Yes, Dsquared He Wood as ideally combined with the classic Lancome Trophee (or in part Trussardi Action Uomo and MY Land), Basile Uomo and Canali for Men. Cale' Fragranze d'Autore Roboris is a Mark Buxton's extremely tart citric-woody composition with a really notable "gummy/glue-like" effect probably enhanced by a typical cactus green-sticky feel, a dry thirsty cedary presence, something vaguely mossy and finally a sheer violet/wisteria presence. The latter provides a typical "violet-like" floral-earthy vegetal (slightly bitter/geranium-like) effect. Really lemony, harshly herbal and woody fragrance. Gradually, along the way, jasmine emerges providing (in connection with tart lemon and woodsy resins) a more pungent and "melancholic" feel which finally seems connected with hints of soft leather and rubber. Frankly I don't detect the rhubarb's presence in its typical somewhat boozy-herbal twist. Despite for long a "pencil shaving-like" cedarwood seems somewhat dominant, finally an intenser note of sandalwood jumps up as connected with citrus and resins in to a more marked, refined and intense woodiness (in this phase vaguely conjuring the Paco Rabanne XS's dry down but with a more stressed woodiness). I detect a touch of metallic/calonic effect in the air. Roboris is not an "easy to wear" composition with its really harsh, sticky, woodsy resinous muscular nature. I find it really pungent, oily citric and finally leathery (in its typical violet/leather/citrus/calone centered accord a la Trussardi My Land). Extremely virile and rural creation for solitary men of Grand Canyon and the green valleys. " The sun is high enough to start the day".
