Spencer Hart Palm Springs fragrance notes

Reviews of Spencer Hart Palm Springs

Great job at recreating a vintage feel in a modern fragrance, I get vivid suggestions of habit rouge (citrus and carnation) and Pour Monsieur for its classy wispy aura , in it's own originality tho it has a clever smokey vibe that under scores the whole concept, this gives it that room with famous men chatting about life in glamourous surroundings feel, smoking when smoking was cool, I can't help but think of that famous black and white picture of the rat pack shooting pool together. Yes I have been influenced by the name and concept but in this case it is spot on. Average to low performance which is a shame but I don't think it was ever intended to be a screamer or the loudest in the room, the occasional whiff around the shirt collar is absolutely fine.

I like Palm Springs : fines citrus notes with light touches of spicy and smoked wood. It's sophisticated with aldehydes who give a real vintage charm.

Notes: as given above.

Released in 2014 (not 2012) for the now defunct clothing company Spencer Hart, who listed as one of their celebrity part-owners one Robbie Williams. Is there a clothing company this guy can't ruin?! But I imagine that Floris now wish to get rid of their stock to minimise those associations, thus explaining the now better than half price sale on this fragrance as I write.

Anyway, the scent: for reference, think Ambre Sultan (just not nearly as good), Jaipur Homme, Sartorial, and the proprietary No. 89.

It opens with some bitter citrus and aromatics. The usual Floris characteristic is in play - light spraying allows easy discernment of the accords, whereas heavy spraying makes everything more confused and denser. The clove comes through heavily and tends to dominate.

This is a good scent overall, but not evocative of the Rat Pack to me. In my view, if you're going to list these notes, then many of them have to do rather more work than they're put to here. Below average performance. Probably no-one will mourn the passing of this one.

Smokey clove with a soft sweet amber hidden in the background. This is a great fragrance.

Absolutely love this. I believe it is a modern version of No.89 and it just works.
