Reviews of Knize Ten

THE standard in derivative petrol-chem leathers. Gomma, Cuir Mauresque, Tobac Blond, Cabochard all overlap in ways however there's nothing quite like K10. I've smelled it but once on someone else... a cop. Befitting. Respect.

Based on its history and all the good reviews, I really wanted to try Knize Ten.

The opening is pretty harsh for me. A whole lot of Orris and Cinnamon. These coupled with a healthy punch of white floral powder were a bit overwhelming. Think of it as a powdery Lonesome Rider. I didn't get any of the citrus listed in the notes. The drydown settled into a Roja Creation E Homme type of spicy and smoky ashtray leather, which is pleasant, but didn't completely sell me.

That being said, I still found it interesting and a whole lot less $$$ than Roja, so there's that.

I have been searching for a great leather dominated fragrance which is not an oud nor an orris bomb and is not powdery nor overberried. Unfortunately, this isn't it. Current contender...Papillon's Anubis.

For some reason was expecting more. Beginning is oily and petrol. Dry down is powdery and ...?
Longevity good. Projection poor.

It is time to accept the truth. Patou Pour Homme is not the greatest perfume in the world, neither is Shalimar, nor Vintage Tabarome.

This title only belongs to vintage Knize Ten. It is more a way of life instead of just being a perfume.

This is a lot at once. Very perfumey. I definately get some carnation and oakmoss and other green notes and citrus, but it's all mushed up together.

This is a blending style I'm just not a fan of.

I'm in the minority on this.. I rarely review fragrances but I adore Knize ten. I'm in the minority not because I adore the scent, but because I prefer the new formulation over the vintage Knize ten from years ago. The scent is misleading, like a good scotch... it's an acquired,taste but it's completely unobjectionable. It reminds me of vintage tabarome from creed in austerity terms, but is far superior because it has hints of florals and even rubbery leathers. It also reminds me of guerlain vetiver but is more leathery and floral. It's truly a masterpiece and is my signature scent. I wear various scents from Santa Maria novella, creed, mdci, Lorenzo villoresi, amouge, guerlain, le artisan, and many others. Knize ten, is superior to them all for me. I wea this day, evenings, to work, at home, while sitting in coffee shops... it never fails to impress me on ANY occasion. I've received compliments on it,from young and old women, no kidding. I like,to,wear,different things but I always "come back" to,Knize,ten.. I'm typing from iPad , so,please pardon the punctuation errors. Love Knize ten. The "new formula" is more balanced than the vintage Knize ten. I plan to try the golden edition from Knize , but I adore, as stated, this fragrance. It's certainly bottleworthy and were it 2x the price and from creed, people would flock to,this scent. It's simply amazing, leather, floral, smoke, burning leaves, masculine, skin, petrol, but above all refined, daring, safe, daring. Lots going on here! But in a great way.
