Negative Reviews of Quorum by Antonio Puig

Total Reviews: 15
My batch was manufactured April 1, 2017... batch code 70911. It smells okay but it only lasts 2 hours maximum. I can't see using this for anything but room freshener. I am assuming that this batch has been watered down to virtually nothing. I missed the older versions of this frag. Sad.

Just like modern scents today, most of the popular 80's powerhouses all smell similar. Oak moss, tobacco and leather I get but the main note is that industrial bathroom soap smell found in Kouros, Lapidus pH, etc.

I get good projection and longevity. Compared to the other powerhouses, it’s not as strong on my skin.

In my fragrance journey for something awesome from the powerhouse era I found Quorum.
Like most cologne, the initial opening is nice. The dry down though...not good.
It's similar to smelling like a spice rack. Thyme and basil, stuff like that. I don't know why someone would want to smell like this.
The color of the bottle, brown and a sickly green should have given me a clue as to what it smelled like.
It's not AWFUL. IT doesn't make your eyes water, or give you a headache. It's not a punch in the face like Kouros or Obsession. It's a lot lighter than those. It smells so-so when sniffing the sprayer or just that initial first spray. But the herbs and spices smell, mixed with a BO/sweat vibe is just weird.

I received a sample of the frag and wanted to do a review on it. To me this is the pinnacle of a old man scent. If you thought "what would men smell like in the 80's and 90's?"- this would be it. It is not my favorite but I do see where men over 35 would be ok to wear it.

Since it has a very warm, woody, leathery feel-I would recommend wearing it in the Fall when it is cooler.

I would not recommend wearing it for a night out (date or clubbing) since to me it smells like "older man". If that is what your going for- then this the frag for you.

Overall Rating: 4/10
Longevity: 8/10
Sillage: 7/10

Any legal body must have enough members present before it can conduct its business; this is what's known as a quorum.

The bottle I have is so underpowered that a dozen sprays at the start of a board meeting would barely last till the second item on the agenda.

There were evidently so few odorants present on the 10th of January 2012 when the constituents of this juice were assembled it could not have been quorate.

I want to like the old-school sharp leathery colognes, and I'm sure I'll find others that I do. But this one is so aggressive, and almost acridly astringent that I felt embarrassed wearing it. I got rid of it, which wasn't such a big deal since it was $6 for 1 oz. If this were more expensive for the same product, I'd give it a thumbs down simply because it would be way too crass for the money.

It's like the waiter in the nightclub in Who Framed Roger Rabbit: a gorilla in a tuxedo. He's really well-groomed for a gorilla, but you can tell that he's having trouble fitting into the tux, and is very uncomfortable and out of place. One of these days he'll just rip it off in frustration, and go bashing innocent people's heads in.

They say that male alligators make a noise that is subsonic - below the level of human hearing. Scientists have told us that the meaning of this sound is very simple; basically, "I'm here, and I'm bigger than you." If this sound had a smell, it would be the smell of Quorum. A close cousin of Azzaro pour Homme, but drier, woodier, and an opening like a straight up slap to the face. Wear this in the daytime, while you are wearing a suit, studs, and cufflinks. Absolutely essential.

My other half was given a bottle of this by some well-meaning relative one Christmas. He never wore it, and I can understand why. This is old fashioned, in your face, slap it all over cologne. I dislike it intensely. He told me to get rid of it so I poured it down the kitchen sink in order to recycle the bottle. I can still smell it now, despite following it with a hefty dose of bleach.
Not my cup of tea at all.

My father bought this for me as a teen-ager. I could never remember what happened to that bottle. I ran across it one day and decided to sniff it for old times sake. I immediately knew why that bottle went missing. Seems they just threw a bunch of oils in a bottle that amount to chaos. Sorry Dad.

Some fragrances are referred to as " Sex in a bottle." This is crotch in a bottle.

Can't believe anyone actually likes this; it's too strong & smells cheap. Do yourself a favor and try it before buying. If you don't like sweet or fruity fragrances and want something unmistakably 'manly' there are hundreds of far, far better choices from Dunhill to Minotaure to Roma, etc.

WOW. This is HORRENDOUS. I still remember the thread this was recommended to me. I was looking for a deep woody floral fragrance. I went and bought it blind the very same day. I wanted to shoot myself in the face when I finally smelled it. This is a grossly low class herbal leather fragrance. Quorum makes Z-14 smell like Tabac Blond. Quorum is horribly offensive.
