This is my first foray into the house of Parfums de Marly, and I'm quite impressed. This is a niche version of a "barbershop" fragrance. One of the best I've smelled since Invasion Barbare, HdP 1725, etc. It has the "shaving cream" accord, supported by some ambery/musky basenotes. Lovers of Azzaro PH, Rive Gauche will be pleasantly surprised by this one. I highly recommend it as a "buy" with one caveat: if you can find it for around $130 shipped as I did. I wouldn't pay any more because the longevity and sillage are only average. Otherwise, this is an outstanding example of a "niche" barbershop fragrance done right. Thumbs up from me.
A fresh and bright woody scent with some herbal notes and slight sweetness in the background which is quite pleasant and masculine but it's not as strong as people keep talking about and also it's not a unique or different scent at all!
Both projection and longevity is average on my skin.
Green spicy lime opening with a pungent laurel leaf note and a vanillin hint on a dusty, round, musky evernyl base. After a while it gets a bit more mellow and ambery, still with a persistent green herbs tone, basically entering a cheap unoffensive fougère territory – the "after shaving cheapos" world. Overall: dull.
