Moustache Eau de Parfum fragrance notes

Reviews of Moustache Eau de Parfum

Tangerine starts things off with a slightly oily leather which is soon joined by a smooth vanilla. Pink pepper and a slight rose adds a captivating vibe to the overall fragrance.

This smells very nice indeed and everything is balanced well so not one note dominates the other. Later on in the drydown a cedar and patchouli accord can be smelled.

When you smell this you can smell a portion of the tangerine, rose, pink pepper, vanilla and leather all together. It has a romantic vibe to the scent and is very pleasing on the nose.

Projection is within a arms length and the sillage is not bad for the first few hours. I get several hours in longevity and well the price for this fragrance made my wallet happy. lol

Big thumbs up, a very lovely scent!

I have the original moustache and the concentree version.
So I got this cause it was cheap, BN folks were not unhappy with it and to complete the collection.
It is a typical Middle Eastern houses (Arabian Oud, Rasasi) doing European creation but blended better - Cardamon, iris,rose, norlimbanol, vanilla and musk.
A modern oriental ;)

It smells dense and rich. For the price it is going for $35/125ml I would recommend it - office safe, date safe.
The bottle alone (hefty piece of art) makes it worth it.

Really one of the better designers released in 2018, Moustache EDP smells nothing like the original or any of its offspring and instead smells nearly identical to the YSL exclusive, Tuxedo. But this costs a fraction of the price (one sixth, to be exact), which makes it a real bargain at $35 for a 2.5oz., and even a good deal at $60, which is the higher end of what it sometimes sells for.

Moustache is one of those fragrances that has a lot of notes working together to basically form one big accord which defines the scent. Here, the dominant notes are vanilla, pink pepper, rose, and benzoin. They create a sweet, caramellic accord that's embellished with a subtle and masculine dark rose, adding an element of elegance to the overall composition and making it more than just a sweet, gourmand for men. The accord smells a little bit like the opening of Thierry Mugler's Pure Malt, but a sort of compressed version, less gourmand, and supported by that dark rose. In turn, it comes across sweet, but also somewhat mature and classy. This distinct and likable dominant accord makes Moustache a mostly linear fragrance, with no significant transitions or changes during its development.

Moustache has a versatile appeal, and can be worn comfortably pretty much any time of the year save for the hottest months, and is a fragrance which is easily dressed up or down. In that regard, you'll get plenty of use out of it. The most common question about Moustache seems to be, "Is it as good as Tuxedo?" I would have to say, yes, more or less. While the notes in Tuxedo seem a bit more defined and rich, they're only very slightly so, and you only notice upon very close, careful inspection. Moustache can feel a bit more plasticky and synthetic at times, but again, it's nothing obvious, and 95% of people out there wouldn't notice the difference. Also, Moustache may be brighter, with less of a noticeable dark patchouli in the base, but not by much. Projection is good and longevity is superb. I actually put Moustache on my arm yesterday and I can still smell it lightly on my arm 24 hours later. The patchouli in Moustache seems negligent at first, but it comes out and has some presence after about 10 or 12 hours, which is fine with me.

Overall rating, 8.7/10, just a smidgen lower than what I gave Tuxedo, and if I were to take price into account it could certainly be a 9. Sample this if you can, though I also recommend it highly as a blind buy. Moustache is now available in the U.S. all over eBay, and at a few select online discounters.

I started off sampling Moustache EdP on its own but quickly realized it reminded me of something else I had smelled recently. After some research, YSL Tuxedo seems to be the main direct comparison, and I agree after smelling them both side-by-side.

The opening is very close to YSL Tuxedo, both being a smooth-balsamic and then vanilla scent mixed with something kinda dirty and sexy, like leather or booze (think aspects of Fahrenheit dirty or even Memo leathers). Moustache EdP feels more masculine than Tuxedo, not as unisex. It also has a heavier, very dressed-up feel, which makes sense being compared to something called “Tuxedo”.

Deeper into the drydown, Moustache EdP can't keep up with the projection I get from Tuxedo but it still does just fine. Longevity was in the 9 hour range.
