Panama 1924 fragrance notes

Reviews of Panama 1924

A quite unique fragrance that I find captivating. A blend of tobacco, citrus and vanilla underpinned by soft musk. It is a subtle seamless masterpiece with decent sillage. Bravo, Boellis!
16th October, 2019
Well, I’m impressed. Not that anyone should care, but I just realised that Boellis is perhaps my favourite Italian niche house. First because – pardon the pun - it’s out of Italian niche: out of tradeshows, promotional blog whoring, demented marketing ploys, absurd pricing range. Second because their products are truly good, and each of them really matches my tastes. I’m already a big fan of Panama 1924 Daytona, which quite grew on me over time, but I was still missing the classic Panama 1924; now that I tried it, I can’t say nothing but good things about this as well. A truly rich, solid and compelling tobacco-lavender “barbershop” scent with a veritable material feel of warm, vanillic ambery-powdery dustiness, perfectly supported by a really natural accord of something similar to a touch of anisic herbs, hay (both may be just nuances of lavender, though) and a gentle mossy-patchouli shade on the very base, briefly refreshed by an initial burst of refined, lukewarm and tea-like bergamot notes.

That’s it; mostly a tobacco-powdery scent, shortly, with a remarkably refined feel of dusty natural warmth. Basically something blending Odori Tabacco, several powdery scents for men (from Le Male to Jaipur Homme), anisic-lavender fougères from Azzaro pour Homme on, and a plain natural shaving soap bar. Panama 1924 does brilliantly evoke the shabby, yet refined atmosphere of a typical Italian old-school barber shop – which in the end, is Boellis’ (true and actual) heritage. The smell of soaps, powder, talc, antique woods, linen jackets with dusky tobacco in their inner pockets, all smoothened by a whiff of sweet notes (thus evoking the other pillar of the Italian, and specifically Neapolitan culture – food). All with the perfect sillage and a long, pleasant, non-artificial persistence.

I find this scent as much simple as amazing, I think it’s really well blended, with quality ingredients, and whoever composed this had very clear in mind what to take inspiration from, and for what type of audience. Nothing overly creative, nothing “luxury”, just nonchalantly classy and extremely enjoyable. A cozy little essay of “sprezzatura” in a bottle worth every penny of its price. Recommended.

What an ethereal light masculine fragrance that smells of the finest soap, minty clean herbs and a heavenly leafy leather powder base. The soapy character of this scent leads me to believe it has a touch of lavender at the opening, maybe a bit of vetiver in the base wrapped around the tobacco flower middle. There is a dry powdery aroma that reminds me of the barbershop dusting that you get after an old fashioned trim at the corner barbershop. This powdery aroma is light, floral, minty and aromatic while being more than uplifting. It is almost mystical in its uplifting quality - a heavenly dust for sure. Panama 1924 has all of the subtle dustiness of a Guerlain Tonka Imperiale while retaining a natural herbal character.

If applied heavily this fragrance gets a little too sweet and annoying, but if lightly applied it is a comfortable barbershop style fragrance with plenty of subtlety and appeal. If rating the fragrance I would probably only give it 2.5 stars out of 5 possible, but for the right time and place it surely deserves a higher rating and a thumbs up.

Boellis 1924 is a masculine scent which, while some may say is "barbershoppy".Perhaps "barbershoppy" is really a good thing as it defines masculinity as compared to the stampede of feminine "neo male" scents flooding the market in recent years.

barbershoppy and so thin in sillage ..just like going nowhere!

Interesting fragrance in my opinion, laundry/toilette type in genre (as advertised well surrounded by toiletries and identically smelling foams), barely soapy, classically barber-shop, with hints of smoky/aromatic spices, a plain mild leathery/musky (opaque) side and a woodsy/vetiver-based comforting dry down. A conservative one for sure but with musky-laundry more contemporary mild traits, something discreetly fresh, dry tobacco flavoured and traditional. Boellis Panama 1924 millesime is classic in inception and timeless in phylosophy, a fresh/aromatic and restrained aroma with hints of laundry exoticism mostly provided by tobacco flower and a leathery vaguely retro other-era (velvety) vibe. Sillage and duration are normal on my skin, the juice itself conjures me more than vaguely several Caleche Hermes's nuances with some differences (leaning it on a more masculine, commanding, soapy but virile/opaque side). I detect hints of ambergris in the background for sure. A good release imo, yes, deserving by now the classic status.
P.S: the main accord of laundry tobacco, lavender and fresh musk gives to this juice a sort of JpG Le Male's aura but with a more classic, hesperidic, spicy and freshly natural substance (like combining a classic Aramis Havana with a laudry musky Le Male).
