    Best of Chevignon, in its weakness, timidity, and particularly unoriginality, begins in a similar way, but with a much fouler addition, than its contemporary, Bulgari Pour Homme. The foul addition is one whose exact smell, while recognizable, I would not like to pinpoint; look far down the human body to its lowest extremities for the likeness of this smell. Soon, the central notes boyishly drag their feet, clad in sandals, tattered blue jean cuffs dragging in the mud behind them, to the first and foremost reason of this bland, unoriginal scent's conception. When the 30 year old girly-man, emboldened by his choice of a Scent That Girls Like, asks one what she thinks of it, she sniffs the air, detecting no trace.

    Light citrus and green aromatic accords based on a light woody bottom. Quite nice but not for those would dislike subtleness.

    A bit like the original Chevignon( even the bottles are quite alike) for men from 1992 with a more marine, aquatic twist. Maybe this pair of scents is reminding of a much more famous duo: Boss Elements and Elements Aqua, not only beacuse of the concept and the two versions of a concept, but even the notes are not that different, while Chevignon for men is an earthy, leathery, more conservative scent like Elements, Best of Chevignon is, just like Elements Aqua, lighter, more unisex, crisp, fruity. Oddly, I tested this scent at a time with another Boss scent, Hugo dark blue, and compared to the latter, best of Chevignon was much better recieved of people in my company as it smelled, so they said, more masculine than Hugo dark blue( considering that typical Hugo sweetness it might be true). This one is (de-)lightfully aromatic, pushing the grren notes further than in other Chevignon scents, fresh, youthful enough to be considered modern, yet elaborate, elegant, masculine( even if listed as unisex), long-lasting enough to be a classic. So, besides Chevignon for men, another incumbent classic, with a more easy-going, yet not necessarily casual, experimental, playful approach.

    When they say it’s the best of chevignon, there’s something there that makes me want to believe them. And whenever I smell this one, I kind of agree. It’s very nice, but somewhat demure, understated and shy scent, that has nice sillage for a while but it has some logevity issues.
    It’s a good thing that we can smell the bergamot and mandarine on the top notes more than the banana leaves. Ever smelled a banana leaf? You don’t want to show up to a restaurant or to a date smelling like that, believe me.
    The geranium mid notes manage to stay cool and the base woods are interesting but they don’t last too long to say that they were of really top quality, or maybe they were very washed down to make it cheaper. In short, it’s nice, I also agree that it’s unisex and i had to say it because there are some scents that are labeled unisex but tend to go more to one side or the other,and this one fits right in the middle...the lightness of it all adds to it, but it’s not what I’d call memorable.

    The Best of Chevignon is a very pleasant scent. It begins with an agreeable citrus / ozonic accord—light, smooth, youthfully attractive. The middle continues the citrus theme with the addition of an attractive bourbon geranium note to enrich the heart. Even this heart of the scent is refreshing and clean, although it is a little bland. Somewhere between the mid notes and the base, the scent turns a little soapy. The base is wood, wood, and more wood—but this is not a heavy base—it is actually quite light and comfortable. Again, the airiness and clarity of the scent predominates. This is a good scent for someone who wants an enjoyable and long-lasting citrus with a light wood base. I agree with Russlan that it is quite youthful and is actually a unisex fragrance.

    I really thought I was going to like this one a lot. With the topnotes described, it seemed to be something I would enjoy. But the boozy fruitiness is a little too slanted to the feminine side. I would probably enjoy this more on my girlfriend.
