An absolute winner. not quite like anything else. extremely sophisticated, manages to be rich yet not overpowering, light but potent. everytime i wear it, i receive constant complements.
A green scent...by that I mean this smells like: cut grass, hay, green tea, etc. It changes, of course, over time, but that is the general scent description. I think Chaleur d'Animale pour Homme (2000) is similar.
To conjure this smell...think baby powder mixed with a kind of musky overtone. Not too similar to many others colognes, but check out Paradox by Jacomo (the blue version) if you like this.
If you like this kind of smell (almost a fruity, baby-powder type overtone with some masculine bits thrown in), but want something with a little harder "edge", test Zizanie (1932).
Take Insence (orignal) or Dolce & Gabanna (original)...tone down the floral notes a bit and then add a base undertone of with a "lotion" type smell. A "lotion" smell is the raw smell (no scents added) of something like a face or hand cream. A sort of waxy, sunscreeny, oily (pleasant) smell. Like somebody back from the beach after using lotions.
I like to give reviews that tell people what something smells like by relating to other colognes. This is very similar to Dolce & Gabanna for Men (1994).
I like to give reviews that tell people what something smells like by relating to other colognes. If you like this cologne, check out Insense by Givenchy (1993).
A green scent...by that I mean this smells like: cut grass, hay, green tea, etc. Of course it drys down and changes over time and is by no means bad, but that is the general scent direction. Similar in many ways to Mat; Male (2002).
This smells almost exactly like "273 for Men" by Fred Hayman. (Original, not the "blue" version.) It's cheaper too and probably easier to find.
FYI - this smells almost exactly like Antaeus by Chanel
