Reviews of Drakkar

Musky brown Seventies thing.

Spicy chypre with a nutmeg theme - and with resiny evergreens and aromatics - and this is crossed with an oriental.
And then, on top of that, cedar and citrus to bind them
...
which feels like Pino Sylvestre meets Old Spice in the land of Bilbo Baggins.

Time to unearth the Prog Rock albums from your dad's attic...

I don’t get the mushy shit over this. I mean, is it old Men trying to relive their lives and awful choice of perfume? Drakkar is a ‘terrible’ scent!

Drakkar smells exactly like a slice of lemon meringue pie that’s been smashed into a 2 week old ashtray minus the butts. It’s a nicotine soaked lemon icky shit bomb that’s floral in the worst way and just straight up stinks like cig breath bathed in musky floral grossness with an oakmoss/musk nuke behind it. Old lady, no other way around it.

This is straight up gross. Furthermore... the dry down absolutely ‘reeks’ of that old lady perfume sillage! That disgusting musky oakmoss bullshit that removes the air from your lungs and just genuinely pisses you off because every Woman that wears that garbage wears a gallon of it so it trails forever... as in from one end of the grocery isle to the other. You know ‘exactly’ what I’m talking about. Same here. Fuck this perfume. I wasted 3 bills on this which took forever to resell.

This nasty ass perfume is nearly 50 years old. Even if I was around back in 72’ to sport this, I wouldn’t. It stinks. Smells exactly like a loose ashtray in a 2 bit bar with the squeezed lemons from Long Island ice teas marinating in it with all those resinous black nicotine tobacco bits stuck to and mashed into the ashtray over and over... minus the spent and thrown out butts of course. Plastic ashtray of course which is the worst!

I've developed an appreciation for "old people" fragrances that I didn't have when I started. This is from an era of barbershop notes and projection. Drakkar has an citrus and Lavender opening, with moss and cedar dry-down. Great projection and longevity. I'd wear it occasionally for nostalgia, but not regularly.

Drakkar is an iconic piece of classic which conjures me deeply my youth as it was surrounded by "aromatic charming men" and disappeared impeccable class. Immensely virile and casual fragrance. Moss, jasmine and lavender (especially the latter) are the hits of this dynamic juice, so fresh and out going. The aromatic (pine/juniper/coriander centered) vibe is in here subdued in comparison with the follower (and market cracker) Drakkar Noir while in here I finally get more soapy (ambery) spiciness, muskiness and citrus. Anyway, there is a solid common basis shared by these two Guy Laroche's creations. The Drakkar's dry down unfolds jasmine, bergamot/lavender, patchouli and oakmoss in remarkable amount, overall soothed by soapy amber and a touch of leather. Anyway another hard to find gem with an immensely evocative power on me.

Pearl from the past. Lavender centered in one of the classiest possible ways. So sad it Has been discontinued. A wealthier relative is nowadays Sartorial by Penhaligon s, with enhanced complexity however.
