Winfried Jedediah Puch - from image change and unchanging values
"I have a package here for W. Puch! Can you please accept it?"
- "Winfried Jedediah Puch. That's me. Thank you!" opened the other side of the intercom in a deep, bass-bottomed, grumpy voice.
"I wonder how long this will take? I have sooo many packages to deliver! It's not my fault, is it?" mused the delivery boy. Why was this taking so long? He rang the doorbell again, just as the door opened and an imposing figure appeared.
"Oh, hey man, sorry. Here's the package. A signature please!"
- "Nuuun, I just had to take 64 steps upstairs, please forgive the wait."
"Alright, guy. You still have the pesto on your face. I know you just ate. And what's that smell all over the hallway? Any herbs for bolognese?" He didn't speak it. He had been admonished to be polite with the clientele.
With an emphatically casual paw, Winfried Jedediah Puch took a small bill from the shiny leather wallet in his jacket, then used it to stroke his mustache and adjust his monocle.
"Hey, thanks a lot! You didn't have to do that! But...man, I know you from somewhere. Aren't you..."
- "Winfried Jedediah Puch, young man. You're doing a fantastic job!"
Was there any honey on the banknote? Something was stuck here. But what did it matter, money doesn't stink.
"Oh, sorry! You just remind me so much of someone, someone from my childhood. And of honey, funnily enough."
- "Haha, yeah. That is indeed funny!" A paw, there was no other way to call his oversized, hairy hands, landed in his mouth and he licked his lips almost unnoticed afterwards. Almost, anyway. Kind of a weird guy. But what the hell, at least he wasn't as 'friendly' as the other 573 customers I had to deliver to today. How old is he anyway? 50? 16? There was something wrong with him.
"I've got to go then, have a nice day dude!"
- "Young man! That's no way to talk!" but that he was visibly flattered, even a blind man with a cane could see, "thank you very much, I wish you a honeyed, er, wonderful day too! Because today is my favorite day!"
"Oh yeah, what day is it?"
- "It's today! My favorite day."
Frowning, he hurried back to his van. What the hell, off to work. No more dawdling for the rest of the day. But he was still relatively new at his job, so he hoped his boss would forgive him.

Meanwhile, Winfried Jedediah Puch was back in his apartment, happily opening the package.
He laughed to himself, for outwitting this young man had been easier than opening a honey pot. "Mhhmmmm, Hoooonig!" He lit his second cigar with relish.
That should ensure that his voice would deepen by at least a seventh in no time, at least that was how Chris had warned him about smoking. "Good old Christopher! I'm sure he'll be delighted with this delivery!"
Winfried Jedediah took in the contents of the package weighing about half his body weight. "Hach, what a noble drop!" He adjusted his monocle and made some notes in the table on the rums and bourbons he was still recommended to test. He had marked all the ones that contained honey with hearts in pencil, but then - he was already 16, after all - erased them.
He wanted to finally get rid of his honeyed image and make a name for himself as an adult, even if he secretly had no idea whether he had just ordered bourbon or whiskey or rum.
It was just part of being an adult.
He toasted his reflection in the mirror above the hallway.
"Here's to you, Winfried Jedediah Puch. Here's to people welcoming you into their world as warmly as your alter ego, Winnie Puch!"

They would

The Black Soul of a Man in Black
I have been owning Capucci Anima Nera for almost three months now, waiting for a cooler season, and soon the right time has come. If you are anything like me, you'll know that lately, Roberto Capucci has been releasing colognes that remind, but are not a rip-off, the most sought-after and expensive scents like Aventus Creed (Evento), Bleu de Chanel (Blu Water), and Dior Sauvage (l' Homme Suave) just to mention a few. Right of the bat, when I noticed this latest release on the shelf, labeled Anima Nera (e.g. Black Soul) my mind thought about Black Afgano, yet I was wrong.
When I smelled it, I immediately put a scene in my head: silk shirts and dark leather couches, a good cigar and an aged Islay whiskey. I feel like there's a story with every note of this perfume. Anima Nera is miles apart from Black Afgano, it is something in the same room as V&R Spicebomb and Bvlgari Man in Black and ain't a secret that the two of them are interchangeable and closely akin one another.

