My newest favorite...
I'll say it straight away: I love him. On the one hand it starts fresh (and almost spicy) with bergamot, at the same time its wonderful creaminess shines through, which characterizes the character of this fragrance throughout. A creaminess I had never known before. Neither soapy, nor too sweet, nor too powdery (although "too powdery" does not exist). Just just right. It is an unbelievably feminine and elegant fragrance... Thank God, the tubereuse holds back in a form in which it contributes its best qualities moderately to the Gesamtkunstwerk. I also mean to smell heliotrope. The drydown is pleasantly warm, as someone has already written here, not a classic chypre, because neither oakmoss nor patchouli dare to come out. What a stronger presence of these notes would have done with the overall scent is hard to say, would perhaps have contributed to a somewhat greater tension. But the way he is, I like wearing him very much. Signature scent potential!

Not a proper chypre ...
I expected much more... - given the name and the other gorgeous scents in the line ("Anonimo Veniziano", for example). Chypre Nobile starts off like a cheap drugstore scent in the style of "Jovan Musk" - and retains this musky appeal for a while. Bewilderment on my side - so much money for such a trite, banal fragrance? After 10 min, the scent changes and wraps you into a cloud of tonka-bean and vanilla. Not a chypre, neither "noble" nor classical in its composition. What a bummer! This is a vanilla-based ambery oriental, not a chypre!

Not every perfume labelled Chypre is a Chypre
But this is not so important. Even if I do not find the typically mossy base that I always connect to Chypre in this fragrance – it is a wonderful perfume that reminds me of the Carthusia fragrances. And just because bergamot plays a role in the top note it is not necessarily a Chypre fragrance to me.

Chypre 1942 does start citric and fruity, but the top note leaves a „friendly“ impression due to the effectively used orange blossom. This sounds flowery, fruity and nice - but Nobile does not leave it like that since this fragrance is dramatic.

Chypre 1942 has a pronounced and expressive heart note with a tuberose background. Again, this note is discreet, but nevertheless explicit and thus, provides the frame for all other notes. Storax resin is the part that provides the recognition value that Ergoproxy mentioned in the German Parfumo. I totally agree. It is this effect that has hauled up this fragrance to my wishlist since with the base note, this aura is not removed - it is amplified. So, this fragrance experiences a wonderfully beautiful and harmonious escalation until it dries down, and it shows a longevity that one would never have dreamed of at the first encounter with the top note.

In my view, this is grand. This is the way I like fragrances: With a clear remarkable progression but with harmonic development and without changing directions.
