    Bally Masculin by Bally of Switzerland

    It seems like this was either a limited release or it was never actually released. What a shame! This fragrance is unapologetic in its civility, with notes of fennel that linger. Its aura is cooler, rather than warm, with above-average longevity and sillage. Not a member of the powerhouse 1970s and 1980s club, it smells clean and natural, without a hint of "aqua" notes. Pair this with chalk stripes and fine leather. Bally, perhaps? Over the years I've wondered that this release was apparently aborted. Contemporaneous calls (circa 1990) to Bally SAs confirmed that no one was aware of its existence, but its consistent labeling says otherwise. Well worth the investment of time to locate it.
