AnOther 13 fragrance notes

Reviews of AnOther 13

Almost 10 years on and this is still quite relevant. Well, sort of. This is less a stand-alone jus and more a fragrance booster in general.

It is decidedly more masculine to my nose, presenting a pseudo-gonadotropic vibe that might be off-putting to some.

At some point in its evolution, it smells like a very well constructed Claiborne Curve, minus any headache inducing vibe.

Layers well with a wide variety of jus, and a little goes a long way.

Interesting. This smells to me like a deconstruction of a Creed smell, like what you'd get if you took away the natural topnotes from a Creed aquatic and just let the synthetics run wild.

The star of the show is ambroxan, which will smell familiar to most people thanks to Aventus - it's the lightly metallic smell, the odd synthetic woods, and the creamy richness of Aventus, all in one complex chemical. It's also got an overdose of dihydromercynol, another Creed favorite, which smells like the brightness of lavender without the actual smell of lavender. There's something synthetically lemony in the background, and some disembodied sparkle that could be aldehydes or hedione.

In all, this mostly reminds me of Erolfa, with the lemon removed but the sparkle intact. It could also appeal to fans of the similarly odd-but-satisfying chemical stew of Bond's Coney Island.

Allegedly created around the ambrox synthetic musk, Another 13 is another Le Labo fragrance, much like Ambrette 9, that I simply do not get much out of. It doesn't smell bad but it doesn't smell of much at all. Some liken it to paper, which makes sense, given that the fragrance itself was created in collaboration with Another magazine, but it smells of citrus enough to take away any likeness to paper.

It's certainly weak enough to not even consider at a Le Labo Price point, but I don't even find the scent that pleasant, but rather, an odd fruity/musky mix that I'll be steering clear of.

Again, it's not a bad fragrance, like Ambrette 9, but I simply do not experience enough of its merits to outweigh its overall oddness.

Definitely unique as they come. Very clean and pretty safe IMO. Does have a paper smell as previously mentioned. For that price, I'm not trying to smell like paper. Can be worn in warm weather because of its lightness. 7/10

Clean to the core....What does it smell like? Yes, the resemblance is there...of a brand new magazine taken out of the plastic and opened for the first time(That fresh smell of the magazine paper)... But, it is so much more than that. I use this fragrance so much in the warm weather because I never get bored with it. In general, I prefer iso e super and ambroxan and in this fragrance, both notes are pushed to the max. The cleanliness can be described as "sterile", metallic, salty sweet, velvety and smooth....NOT clean like laundry....or fresh cotton. This fragrance is very hard to dislike. Another 13 is one of my favorite offerings from this house aside from Gaiac 10.

A very clean, steely, bright and sterile wood scent with added ambrox - the latter takes over soon as the centerpiece of this composition. Towards the end a bland musky component appears. An interesting exercise in biochemic dissection that remains dull overall. Maybe one could order it directly from Firmenich at a discount price. Limited silage but decent projection, with a good longevity of five hours. In case of a headache the salicylate might come in handy and one might save on the aspirin.
