Elite by Floris (1980)

  1. odysseusm
    Check out the notes (from the Floris site, and substantially different from those on BN) and you will see a Conehead-worthy scent.
    Top: bergamot, cedar leaf, grapefruit, juniper berry, lemon, petitgrain
    Heart: bay, fir balsam, lavender
    Base: amber, cedarwood, leather, moss, musk, patchouli, vetiver
    For tomorrow's consideration.
  2. odysseusm
    This is an assertive dusky green scent, a more powerful sibling of Truefitt & Hill's Grafton.
    Citrus and herbal notes start things off. The juniper berry adds a gin-like brightness. Hints of conifer and camphor from the fir and lavender make for a refreshing brew.
    The patchouli is well done (not over-done): earthy and with a hint of leather. The fir balsam together with the patchouli creates an anise-like chord. Mossy and slightly salty dry-down. Great longevity.
  3. odysseusm
    This is a good, dry green scent. The bay leaf gives a powerful herbal note, and that is framed and freshened by juniper and fir balsam. Some good woody notes here. The dryness and hints of leather and moss give a masculine swagger to this scent. Well done. Floris also provides a bath/shower gel in this scent, which is a welcome feature.
