Serge Nancel was a French fashion design house. It is now defunct. The box of this perfume has the signature logo of the house, a sea-horse. And the bottle is in the shape of a tailor's mannequin.
The scent is an odd duck. Powerful and musky, yet with a peach note. Styled like an 80's scent with a heavy foundation but not very macho. Fairly sweet and heavy. Bit leathery due to the labdanum. The peach note is distinctive and persistent. Combines with a metallic, balsamic note. Don't get ANY wood here. There is zero resemblance to "Hinoki," if by that CdG's Hinoki was meant by another reviewer.
A very sharp cedarwood. Dries down to a undertone of cedarwoods. It's like a little brother to Hinoki or Lacroix's Tumulte.
This was a very operpowering scent, for me. All of the individual ingredients, I like. But together, this is a very musky, heavy unpleasant scent. I'd skip this one. Joshaugustt
