I found a bottle of eau de carven in my late grandpa's cupboard dated around 50s.
Sienna reminds me of that... Its really amazing, not necessarily to be called old man's stuff.
Though I wonder whats " hint of fire "
Sienna is another viable option for fans of classic masculine structures. To paraphrase another firm's ads, "if you love Halston Z-14 (or Tuscany or Santos), you'll love Sienna." Sienna is of the kitchen-sink school, ladling in spices, leather, patchouli, perhaps some basil. For a substantial bottle the price is quite a bargain and anyone near a mall will probably be able to access it, although there's talk of the line being discontinued.

Crabtree&Evelyn Sienna is an example of what a real masterpiece in the artistic parfumery concretely means. Sienna, a masterwork of green, spicy, aromatic, woody, boise' subtleness with the traditional english landmark, ending up as a superb leathery-beeswax (i agree with the others) cologne of unbelievable class and refinement. If you like the powerful and bold new generation ambery-patchouli and oudh scents, well, forget it. Sienna is an archetype of discreet, velvety and straight-forward english traditional smell, a finally smooth and balanced aroma, the whiff of a very refined english man that smells at once softly spicy, hesperidic, green and delicately leathery-mossy, soapy and ambery. Lovely packaging.
Really like this one, will be going FB on it.
Slightly sweet and spicy leather fragrance which is a ridiculous steal at the price point. I smelled this first and let it dry down before going back to see how much it was.
It smells much MUCH more expensive than it actually costs and would suit anyone looking for a fairly powerful fragrance which can be worn in formal or smart casual situations very comfortably.
This is intially very nice, warm spice with a firm supporting structure of leather. Within about fifteen minutes, however, it starts to descend into a very animalic region. Another five, and I might as well have just rolled around in a stable yard. After a little more time it regains its balance, heading back to the intial combination of notes but with the positions reversed - now the leather is on top and the spice supporting.
I really enjoy the start and the end of this, but don't much appreciate the journey between.
