    The Rance Francois Charles's aromatic-greenish-musky-"splashing" opening is full of "olfactory conjurations" under my nose since this concoction (wittingly or un wittingly for its performer, I don't know) rides for sure several solid commercial olfactory "sexy" stereotypes of the "renowned market" (jumping from Gaultier Le Male to YSL Body Kouros and Cuba Paris Cuba Gold, passing across Acqua di Biella Ca' Luna and several Ted Lapidus, Lolita Lempika, Borsalino- Panama jumps on mind- or Escada, overall with "a tad" of the classic Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli). There is a freshly herbal, liquid-spicy and talky muskiness throughout and all around and this feel would be probably appealing for the contemporary young hurban "balmy-attracted" crowds, I guess. The accord is a synthetic (and by now classic) combination of musk (galaxolide), a fleeting lavender/basil/aromatic herbs "cooperation", talky amber, aquatic molecules, balmy notes, ginger/cardamom and floral notes (vegetal geranium first of all). I don't detect effectively a classic twist of synthetic iris powder but more generally a dusty talkiness really dry and clean. The dry down becomes more and more restrained, talky, piquant and virile (reducing the soapiness) and this phase is the most satisfactory in accordance with my taste. I detect in this stage a really pleasant tonka/tobacco powdery accord not so distant from the ones we have previously enjoyed in Versace The Dreamer or Remy Latour Cigar or (to a certain extent) Farmacia SS Annunziata Talc Gourmand. A well made scent for the lovers of this synthetic powdery sensual genre.

    François Charles by Rancé (don't get fooled by all these French names, they're based in the South-West suburbs of Milan) opens with a fairly cloying accord of musky-woody notes, mostly comprising a bold dose of cardamom and tonka, slight balmy notes (pine?), dark and dry flowers (carnation), a rooty-buttery carrot-like note, a light menthol note provided – I guess – by geranium and basil. Not stinky, even with some nice nuances and quite a rich texture for this type of scent (by type I mean class of quality): the accord of iris is basically non-existent, it's rather a earthy-rooty accord of cardamom, tonka, carrot and violet aromachemicals which basically "create" a sort of orris presence. Mossy-green hints all around. A general, invisible vibe of cheapness, but that's my impression. Basically a barely decent and fairly pretentious plain scent which may work for a dinner among not-that-trained noses.

    Disappointed. The product hype suggested a "walk in the forest" and the notes show herbs and woods. But this turns out to be a "fresh" - spice - musk sort of scent.
    The herbal notes are much too brief to count for anything. The spices are done in a sweet style and are prominent. The scent has a synthetic tang.

    This is basically an expensive niche version of Le Male. I lost my sample of this one, and only sprayed it once or twice several years ago. I can't give a full fledged review, but I can say it smelled like a more refined Le Male.. one of the better copies though. Though don't expect anything too natural, the notes still smelled quite synthetic.
