In My opinion this is the best fragrance in the world, Sexy, sophisticated, a true gentleman scent. I have about six bottles of this fragrance I first bought this in the eighties, Alain Delon is a famous french actor and brought out his own line of men and women fragrance, this is the most unique scent I've ever worn and people are always asking me what it is as it drives women crazy, sadly discontinued now but can still be found on Ebay, Mr Delon please bring it back
Wonderful! It reminds me of Paco Rabanne for Men. I bought five bottles a couple of years ago and I am glad I did since it's now discontinued. A wonderful fragrance in a solid big square bottle! Long-lasting, too!
It opens with very nice spices and citrus in a typical 80s style, and within minutes on my skin, starts to reveal the slightly-candied sweetness of aldehydes. The aromatic woods in the base instantly reminds me of Rochas Lui, while retaining a good dose of the citrus in the background, and the benzoin gives it a nice incense-y and slightly powdery texture. There is very mild tint of green bitterness from the moss near the end. How this is discontinued is beyond me. IMO, this could do very well in this day and age.
I not sure about the sample I have… It doesn’t seem quite right and it’s even an official carded sample. The sample reminds me a lot of Yatagan, which I strongly dislike. It doesn’t remind me of 3rd Man or Santos, which are two of my favorites. Actually, my sample seems to be a sample gone horribly bad, but then, I think of my bottle of Yatagan as something gone horribly bad. I guess I need to find another source for a sample of this just to make sure… in the mean time I have to vote thumb’s down... That something in the top notes is just too annoying to me. It has a very good long, long lasting mossy / cedar drydown, though.
Interesting green citrus opening that dries down into a powdery green vanilla. Smells a bit "old man" but that's just my perspective. It does smell good.
