    Default Invasion Barbare

    Man, this stuff is sooooooo good. In fact it's perfect. 10/10.

    I've been fooling around with a sample for a little over a month now. It blows me away every time I wear it.

    Yep, it's pure class. I hate doing it but I give it 10/10 too! Possibly the perfect scent. It's a shame I can't afford it, haha!!

    Have you tried Penhaligons Sartorial?

    I've never tried it. Do they smell similar or is sartorial another one you'd give a 10? I'll have to sample it.

    To my nose they are somewhat similar. Both nu-fougeres (newgeres). I'd try it out and see what you think

    Invasion Barbare is a much more modern intrpretation of a fougere. I bought a decent sized sample and wore it a couple of times and can't embrace it myself. Something unfamiliar about it I can't wrap my nose around. But this is not a knock...it's a neat scent. Just not for me ( right now anyway).

    I tend to think Sartorial is warmer and a bit more traditional.

    I'll say this for IB. The scent from the previous days wearing was waiting in my car for me 20 hours later.

    To me it smells very similar to fruity pebbles - that whif you get when you first open a new box. Not a bad smell, but "Invasion Barbare" is a complete misnomer. It should be called "childish candy smell." It has very strong projection/longevity though.

    I don't get that at all. I can see the M7 Fresh//Fruit Loops comparison, but Fruity Pebbles or childish candy does not come to mind when I wear Invasion Barbare.

    I figured I'd probably end up buying 5 moderately priced frags over the next several months so instead I decided to get this and just put an end to spending for a while.

    In fact I hope to take that approach more often in the future.

    I like Invasion Barbare too, but i disagree about it being innovative or something. I think it is a very well done high quality fougere, but i feel it's still by-the-book and formulaic. Not much originality, i've smelled this fragrance many times before, what we get here is possibly the epitome of this genre (which isn't bad at all obviously) and not a creative breakthrough, which was my hope when i first sampled it.

    I also think IB is great, and wanted to share my strategy for dealing with the high cost:

    MDCI has a popular samples program, and there are a lot of 10ml bottles of IB floating around. By targeting samples, I was able to build a 60ml stash of IB for less than half of the price of a bottle. Just an idea for fans who care mostly about the juice itself.

    I also really like Sartorial, apparently this "nu-gére" genre is for me. The beeswax and linden of Sartorial make it warmer and earthier, but I still find plenty of time wear both scents.

    Exactly what I'd have done myself. Whether you're wearing a fragrance from a full bottle or a decant/sample, it still smells the same. No one else has to know. That is if you're into fragrancewear, not fragrance bottle collecting.

    I have just got a sample of this from lucky scent. It opens with a candy type fragrance and seems to morph on your skin with lavender and violets weaving in and out and I can tell its a very complex fragrance. After a while I find it gets warmer and woody with that candy fragrance in the background. The more I smell it the more I like it and it seems to grow on you.

    What I find amazing about it is it seems alive on your skin in the way the scent keeps changing everytime you smell it.lol This may sound crazy but it seems to morph when your actually smelling it. Excellent creation. I hope my other sample which is Puredistance M matches up to this one.

    I don't know if you noticed yet but there's also this very slight, animalic musk underneath the whole thing that really brings it together.

    It's cool that you pointed out how it morphs. It really does, to the point where it never actually smells exactly the same but it's almost like it's always a different version of itself. Sometimes the vanilla is more prominent, sometimes the orange or the woods, and sometimes the musk or the candy aspect. I find it also works really well on clothes, in fact I had a sample and sprayed it on a shirt, then accidentally put the shirt on about 3 days later and couldn't get over how good it smelled. That's what finally convinced me to get it.

    I really love the opening and the basenotes. Opening gives me different dried fruity aroma a la fougere style. I get a powdery, ambery, "incensy" sillage that is so addicting in the basenotes - my favorite part. Now there's something in the heart note that's making me hesitant of getting this one. Something that turns me off. Perhaps I am not a fougere loving fume head. I'll try this one again, this time with light application and see.

    After a year of sniffing new things niche and non, this one is still the one that strikes me as the one that has the most quality. It's just amazing every single time I smell it and the compliments have rivaled Aventus. Super manly , perfect spice, and musk and a hint of dirty in there somewhere but JUST barely.

