Reviews of George

This goes on very “nag champa/head shop”, which had me worried. I took a leap trusting this would be an office scent, but it is not. I like it…kind of boozy incense, amber, spicy (tobacco?), semi-sweet (coffee?) and somewhat heavy, but it does lay large and therefore suited for active winter night out? I don’t get much florals, even in the beginning, which came across more as sweet Neroli to me. I see George as a contradiction…looks and constructed as something stately and classy, but in the end it’s youthful and proud…and that’s not a bad thing. Nice, but I will pass. Thumb neutral.

George opens with a neroli/bergamot combo that immediately brings to mind of an amped-up Eau De Cologne type of accord. Since the very early stages of the opening though, you realize there's something special about George, in fact, the initial effect dissipates within seconds to leave space to a darker and fascinating tobacco / resins accord that represents the real nature of this composition. Warm and enveloping with a certain *je ne sais quoi* provided by slightly skanky facets. It feels honeyed and sort of musky while white floral patterns provide interesting refinements.

Probably not groundbreaking but so well done and smartly twisted to absolutely deserve attention. A real pleasure to wear.

Nice job.

Finally a fragrance from Jardins d'Ecrivains which smells decently made, compelling and mature. The opening of George is tasty and dense, a pollen-humid floral concoction, balanced with a vanillin-sweet base, a slight anisic breeze and a light woody base, which also comprises something mossy and balmy. As minutes pass it emerges a beautiful, soft tobacco note with nuances of honey and patchouli, which beautifully blends with the dusty and silky floral side. Rich and pleasant, initially it smells a bit artificial here and there (the usual kind of "home cleaner" feel), but it becomes remarkably better as minutes pass, reaching its "beauty" peak after one hour or so. Shortly, a nice, elegant, mellow tobacco-floral-woody scent, quite unusual too, more feminine (or dandier) than most of tobacco scents. Exotic but elegantly restrained. Nice!
