Reviews of Samurai

La Via del Profumo Samurai (with the beautifully green colour of its natural juice) is a gentlemanly serious earthy-rooty-incensey slightly aromatic take over the vetiver theme. The main "raw material" is magistrally "settled" on a mossy-woody classic chypre basement. The note of vetiver is simply beautiful, quite natural, "Bourbon" in perception, well calibrated and finally subtle. A fragrance extremely stiff and forbidding with a refined lavender/aromatic patterns presence (lavender, clary sage?), an heady agrestic (but finally not too much) vetiver/patchouli accord, several dry spices, probably a minimal touch of dry frankincense on the side of dry sandalwood and soft final oakmoss. I detect a vague classic/exotic Etro's "cultured" approach with more than vague conjurations about the great Etro Vetiver's untamed brilliancy. Frankly I'm not able to detect veritable floral patterns or hesperides (may be a little bergamot is included in the recipe) while probably hints of soft resins (cypress??) and a touch of dry tobacco are well combined in the mossy blend. The note of lavender provides a sort of (tea-like) fresh aromatic ostensibly floral type of brightness (with a vague Chypre Mousse Oriza L. Legrand's deja vu) while effectively the resins-vetiver accord imprints an ostensibly rubbery light fleeting undertone. An absolutely appreciable work of balance and a measured, almost restrained, somewhat ascetic olfactory sleight of hand. Bravo.

Good vetiver frag

In his website there is detailed explanation about this creation which is not one of the most commented ones but that is beautiful one. A fragrance created for the italian senators, it's an aroma that favors a mixture which is classical and tipically accepted by the masculine public: i see it as mainly made of vetiver, lavender and oakmoss. If the notes are very well known in a simple and straightfoward formulation, the quality speaks by itself here and the careful balance of them makes it beautiful aroma of a noble, confortable and well-doused aura. On my skin or to my nose, the center of attentions here is the vetiver, which is not so earthy by itself and also doesn't contain the rubbery aspect that you eventually find on some vetiver essential oils. It's a vetiver that favors more the leafy, grassy, herbal impression and that gains a shape of a slightly sweet, creamy and floral note, which i see as probably an effect of lavender. The oakmoss on this one is the most difficult for me to be noticeable and it's on my skin a merely earthy touch in the composition. Like Green Tea, i see it as a sophisticated aroma, easy to wear and that would work very well as fagrance to use at work or on a daily basis.
