This expression can be applied in so many cases for me that it's already overused, but do you know that perfume which don't give anything for it and end being very surprised with? It was the case for me with Versus Uomo, almost now an obscure Versace scent that you barely hear anyone commenting. But they should since Versus is able to marry the best of two worlds in its oriental citrus harmony: the refreshing citruses, sometims very light and others more bitter, and the sweet complexity of the oriental structure. It's one of those fragrances that seems just a machine so well constructed that you enjoying pushing the button and seing it work just to admire its engines moving perfectly. This is a machine that works like a crescending scale of oriental tonalities, shy at the beginning, where the citrus which i mentioned reigns, and getting warming slowly on skin without having none abrupt phase. I like the lemon, the bitter petitgrain, the floral neroli hints, and this together with the spicy clove touch makes me think of high quality classic citrus. What makes it different for me is the floral part, the earthy and creamy orris and the base made of vanilla, tonka, cedar and rosewood, giving it a sweet, woody and creamy touch. It's a very beautiful perfume, don't let the lack of hype or pedigree fool you.
