I am quite confused with Brioni. I certainly expected much more than an “eau sauvage” type of scent. However if you take into consideration the type of a Brioni customer you have to admit this one goes the right way. Totally unoffensive and brightly fresh from top to base, I can see it only as an elegant morning scent with good longevity but low projection. Starts with a nice and crisp citrus-green accord with a dominating verbena note (Brioni’s best part) to unwrap a more aromatic but still fresh heart with a touch of lavender. Add some clean patchouli and vetiver and you have a pleasant yet unnoticeable base. Beautiful and bold bottle with a wenge wood cap, presented in a leather case is the exact opposite to the original sample I got, which is totally unworthy of the Brioni brand name (just 0,3ml to spray out of a cheap looking paper card). Overall nice but for that price (250 pounds/100ml) I’ ll stick to Eau Sauvage.
