Forgotten lemon classic - rightly so?
Wow, I actually seem to be the first one here. It is astonishing that no Signoricci has ever commented on this, the number of classic men's fragrances from the 60s is rather manageable. In addition, with a little luck, the fragrance is still available at moderate prices.

It could be the optics. The bottle doesn't look like much. Mine looks like the one on picture 4/4: Pressed glass at the bottom, chrome-plated plastic at the top. It was rather in the allibert than on the heavy marble top of the washstand. So poor man's eau sauvage? Let's see...

This is about elegance, my ass! The top note of my Signoricci is as beautiful as ever, despite its age. Triple Zironenrittberger in your face! Whew. With proper kawumms lemons come around the corner, not the squeaky sour ones, here britzelts bitter and slightly fruity. The first lemon charge gives way to herbal and spicy citrus notes. On a light tobacco base, elegant and soft, the kick is given by crisp green notes. Everything perfectly interlocked. Simple, classic, fresh. Floating, transparent, and even a little bit sophisticated.

I do not smell the pyramid candidates Amber, Tonka bean, and civet. Instead, the base is a good deal of vetiver and very fine cedar, I suspect the rose more ... The whole thing (perfectly intertwined, did I say that already?) is an elegant, even luxurious fragrance from another time. The interesting thing here is: both recognisable from the sixties and ahead of its time. Because broad-legged, masculine, fallen out of time or something, there's nothing here. All light, floating, perfect in one... okay, I'll stop. With a few feminine yet distinctive masculine notes. For me, Signoricci plays in a league with the old Armani Eau Pour Homme, even if it is less complicated and much more summery and, admittedly, less unique.

I never get tired of the fragrance, there's nothing tiring about it, there's nothing overpowering about it. On the contrary: every spray is a little Cologne-like wake-up call. And it doesn't work without re-spraying - we discreetly get to the minus points. Unfortunately, the gentleman becomes quite fast very close, arrived there, he does not run out of breath for several hours. But the momentum of the first hour is gone... well, something's always wrong.

On the plus side, a beautiful elegant summer scent remains: at the same time modern and nostalgic in its fine austerity
