AB Cashmere fragrance notes

Reviews of AB Cashmere

Almost a copy of Costume National Scent (Scent more than Scent Intense which is richer), the same glamour "burnt-sugary floral-amber dominant" twist (with osmanthus in replacement of the Scent's Mother Pearl of Hibiscus) plus a tad of soothing vanilla. As in CN Scent/Scent Intense the synthetic ambergris is in here "burnt-sugary", mellow, dark, vaguely "furry" and finally suedish (the suede-vibe is here notable despite a not listed leathery presence). A captivating night-out elusive musky fragrance with a dark misty patchouli, woods (a notable creamy-suedish sandalwood) and an enigmatic dusty suede. A "clubbing kind of creation", chic and "fashionable". Medium rating cause it is pratically the CN Scent's twin. For a dark leather jacket and an urban metrosexual outfit.

oriental suede, chemical blast from the past!

The opening is not unpleasant: a bit floral - a fairly ordinary jasmine with a good dose of osmanthus adding a slightly crisper herbal undertone. Then a rather nonspecific fruity undertone develops, which is smoothed by a soft patchouli.

The later stages reveal an awfully synthetic ambery aroma that has a vanilla tone added as a sweetener; all this is laced with the ever-so-popular concoction of white musks that is a bane of perfumery over the last couple of decades.

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

This is not a bad or disagreeable scent, wearable on warmer autumn days, but it is so generic and impersonal as a whole that is makes me yawn at times. Mediocre and synthetic it is. Once AI is a bit more developed, a similar product might possible to produce by a good computer with the right software on its own. Here comes the perfumer algorithm! 2.25/5.

The opening of Cashmere is extraordinarily similar to Scent Intense by Costume National, just a bit less "intense" and more greyish, but the notes are incredibly close (I have a bottle of the Intense and I just applied it on my other arm: the similarity is *really* close, especially initially and for quite a while). Basically Cashmere smells of sandalwood (a lot), cashmeran, a synthetic amber note (more like ambrette seeds or cetalox) and something fruity-floral on top, with the peculiar lively-aromatic juiciness of tea (Scent Intense comprises a tea leaves note, this one has osmanthus which is quite close to tea - not to insist on the comparison, but well...). All over this glossy, artificial creamy-woody-fruity concoction stands a light, grey, slightly dusty breeze of synthetic resinous incense. Say, something halfway Cuiron (apparently now that it's back in a different formulation we have to get used to say "the vintage" Cuiron), more or less any sandalwood scent (I thought of Geo Trumper's Sandalwood, for instance, but any average-cheap sandalwood works the same as reference) and as I said, Costume National's Scent Intense. After a while it becomes more a generic sandalwood scent on the sweet-creamy side, always also quite fruity. Pretty pointless to be honest, just get one of the scents I mentioned, which all cost a fraction of this (except Cuiron, obviously).

5/10
