Burning Barbershop fragrance notes

Reviews of Burning Barbershop

The effect of this one is stunning. A stereotypical fresh barbershop clean masculine rendered under an amber tint; lavender, vanilla, spearmint, and limeall in equal measurebehind smoked glass. Not smoke, per se (or at least not in how I think of it more masterfully rendered, in such compositions as La Curie's Incendo, or even DS & Durga's own Mississippi Medicine), but some deeper concentration that brings all those classics to be more themselves, as if roasted. It's quite rich, lasts forever, and projects itself widely. In other words, it's quite the performer should you find it to suit you.

But... it just doesn't suit me, even after trying it a few times over the past few years. Maybe it's too close to some real memories of talcum powder, bad haircuts, and feigned masculinity. But for fans of those classic manly scents looking for something a little grittier, a little more assured, this could be it. (7/10)

I wouldn't mind a scented candle that smells like this to give a room a fantastic smokey ambiance, but wearing this as a fragrance would be a challenge.

Initial thoughts: It's a couple different kinds of smoke overlaid over some powdery soapy scents. Hard to differentiate the sweeter notes behind the smoke at first. Almost like a sweet smokey tobacco scent.

Curious to see how this develops in a few hours..

The fiery opening blast caused a reflex reaction to grab my phone to dial the emergency number for the fire brigade: A very realistic note of burnt rubber mixed with the impression of barbecue smokiness. The first thirty minutes are very intensely smoky, but in the drydown this burnt component mellows gradually into a more restrained smokiness, mixed with glimpses of minty moments shining through the smoky haze.

Once mellowed, darker floral impressions with an earthy lavender are combined with a dark vanilla that is skillfully and respectfully interwoven with the other notes and never in the foreground nor intrusive or heavy. This unusually discrete use of vanilla has struck me as a special skill of this house on previous occasions when sampling their creations.

I get moderate sillage, excellent longevity and nine hours of longevity on my skin.

This smoke blast will wake you up on a winter morning, but when you arrive at work the metamorphosis into a wearable scent is complete. Well done, albeit a bit linear in the drydown and base. 3.25/5

Burning Barbershop is a good follow up to Bowmakers, as the woody and leathery aspects are still there, but the spicy/herby notes are more dominant. Also pervasive is a smokiness that I can't really attribute to any particular note. Very acerbic opening with a more mellow, agreeable dry down. The vanilla is very subtle, even in the dry down, as the fragrance as a whole remains pretty bold throughout its lifespan.

It has strong projection and longevity, and is more of a cold weather option, for sure, but seems like it dresses up well at night as in the day. Much like Bowmakers, this is an option I might reach for again based on curiosity alone.

It is what it says on the label! This one has the smell of maple burning in a fireplace, layered onto a soapy traditional barbershop fragrance. Nice coniferous notes and vanilla too. It is complex, interesting and enjoyable. I like it very much!

Aptly named fragrance from D.S.& Durga. Opening is pure burnt candy and wood, IMO. It's pretty heavy on the burnt notes and I almost washed it off before giving it a chance to calm down. The smoke scent carries on, but it's thankfully more subtle and even has a sweet under note to it with hints of mint, lavender and vanilla carried in the background. It's stays wearable for about 2 hours and then fades rapidly to nothing in the final hour.

The smoke is something you have to like and I didn't find it that compelling. Frankly, too unusual for me. I like D.S. & Durga, but Burning Barbershop isn't to my tastes.
