Beau Brummel's heirs vs. Wuppertaler SV
First of all: everyone born after the year of publication of this little water, i.e. 1975, should keep their hands off this Puig product. This classic Saubermann fragrance is too old-fashioned and conservative. Men who have not yet bought their ticket to the last third of their lives do not really need to deal with this supposed preciosity. Oldschoolers like me, on the other hand, have their modest joy for well and gladly three hours and had to invest just the equivalent of a CurrywurstPommesMajo.

So it was the Godfather of all dandies who had to serve as the patron saint of this fragrance. I don't exactly see why it had to be like this. If you consider that this Beau Brummel - ancestor Oscar Wildes, Stephen Frys, Morrisseys and many more. - for his morning routine including his wardrobe alone took a mere five hours, the naming turns out to be rather pompous. It's as if an old regional league classic like Wuppertaler SV - RW Essen is now announced as the game of the decade. Well, maybe it was like that in 1975, but today it looks a bit thick. The name of the little water does not do justice to the icon that has shaped men's fashion for centuries, especially in this bottle that is completely free of style and fantasy. Beau Bummel would have deserved a glamorous, cultivated and extravagant hit in the finest dress as its fragrance counterpart. But what soll´s? Names are only sound and smoke anyway and it does not apply here to evaluate the name. When I think about what belongs to the survivors of the EdT Brummel from 1975 today, 2019, 1975, it wrestles a certain respect from me. Anyone who's been on the market that long deserves my benevolence. Enough of the tearing! Let's be good, fair play is the gentleman's highest command. In addition, we are in a price range here, which already for every quiet nagger deservedly yellow because of complaining after itself. I have shot a 2 x 250 ml set consisting of AS and EdT for not even 9 € (!) in the net. Lowest budget ever. No more oiling around.

Brummel's brother in spirit is unquestionably the Teutonic Evergreen Tabac Original. But a similar cult worship might not be granted to him in Spain or anywhere else in the world. Almost 20 years later he was allowed to celebrate the premiere of our favourite Tabac, so in my opinion the stigma of the copy clings to him. And anyone who has had the chance to taste Farina's Russian leather knows the difference between a simple copy (Brummel) and an extremely successful interpretation (Russian leather).

What's it like now, the scent? A pungent, citrusy opening is wrapped in soapy lavender and a little camomile and thus quickly rendered harmless, followed by very brave, familiar wood notes and a little amber. The base is balsamic to slightly soapy, but volatile. Anything else? Nope, I don't think so. I'm missing the oakmoss. Pleasant for two three hours, yes, yes. Everything looks so clean and neat after shave. Male "unagitated". Doesn't hurt either. The After Shave of the same name can be layered very luxuriously because of me and so even escalating Brummel users leave only a pleasantly cultivated impression, which won't disturb anyone and won't really impress anyone. Also not in Wuppertal.
