80's revival masterpiece
Francis Kurkdjian has done some amazing fragrances, specially for other brands. And this first masculine from Narciso Rodriguez is a great example of it. A musk based scent with a lots of patchouli and violet leafs.

This composition is kinda simple yet still unique and interesting. It utilises violet leafs in the opening, which mixed with patchouli gives this famous "wet concrete" accord. Very dry, gothic and a bit austere in the opening. Totally a throwback feel, with a modern twist. A powerhouse type of smell with animalic nuances but more focused on the "wet concrete" vibe.

As it dries down, the earthiness of the patchouli mellows a bit, becoming more rounded and sweeter. I personally enjoy it more as it dries down, when the amber and the musk became more present, giving a mellow and sweet comforting smell.

The fragrance has a very melancholic feel and everyone that like old style fragrances would probably like this one, since the patchouli-musk is the main theme here. The amber helps it being more rounded and appealing to newer noses. The longevity is decent (8h easily) and the projection is very good for the first 2h.

The only problem is that this one was discontinued and they only sell the Bleu Noir line nowadays. But you can still find deals on this fragrance online and i totally recommend you to buy it because it's unique, interesting and great overall.

I love this one since the first time i tried it long ago. It became one of my favorites and every time i wear it i understand why i love it. I wear it manly during spring rainy days but even in fall, when you have cooler cloudy days, this one fits perfectly.

My favorite from the brand and one of my favorite Kurkdjian creations of all time. It pairs very well with the women's counterpart that he and Christine Nagel had created years before. Although the musk is more pronouced in the female version, you can still smell it here mixed with a beautiful patchouli and a ambery base. Brilliant.

5/5

Spring rain...
A beautiful strange fragrance and even though very typical of aromatic-fougere type.
Eager to try when I received it, I sprayed 3 shots and was hit instantly by a dark cloud of grey amber, violet leaf, patchouli & musk that almost choked my senses. It's like a dirty oily concrete perimeter that surrounds a violet & patchouli garden under a spring rain and I just love it !.
The spray mechanism is very effective so I would say a max. 3-4 sprays in a normal day to get the whole feeling experience. Ambery, fougere, wet, musky, aromatic, dark, long-lasting...it has them all !. My personal rank 8.5/10. Recommended. Nice job Mr. Francis Kurkdjian !

For musk lovers....
Narciso Rodriguez For Him ... is an unmistakable musk fragrance for men, a good companion at this time of year. If you like Dior "Fahrenheit" or YSL "L'Homme Libre" or are looking for a timeless, pure musk scent then this could be for you too.
Its bottle is contemporary and simple, simply beautiful.
As for the fragrance, I can say that it is a bit intense at first, but then it becomes a very pure, fine, seductive fragrance. Top note is floral, but not too feminine, but also not masculine. Tap on lavender or violet. Pleasant and unisex. I couldn't identify the heart note at first until I noticed it: musk! But a very fine and unobtrusive, but also very sensual variation. Wonderful, and here again a very strong unisex touch is noticeable. Could wear women. The base note is still the most complex. Somewhat mossy, a little patchouli, as well as subtle woody notes. I could only imagine herbaceous things. Discreet floral notes are also present here again. A modern men's perfume with Unisextouch.
For Him gives you a focus and it is definitely a versatile fragrance that I have come to love.
According to the statements, this fragrance smells a bit like wet concrete, so it is often recommended to wear it when it rains. Just give it a try. It really does...

Who dances with the rain
For Him is a divider. And it's a textbook case. I became aware of this fragrance through the perfumer (Francis Kurkdjian), whose works I greatly admire.

The fragrance starts off heavy, musty and animalistic. Already here the fragrance splits the opinions into 2 camps. Some people find it unpleasant, can't like it olfactorically and then there are those who are patient, have a tendency to extremes or prefer the unusual. The latter group will be rewarded with an incredible scent experience at the latest in the drydown. Because For Him really needs time. Time to unfold on the skin, to create its warmth and to let go of its reins.

In previous reviews the word "rain" or wetness was often mentioned here. And this association also comes to mind in For Him. I see reflections of houses on a rainy street before my inner eye. Foggy avenues that seem deserted and where the last ray of sunlight flashed through the cloud cover hours ago. There is still life here. But not on this street. The people are in their apartments. Sitting at the window and looking outside. But they do not want to be out in this weather. But every once in a while you meet a person on this rainy street. A like-minded person. He's probably wearing "For Him" by Narciso Rodriguez.

The Perfect Shade of Grey
Narciso Rodriguez can be accused of many things.

- That he doesn't have a very wide selection.

- That most of his fragrances (gender inherent) are quite similar in structure.

- That he doesn't give a damn about what the mainstream is doing.

But in sum, it pleases me that there are such designers. Who show a bit of edge, put the collar up, and put their idea of fashion, or aesthetics in the world, without being too influenced by the rest of the (fashion) world.

To the point that the fragrances are quite similar in structure, I would like to say, by that I mean there is a certain design language at NR, the expression of the taste of this house, so to speak.

For my sensation, this tends to be rather tart, floral, never too nice and sweet, always rather on the border of demanding, but not so much that it becomes unpleasant.
And in the drydown, but especially the silage, most fragrances are then I find extremely sexy (even the women's fragrances I have smelled so far so), so that there are also often compliments or attention for it.

This is certainly a lot of the frequently used musk, which can act close smelled harsh, but with the body chemistry in conjunction, floral notes, and some spices and amber, as is the case with "For Him (EdT)", arises in total then but an extremely round, and pleasant fragrance picture.
For Him Eau de Toilette is unique by the note described by some as "wet concrete", which in my view is simply the intense musk. I hear this note more up close and in the opening, than then in silage and drydown.
As I said,- the fragrance becomes increasingly sexy over time, but remains serious enough to look well-dressed with it even in a suit and business, to leave a good impression, and to exude a sense of self-integrity.

In fact, I find that this eau de toilette thus also perfectly embodies Christian Grey from the movie "50 Shades of Grey". Sexy, physical, but almost always with a certain seriousness in the facial expressions, and a serious charisma. ;)

A shame that such a fragrance, a one-of-a-kind, which for me falls into the category of "Olfactory World Heritage", is / was discontinued.

But well, you want to apply, make yourself rare. ;D

Ayrton Senna could have used this fragrance on all of his Formula 1 wins in the rain. Glorious wet tarmac scent... and a musky drydown!

Simply put, odd. Violets, green notes, musks (plural). The result is a trully original, uncomparable, modern blend.
