The Tuxedo
Tuxedo! What a beautiful English word for tuxedo. A tuxedo is probably the highest form of evening dress for the gentleman. But not only for the gentleman. Women also prefer a tuxedo, and a ladies' tuxedo at that. Of course I find evening dresses beautiful to look at, but personally I have always been more fascinated by a lady in a tuxedo than a lady in an evening gown. Why is that? I have always liked the interplay of the sexes! Pure, sensual femininity paired with masculine elegance and severity. I think I know what I am talking about. Mrs.Can prefers this style exclusively for festivities and has already outperformed many an evening gown. In 1979 Ralph Lauren brought out Tuxedo and dedicated a fragrance to the garment of the same name, which olfactorically makes the boundaries between the sexes disappear.

Tuxedo has been designed for the evening, that much can be said. This perfume requires a certain strength and the firm will to smell "different" than its surroundings. Tuxedo begins in the top note with a good dose of aldehydes, in which very floral-spicy notes are hidden. The scent of tarragon and coriander rises, slightly underlaid with tart citric. This picture changes immediately. Flowery, dark notes move forward. Gardenia is very easy to recognize. Also lilies and narcissus and a very quiet fruitiness of peach. You'd think the perfume would get a certain sweetness from the floral notes, but it's hardly ever the case. It's very darkened by a very spicy-bitter old-school clove and kept in the fence. It alternates constantly between floral and spicy notes like a chameleon, and seems more dry and serious than cheerful and fresh. In the final base note, the boundaries blur completely. A very tart and rough leather blends in, which overrides everything that went before. Accompanied by still very real, rough-crystalline oakmoss and slightly sweetish resins of dry amber and spicy-soft benzoin, which is finally covered by a very deep, smoky-sensual vetiver, a very physical and deep musk chord completes Tuxedo final and lets the senses fly unrestrained.

Conclusion
Limits are to be exceeded there at least partially. If you wear Tuxedo you definitely do. It is extremely androgynous, unscrupulously provocative and eye-catching! If you could compare this perfume, it's like Piguet's Bandit. Also with this perfume, the boundaries between the sexes blur into a total work of art. Wearing this fragrance requires a certain courage and self-confidence, both as a woman and as a man. As a woman, you won't be the sweet princess in the evening with Tuxedo, and as a man you should like a certain floral touch. Tuxedo radiates a very unplayful, serious and deep eroticism that you hardly ever encounter anymore. In my opinion, Tuxedo is also not part of the evening. He belongs where the night begins! Unfortunately, Tuxedo is no longer available and if so, then only at very high sums. I was very lucky to get a special size at that time, which is not bigger than a mascara. Even this one had already cost a small fortune. What I can understand in retrospect! My special thanks go to Andrula, who is very much appreciated by me, without whom even I would not have come across Tuxedo and become aware of him
Dear A.
I thank you for that!
