A Stranger
Ouch, a men's perfume from 1998. Let's think back in fashion terms: it was the phase of the smoothly polished, the heyday of rimless glasses - even away from doctors and manager types. Men were clean-shaven. Beard, hair, rimless glasses, masculine? Ewwwwww, please don't. Back then, anything slick was kind of pop culture. Now there they were wearing their graphite grey jackets and white shirts and the buzzed haircut (not too short please - and certainly not too long!). The hype of the metrosexual was already in its infancy, but not yet visible.

Today this then style summarized: Oh, please do not stand out! The brute excesses of 80s hairspray shoulder pads were gone, the opposite was true: Smooth. Unisex. Light. Asexual. Discreet. Wispy. Clean. Dotcom bubble. PC with Windows 98.

From this time of the late 90s springs the "S.T. Dupont pour Homme" and is quite a child of its time. But what for one! In advance: I really like him. Because apparently one could create quite original fragrances even in this chlorine-pure style bubble, which survived this time and proved to be timeless.

The flacon, in any case, you can see the origin of this era. Cool, clean, minimal. Hardly flashy, a little silver and yet elegant as timeless. So one that is overlooked in the collection and yet sparkles again like a small gemstone.

The fragrance itself is idiosyncratic as well as stylish - yet a clean fragrance of its time. His only cliffhanger is - as previous speakers said - his so-called "mustiness". I say: yes, it smells. But no, please, not "musty"! Because I associate that negatively, my impression, on the other hand, is positive.

To me, this scent chord reminds me of freshly fried food in better restaurants. And I don't mean nasty meat, but freshly fried vegetables in a batter coating. There it is now on the plate and smells, not even penetrating, but fine, nutty, crispy and warm. Frittatas can be divine. Given good fat and proper craftsmanship, it transforms neutrals into a simply gourmet dish. Belgian fritters from good "fritteries" send their regards.

I do like comparisons. And this frittaty, this one accord, reminds me of Penhaligon's "Belgravia Chypre". That rather celebrated fragrance also had this funny twist, which we unanimously identified as "Belgian fritter shop" during the checkup. A great scent, by the way. And this one has that one from S.T. Dupont now, too. And that twenty years earlier. Applause!

Today, the "S.T. Dupont pour Homme" no longer costs the bean. Yes, he is distribution-wise on the siding of all Cheapies. Since I say: buy now more than ever. A real character piggy among the cheapies.

The music to the fragrance ---> the Belgian national anthem "La Brabançonne" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9u_Ituu2Q8 )

A better Declaration!
A really nice surprise to say the least. I have tried some other S.T. Dupont’s fragrances and they all seemed just a tad below mediocre for me, except the barely-decent Signature and the quite decent Intense version of Homme. But this one is definitely good instead. Briefly said, it is a sort of brighter, more floral and at the same time, more smoky version of Cartier’s Declaration, less heavy exactly where I wished Declaration to be so – that is, less heavy on spices, mostly cardamom (can’t really stand that in such strong doses) and cumin. Less spicy, less (for me) overwhelmingly linear and bold – less boring too, honestly. Basically a quite better version of Declaration, for my tastes. It smells more breezy, more fresh, slightly greener but also more smooth in a dark, smoky way. I think there is some iris or violet here, as I clearly get a really pleasant touch of something soft and slightly powdery. Plus, on the drydown it pops out a really enjoyable whiff of something fruity-musky, a bit like rose but more fruity and less floral. Fresh, crisp and refined, highly wearable, classy in an “informal” and versatile way, totally solid and well made for me. It would make a really decent and totally inexpensive signature scent. Recommended!

7-7,5/10

So weak - it lasted 15 minutes on me - tops. Ordinary smell. Disgusted - threw it in the bin.

Déclaration's twin brother. Came out in the same year and with the same dna, just more airy, floral and powdery. Like a diet coke. Good! 3/5
