Reviews of Etienne Aigner

Excellent leather fragrance, the patch is reminiscent of Givenchy Gentleman to me (which came out a year before), while the vetiver and gentle vanilla presages Heritage (by decades) it sits in the company of greats
Soft spoken, it doesn't wear you. Classy stuff.
Longevity is a bit lacking but I don't mind, this guy doesn't need to raise its voice

Knowing Chanel Pour Monsiuer, this fragrance, Etienne Aigner, is what I imagine Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree should smell like. Chanel decided to do something a little different when they finally got around to making Pour Monsieur Concentree in 1989. For people who think it should have smelled more like Pour Monsieur, Etienne Aigner could be the solution. It's an oak moss bomb.

This is the scent of my Ivory DB9, if I had one.

In fact this is the scent of my Ivory DB9 after years of wearing Vintage Bel Ami within and I am dead and gone.

It is a smoothed out, gentrified 60's Leather, Musky Spicy thing.

It doesn't light up, it glows a warm caramel.

Superb,luxurious,sleeper.

And yes, I'll take that Ivory one over there. The one with the Caramel leather and rubbed Mahogany dash.

This is a super smooth leather chypre from 1975. The 70's and 80's conjure up images of loud music, big hair and fragrances that matched this mentality of excess . Not so with Aigner #1.

Aigner's first foray opens with an alcoholic blast of spicy citrus that leans green. This is one smooth accord. It's like velvet blanketing the skin and in a minute, the leather is already surging up and into the drivers seat.

The spices are wonderful in this fragrance. It may be the best blending of them that I've encountered in a masculine and NO transition of this fragrance is ever rude or boisterous. The overall blending is a marvel and after all these years, I am still in awe. None of the implemented notes usurps the other, with ( of course ) the exception of leather.

So, is the leather a nice rendition ? No, it's a fabulous leather aroma and to say it's nice doesn't do it justice. It's better than nice and equal to the best leather-dominant niche you'll come across. The magic here is in the pre-set volume of all the active notes hovering just below the supple leather.


The base unfolds very quietly. The galbanum from the top and moss in the base enable the green aura to continue through the life of the scent. They are more dominant than the oriental notes. In summary, Aigner No.1 is a truly underrated leather scent that showcases well executed spices, green notes, earthy tones and of course, the leather. The sillage is acceptable and longevity is about 4 hours on me before evolving into a skin scent.

Both of my thumbs are raised for this forgotten leather masculine from Etienne Aigner.

This has always been a masterpiece.
The opening is traditional initially, with citrus-bergamot being given a green touch herbal notes. The dryown with galbanum mixes flowery notes and a very nice jasmine with wood notes and a smooth patchouli. The base is remarkable in it's attempt to marry classic fougère oakmoss with amber, tonka and a very convincing soft suede leather note. It uses a broad variety of traditional components with a base whose depth and richness provide a very special experience. The quality of the components cannot be fated, the blending is very well done, and silage and projection are very good. I get about five hours if longevity. In combining a classic fresh opening with an unusually variegated amber-leather base this scent was ahead of it's time.

This an excellent, warm masculine fragrance!
It's from the 70's but still can easily be worn today.
It is a warm, soft, smooth and longlasting fragrance for cold fall/winter evening/nights! The drydown is a delicious mix of mainly patchouli, vanilla, oakmoss and amber which are made of mainly natural ingredients and therefor smells like niche quality!
It's discontinued but I am happy I could score a 50ml splash bottle of this which I decanted! Thumbs up! Rating: 8.5/10
