    Default Murdocks

    Tried on Murdocks Black tea,and was very disappointed at its longevity,seemed to be about 1/2 hour.
    Not a bad price by todays outrageous standards but prefer longer lasting.

    Murdocks has very good barbershop fragrances. I own Bright Leaf. Original tobacco leaf with a touch of cedar. Wore it a lot this winter. On me, it last about 6 hours. Jack Hunter is Murdock man on basenotes.

    I have four bottles from the range including Black Tea and I get about five or so hours from that one before it turns into a skin scent. I'm guessing it must be down to skin chemistry why you get bad longevity.

    I'm wearing this today as my SOTD and it's my 2nd favourite behind Black Tea.

    It opens with a fresh soft spicyness with patchouli, cardamom with a dose of pepper and it smells very nice. The patchouli is very earthy and low key, it never overwhelms but is subtlely blended amongst other notes but is still the spicy heart of the fragrance.

    I can pick up some florals in the midnotes mixing with the earthy spicy patchouli which is probably what is giving the scent that freshness in the opening. In the basenotes you can smell the earthy patchouli on a light bed of Frankincense and I have to say it smells really nice . Well worth checking out.

    Hey Jack, Have you ever used Bright Leaf in warmer weather? Only wore this during the winter.

    Me too, it will be interesting how it performs and if the tobacco will bloom or become cloying. Will test it out when the warmer weather reaches England if it ever does.

    Will take a chance and test it out tomorrow. I'll give myself a starter kit with two sprays, and by the time I go to the gym, I will know if this works out for me.

    I wear it quite often down here in Florida. Never has become cloying. Seeing it they advertise it as a fragrance worn by gentleman in 50's Havana, which is not known for cool weather, you should be fine.

    I think the cedar note keeps the tobacco from becoming cloying like I get with TV when it is humid down here.

    I can't even begin to imagine wearing TV in the humid South Florida. It must radiate like an atomic bomb.
