From top to bottom or down
From top to bottom or downwards, that means that B683 starts well but then unfortunately slackens a little towards the base.
But now from the beginning:
B683...unusual name, sounds like a chemical lab, test series, prototype or something scientific. But it's not. After a short research in the net the solution of the riddle is found, Mr. Barrois alludes to the name of the planet of the Little Prince (well-known children's book). So B683 is supposed to be the fragrance planet of Barrois or something similar...well, the explanation of the name so far. Does not arouse any emotions and so I continue with the fragrance:
Start after spraying 1 splash each behind the ears and 2 on the wrist, SPICY and LEATHER. Wow, a flattering force from mom's spice rack and dad's old briefcase tickles my nose. The saffron sticks out a little bit more than the pepper but it doesn't get too prickly and fortunately I don't have to sneeze. The leather that is probably produced by the violet is relatively velvety for my impression. This spectacle keeps well in a small cloud around me for the first half hour. The cloud is present but does not kill anyone. Very pleasant and also not too obtrusive. Little by little the overall impression becomes rounder, the spicy one warps a little and a slightly sweet fruity note joins the leather. That loosens up the whole thing somehow and presents everything a little rounder. From the heart note on I feel the fragrance to be relatively angular and soft anyway. A light touch of bittersweet medicine resonates in the background, maybe the labdanum. Reminds me quite remotely of Antaeus...such an interplay of cistus leather and medicine. And unfortunately, the part that is not as great as the previous one comes along...a slightly dextrose-bitter ambroxan note is pushed through and that's it. That remains with me with a hint of suede until the end after about 6 hours and B683 has faded away.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the scent and can imagine wearing it regularly but after the great start, the rather ordinary smelling ambrox bed at the base is a little disappointing. If something more original had come along, I would have given at least 9 points. But in the end it is only a spice suitable for everyday use with a short WOW-effect. The overall impression of the Sillage was not too bad, but I don't think the fragrance has to be taken into account in a negative way, because it is sometimes pleasant if you don't hit everyone in the surrounding area with your perfume olfactorically on the twelve. It's definitely worth trying if you like leather and spice, but whether it's worth its price is another question.
Today it has accompanied me nicely through a few hours of the day and if it were cheaper, it might even be worth buying.
But B683 will not land on my planet for the time being

Dullsville.
Top notes of Glossy Advertisement Photo Of Handsome Man At Business Meeting hit you like a brick at first, but after dry down there's a bit of Reagan Era Dinner Party Absolute milling about. Moderate sillage.

It’s VERY classical. Nothing unique here, it smells like what an alien would think “cologne” must be like after studying human magazine ads from afar. I guess if you need one in the rotation for extended family get togethers or forced fraternization work events, you could do worse. Inoffensive.

One of the most elegant male leather fragrances, certainly adored by the Kouros & Fahrenheit fans! Loving it!
