Reviews of C for Men

Like all Clive Christian creations "C" is a really high quality, excessively constructed, and exhorbitantly priced fragrance. "C" is quite nice, masculine and yet fairly easy to wear, leaning slightly towards formal. While a pleasant scent, it's damn near impossible to pick out any individual notes or accords and for my taste I find it boring and missing identity. Nice, smells elegant, not worth the price and completely unremarkable. Still I can give it a thumbs up though.

CC is pricey, but CC delivers on complexity and quality. Leather, Tea and Tobacco take a whole slew of wood n florals for a ride.

Here's my test experience for "C" for Men by Clive Christian:

Mmm, opening smells of wet tobacco. Evidently, there are smidgens of citrus fruit peels present here (mandarin and lemon), along with some regular and green tea (familiar from my personal drinking devotion to all things tea). I am overwhelmed by the number of floral elements that went into "C" that I am ignorant to recognize individually, except for some jasmine, rose, and labdanum (rock rose).

Those plus thyme add subtle edges to the initial tea sensation (the wet tobacco start has faded greatly), creating a dry spicy vibe echoing cinnamon, cardamom, and clove.

A glance at the basenote ingredients is like a who's who of solid, agreeable foundational elements. Tobacco remains moderately present along with a pair-up with moderate leather; a nice crumble of bright oud wafting within, along with dry spiffy whiffs of cedar; a modern tip of the hat with touches of smoky tonka bean; dry patchouli-like mossiness rising up like the early dawn; amber also adding a fairly modern presence; vanilla injecting spicy sweetness; and some kind of subtle muskiness dancing within the haze of this crowded conconction. (I can't say if the elemi resin, olibanum, costus, guiacwood, cypress and orris show up, as I am ignorant of what they smell like.)

Ultimately, "C" for men by CC falls into the tobacco-leather-woody-spice category of scents. I can see how it can be off-putting for some. But there is enough in this creation that I recognize and enjoy, esp. leaning in the tobacco note arena. It appears to be designed more for older 30 somethings and older, for the more laid back, solemnly appointed man who like smelling mature even if it could alienate younger smellers.

A thumbs up for this busy, but IMO likable scent from CC! :-)

Clive Christian C, stinks! Has like a base chemical synthetic smell. Nothing fancy or attractive, and gives me a headache. I literally don't see who would be attracted to the smell of this, unless you are ultra wealthy and ,your nose is accustomed to this type of Smell? Eugh! I am still tempted to try out their other scents though, just not as tempted as before this experience.

The comparisons to Tom Ford Tuscan Leather are inevitable. They are very similar largely due to the raspberry and leather present in both.However, as others have stated, C is much more complex. The bright top notes in C are completely absent in Tuscan Leather. I can clearly detect the Mandarin and Tea in C and they compliment the fragrance very well. C seems much more smooth and "creamy" than Tuscan Leather. To my nose the rose and oud are also very easily detected in this fragrance. All in all, I would say that C is more like a mix of Tuscan Leather AND Noir de Noir rather than Tuscan Leather alone.I cannot say whether or not it is worth the price as that determination is purely subjective. I can say that I really enjoy it and I am happy to own a bottle.

a more refined version of Tuscan Leather, but much more expensive, not Worth its pricey price tag....
