    Aramis Fragrance Notes

    Aramis information

    Aramis was launched by Estee Lauder Companies in September 1964 in New York and then in the UK, exclusively in Harrods at first in 1965. It has remained popular ever since and is a true classic fragrance. The Aramis range has grown and includes a wide range of shaving, hair, bath and body products. Aramis Gold was launched in 1998, which has a scent based on the original Aramis.

    Aramis Classic is a fantastic, solid, powerful and – as the name goes – more than classic leather chypre, so austere and straightforward it smells almost like a canon of prototypical masculinity in perfumery. Dark and bold, warm and with just a thin feel of “macho”, basically centered around leather, herbs, aldehydes, classic “manly” flowers (jasmine, lavender) and a base accord of oak moss and woods – all of this at least in the vintage EDC version I own, which is the only version I’ve worn so far of this fragrance. I got it for $12 and it has a fantastic depth rich in “aged” density (and a nuclear sillage). Great flowers, great leather, impressive oak moss. Everlasting drydown. A timeless, no-frills, dark masculine manifesto. The cheesy American cousin of Hermès Bel Ami. Conventional, but not outdated and not boring at all – simply a bold, comforting classic. As I said I do not know the actual version, I’m sure it’s great too, but personally, generally if a vintage version of a scent exists, then I’d go for that “a priori”. Anyway, beautiful!

    I remember my dad wearing this, and hold it dear for that reason. He would over the moon if he got this on any occasion as a gift. I tried it recently and I think this is what a fragrance on man should be. You feel really fresh and clean aslo while is stings, like the devil you cant help by feeling alive. You walk down the stairs, and everyone one loves it. No wonder it was such popular scent. Fresh clean and seductive. Manly in world not like some of the modern fragrances, which seem a tad, does he swing this way or that? The ingredients or whatever they have leave you skin feeling zesty, tingling and alive. You can just imaging coming out of a Sicilian Barbers shop donned in sharp suit, and walking with girls turning their heads behind you, whilst you in a unknown hiterto fashion think damn close shave with that cut throat razor, now what am I going to have for tea. If Aramis was drink it would have to be a G&T with ice and slice! Timeless classic. You know Virigil Tibbs in the Heat of the Night would be sporting this, and strolling with a swagger!

    Genre: Leather

    Because it’s cheap, plentiful, and been around forever, a scent like Aramis is easy to take for granted. I hadn’t given it a serious wearing for decades before writing this review, and I’d entirely forgotten just how good it is. My mistake.

    Aramis has a distinctive set of tart citrus and herbaceous top notes. They will be a bit sour for some tastes, but they do a fine job of snapping the nose to attention before they meld into an earthy leather, moss, and patchouli accord that serves as Aramis’s foundation. The structure would seem utterly conventional in the “men’s club” leather chypre mode were it not for a conspicuous and beautiful sweet jasmine note that’s as startlingly incongruous in this context as a potted orchid in the Dallas Cowboys locker room. In a word: brilliant!

    The juxtaposition of the delicate white flower and the castoreum-seasoned leather generates sparks that propel Aramis through a long developmental trajectory, during which the leather becomes progressively more animalic, the patchouli “dirtier,” and the moss more prominent. When, after a few hours’ wear, the jasmine finally retires, what remains through the drydown is mostly moss, patchouli, and a labdanum-heavy off-dry amber. Aramis projects well off of the skin and provides plenty of sillage, so that it can be detected a few feet away and remains hanging in the air for some time after the wearer leaves the room. While both traits are desirable in the abstract, they can be problematic in situations (the office, business meetings,) where understatement and discretion are in order. My advice is to apply sparingly and enjoy an enduring classic of masculine perfumery. Any ladies out there who enjoy Bandit or Tabac Blond, would do well to give Aramis a shot as well!

    Aramis is a cold mistress.

    Or put differently, Aramis is about as warm as one of Neptune's moons, or as vibrant as Nefertiti's frozen gaze on the wall of a tomb.

    When my wife first smelled this, she said, "it smells like stargazer lilies, mixed with wolf urine." Don't quite know where she's smelled wolf urine before, but you get the point.

    For me, Aramis is one of the most elemental of modern colognes. And though I hate the smell of stargazers, I can get past the floral top notes to appreciate the deeper basenotes underneath. But somehow I wish the sandalwood (or something) on the dry-down were a bit warmer--that it would make just a small concession to frivolity and lighten up. However, for me Aramis is too much "all work and no play." It's just unyielding. And while I respect it and wear it occasionally, I can't say it's a fragrance that truly gives me pleasure.
