    Question Drakkar Noir - Shaving Cream?

    I just tested this frag for the first time (on paper, I'm guessing it's the current formulation) and about an hour in it smelled like barbasol shaving cream to me. It obviously didnt smell as cheap as shaving cream and it smelled great. Actually it smelled amazing. I'm 19 so to me it doesn't bring back "memories" and I can say it's pretty manly in a clean, young, and energetic way. Anyone else get this shaving cream smell out of it? Basically what I want to know is if it will still have that smell on skin, or is it one of those that morphs into something else? I'm afraid it might because I've never heard it referenced to shaving cream and I'm guessing most of these reviews here are drawn from actual wears.

    (Kinda off topic but I also tested the Vintage Boss #1 on paper and it smelled awful. My friend used to have the current formulation a few months ago and it smelled amazing, one of the best things ever. Idk if this had to do with vintage vs current or paper vs skin.)

    I don't see how Drakkar Noir can resemble the smell of a shaving cream. But I totally agree that Drakkar Noir is one fantastic fragrance

    I can sort of see the shaving cream association as the dry down is a bit soapy. Not sure I would have made the association myself, but I guess I can see how that could be perceived.

    I don't get that shaving smell either.

    YSL Rive Gauche PH smells like Barbasol and I can say that the Drakkar Noir and Rive Gauche PH share the same barbershop note.

    I can maybe see where a note or two could stand out for someone to get this, but overall, I personally don't really get a barbasol/shaving cream smell from DK.
