    Reductio

    If Halston Z-14 was Little Richard: crude, brash and original, then Man is Pat Boone.

    Pros: Nice bottle.
    Cons: Weak, pale shadow of Z-14

    A little woody, a little sweet and a little peppery to my untrained nose. very pleasant, easy to wear, modest sillage and longevity. I am not a whiz with notes, but this one does not smell synthetic to me. I doubt I'll buy a full bottle only because there are so many others out there I like better, but I am really enjoying the sample.

    Carlos Benaim is the perfumer of the reorchestration and reinterpretation of the splendid powerful Z-14.Aromatic-spicy fragrance- not less not more.
    The incomparable, unique and fascinating Roy Halston was a shimmering,glitzy very creative fashiondesigner in the 70ties.Z-14 (get the original scent!!!!)was a manīs scent: aromatic-leather-spicy powerful and loud-comparable to devin by aramis, yatagan by caron , drakkar noir, azarro etc.These were the times when men smelled like men and not like women( all these aquatic-marine light metrosexual undefinable eaux de toilette)Halston, this really great designer launches 1974 this powerhouse scent Z-14: unique with a recall value- youīd never forget this scent!A crude, dark,vibrant scent!What a bombshell.
    So what has happened?!They have tortured and killed this jewel of a manīs scent and have left a thin,skeleton of a fragrance- this is a disappointment at full length! not less not more-it is unbelievable that they canīt leave their fingers away from the really great original scents of the past!?Why do they have to reninterpretate these scents?What happened to vent vert , monsieur balmain, jolie madame etc.etc. What cruelty- ignorants have destroyed these refined, sublime art works of gods of perfume history- okay if there has to be a reinterpretation then please stick as much as possible to the original f.e. aurelien guichard with baghari for piguet(great work) but if you are all thumbs keep away from it and do not monkey business!!!!!!!!!!! If you like powerhouse fragrances get the original Z-14 - this is really great stuff and Halston will give you a smile!!!!!!!!!!And if you like smoky, dark and really manīs scents-try Knize ten- what a composition!!!!!

    I think it's very good...nothing exceptional or groundbreaking, but not everything can be. It's just good. It gets my respect for the same reason Rive Gauche does...not many scents of this type and quality are released these days - traditional, with a sleek, modern twist.

    Man is a peppery green/woody scent that, to me, falls somewhere between cyphre and fougere...probably closer to the cyphre side. I detect a distinct reference to citrus/green cyphres of the past, such as Eau Sauvage and even Aramis Devin, with their very traditional and clean mossy/spicy bases. Man keeps with that lineage, but hails from the land of bright, somewhat fizzy, modern perfumery. This would make an excellent work or formal fragrance.

    I really like the spicy opening to this and was going to purchase, but decided to walk around for a bit with the tester. Lucky I did as it turned into a boring generic beast. I imagine all branches of Wetherspoons reeking of this on Friday nights. Avoid.


    PS. Burberry have launched a new fragrance for men called 'Burberry Sport' (it had to come). I would now like to put on record that it is the most vile atrocious fragrance I have ever smelled. For non-perfume lovers who feel that something is better than nothing.

    Warm well rounded fragrance, similar to Clive Christian "X", but with sharper top notes and a peppery mid range.
