color matching the name red and an eye-catcher. Very noble and an enrichment for a beautiful bottle collection.
When it comes to the description of the fragrance, the first thing I have to say is an extremely loud fragrance. He's anything but subtle. On the contrary: One of the best performance I've ever tested. A small sprayer radiates so much and you should be aware of that when you wear this fragrance. In plain language: It is 0.0 suitable for everyday use. For me a fragrance that you can use if you like to be the center of attention. Fits great in the evening and the nightlife.
The top note and the main DNA remind me of Parfums de Marly's Layton. Overall I find the fragrance as a cross-section of Herod, Layton, Carlisle + its own individual touch. The top note has a strong fruity note. Similar to Layton, an apple-like note with an ethereal touch appears. Here however already more bad boy touch with light Oud and tobacco note. An extremely interesting DNA that will probably make many curious and the carrier interesting. Also patchouli and a nice spice are present here. The first few hours he is pushy, penetrating and very present. Since I like this smell with me in the positive sense. If you don't like him, he can be a pain in the ass. In the base it calms down a little and rounds off well. Amber, soft wood, vanilla, musk and natural tobacco act very softly and pleasantly. Compared to the first hours rather ordinary, but very pleasant. If you like Parfums de Marly's fragrances Layton, Herod and Carlisle, you will probably like them too.
As I said: The Sillage is extremely strong and obtrusive, also the durability is over 10 hours, which is optimal for long nights.
If I buy it, I don't know yet, because the possibilities to wear this fragrance are very limited. Nevertheless, I make a clear recommendation to buy. Especially for people who like to go out and celebrate
