I'll break a lance for Proraso

The man does not pronounce this name without a certain awe. Especially the shaving man.
And this Proraso scent has never been appreciated by anyone?
Shame on you, men!!! .-) .-)

First I allow myself a correction of the statement above: the production was clearly stopped.
That's not true! Sorry, dear Forum Director.... :-)
Also on the web page of Proraso this smell is listed, although something hidden!
You search logically under "Products" - Ha! - but not at Proraso (Grins) there you have to click under PRO, then you scroll down to the bottom right: SPECIAL RANGES FOR BARBER SHOP
and Schwupps has one/woman the "yellow" series. According to the motto: Why simple, even if it's complicated. Um.... .-)
It first says "incorporated" into the Google translator and then inserted here:
Proraso dedicates Single Blade to the experienced hands of experienced and precise professionals with a single blade and pays attention to product quality. A line with unmistakable formulas and scents, with rich and full-bodied textures that support the ritual of the traditional shave through special presentations.
The products of the line are characterized by a rich and full-bodied consistency, specially designed to allow a smooth shave with a blade and comfort after shaving, as well as a pleasant effectiveness in beard treatment.
Three fragrances: Wood and Spice , Azur Lime and Cypress & Vetyver enliven three different lines with notes of exotic woods, the freshness of citrus fruits and the harmonious enjoyment of cedar and vetiver.

Well - and I will briefly describe the "Wood & Spice" Cologne.
Crystal clear, square spray flacon with the obligatory 100ml content.
But what content.
I have been a convinced and above all satisfied consumer of Proraso products for so many years Just take the shaving soap, a dream in terms of fragrance but above all in the foam result.
In shaving forums, as already mentioned, one speaks Proraso almost already "holy".
The maintenance products and barber supplies are countless, all of which really deserve the predicate Excellent.

With "Wood &Spice" one has now acquired a cologne whose fragrance has knocked me down.
I may point out, though: Somewhere I have already sniffed out this combination of fragrances - the experts here in the forum would surely know which one I could mean when testing the fragrance - unfortunately I can't figure it out. Wonderfully warm, I'd describe the first impression. Woody, spicy, sweet, that's certainly true.
I didn't use the scent after shaving. It's hung up later. So whether it can also be used as an AS is beyond my knowledge. I prefer to use the Proraso-AS-Balm.
(just to be on the safe side .-) ) Because nothing is more unpleasant to me than to irritate the stressed skin additionally after the wet shave.
The shave serves me the relaxation, is to me never (annoying) duty but always already "free skate" .
For a cologne it has an enormous stamina. With me about 6 hours.
I like the smell that wood of any kind, just freshly processed, emits. Wood is for me a "living being" that gives us humans so much! Too bad we often just burn it. But what can be made of wood and with wood not everything. Our life is inconceivable without the raw material wood.
I don't just like working with wood privately.
And this woody, warm, slightly sweet scent accompanies me with this cologne (almost) the whole day.
Something previously applied to the wrist and one involuntarily sniffs again and again at the site,
At least I do.
In the statements a "cheap note" or too much of vanilla is mentioned. This is subjective sensation.
I can't confirm these statements!

Once again the good reputation of Proraso is confirmed for my feelings.

PS - If you don't like the fragrance "Wood & Spice" - there are many others to choose from.

Magnificent Hidden Gem
Scentrack: Hindi Zahra – Un Jour

From the beginnings of the fragrance community there is a persistent tendency for starting a hype train. Several YouTube reviewers were known for (un)successful hype train creations. Successful hype trains are usually like an atomic fission chain reaction, and soon the whole community is overwhelmed with reviews of the same fragrance. Unfortunately, hype trains are often unjustified and just a tool for gaining some kind of prestige within the community. Personally, I consider hype trains as a childish attempt to present a fragrance as a universal “lady killer”, “panty dropper”, “compliment getter” etc. In my humble opinion, love for a certain fragrance is strictly a personal act. A manifestation of my personality or a current state within the fragrant molecules.
What is the reason of this prologue? Maybe a possible try to start my own hype train, the first and last, after I sniffed and bought Proraso Wood and Spice. Not to create my own energetic pendulum as Vadim Zeland claims, just to pinpoint that one could find a beautiful fragrance creation on totally unexpected place. Mysterious are the ways of perfumery.
Finally, how does it smell? Wood and Spice are the beautiful hybrid of classic Italian colonia genre and contemporary Oriental tendencies in perfumery. For an Eau de Cologne, this creation is rather strong and long lasting. The main player is the saffron note, combined with gentle, yet dirty cumin note. This cumin note gives a typical Oriental dissonance, off putting to some. The spicy part of the fragrance is combined with woody part, made of cedar and very polite darker oud accord or a touch of Guaiac wood. Beneath all, one could sense some gentle amber-like bottom, which is somehow muted with the oud or maybe the source of this oud mirage. Interesting is the very faint green violet leaf which combined with this amber reminds me of Narciso Rodriguez for Him. However, Wood and Spice reminds me more of Lubin Idole or Bentley for Him Absolute due to the strong saffron note. Sweet and woodsy part strongly reminds me of Calvin Klein Obsessed Absolute. Additionally, it possesses some distant Oriental echo of Laudano Nero.
Spice and Wood is a fairly linear and somehow rough fragrance, but successfully satisfies my need for cliché niche Oriental fragrances like Idole, Laudano Nero or even long gone M7. There is plenty of good news here, but the bad news is that is probably discontinued. Grab it now, and you will thank me later.
