    Monsieur Worth by Worth

    This refers to an "Eau de cologne triple": I cannot figure what this last term means, maybe the manufacturer wanted to convey the idea that it was a stronger eau de cologne, for its sillage and longevity are better than the blends so classified.

    It has the structure of a classic fougere, and when I mean "classic", I mean it is not of the kind of blend with an overpowering opening. The citric accords morph into woody / musky notes in short period of time in a not very complex way. This arrangement reminds me of other classics, like Eau Sauvage and Monsieur de Givenchy, but... the dirty / indolic notes are rather quite marked in comparisson to these last two. In that sense, it feels like the reformulated Monsieur Balmain: this last one achieves the same effect (a dark, prominent animalic note in the mid-base notes) in a much more clear way.

    For those expecting a sillage / longevity monster, this won´t be their choice. It is, indeed, the right one for occasions demanding a formal suit - Irefer to situatins when men have to be well groomed and perfumed the elegant way.
