The juniper is quite nicely done, and is in the foreground on me, with a lemon with sone bergamot keeping in the background. A somewhat bright opening.

The drydown fiends greener, with violet leaves and gentle spices (mace, cardamom and whiffs of nutmeg) also present. Later on a green and light vetiver arises, an soft vetiver with no significant earthiness on me.

The base is wood-centred. Sequoia, touches of guaiac, and lots of white musks that dominate towards the end.

I get moderate sillage, good projection, and five hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant scent for warmer autumn days and with an original twist, and lacking intensity in the base, which is also a bit too generic. 2.75/5

The juniper showcased here is the same lovely juniper from Amouage Journey Man, but here it's given a fresher, woodier presentation with violet and cedar. Lovely stuff.

Sweet tea in a pet store.
Fresh wood. Smells like you are sipping a sweet tea after laying cedar mulch around your house. Its nice. Longevity, I don't know. Value, it is stupid cheap. Like under $25. At that price, this is quite a nice smelling fragrance. It doesn't smell cheap. Neutral.

Fantastic bottle. That said, the best woody scent I’ve come across in a long time. Maybe *the* best I’ve tried in my limited experience. Wood might appear in men’s scents in different guises. First we sometimes have flat cedar wood like pencil shavings. Second, we may encounter fresh, resinous greenish wood as if a log has just been split by an axe. Finally, there is a combination of the two with *bark* as in sawing a log instead of chopping lengthwise. Equus has that third additional bark plus wood accord, it is spicy and perhaps due to mace/nutmeg or other ingredients. Furthermore, citrus aspects play with the spice and conjure an ethereal orange peel that goes perfectly with the wood and bark scenario. As everthing wears off, one is left with an unremarkable but inoffensive drydown that seems to have an ashy quality as well as some Encre Noire characteristics. That clashes a bit with the bold opening.

Lalique Equus is an early adopter of a new gentlemanly accord that gained momentum in the early 2010s. This accord consisted of violet leaf, vetiver and black pepper and gained prominence in cheaper fragrances often carrying prestige branding (think Mercedes Benz by Mercedes Benz, Bentley Infinite, Givenchy Gentleman Only, Dsquared He Wood Rocky Mountain, Mancera Wind Wood). But Lalique executed the accord to its full woody potential, taking the woodiness of the black pepper and fleshing it out with numerous other woody notes until the whole thing smelled like freshly sawn lumber with floral undertones. Sequoia wood is a prominent player in the woody medley. The woodiness calms down after the first hour and Equus begins to smell much more like the other fragrances in this genre, with that familiar violet leaf and Vetiver dance. Ultimately it makes for a nice occassional wear to work .

This is ok at best but nothing to write home about. It begins with a very nice smelling citrus (bergamot mainly) blend with a faint peppery undertone. But on the drydown (within a few minutes) the scent becomes one of realistic wood accord (I'm guessing this is the sequoia) with sweet nutmeg and violet leaf. The overall impression oddly is of a cappaccino. After a while, it ends up smelling like vanilla-musk but with violet leaf (it's very boring to my nose and I'm not a huge fan). There are some notes I absolutely love in all their incarnations (like neroli) while others I just plain cannot stand if they are too prominent - and violet leaf is one of them. Hence, I'm not a huge fan of this fragrance. Sillage is moderate as is longevity (on the lower end for a eau de parfum). People who love wood colognes will probably like this a lot. But to me it smells like a refined version of Quorum Silver. It's a like, not a love.
