Citric indeed.
My prescribers have already mentioned it several times. Citrus notes in various nuances play a very important role here. Slightly exaggerated, you might say: Something from the good old refreshment towels. ;-)
But that's not a bad thing in itself. I like this quite well as "refreshment" in summer.
Oldschool yes, as far as one would like to use this term for fragrances that are not in line with the current trend but have remained on the market for a long time. You have to do that first.
Now I don't write any more about the fragrance or its course. Others have already done this sufficiently and also well.
When I sprayed it on for the first time I had to draw a parallel to another fragrance in my assortment.
I can't make a comparison with the current Eau Sauvage now. Very well, but with Putting Green from Omerta and according to some perfumers it should come very close to the original Eau Sauvage.
The opening is actually the same for both of them. So after about 20 minutes I can see a slight difference in a direct comparison (left hand - right hand). I like Capucci a little bit better. Smells more pleasant, less synthetic.
Without this AB comparison it would probably be very difficult for me to keep these two fragrances apart. This may not be the case for others but for me these are actually "true" scent twins.
In other words, whoever has one really doesn't need the other.

Classic and classy (at an affordable price!)
Imagine a 35-40 years man, classy and refined, wearing a soft cardigan and sitting in in a vintage armchair while is reading a classic novel or the newspaper or while he's playing chess.
Well, this could be the kind of man who could wear and represent a timeless fragrance as Capucci pour homme.
A man who loves the details and doesn't give up on elegance but he's smart choosing not too expensive clothes, accessories and fragrances. Everyone could be a gentleman...
The character of this scent is the reflex of this man: interesting , with an aromatic opening accord made fizzier by a citrusy touch. The heart is round and a little bit fruity with also lavender touches and an unusual Jasmine note, very harmonised and not at all too sweet or too "feminine".
The base is a warm embrace of amber (just a touch and not too "oriental"), musk, moss (with its characteristic wooded touch) and a well measured patchouli, not too earthy. A good balanced composition lasting on the skin for many hours although the sillage isn't particularly strong, but discrete . So, you can wear this scent in the mid season as well as in winter by day, in the leisure time as well as at the office.
Let's take a look at the bottle: simple, minimal, classic but elegant . A timeless fragrance you can find at about 15-20€ (I'm reporting the price applied by the drugstores where I usually find this product).
So, gentlemen of all ages, class is an attitude, not a matter of budget. If you love the evergreen charm, don't hesitate to try and wear this scent!

Capucci pour nous tous
Classics from the 1960s with economical, sweeping lines, well-proportioned.

In the beginning it delights with strong unsour citrus fruits, framed by discreetly sweet anise and almost minty basil, and that for a wonderful quarter of an hour. Then, surrounded by a fine fresh herb and lavender green, the jasmine moves to the centre. Petite flowers, but not beguiling like the genuine jasmine (Jasminum officinale), rather gently bittersweet like the false jasmine (Pfeifenstrauch, Philadelphus coronarius) often found in German front gardens. The fragrance is soft and delicate, not soapy at all, therefore pour femme.

The perfume is as beautiful and well thought-out as the robes of Maestro Capucci, although not a nosecatcher like those eyecatchers, but of restrained elegance.

Nefertiti likes to wear the scent, and THIS garment, oh, would really fit synaesthetically:

* Thanks to FabianO and Capellusman, who lured me with their tireless comments to the older Italians on a fine track!

wonderfully fresh scent of the Italian early summer
at first straightforward lemony-spicy with a developing freshness potpourri that slowly hangeld to the soft amber and patchouli notes. What this scent has to do with Eau Sauvage as a "scent twin", however, is completely hidden from me, strangely to classify something like this as a twin - Well

Greatly helpful Review    25
Berlin is worth a visit ...!
Oh, you know ... so if I am already in Berlin, then I use the opportunity and let me cut my hair well-groomed.
If one finds otherwise hardly still, so a correct Herrenhaiseur old blow.

Yes, exactly - this is such a small shop, from the outside somewhat inconspicuous, easy to overlook.
Side street, clear.
A real insider tip!
Very attractively furnished, old interior, polished wood, antique mirrors ...
Shaving included.
Thoroughly, I tell you.

The owner is a kind old fogey, looks a little like fallen out of time.
Always perfectly dressed, vest ...
He's got really good manners.
"Behave" my great-grandfather would have called that...

Wait, I have to think ...
Krawuttke or Karbunke or something like that is his name.
So the hairdresser, not my great-grandfather.

