    Default Isotta Fraschini Uomo

    Has anyone tried the new Isotta Fraschini uomo? Sounds very traditional.

    Ive never heard of this. And the link says No Product Found.

    This is the car Norma Desmond has in Sunset Boulevard, though.

    Strange, with me the link works. You have to go to www.ausliebezumduft.de, switch to English, choose "fragrances", and you'll find it in the house list on the left.

    Some group apparently acquired the license to produce various luxury items under the name, but all you find in the net is the site of the old company that still builds motors (for boats, these days).

    Wearing this today and I'm finding that I really don't have an opinion either way. It is a very traditional fragrance. Reminds me of Tuscany or Tuscany Forte, but for an EDP, the longevity is poor on my skin. So all in all not bad, but not great and not worth the price.

    Regards,

    Dang!, You are on top of it. Thanks alot for the news. Sounds like I can live without this one. What is with all the weak EDPs lately?

    Just ordered samples from you know where. Will report back to base when the test mission is accomplished.

    I got a chance to try this today and was really impressed. Yes, it is a bit traditional, but it complexity is fascinating. It is both fresh and clean (not in an ozonic, more of a soapy sort) and warm and spicy at the same time. The drydown is classic and classy. I went to Scentbar this afternoon and after smelling at least a dozen different scents, this one impressed me the most. Anybody else smelled it?

    Just got a tester of this yesterday. I agree that the complexity is fascinating, I love this one. It's on my wishlist now.

    Fresh and clean, yet spicy. Sounds like Cologne du 68 by Guerlain. Would you agree Brent?

    I finally tried this today.

    I have to agree with sjas1962 above, I got the Tuscany by Aramis vibe from it, when I applied it also. But instead of smelling like an 80's fragrance, it comes across more like a Creed or Penhaligon's. So yes, t_g_l - it is a traditional smelling fragrance. I think you'd love this one.

    Very strong cypress notes (almost gave me a headache, like pine does sometimes) and for this, I got the Blenheim Bouquet reference. But still, it's a little more resinous than BB and yet doesn't ultiumately satisfy me as much as Cypress Musc by Creed does.

    Noteworthy. Interesting. But not bottle worthy for me.

    Hm, thanks for the description. I may give it a try in December when I do my x-mas shopping in Frankfurt. Though with Cypres Musc and Crown Town & Country on the shelf it's not as urgent as others, I'd gather.

    I don't know, it is kind of "old" smelling to me. I like traditional fragrances, and historic fragrances, but this is a bit sweet and licorice like at points. Not great IMHO.

    HMMM...Sounds like it not only isn't breaking any new ground but also isn't carving out its own place within the myriad of citrus and cedar "classics".

    That licorice note mentioned above piqued my interest though. Is it strong enough to bother trying?

    If you're asking, is the licorce note strong enough, IMO it was not. I barely smelled the licorice. Much more cypress/evergreen!
