1989 Woody Chypre. Sharp opening with ginger and pimento in the heartnotes coming front and center quickly.
The citrus in the top notes seem to have a hard time getting a foothold. Rose doesn't waste much time either making a showing ensuring the mids win this battle.
I would have loved the cedar to be more dominant once the base gets hold. It's just too subtle and has me wondering about the Woody category. Even well after the scent should be into drydown, I still smell the middle accord.
Moods Uomo has good sillage and longevity, but I can't say I care for it much anymore. I guess I'm not a rose dominate scent lover.

I had no problem with longevity with this. There is a note in this juice that's "fuzzy" or "prickly" ( I know....bad description ), but it's this note or collaboration of notes that is off-putting to me.
Earlier, I thought it was rose, but I doubt that now after thinking it through. Other frags with either dominant or subordinate rose are likable to me, so I am unsure what it is about this scent that's unsettling.
