Apuldre opens as basically a sort of greener and fresher Canali Style for men with also a slight connection to both Narciso for Men (the violet leaves) and Lancome Miracle Homme (not sure what, I think that same peculiar feel of “astringent” greenish woodiness). It is a really mainstream-like citrus-pepper woody scent with a round powdery feel, something which reminded me of incense (guess it’s cedar), a really slight sort of tobacco-leatherish note, something woody-green like cypress (guess it’s artemisia). The evolution on skin brings up a slight variation with juniper and leather (tiny, unsubstantial synthetic leather) as prominent notes. Overall it’s a really crisp and enjoyable fragrance, clean and neat, which however hasn’t in my opinion the slightest “niche” factor (whatever it may be) able to separate it from the overcrowded “peppery-woody mainstream scents” segment. Decent, but highly neglectable.
