    Exclamation Sharing a secret: the best under-the-radar fragrance prize goes to...

    ...L'Essence de Cerruti.

    - 5 positives out of 5 reviews on Basenotes.
    - Predominately loves and likes on Fragrantica.
    - 4 stars on Osmoz.
    - 79% out of 14 ratings on Parfumo, better than top 5 fragrances in Basenotes thread "Which scent gets you the most female compliments?" (GIT = 77%, Aventus = 78%, Issey Miyake = 78%, MI = 76%, YSL La Nuit = 79%)



    I can't believe how underhyped this fragrance is. This scent is awesome: versatile and unique at the same time and selling at ridiculously low prices - proving how little prices have to do with the art and quality of fragrances - it's all about marketing (that includes niche).

    Sample this.

    How is longevity/projection? Describe more please. I'll do some research on it as well but I'd love to hear some more.

    I have been wanting to sample this frag for a few weeks now, but can't seem to find a sample, and haven't been able to talk myself into blind buying it yet... oh well, I may have to since it's in the low $20's for a bottle.

    I've sampled this before, but forgot which one it was. I'm almost positive it was this one now by how people are describing it. Nice light summer fragrance.

    I sure hope so because I got one to. They have allot of positive feedback and the negatives seem to be complaints on shipping times for international shipments mostly. I have never bought from them before though, has anyone else bought from fragrancealley on ebay??

    I really doubt anyone would bother faking a relatively unknown, inexpensive fragrance like this.

    It's not bad. Personally I didn't care enough for it to keep my bottle though. Just another light, sweet scent.

    I bought both the ASL and the EDT about a year ago.

    It sort of belongs in the "Italian Woods" category but it also has a discernable musk note on the bottom, giving it something of an Old School character overall. This fragrance would not have been out of place in the 70's.

    I wouldn't exactly call it "light" either. It won't punch you in the nose, but it's quite a bit more potent than e.g. D&G The One Gentleman or any of the DSquared Woods. Good staying power too.

    Overall, I would say this is definitely a value-for-the-money fragrance for the 40+ crowd. High quality, classy and versatile. You can wear this practically anywhere and it won't be out of place. The bottle's really nice too: solid metal cap and everything.

    I like this fragrance a lot, although I don't know that it's quite "edgy" enough to be a favourite among the Basenotes crowd.

    Yeah I do.
    As many have already said, this is a relatively unknown fragrance so the possibility of it being faked is pretty low.
    Worse come to worst I can always go through paypal for my money back if the juice isn't authentic, but it's $20 so I'm not too concerned.

    That's a pretty good description of it. Anyone that enjoys Guerlain Derby or any of the classic Guerlain's will probably really enjoy this.
