    Default New Fragrance: 10 Corso Como Uomo EDP

    10 CORSO COMO UOMO

    The new 10 Corso Como fragrance for man.

    Tradition meets innovation and the opposites of hot and cool combine in the 10 Corso Como Uomo fragrance and its intriguing colour. The notes of ginger and black pepper ending with a subtle base of musk and amber give a rich and intense note of sensuality.

    Mysore vanilla - who knew?

    The whole pyramid sounds very interesting.

    I got to try this at Neimans yesterday with a bunch of BNers (hi everyone!) and it ended up as my SOTD. Funny, between the 8 of us, I don't think any of us mentioned 80% of these notes...

    It was very much a tar-fueled burnt-wood incense with a distinct animalic background that dried down to a creamy Iso E Super base. It struck me as somewhere between CDG (now that they're messing around with animalics under their incenses) and the really rough smokiness of a Nasomato.

    Oh, and is "mysore vanilla" even a thing??

    Hmm, I'm a little out of my incense phase as it's gotten warmer, but I'm definitely interested in trying this one. Thanks for the heads up!

    Received my purchased bottle directly from 10 CC yesterday. First impression: Close to Comme des Garcons 2 Man for the first three hours. Burnt wood, as Rogolai mentionned. A pleasing scent, but nothing really surprising or unique. Too close to CdG for me.

    Anyone else try this? I got a sample of it from a kind Basenoter and yet...I don't think I've heard anyone talk about it at all.

    I've tried it several times at Liberty. I loved it. The first thing that popped into mind was Rose 31. It has that same cedary vibe albeit without the rose (although I did get a tiiiiny floral note), and a bit spicier on top. Very, very nice.

    This is news to me. I don't know how I missed this thread.
    It sounds decent, although I am getting sick of ginger and Iso E Super.

    Sadly, not impressed. I too received a sample from one of our generous members, and have found the scent wan, dull, and faceless. My unenthusiastic review is here.

    He he - I can't find fault with anything Off-Scenter's review says, except that I actually really liked 10CCU. It's probably true that it's not breaking any new ground, but it does a bunch of stuff that I like...

    I like it also. But I have other fragrances that cover the same territory, so did not see the need to purchase it.

    I'm testing this, just on a paper for now. The top notes are quite interesting indeed - a dark, burned wood that is rather medicinal and interesting. It is vaguely related to the drydown of Memoir Man. Rather quickly a slightly lemony, very peppery frankincense joins the fray - we've all smelled this before but here it is rendered in a more bluish/gray tone which does make it more interesting, if almost bleak. I'll post more after it has dried down.

    Testing this tonight - it reminds me strongly of Gucci Pour Homme, I mean identical. If it were cheaper I think it would be a nice option, but the price of this one doesn't make it a value over the Gucci...so why bother?