    This would be THE bottle I would keep out of 65 ish if I had to drop all but 1, the price atm keeps me milking the wears but I will never regret the full bottle of this.

    Nothing I have sniffed so far even comes close to imitating the combo here.

    8/10 for me, I like it but I don't feel the spices are very well blended into the frag as a whole. It's almost like the spices hover over the fougere accord.

    Also, I think the name Invasion Barbare could be a double entendre... Barbarian/Barber Shop. As a fougere it has a strong barber shop feel to it.

    It works for both daily wear and formal, it's just as classical as it gets.

    In the past, Parfums MDCI used to offer a set of 7 or so fragrances in 10ml bottles for eur 77 or so, don't know if it's still the case. But that's obviously a great way to sample IB as well as the others.

    I like IB's opening and heart notes, but not a fan of its drydown as well, as it gives me a little bit of Axe body spray vibe. I don't think it's worth its price tag of $4/ml, IMO.

    Maybe it needs more wearings, I don't know.

    No. I consider it unisex but leaning slightly masculine. The candy/vanilla thing and floral lavender are the culprits. A woman could definitely pull it off imo. I likely very manly scents and this ain't that.

    Persianprince: Coincidentally I'm wearing IB today, and yes, I still feel the same about it. In fact I like it even more then I did when I originally started wearing it. I think a 10ml decant would be a great starting place for you, as it will give you enough wears to begin to fully appreciate it. I never get sick of this scent, and I wear it a lot.

    It smells nothing like fruity pebbles, don't worry about that.


    It works very well as a daily scent--it's relaxed yet classy, elegant and understated. It is never harsh or intrusive. At the same time, it has excellent sillage and longevity. There's also a low key animalic musk in the drydown that adds just the right amount of sexiness to it. (Can't believe I just typed that.) It also works great in a more formal situation. In fact its versatility is one of the reasons why I can justify the hefty price tag of this one--you'll get plenty of use out of it. The only situation I would not wear it in is a casual summer, shorts and t-shirt kind of day.

    Now Smell This (the website) has a very good review of it. You may want to read that.

    It smells similar to Le Male and Histoires de Parfums 1725 Casanova, but of course much different also.

    One of my favorites. I classify IB as a fougere/woody oriental hybrid (nu-gere?). Its quite complex in how it seamlessly bounces from citrus/violet to lavender to the sweet woodsy, spicy, musky drydown. I don't get the fruity pebbles vibe (maybe a hint in the top notes), but I do get a malted-milk like vibe in the mid notes. Love it.

    I think these are actually fairly good reference points, especially the 1725, and it does have rather fantastic longevity, as stated by others.

    That aside however, my personal feelings towards this one are similar to this:

Like ChoppedGarlic's impression, the only thought that kept running through my head when wearing it was that I'd smelled it before.

    Just my opinion though, and it appears I'm in the minority on this one. But don't get me wrong, it did smell good, just not my style (also I never got the Fruity Pebbles vibe either).

    I'd agree. The drydown is VERY similar to Versace Black Jeans, and many other fougeres.

    I have to agree that this is really something special. I got 24mL from the sampling program, and I am GLAD I did. It is not the most unique creation ever, but it does ooze class and sophistication. It is tailored so that every note is blended so perfectly. It doesn't last super long on my skin (at least in the winter), but I am okay with that, as the few hours I get from it are so enjoyable.

    I will most likely buy a bottle once my samples run out, which will probably be in a few years since I get that discount from the samples.

    Also, everyone should read what BuysBlind wrote, as that is pretty much how I feel about it, and very useful to help understand the fragrance.

    IB is one of the truly great ones currently in production. IMO, it is a masterpiece of blending components that have not always been successfully blended previously. The end result is a fragrance of class, sophistication and understated elegance. It is one I look forward to wearing at any formal event and even at my office. I think it deserves to have that respect; wearing it with jeans and a T-shirt just wouldn't seem right.

    I agree that it would be great for a formal event or for the office, but since I am in college, pretty much everything I wear is with a tee shirt and jeans. It works surprisingly well! You should try it sometime. Having that ultra fresh, classy feeling while lounging is awesome.

Too early to declare it a masterpiece but it has the potential to be one...I can see myself wearing this fragrance 41 years from now when I am 70 ( timeless)..as far as the overall smell I give it an initial 9-10/10 .. When I get a good vibe of the drydown I will decide if it is a 10/10.
