    Default Acier Aluminium

    Does anybody get any resemblance or trace of a metallic note? I am asking because I dont get any at all. I love this one , so weir and unique. I get some banana smell though..

    I get metallic in Chrome, L Anarchiste, and even in Chanel Egoiste Platinum but nothing from AA.

    When I sampled it a while back, it smelled to me like an astronaut had sex in a space station.Unfortunately that's not a smell I want to smell like, but it's definitely a great fragrance. I definitely get the metallic *twinge - it's more of a texture and feeling than a specific note - like the whole thing is metallic to me.

    That's a good way of putting it. I think more of sex in an airplane restroom (sex smell plus blue airplane toilet juice). I am not a fan.

    No, nothing I'd call "metallic." Basically a fruity-sweet ambery oriental. I like it, but metal it ain't.

    The opening accord surely doesn't smell like metal (to me), but it feels somehow as cold as metal.

    It is like a pillow of vanilla and orange rinds.
    Wonderful stuff, I'm wearing it today. It smells to me of orange blossom, some nice bigarrade and a very good vanilla and ambergris underneath. There is something strangely cold in the high register which smells a little metalic, I think of it as something like a curdle interaction of the fruity aldehydes and acidity with the balsamic vanillic notes. It is this which is also a bit banana-like, I think, though I never thought of it like that until I read it. What is even more impressive for me is that it retains a softness throughout.

    lol, I really don't get anything sexual from this fragrance. More like a cat peed in the operating room to me.

    I definitely get the banana note, it smells like banana Laffy Taffy to me (y'know, the chewy stuff with the lame jokes on the wrapper). :P

    But Vibert, the first sentence of your Acier Aluminium review reads:

    The celebrated/dreaded odd metallic note is there in force at the outset.

    7 of the 42 reviews in the directory make reference to incense. I think (perhaps wrongly) that is what people interpret as the metallic accord in AA. Just a theory.

    Better revise that...I wouldn't call it "metallic" now, but rather "tart," or even "acidic."
