This was synthetic, potpourri, and confusing to the senses. It felt like a sterile office vibe. Didn't work for me

The first blast I get here is a cacophony of scents. It's fresh. It kinda smells like toothpaste. Minty cinnamon. There is something in here that sort of smells like commercial cleaners hotels use. Probably something to do with laundry musks. Its like you just brushed your teeth in a hotel after swimming in the pool. Doesn't smell dated... just different. Projection was average, but longevity was below average. I was barely able to smell a trace of it 4 hours later. After Yatagan and 3rd Man, this was an enormous letdown. Not impressed. Thumbs solidly down.

All I get is sickeningly sweet sandalwood and musk and a hint of cinnamon.
Linear, offensive, found myself grimacing and fanning the air. Washed off with a whince.
You have been warned.

Fragrance: 2/10
Projection: 7/10 -unfortunately-
Longevity: 7/10

i get a minty/metallic post-industrial orange...freshly baked apple pie sprinkled with cinnamon...not gourmand in the least though...more of a semi-classic office friendly men's cologne type of profile...very heavy on the metallic effect...dries down to a musky woodish finish...not terrible , but pass on this one...

I still have half of bottle with original formula. Maybe the most metallic scent i had ever sniffed and tried on my skin.

Cinnamon, musk, mint,tobacco, mandarin and some spices = a very interesting perfume by Caron.

I jumped onboard this one when it first came out in 2000. Always a big fan of Caron, I was taken with the daring metallic spicy note in l’Anarchiste; the copper bottle sealed the deal. I was never really comfortable with this one, though. I finished the bottle and moved on and only recently decided to retry it, knowing that it had been slightly reformulated. The Caron site asserts that “only the mint top note has been softened by Richard Fraysse, the overall composition remains unchanged.” It still smells much the same to me and I am reminded of what a quality juice this is. The listed notes of Mint, Orange Blossom, Sandalwood from the Indies, Vetiver Bourbon, Accord of 7 musks and Gaiac Wood have never sounded right to me. While others talk of mentholated, metallic oranges, I get metallic apple pie, even though apples and cinnamon are not among the notes. There is a soapy, musky woody base to this, to be sure, but to me l’Anarchiste brings to mind an apple pie being cut into with a sharp steel Sabatier knife, scratching into the metal pie tin as it goes—teeth on edge, mouth watering. Might be just the thing to wear for the coming holiday season.
