    Default Nino Cerruti (1979) and Fair Play

    I used to love this discontinued fragance... had a original sample and loved when I was a teenager; now I'm searching a bottle of this retro gem... it's not only the smell but the memories...


    But I see there's another vintage fragance called Nino Cerruti Fair Play... I think from 1986... it shares the same rectangular bottle and the box is near similar too; anyone had tried this version? any similarities with the original '79 Nino Cerruti??

    They're not very similar. Whereas Nino Cerruti (1979) is all about the successful integration of a floral aspect, Fair Play is emphasizing herbal, mossy and woodsy aspects. If you've smelled VC&A's "Tsar", you know the general direction although I'd prefer Fair Play because it has a little bit more depht and warmth thanks to a better base. Fair Play was fairly good in hindsight but not nearly as original or uniqe as Nino Cerruti (1979).

    Thank you very much for the info... I'm searching something similar to the original Cerruti but I think is a lost battle!!

    I 've heard old Givenchy Insense had similarities with NC '79... I can't say anything cause I didn't tried yet...
