The Fragrance Journals : 1976 fragrance notes

Reviews of The Fragrance Journals : 1976

Designated a woody oriental, and this pretty much reflects the scent. Opens not entirely convincingly, with a short-lived but over-bearing pepper note, but it soon moves into territory I find redolent of L'Instant de Guerlain - certainly the jasmine and patchouli notes - but with the cocoa replaced with more woods, amber and musk. The result is therefore well-established but somehow moves the scent into more original territory than LIDG, which despite its excellence is perhaps feeling its age. It also makes for a dryer and more traditionally masculine tone, without the sweetness, and so is a very good option if you like the published notes but want them re-arranged to a slightly different tune. I would happily wear this throughout the colder months.

1976 is a very nice citrus with vestiges of juniper and a slight woodiness. I did also pick up some lavender in the mid, which was nice. I quite enjoyed my day with this fragrance and would love to have a bottle in my collection. As already mentioned, I'd like to find it at a discount, but I do feel that it's fresh, enjoyable, and bottle worthy.

Floris 1976 is a pleasant citrus/floral blend that neither offends nor dazzles, a nice light wear that doesn't perform anywhere in the vicinity as good as Honey Oud, for one.

I get mainly a mix of bergamot, lemon, black pepper, jasmine, and lavender. I really don't get any patchouli or vetiver at all--there's not much earthiness underneath the lighter opening.

Performance is surprisingly fleeting after trying Honey Oud, which is strong, but Honey Oud and Leather Oud seem to be the exception not the rule on both price and performance.

Definitely an agreeable unisex light scent best suited for warm weather wearing but also definitely not one I'd buy at the full retail price of $190 for 100ml (cheaper than Honey Oud at $235, though). Perhaps if this becomes cheaper in a few years on the secondary market, I'll revisit it, as many Floris fragrances are under $100 on FragranceX, at least.
