A gentleman who enjoys but is by no means silent!
I have been passionately researching the traditional German Scherk brand since my early days at Parfumo.
Just like Dralle, Gustav Lohse, Schwarzlose or one of the other German companies founded in pre-war times, Scherk can look back on an eventful history, which has also produced some exciting fragrance creations in the course of time
Most of them have been forgotten nowadays and the rare specimens in mostly stylish bottles with artistically designed labels only appear once in a while at online auctions and achieve corresponding prices with collectors.

We are currently experiencing a trend of rediscovering old brands and Scherk is also back after the years of immersion.
And that exactly where the story began in 1906: in Berlin.

Tars Gentle Mann is one of the three fragrances recently launched and I would like to describe my impressions to you...

The citrus-fresh entry provides for a clean appearance, the fine fruity and only discreetly flowery aromas, however, are very soon referred by more dominant spicy elements to the back places.
"So "Intense" quickly takes the lead here at Eau de Cologne and the finely spiced pepper notes mate with equally intense ginger and powerful cardamom.

A threesome that quickly picks up speed and quite self-confidently sweeps through the streets with an oriental touch!
The gentleman, who at first is so elegantly reserved, is here going through the horses?

With such a spice mixture he must make sure that he gets the curve, otherwise there is danger to drive the cart against the wall...

A strong heart also needs a solid base and the gentleman from Berlin can always show that.
The Ambroxan was obviously not dosed very stingy and so the synthetic amber chord powert in a unfortunately a little bit shower-aerated insignificance as if there was no tomorrow until the last breath.

The balsamic-woody notes, by Ilias Ermenidis classically combined with patchouli and vetiver, have hardly a chance to gain a foothold.
Too bad, because just this fine powdery slightly incense elegance would suit the gentleman well and make him exactly that for which one appreciates a true gentleman.

Nevertheless the fragrance lives up to its name, because who says that a gentleman may not show temperament?

Score points can score the new scherkchen creations in any case with an excellent design.

With clear lines inspired by the Bauhaus style and unmistakable lettering from the renowned Atelier Christian von der Heide, each of the three fragrance creations was bathed in a matching shade of colour With the Gentle Man one would suspect at first the restrained grey, but the smell test shows:
Striking red sets the tone here and does justice to the not at all shy contemporary in any case.

Tars Gentleman does not meet my taste unfortunately, all the more I am glad to be allowed to introduce soon also the two other smells.
And without anticipating too much: there is already a clear favourite...
