Davidoff fragrance notes

Reviews of Davidoff

Smells like a perfectly aged Cigar. Just the right amount of humidity, greenness and complexity. Amazing balance and elegance. For special evening wear.

This is a traditional opening of the cypre style: lemon, a moderately boozy wormwood note, the mandatory bergamot and a good sprinkle of basil all over it - the good old-fashioned style. And, as the script demands, the oak moss.

On me the oak moss arises quite early in the drydown; a beautiful, rich, rough and crisp oak moss of great quality. Yum yum! Thyme and jasmin - the latter the main floral - round off what makes a good cypre.

In the base the moss is still going strong, with added crispness supplies by a very decent patchouli that is not too dark, and whilst castoreum supplies an added touch of sharpness; the whole works together beautifully.

The performance is absolutely outstanding: strong sillage, brilliant projection and and incredibly superb longevity of nigh seventeen hours on my skin - a longevity monster in the same league as Knize Ten or Creed’s Orange Spice on me.

This autumnal beauty as a paradigmatic classic of a traditional chypre. The quality of the ingredients is excellent, and the blending done very well without losing too much structure. Maybe Davidoff’s finest. 4.25/5.

Not pretty.

No, and thankfully so because it's what I apparently like most in a masculine fragrance for men. Not much if any floral and there's a dense strength to it that might best be described as a tobac-amber. Sure, leather and moss too, but it's that ambery bit that'll choke me out if mis-used.

I spray to the sternum under a tee and polo or button-down mostly and certainly so for these strong ones. It's always worked best for me and Davidoff '84 is certainly not the exception to my rule. I spray this to the neck, ears, hands, etc., and get what I deserve... too much. Like ericrico says 'it'll wear you' if you don't watchit.

"Old school is the best school"? Yesss!
"They don't make 'em like this anymore"? Check.
"I'll take 'Big Fat Fuggin' Chypres' for $200, Mr. Trebek"? Oh, yeah!
And so on.

Overly expensive in secondary markets... Vermeil for Men shares a lot with this one yet they're different enough. A great scent for a boss in an office environment IF worn properly. And no, not 'like a boss' (queue the snoopy-diggity-dawg background musak), rather what a respectable supervisor would smell of and certainly not be broadcasting.

Davidoff by Davidoff is an outstanding men's fragrance, on par with the original Boss No. 1: an office fragrance with animalic intrigue. Fragrances for men from around this time are my favorite.

Stardate 20161022:

A Masculine powerhouse- Moss and Musk bomb.

A lot like Vermeil Pour Homme with a tad less patchouli. Might be redundant to own both.
And if you want to own one Vermeil might be the way to go as it is cheaper and available.

Lasts longs and projects well.

Nothing bad here and FBW but I don't think it deserves the veneration accorded to it by this board.

I'm not much into writing reviews, partly because I don't consider myself a good nose & more importantly, you can't surpass other wonderful reviewers here on BE, however, hereare my 2 cents...

You love oakmoss - seek out this fragrance. One of the best oakmoss laden 80's powerhouses. The initial blast is so powerful that I'm reminded immediately of ericrico's words - if you are not good enough, this scent will wear you!!!

A masterpiece that is a must own IMHO.
