I like this scent.. It reminds me of Bulgari Black.. (circular bottle), and Polo Double Black,two frags it's hard to get hold of now.
It's got that rubbery,tarry, burnt toffee like smell.. but not unpleasant, just like the ones I mentioned.
It can be really cheap to buy, for 100ml bottle
It's an Eau de Parfum, but doesn't last as you would expect.
I can only give a neutral, because unlike 1881 original and Amber, it really let's me down when it quickly fades to nothing.. such a shame, because it does smell good..

I like this cologne. Spicy - fresh top notes probably best describes the first few sniffs, then it settles to a dry leathery sort of base and that gets slightly minty as the hours go by. Longevity is fair.
A day scent by my reckoning

1881 Signature is so damn good!
To be frank, as an EDP concentration I expected higher longevity and huge projection, which did not happen and that disappointed me a bit. Nevertheless, reapplying the scent more times lets me revisiting over and over again the intriguing and obscure leather accord, and that compensate that lack. It is all about soft and spicy leatheriness.

1881 Signature bottle evokes the original one, this time the numbers are engraved in the opaque black back while the rest is crystalline, thought the scent is not a flanker, yet a brand new spicy, coppery, and dark leather scent. It opens up with bitter juicy grapefruit, topped with freshly grated nutmeg and a tad of spicy black peppercorn. The cypress is not over-topping but gives a balsamic and calming effect to the scent.

Well, the initial whiff is a bit boozy, but then it moves onto a blend of oriental notes of green cardamom, pitchy labdanum, and extraordinary obscure and tanned leather. The leather in here is full of darkness, loud, rough, it is the idyllic smell of Hell's brimstone if Hell had a smell, a kind of freshly made black asphalt with the liquid hot tar turning into the solid pitch. I am not saying it smells bad at all, rather the enigmatic leather is intoxicating and sublime! Weird enough, birmstone is a component that doesn't easily conform to one's idea of something pleasant, less alone fragrant. Yet believe me, at this stage the scent is really enjoyable and a real compliment getter, a kind of leather I have never smelt before.

The leather accord stays longer in the background before the scent begins spreading oriental notes of fumy vetiver, woody pepper tree, mild patchouli, and smooth amber.

The fusion of the aforementioned notes creates a warm aroma that gives it best during cold weather, late autumn and winter are perfect times for wearing it. Most people will prefer it for clubbing, dates, and nights out, however, I am wearing it since this morning and nothing was wrong with it. Elegant, bold, and modern, 1881 Signature is ideal for dudes in their late 20 and over.

Have fun,

Alas, 1881 Oud is presented.

No oud in the notes, but there is no mistaken that this is an oud fragrance. Dark medicinal oud with nuances of subtle sweetness and mild woodiness.

Closest to the Bella Notte flanker but takes several notches darker. I was hoping for 1881 original with a new modern twist (look at Edition Blanche for that) instead this is really a flanker of a flanker: Bella Notte Eau Nuit or Oud Nuit.

Worth a sniff, can't tell if you will like it, but good jus nonetheless.
