New formula review: 5 stars for one of the best floral for men out there. Not easy to wear due to it's animalic background. Go easy on the sprayer and you'll impress people with this!
Very very close to Encre Noire.
On my skin this have better longevity than Encre Noire due to his smokiness and leathery base. I am very impressed by this juice. I like vetiver fragrances a lot but, unfortunately most of them are light on my skin. This one do slightly longer and with a more sophisticated manner (better blend and well rounded) than Encre Noire (more harsh and piquant vetiver).
Sycomore is to Encre Noire what is Montale's Red Vetiver is to Terre d'Hermes, a knock out! Or should I say a technical knock out. Quality show itself!
4/5 (same score as Encre Noire but with better longevity) 4/5 for longevity.
Pretty distinctive, yes a bit synthetic. I don't like this one anymore... 1 star for his distinctive scent.
