    Shogun is another one of Delon's fresh yet, mysteriously unsual creations which do not really follow any trend but set their own style. This style makes the enitre line of AD fragrances (with probably the exception of Pharos and AD Plus) unique and recogniseable. Shogun takes a special turn on freshness with a nice manly touch. It comes across energizing and pleasantly sharp (I like sharp) and it stays that way. Not much development happening but the whole start up experience stays with you for a long time. When I first tried this, I was worrying regarding longlivety but with a few spritzes more (5-6 in total) you are set for the day and can even feel the scent the next morning on your shirt without knocking out anyone around you. Price / quality is very very competitive and the uniqueness of this fragrance makes it a sophisticated choice for an energy loaded signature scent. Shogun is a worthy part of the amazing AD Classic, Iquitos and Samourai family. Very well done again. Due to its availability, this will remain an under the radar fragrance and therefore perfect for individuals who dont want to stand in the same line as many others. Merci beaucoup Alain!

    Acqua di Gio -> Mugler Cologne. That's what the evolution reminds me of. Opening is a fresh, sweet citrus. A little more lively than good ol' AdG. The drydown, which I'm enjoying even as I type this, is a slightly steam clean style vetiver and sandalwood like Mugler Cologne. Actually, it's more like Paul Smith Story minus a bitter accord. Also, a little goes a long way with this. I overapplied this and sneezed all day, but just a few sprays and no sneezing!

    Shogun, I've decided, must be Japanese that's been translated into the French and come out meaning "boring as hell."

    This one masquerades as a member of the Oriental fragrance family and yet should be proud to stand alongside the best of the most mediocre in that teeming horde of "fresh, aquatic" men's frags out there.

    Save your money for a GOOD Delon, such as Delon's Original (AD) and/or Iquitos -- leave this one for your building super or your teenage nephew.

    Gorgeous sweet citrus and floral oriental that's more upbeat than the original Samourai but weightier than Samourai 47.
    Delon has produced some marvellous fragrances and this is certainly one of them.Lovely,lovely,lovely!

    A refreshing full-bodied sweet aquatic / citrus / wood, Shôgun opens with a sharp, clean citrus accord that has a metallic tinge to it. It is energetic, captivating, and quite strong. The heart notes, too, have a strong presence — basil and vetiver. The base is substantial — a masculine wood / leather accord that stays fresh and doesn’t turn dark or heavy. Shôgun is a very refreshing scent that works well for the evening; I find it a little too strong for the office, and, perhaps a little too Oriental. There’s nothing about this fragrance that makes it special. I get an acceptable longevity from it — 4-5 hours. Be careful not to over apply — its cleanliness can be tricky… remember that it is a true Oriental at heart, and it is capable of dynamic projection.
