Reviews of VIP for Men

Old school and a huge improvement on the original Giorgio Beverly Hills. No idea why this was discontinued, but it is a splendid and memorable scent.
31st December, 2019
A dark patchouli and honey combo with almost enough orris and tonka to make it smell like someone spiked your bottle of Giorgio For Men with a dash of old Royal Copenhagen. There is a delectable hint of licorice buried in the mix as well. I prefer this iteration to the original. Too bad it is practically non-existent now. One drop from a mini smells the equivalent of a full spray of most other designers out there.

Here's what this scent evokes for me: A dark summer night in the 1980's, Cadillac El Dorado parked outside. The owner: A man sporting a polyester zoot suit with huge collars, chest exposed, walking into a seethy discotheque playing New Wave music, the smell of Aqua Net and booze wafting in the air.

Well...Giorgio Beverly Hills VIP fits right into that mystique, hand in glove. Loud, proud, and reeking of excess and gaudiness, like the era it's from.

Colognes like Santos de Cartier, Quorum by Puig, Anthracite by Jacomo, Halston 1-12, et. al. really give a good capsule summary of VIP: Aromatic fougere, refined in an 80's way, loaded with patchouli and spice and everything kinda nice.

Would I wear it now? Nope. But on its own, I don't dislike it. It's better crafted that the original Giorgio Beverly Hills, IMO, which is a bit more plain-Jane compared to the more well-rounded nature of VIP. For nostalgics, collectors, and those who want to really go all out and experiment.

Stardate 20160927:

It is a lot like Jaguar vintage. The one made in Switzerland. But better.
A powerful masculine of the era when cigarette smoke had to be pierced.
But unlike Jaguar this one has a sweet note making it much more wearable.


Recommended.

At the current prices I would get Jaguar instead.

Yesterday I finally opened my new-in-box 120ml backup bottle of VIP. If you think that this is an even louder version of the already air-raid-siren decibel level original, you would be mistaken. While there is no denying that VIP’s size and power places it in the dreadnought class of male perfumery, its movement is surging with no jerky aggressive gestures and no shouting. It has the impression of soft density from the lush amber-suede backdrop and it is simply deeper, more balanced with less patchouli, and actually projects less than the original. I frankly do not understand the prior comments about the lack of note separation because, to me, the pièce de résistance of VIP is the extraordinary carnation note. (I will not pretend to know what comprises this accord --carnation/aldehydes/cinnamon? -- but I wish some other perfumer would recreate it and make it a focal point of a new perfume because there is nothing else like it and there is a great paucity of masculine carnation fragrances generally.) That spicy (but un-cloved) carnation ultimately fades to a deep rose, meshing nicely with the transition to the plush amber-suede-tonka-moss base. VIP is an iron fist in a velvet glove.

I prefer the original Giorgio for Men to the VIP flanker, but this is also a nice patchouli.

Check out vintage Quorum by Puig (short ingredients list) for a nice alternative to this.
