Sadly, Silvester has been discontinued as Cologne by Trumper, though it is still available as aftershave. My comments are on the Cologne. This has a delightful crisp opening. Pay attention the lime which is excellent but fleeting! The fragrance settles into quiet spice and light wood accords. A few hours later the spice continues, with a hint of what I think is well-executed vetiver. I agree with comments that this stays close to the skin, but I don’t find any coniferous or “green” notes (apart from the vetiver). Those seeking noble pine scents will have to look elsewhere. I am a fan of Mugler Cologne, and agree that the two scents are both “quiet performers”; however the scent profiles and emotional responses are different. Mugler = happy childhood reverie; Silvester = calm confidence. In sum – Silvester is a warm, comfortable, classy masculine scent.
