Story fragrance notes

Reviews of Story

100% post 90s green-fresh leafy citrusy vetiver which is a much better alternative to several other similarly themed niche offerings including a bunch of Creeds.

Simple but it does the trick for very cheap and lasts a good time too.

The opening blast is a real beauty: green saturated tones of ivy leaves and jasmine and a touch of spice blend perfectly with a bergamot-citrus mix; the result is exceedingly well balanced. In the drydown I get a bit of clary sage, soon followed by a very soft base composed of amber with cedar and a very light white musk. The green-fresh-dark components are very well balanced without losing structure, and the quality of the complement is convincing in quality. On the performance side the silage is adequate and the projection excellent. I get a longevity of six hours. Great on a cool spring day, this in one of my favourites from Paul Smith - a story I am very happy to listen to.

This is a bit of an odd one for me. I like the peppery opening along with the ivy, but I also get a bit of a cigarette butt note that sticks out like a sore thumb. Overall it's a decent fragrance, but not something I'd reach for.

Story by Paul Smith - One is initially treated to a blast of a lemony and slightly peppery, citric accord. The herbal and faintly woody aspects of ivy leaf intrude upon and commingle with this sparkling citrus, providing a crisp, leafy opening, which saunters to the awaiting middle. Here, in the heart, a floral potion from the sweet jasmine and cardboard-like mustiness of rose leaf tempers the jarring opening, and transitions to the welcoming base. An altering melange of grass-like and clean vetiver, white musk, with its laundered-linen illusion, as well as a rugged, mineral amber coalesce. With an errant metallic and faintly minty something fluttering about, the dry woodiness of cedar squires the cleanly mix to a refreshing drydown. This light and fresh composition has good projection and longevity, and will bloom in the spring, summer and fall. A very nice fragrance which can be had rather inexpensively.
