    Default Moschino Pour Homme by Moschino (the original)

    there are only few reviews of this frag. is it a strong "powerhouse" or a subtle scent?
    is it more like Antaeus or bel ami or maybe aramis?

    Moschino Pour Homme is a 1990 Leather Chypre that has an obvious amber note IMO. I find it to be smooth in the opening, then edgier as the mids and base come on. Very good scent IMO and a classic for sure.

    Powerhouse? It's sillage and longevity are acceptable, but cannot be construed as a monster frag. It's balanced very well actually.

    Top : Bergamot OIl, Mace, Green Note, Rosemary, Lavender

    Mids : Carnation, Jasmine, Orris, Rose, Thyme

    Base : Amber, Benzoin, Castoreum, Cedar, Leather, Moss, Styrax, Tonka

    Sounds like you would be better off with Francesco Smalto, which is an excellent example of this kind of frag and is inexpensive now (until the last major lots are sold off). Because lavender really bothers me, though, I reach for Everlast Original 1910 (the lavender is much less prominent than in the old "powerhouses").

    I should have been more precise. Let's just say ( to me) it's in-between a powerhouse and subtle.

    It doesn't smell like any you have mentioned, but is very good in its own right.

    Have you tried MPH ?
    seems like your pointing 100's of people to Everlast & Francesco Salty without having tried the ones they inquire about .

    Damon .... its middle of the road sillage & longevity .
    Its nothing like Antaeus or Bel-Ami .
    To my nose the Styrax in the base gives thisz a very unique incense like quality .
    A 5 star frag in my lot !

    Got to sample this, courtesy of Dimitrious

    To my nose, it is an incense-y leather scent with citrus and spicy top notes. Very representative of an 80s classic. Not overpowering at all.

    I`d say that Moschino PH is resembling me of Bel Ami more than any other fragrance.
    Not so much lemons&leather, more musk and powdery spices, less sillage and brutal force - compared to Bel Ami.

    Very nice citrus-leather, good sillage but neither a monster nor subtle. Good longevity. Not very common though, so if you sample and like it, grab it.
