If this cologne were a wine, it would be described as complex. While not a personal favorite of mine, it gets an A for effort.
First, the head notes are clean and fresh and they escape quickly and settle into the heart notes. This is where the shock hits you. A good review of a scent comes from the perceived aroma that it emits rather than summary of the ingredients. That is what makes this cologne unique.
As the heart notes came out, I had to really think about what I was smelling, then it hit me — an Indian restaurant. I couldn't believe it, I was smelling curry (the spice, not the basketball player) and I was seriously stunned by it.
I have tried a lot of cologne over the years and this was a first for me, it is a very intriguing scent. It seems to have a weak wake and needs reapplied frequently, but it is a cologne - not a parfum - so that was expected.
It is a masculine smelling cologne, but I cannot decide what occasion it is best suited for due to the general impression of the scent, which, in part, makes me wonder if others also detect the smell of curry.
My best guess is that an older male would appreciate Heritage Tricorn more than a younger person and wear it to a more formal gathering simply because it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else.
If you are adventurous enough, give this cologne a whirl.