By the way, let's see what sort of juice is hidden in such a black bottle with a golden cap. First things first, intrepid and charismatic, the Capucci Anima Nera EDP is a contemporary neo-Oriental fragrance that presents irresistible and contrasting masculinity, appearing as a vibrant, powerful and utterly compelling aroma. It opens with the intensity of a boozy liqueur and peppery spices, yet there is a hint of smoky and sweet tobacco that doesn't smell like cigarette smoke but a little like cinnamon to me. The spice accord doesn’t go too overboard and seems to be tempered by the leather and tobacco notes which is a smooth complement to the main notes, it is subtle and smells manly, and it has somewhat of a CH Men Prive vibe in the opening and Spicebomb as well.

The extremely seductive combination of the opening notes sparks a captivating contrast with a blooming heart of hypnotic tuberose and powdery iris. Rarely used the tuberose flower in a masculine fragrance, the flower is a magnetic ingredient traditionally used in women’s perfumes, which flawlessly shines here among the spices and resins. And the iris is powdery, dusty, without the lipstick effect. Both iris and tuberose are not dominant, play in the background, and well blend with prestigious leather.

In the base, an ambery combination of dainty resins like benzoin I guess, sweet coumarin essence from vanilla pods or maybe roasted tonka beans, and woody dark notes show their irresistible appeal. As Anima Nera dries down, the tuberose starts to fade and the iris turns its volume down to an agreeable level.

Performance is good, longevity is decent, not sure about sillage, even though the woman sitting next to me yesterday evening was pleasantly sniffing every whiff of it. As an EDP, the scent lasts almost half the day and then you can touch up just before you knock off for it to go on for the rest of the day. On what occasions will I wear it to? Parties with my friends or to meet that special person whom I want to impress, evening and dinner out and clubbing in cold weather when it’s crisp outside, fall and winter are perfect for it. It is Voluptuous, Sultry, Dark, Intoxicating, Spicy, Opulent and Mysterious. Not everyone loves it, but the ones who do, seem to go nuts for it. That’s always a plus, in addition to me, really liking to wear it.

A simple, cute and modern perfume.
Capucci Anima Nera, to my nose, is a rather linear and simple perfume. In some cases this can be an advantage. Starting with the all black bottle with the gold colored cap it denotes a certain elegance and refinement. I think it's an attempt to somehow simulate Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme and equals 90%! I smell a pleasant bergamot accompanied by vanilla, spices and light woods. In my opinion of the Capucci line, with the original Capucci, is the best! I paid 13 euros for it, without shipping, and I am satisfied with the purchase. In my opinion the performances are quite modest in terms of sillage. However this sweetly citrus, vanilla and spicy scent is absolutely pleasant!

Black soul indeed
V&R Spicebomb lovers will love this. Between Spicebomb edt and Spicebomb Extreme, that's where Anima Nera sits.
Spicy, dark, woody and peppery. A black suit in a lovely evening will fit this perfectly. The smell is obviously not cheap to me. I caught this for a great deal, somewhere around 10€.
Now it's very hard to find at least in my area. I am very glad to have it.
The performance is not weak either.
7-8 hours at least or even more if you forget to stop from spraying.
Projection is also strong and noticeable. Colder nights will be warmer with this fragrance around.
You can obviusly try it for the daytime as well but in my opinion it's better suited for the night time, being spicy, rich and dense, creamy.
One of the best cheap fragrances in my entire collection. I can even say that will easily be in top 5.
Awesome bottle, awesome sprayer and 100ML for such a low price ?
Almost to good to be true. You have also awesome quality. No cheap smelling at all. Masculine and mysterious.
If you like/love spicebomb/spicemob extreme and see this popping up for a good price, don't let it slip away because it is so damn good.
Overall 8.1/10

My first CAPUCCI.......and sadly the only one!
I was hasitating between Anima Nera, Suave and Blu Water (there was no Evento in online shop) and decided to give a chance of the darker one. Pretty box, cheap looking bottle and more cheaper cap. Nothing to be proud of. A had seen a few comparisons to Spicebomb OG and BVL Man in Black and tested these two in local mall(very expensive to my budget). But didn`t found Spicebomb Extreme.
Anima Nera to me is something like 75% BVL MiB and 25% Spicebomb OG. Smells like dense, thick cup of good hot tea, but can`t definе exectly what kind, maybe some mix of mild spicy ones.
I really love the scent profil, but even overspraing, it last no more than 6 hours on skin and clothes, then fades quick. The bottle is bulky to carry and respray through the day.
Regret to not buying the others ones from the line. They was only 10 EUR per 100ml and now are out of stock.

Miles apart from Black Afgano, Anima Nera is something in between V&R Spicebomb and Bvlgari Man in Black, more closely akin to the latter!