No, the special thing is not the interior or the old-fashioned, perfect haircut. You see, if the old Krawuttke has taken you to his heart, then he will twist his magnificent white Kaiser Wilhelm memorial mustache, let his nickel glasses slide all the way to the tip of his nose and give you some advice from his extremely rich wealth of experience.
Especially when it comes to men's perfume, it is something like a walking encyclopedia for unusual, lesser known fragrances ...

That's the beauty of it! The old Karbunke always has the corresponding scent at hand.
The other day I went to see him again to get the hairdresser to fix my hair. Of course I had expected on this occasion ... yes of course!
Can you wait for it, I promise you.

This time it was something very special. I didn't know before.
A fragrance from 1967, you hear and marvel ...
Italian, yes.
Wonderful summer scent, I was immediately blown away.

Please...? Oh, I see. It's called Capucci. Capucci pour Homme, to be exact.
Yeah, you're right about that. A summer scent ... though ... i don't want to narrow him down to that.
But summer already fits quite well.

By the way, it has a very unusual opening, with anise playing into it. No, don't worry, this is not a dominant aroma, it illustrates the citric notes so to speak.
Lemon and bergamot are now in a men's fragrance, and even more so in an Italian fragrance, an absolute must. It's the same with Capucci. But what has excited me from the beginning and what makes this little water, as the old Knakowski would call it, a real classic is the embedding of the citric notes in a frame of basil and anise.

It's fresh, it's bright, it's clear and transparent and for that time rather unusual.
You see, it is the bouquet of basil and aniseed that gives petigrain and lime a certain persistence.
And persistent is this, you can believe me.

Then a wonderful, very discreet, brighter and lighter, but still present lavender breath joins in.
As the old Konitzke told me, this is especially emphasized by a dot of jasmine.
An extremely successful composition, I must say!

The freshness then becomes somewhat softer and drier after some time, but remains very light and transparent.
The pleasant dryness is due to the fact that the scent is aerated in a certain way, says the old Kowalski.
Amber and musk, of course, that belongs in a serious, discreet and classic men's fragrance.
Zistrose should also be inside, but I must have missed it ...

No, so you don't have to worry about that.
There's really nothing sweet about this fragrance.

No, no, there's no way... I agree. After all, you're not 20 anymore ...
Classic, yes, absolutely.
Citric opening, very discreet and fresh, underlaid with basil and anise, which makes the whole thing very bright and pleasantly cool, without letting it drift in arbitrariness.
The recognition effect is high, I can assure you that.
Lavender structures the fragrance, which then amberates after eight hours, dry and discreetly ends.

Very recommendable, not everyone has. Is a real rarity!
No, unfortunately no longer manufactured.
Old Krajewski regretted that too. However, there are still numerous remainders, and that for small money.
I stocked up...
You know, the old carrot is absolutely right - a classic never goes out of fashion.

Oh...? Well, if you are in the area anyway, then go to the men's salon Kokoschinski times!
You won't be disappointed!

And say hello to the old man for me!

Sublime Sweaty Lemon...
*This is a review of vintage Capucci pour Homme

Capucci pour Homme opens with a nose tingling sharp lemon and green petitgrain tandem with a mild supporting herbal accord. As the composition moves to is early heart the lemon and mild herbs remain as the lemon turns less sharp, with gentle oakmoss rising from the base coupling with moderate aromatic lavender as joint support. During the late dry-down the lemon and herbal aspects vacate as the composition turns slightly musky and woody with leather-like labdanum taking over as star through the finish. Projection is average and longevity excellent at well over 12 hours on skin.

Capucci pour Homme is one of those compositions that is extremely pleasant smelling, making it very difficult to over-spray. The composition has been likened by many to Channel pour Monsieur, but honestly I don't smell much of a similarity between the two. To my nose it is much closer to vintage YSL pour Homme, with what can best be described as a mutual sweaty herbal lemon accord. No, the two are not the same, becoming all the more clear as the herbal lemon morphs to leathery labdanum and smooth musky woods in Capucci pour Homme, but their respective first halves of development definitely occupy similar space. In short, Capucci pour Homme is a very impressive, relatively light, easy to wear composition, making it great for just about any occasion imaginable year-round. The bottom line is the discontinued vintage Capucci pour Homme is a great offering from the house that should appeal to fans of old school compositions, vintage YSL in particular, earning it an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and a strong recommendation. Vintage and original formula bottles can be found on the aftermarket for under $1 per ml making Capucci pour Homme a good blind buy candidate.

Classic and citrusy-aromatic, it's a good "gentleman scent" at a very affordable price. Not bad the longevity and the sillage. Timeless.+3

Vintage jewel that costs pocket change.
One of the best citrus openings I've experienced.
With an Armani label it would cost 10 times more.+4
