Reviews of Rebel at Heart

Thomas Sabo Rebel at Heart starts inebriating with a quite fizzy-spicy-hesperidic-aromatic blast of dry woods (cedary, rooty/earthy, peppery), pungent spices, orange/neroli and liquid incense waving by soon in the middle between a typical Comme des Garcon's woody-dry-spicy accord (Wonderwood jumps vaguely on mind) and vegetal (earthy-citric-aromatic) scents a la Terre d'Hermes, Atelier Cologne Trefle Pur, the "appalling" new Paco Rabanne Invictus (especially considering the central Rebel at Heart's stage), Molton Brown Apuldre, I Profumi di Firenze Legno Amaro and Byredo Mr Marvellous. Opening is frankly misleading, sparkling and illusory to me since I can catch a quite realistic, inebriating and visceral accord of vetiver, bitter citrus peels, aromatic herbs, orange/mandarine, wet/sharp woods and inebriating spices teleporting the mind in the middle of a souther dark-green citrus grove. In a short while resins emerge (incense-amber) as connected with a disturbing strong synthetic-gassy woodiness and hints of soothing patterns (possibly synth ambergris and tonka beans). Starting by this point (and ahead for a bit) I get losing each enthusiasm and the running evolution seems on the point to smell boring and mainstream till the end. Is not properly in that way, fortunately. Anyway I tend more and more to dislike the extremely woody-spicy accords indeed, especially if those creations tend to disgorge in to something finally soapy-resinous and gassy-cedary, exactly what it seems to be caught at this point of the Rebel at Heart's short evolution (the same disappointing phenomenon that I get in I Profumi di Firenze Legno Amaro). Furthermore the central stage, before the aroma starts fortunately to restrain its substance, smells too markedly orangy-woody-resinous for my full pleasure. Anyway I catch in the central stage a cedary amber which is something all at once soothing and chemical (kind of gassy) in a quite orangy way. Luckily the stout woodiness recedes and a final sharper and more refined-subtle (vaguely floral and surely woody-amberish) spark gets waving classically in the air (spicy, warm, earthy, virile, "synth ambergris-driven" and almost powerhouse in style). This final stage is quite better and frankly (almost) satisfactory. A more than decent concoction which is anyway nothing new or fully interesting for my olfactive orientations.

Thomas Sabo's Rebel At Heart is one of the reasons why we should never judge a book by its cover. With such a dreadful flacon that immediately brings to mind of a lacquered version of the Death Star, I can't say I was very motivated to give this a change but, eventually, I'm really glad I did.

A well done and very reasonably priced woody oriental with spicy / incensey refinements and sweetish undertones. Incredibly pleasant to wear, versatile, completely competent and, most of all, it skips the typical department store vibe of these kind of fragrances.

A little hidden gem which is vastly superior to the majority of similarly themed niche offerings of the last five years or so.

Folks, there is nothing rebellious here.
Soft spices with a hint of oudh. Comfortable, cozy, non-threatening.
Bit of wood, slightly sweet dry-down.
Very close resemblance to Hugh Parsons Oxford Street. The two are interchangeable.
