What an opening: bergamot, citrus and lavender combine with a superb artemisia, and are underlined by a great juniper impression that adds an extra unexpected twist; a slightly boozy note is also notable. The drydown is a classic floral triad of carnation, geranium and jasmine, again just delicious. The base continues in classical style with cedar, patchouli and leather, but the star here is a wonderfully rounded and herbal oak moss of top-notch quality turning this into a fougère base of the finest quality. The performance is a power-laden Formula-1 heaven: great silage, supreme projection, and an absolutely astounding longevity on my skin: I am getting seventeen hours! Wow, a grand classic but not unoriginal and certainly a masterpiece of Weil, and one of the great chypres.

A less adventurous Yatagan, and since Yatagan is avaiable and inexpensive, you can skip the ebay mishegoss.

I like this one a lot. To me it's very similar to Xeryus by Givenchy, but Kipling is woodier, dryer, less sweet. Elegant and subtle

Not bad at all as affordable vintage scents go - solid, warm, woodsy, spicy, and with a character of its own - but I'd be hard pressed to prefer this one to some of the other classics from the era. I certainly see the Quorum connection, although Kipling comes across as a bit more refined and less artificial. There's also a sour/bitter note in Kipling that I find slightly irritating. And where's the spice and adventure suggested by the name?

I used this one many years ago and I remember liking it. Since I havent tried it for a long time I am not sure of how it smelled - but I definitely know I liked it. It was a woody-oriental scent and I have a vague memory that it reminded me of Jazz for some odd reason. Please correct me if I am wrong.

This is a wonderful and hard to find cologne. It's a great woody, warm scent...Not too loud and not too soft...Just right. It's nothing like quorum (review below). And it's still listed on e bay every now and then. Try it...You'll like it.
