Reviews of L'Anarchiste

i get a minty/metallic post-industrial orange...freshly baked apple pie sprinkled with cinnamon...not gourmand in the least though...more of a semi-classic office friendly men's cologne type of profile...very heavy on the metallic effect...dries down to a musky woodish finish...not terrible , but pass on this one...

I still have half of bottle with original formula. Maybe the most metallic scent i had ever sniffed and tried on my skin.

Cinnamon, musk, mint,tobacco, mandarin and some spices = a very interesting perfume by Caron.

I jumped onboard this one when it first came out in 2000. Always a big fan of Caron, I was taken with the daring metallic spicy note in l’Anarchiste; the copper bottle sealed the deal. I was never really comfortable with this one, though. I finished the bottle and moved on and only recently decided to retry it, knowing that it had been slightly reformulated. The Caron site asserts that “only the mint top note has been softened by Richard Fraysse, the overall composition remains unchanged.” It still smells much the same to me and I am reminded of what a quality juice this is. The listed notes of Mint, Orange Blossom, Sandalwood from the Indies, Vetiver Bourbon, Accord of 7 musks and Gaiac Wood have never sounded right to me. While others talk of mentholated, metallic oranges, I get metallic apple pie, even though apples and cinnamon are not among the notes. There is a soapy, musky woody base to this, to be sure, but to me l’Anarchiste brings to mind an apple pie being cut into with a sharp steel Sabatier knife, scratching into the metal pie tin as it goes—teeth on edge, mouth watering. Might be just the thing to wear for the coming holiday season.

After reading other's reviews, I could not wait to try this.
If I didnt get the immediate burst of cinnamon and mint, I would swear that my sample was mislabeled. Because within 10 minutes of application, all I got was the smell of my Dad's Noxema shaving cream.
I was really looking forward to something outrageous, not minty, freshly scrubbed.
Meh.

Has it really been 16 years since L'Anarchiste first came to market? Wow, time does more on!"

This wins the award for most beautiful packaging. The original black box with the impressive copper bottle is truly special and it reeks of quality! I purchased a few as gifts
just because of the packaging!

The fragrance is really good too, and the unique blend of orange, menthol and vetiver set it apart from commonplace. I find L'Anarchiste very modern and somewhat futuristic due to the metallic note which is surprising yet pleasant to my senses.

I haven't tried the new Fraysse reformation and I'm not sure that I want to. Sometimes it's best to remember great things as they were and leave it at that.

Metallic orange...that's the sum of it. Blind bought this one based on the strength of other outings by Caron, but didn't take to it like I thought just by looking at the fragrance pyramid. Not awful, just somewhat confusing and synthetic.
