Reviews of Maestro

This is a superb 90s fragrance in the line of direct descendency from Halston Z-14 (70s) and Givenchy's Xeryus (80s). A bit more crisp and green than these two, it stands the test of time despite lacking a little in originality. Another scent in the same vein from the same era is Valentino's Vendetta per Uomo, which is more cinnamic and musky. All in all, I wish I had more than my small bottle as I would wear it more. It's a better everyday scent than those other three.

Top: lime, bergamot, lavender, pine
Mid: Sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, clove
Base: Oakmoss
Maestro by Simon Chang is a masculine, woody-grassy scent. Chang is a Montreal fashion designer who briefly got into scents in the late 1980’s, offering Maestro (male) and Kimono (female). Vetiver and patchouli are Maestro’s dominant elements. Pine is listed but I could not detect any. There is a good, typically brief sparkling citrus-lime opening. Very quickly the scent settles into a fresh woody accord. I find Maestro’s vetiver and patchouli to be substantial but not heavy. The oakmoss is restrained but effectively adds other grassy notes. Maestro retains its tangy, not-sweet character over the course of its development. I like some vetiver fragrances and this one is well made. The strong notes are controlled, and the scent reminds me of walking in a sunny grass field. I like it! This is an inexpensive fragrance (now discontinued) but it presents well and exceeded my expectations. The package I purchased also has a shower gel which is of very good quality.
