VICTORIAN POSY is a finely wrought floral chypre that pays tribute to bygone eras when men think nothing of wearing floral fragrances. I could detect some citrus, galbanum, violet, rose, vetiver, amber and patchouli. There was even a moment when it reminded me of Chanel No.19! For a chypre it feels a little dry; perhaps whatever moss it used to have must have been rooted out by IFRA-mandated reformulations to the extent it now wears more like a traditional floral-based eau. But I still enjoy the subtle fluctuations between the floral and earthy elements.
