A nice Green and spicy forgotten old school!
Soprani has a lot in common with those 80's green fougeres but probably due to its release date (88), It's more subtle and bright than most of the dark/smoky green scents from that decade. Its spicy character reminds me of a lighter version of YSL Jazz, although I can't detect any sweetness in Soprani while there's some sweetness in Jazz's spicy "greeness". It's quite linear and if there's any evolution It's imperceptible to my untrained nose. The new version (with silver cap) lacks oakmoss (now the box lists tree moss), so It's definitely lighter than its predecessor (black cap) and overall, less creamier and dense. Anyway, It's still a nice fragrance: spicy, fresh and green with an old school vibe.
How could you forget scents like this one? An herbal and leathery "yellow" fluid full of class and discretion. The juice is all at once hesperidic-aromatic, piney than finally mossy and leathery with spicy, floral and musky nuances. The sharpness is not extreme and the juice keeps some grassy and leathery kind of smoothness with a touch of bitterness and a restrained dusty austerity made of oakmoss, dry spices, olibanum and labdanum. Dry down is absolutely subtle and fine despite its combination of grey-green heavy notes from the forest. Classic and conservative with a touch of woodsy mystery.

A brief yet very pleasant green leather and okamoss scent with dabs of subtle herbs in between. Longevity was rather lacking. Smooth yet spicy and good to wear in the early fall or late spring when it's slight warm but not too cool out. The opening is sharp bergamot but that quickly settles. I find this to be somewhat generic in the spicy aromatic fougere genre.

I really like this cologne, however I find that its longevity is very brief on my skin. I find it very clean and refreshing, with a slight initial citrus note that dries down into a nice scent.
I find that I tend to wear this scent primarily during the summer months, and that I haven't had any issues with over applying it.
Overall, I find this scent uplifting, more of an early morning/afternoon summer scent that is invigorating to my senses.
Very, very fine. In fact, to my nose, a fragrant revelation. How best to describe it? In some ways, like a rather sharper and herbier Ho Hang. In other ways,like a cousin of Monsieur Rochas. It has, too, some affinities with the long forgotten but excellent Cellini by Faberge. In sum: the essence of clean and refreshing with a distinguished herby development and a slight sharp edge - yet the overall blend is harmonious and smooth. Quality all the way. A real work of art.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL EASY DUTY FALL FRAGRANCE. IT'S GREEN, FRESH, AND FINALLY WARM. IT'S DEFINITELY WORH A TRY. IT'S NOT LOUD...BUT IT IS CLASSY AND FINE. JOSH AUGUSTT
