If you kinda like the smell of an oldish vintage scent then this is for you. Smelling this I think of libraries and aged wood. It is a fragrance that feels a bit more mature but it wears AMAZINGLY and lasts all day long with two sprays. Wearable no matter your age
My title says it all. If I smelled my grandma wearing this, I'd compliment here on how lovely it smells.
But for me, it's a no-go.
The floral part of the scent wears quickly, leaving you with this musty heavy after smell (probably where grandma comes in).
What I could smell of the scent was pleasant. It's a very light scent, but with a pleasing floral scent. This is definitely not an easily noticed scent, but one that would require close quarters, or a sharp sense of smell to be noticed.
For a musky scent it's ok for the fall. If you don't have any musky scents it's ok. This just doesn't compete with Tom Ford Noir EDT or EDP.
If you want a more creamy musky scent get Noir. This scent however smells a little too floral.
Definitely a keeper. Very high quality juice that I wished lasted a little longer. Leans a bit more masculine in my opinion but I can see an older female pulling this one off. Projection is arms length for the first 3 hours then sits closer to the skin. Sillage is moderate... Not my manrose by etro but not bad at all!
On initial spray you are greeted with a very punchy dark rose. Almost a tuberose like scent but still more floral. I thought i had made a mistake by making this as my choice of the month. If you're willing to soldier on through the initial rosy blast you are in for a treat. After about the 20 minute mark the midnotes of citrus and spices begin to push into the forefront with the underlying rose still supporting and you begin to see the masterpiece that has been created. Finally, right around 45 minutes to an hour the combination of dark spices, amber and dark rose will give you that OH MY GAWD moment. This fragrance gives about a foot or two of projection and sillage. Give it a try if you're adventurous and you will not be disappointed. warning: that initial dark rose is very punchy!
