Personally never liked it.
I recently purchased a bottle of Pino Silvestre and yes It was a blind purchase. So far let me just say that I am not sure about this one. The initial spray of Pino Silvestre and the 1st hour dry down is not good at all.
Your thoughts with Pino Silvestre??
Personally never liked it.
it is unique, i think i have given up on wearing it, too dated
Great stuff! Didn't like it first but it grew on me - now I'm lovin' it! Best bargain.
not into it either ... way too much sweet linalool, smells cheap and unbalanced to me. (linalool gives sort of a simplified rosewood aroma). also, no pine.
A like here. Yes, it could perhaps be a little richer, but the quality price ratio is unbeatable (in Italy, it goes for 10 eur for 100ml).
The gocce di pino (pine drops) flanker is a touch more resiny.
Hard to beat for the money. Very Italian. Not for everyone.
I like this one, and wear it to the office on occasion. This was a blind buy for me as well, a risk I was willing to take for only $12 a bottle.
If you don't like the first hour then it's not for you. The base is mostly generic cedar and amber, with a little of the opening notes continuing into it. You can get a cedar and amber dominant base in many, many frags.

I can't not like it. Too many good memories attached to it already.

This is one that I respect but do not like.....Gary
I'd take Aspen over Pino Silvestre any day of the week.
Have and enjoy it.
I don't know much about Fragrances, but I'm happy with it.
Its really strong for the first 10 minutes then weakens a lot.
...when you wanna smell like a Christmas tree(Pino Silvestre= Italian for Cristmas tree[see the bottle]), there is no better...!
I've always enjoyed it and yet I can admit that my opinion has developed. Initially, I liked the concept and the bottle, but found the scent a bit harsh and strong in its initial stages. I've grown to love it. Now I find it very appealing from beginning to end. It is herbal much more than coniferous, but I agree with many others that for the price it is outstanding.
I do realize that I went through a process of coming to like it. The sense of familiarity now brings me back.
Perhaps not everyone would want to "pay their dues" on this (or any other scent) and I respect that. But as a "Conehead" I simply wanted to love this scent -- and now I do!

It is a great scent, and at first I was dissapointed. After I first sprayed it on it seemed to be was salt and pepper, and then dissapear. Well I went to bed and when I woke up I smelled this amazing pine smell. It dissapears, and then comes back with a delightful smelling vengeance. Even though it is great on it's own I like to layer it with Dirty English.
It develops into a clean, uncluttered, slightly linear (in a positive way, though), herbal accord, ad yes, its longevity could be improved, this may be the only significant flaw/fault of this scent's notes
So many memories attached to Pino as my late father wore this in the 80´s and as a kiddo I would steal it to impress the girls in school while listening to The Police. This fragrance sends me back to the 80´s even though it is much older.

I dunno, Pinoheads, PS smells too synthetic on me. Even Aspen is better. Green Polo is best. If I didn't wear it in high school
Wish Silvestre worked for me - mayeb I got a bad pine cone.....
