interesting and also quite cool scent,
i think. In the beginning orange and lemon, slightly acidic with aldehydes. Later then slightly smoky, quite soapy with a very beautiful tobacco blossom running out. With tobacco in general I always have so my problems, because you make 5-10 years older in one fell swoop, if then oakmoss in addition still properly ... Methuselah... pardon me, I digress. This is not the case here, everything remains quite fresh and/or tinted. The fragrance itself does not radiate far, but is clearly perceived and that is what makes it so interesting. Smelling very close to his wrist, he has a fabulous, slightly sweet, green depth, which I think is owed to moss - wonderful. I'd like to wear it more often, but I think it's the cardamom, which suits him, but unfortunately always goes against my grain somewhere. I think he always has something slightly nauseating in constant fire, but that's subjective. Nevertheless, a very well made, distinguished, beautiful companion who does well.

The best blind buy!
I appreciate Oldschooldüfte very much, Open was also very cheap to get and the summary information told me odourless. No pine and no pine needles! So it came that I ordered the Open blind and it was a direct hit. Tobacco in one of its most beautiful forms, plus the initial freshness of lemon and bergamot which makes it appear like a higher concentrated cologne. Spicy notes are added by the thyme and by the sage and lavender a light soapiness results in the background, whereby I think that also here with aldehydes was not spared.

Overall, Open is one of my favorite classics. I don't think Open has anything old-fashioned or dusty about it and it's easy to wear nowadays, especially when you get tired of all the sweet stuff!

Also the durability of the reformulated version is very good and the Sillage is at least in the first hour still well perceptible. It's a shame his last lesson also came to an end. It's best to quickly secure a bottle before the prices go towards the moon!
