Quite massive, somewhat one-dimensional Vetiver-Erdreich-Incense Number
I try to avoid the word "forest" as of NOW, because it was used 133 times below to characterize "Monsieur". I read something of ultragrüner variant of "Jubilation XXV", and at the place it would be nevertheless times interesting to use.

It's my first Guillaume fragrance and you can read a lot of mediocre things about him here at Parfumo, but without a doubt this "Monsieur" seems to stand out.

Well, I can understand what the cross-reference to "jubilee" means. Although a completely different aroma style, the "body" (to use the wine language) resembles that of Amouage. Spreading out the arms, "ventilating", without being too tightly packed inside.

Meanwhile: I say - and here I have to think of "Encre Noire" - the aromatic saturation by vetiver (or rather unfortunately the often used, nervig-planar vetiverylacetat), incense, moss and papyrus is not quite closed, the building blocks are in their quite striking spread quite quickly (over)saturating, somehow also tiring.

In any case, there is not much room for free associations, one is forced with quite great force to sniff around with one's nose in the soil of nature and with pine twigs gibt´s still another one on the back...
Somewhat harassing and out back also too one-dimensional, I would like to mean.

The perfect gentlemen
i came across this fragrance through one of my favorite reviewers in YouTube his name is Greggieboy76 (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKfTEB-ST8LuDApi1iKKBLQ) , the way he described this scent was a must buy for me..it took me a while to buy it but thank god i did its a jewel.
let me break it down, its spicy but not over the top so creamy from the Sandalwood earthy from the vetiver and patchouli but not dirty at all well balanced and masculinity with class.
the main hero here is the Frankincense( not smokey) mixed with the oakmoss and papyrus gave it depth .
this fragrance is perfect if we are talking about scent profile but it really lacks performance silage is week longevity is a big issue for me you really need to apply again after 3 hours .
conclusion :
if you looking for gentlemen scent good for the office nice for a night out non offending this is the one .
my score is 8/10.
7.0/10

Ombre Indigo Brother
While applying Monsieur on my skin, it immediatly brought Olfactive Studio Ombre Indigo to my mind. Both have the same main notes: vetiver, incense and a Agarwood profile. This seems to be due the use of cypriol/nargamotha/papyrus, since it's one of the essences used into some oud abstract accords. It's the first nuance that you notice, the sweet incense nargamotha aroma mimicking oud. Soon after it you notice minty and airy incense nuances mixed to woody vetiver smell. The sandal and cedar here are combined in a way that they form a more abstract and woody impression. What i thought that is interesting on this one is that altough it's a fragrance mainly made of basenote essences, it's not linear and also not so dense either. Still, i think it's redundant having it and Ombre Indigo, they seem very much alike for me.
