At the intersection of many, eventuallly unique.
It reminds me a lot of nice memories: Jaguar for men, Lacoste Original, and due to the floral character, sometime of CK one.
well cooked indeed :-D
Very good this, one of Taylor's best. A classical style eau de cologne with florals, given legs by a musky/woody/light patch drydown. Everything here is well-proportioned. It reminds me of D R Harris' Mayfair, which is similar but louder and more clumsily constructed (chef's hand slipped when adding the musk). I imagine it might suit the 'beaks' more than the pupils. Incidentally, the shaving cream is top notch too.
What the Taylor’s website says about the fragrance : a beautiful masculine fragrance with dominant citrus lemon notes combined with fruity citrus notes of orange and mandarin. All this is blended with gentle floral notes that rest on a base of warm patchouli. Contains Lemon oil and Patchouli oil.
In my opinion, this is a good fragrance for a young gentleman and an older one also.
- Taylor is a true Jermyn street barber,
- The fragrance is really also sold at Eton College,
- The fragrance is really not expensive (18.95 £) but not a cheap one, made in England and with a gentlemanly bottle. These bottles are the same than certain from Parfumeurs et Maître Gantiers or Annick Goutal,
- There are many complementary products and that is important : soaps, shaving cream…,
- For an older gentleman, this is a very nice summer fragrance, very fresh and floral,
- I can wear it for the office and at the club, this not an intrusive fragrance.
You can go for it, for these reasons it is a good choice.
N.B : I also wear Penhaligon’s fragrances for the winter.
Strange - Odd - Unusual - Metallic -
I would put it in the Jicky categorie - you love it or hate it !!
Going in different directions between the freshness and the spices and a tad sweet.
I like fragrances that are odd or out of the mould.
Winter - evening - standing out.
Deserves a try -
I like it !!
Didn't do a thing for me. Actually, there's something sickening about the frag and the talc, too.
