Impressive looking bottle to showcase this 2006 creation from Nathalie Lorson who by the way had also composed Lalique's Encre Noire in that same year. But looks aside, TRUSSARDI INSIDE does away with the archetypical 3-level pyramid and dives right inside the heart of the scent from the get-go, unleashing a mild, rather dry woodsy aroma punctuated with pepper and coffee accords. As it dries down, the pepper fades into the background to reveal subtle hints of tobacco on top of the woods. It's funny how I suddenly found myself thinking of expensive furniture in dark wood panelled stores. Perhaps that's what this skin scent reminds me of - classy elegance. It certainly bears that quiet self assuredness you tend to find among men of worldly experience, the kind of men who simply don't give a damn about whether or not you can smell this scent on him.
