Reviews of Exception

This one is superb. Such a beautiful, strongly masculine Fougère Oriental scent. No powerhouse, no 80s stereotype either. Black Pepper galore. Massive sandalwood and bitter moss smell, nice sweet benzoin. Also has an Azzaro pour Homme vibe. Manly, sensual, great performance.

I had once received a tester of this scent from a friend who is a crazy for scents just like me. A very nice warm typical end of 80's fragrance: spicey, musky, vanilla. Opening is not that nice; first you get the idea that it would be very heavy and stinky, but a little later it settles down and becomes very nice. I don't know what it is but I smell like something like black pepper. I don't know if some of the notes smell like black pepper. After the tester I have searched for it in a lot of shops, but unfortunately it was not possible to get it. Pity!
