Polo Cosmair meets Lauder for Men gold cap.

Piney oakmoss bomb.

Lucifer EDT 100ml Spray -

Renaissance Fragrances was a company based out of the UK in London and completely unknown to me until recently. The only fragrance I can find by them is this EDT - "Lucifer", which is now long discontinued, and a blind buy for me ($35 for 100ml).

At first sniff, this is a clone in the vein of Polo Green. But thankfully, a vintage Cosmair / Warner Polo Green clone!

The opening is a bit dustier than Polo with a huge whack upside the head of oakmoss. I don't know the year this was produced, but it has to be pre-2001.

Within minutes, the patchouli and tobacco merge into an accord similar to the dry down of Montana Parfum d'Homme with an added coniferous overtone. Wow!

Ultimately, even though I'm reviewing this one as a clone, it still has a personality of its own. I agree with drseid's review completely - why wasn't this on anybody's radar!? It may have been a UK only release and once the company went belly up that was the end of Lucifer.

Lucifer opens with a ton of oakmoss and smooth patchouli, melding with a dry tobacco leaf accord not unlike the one used in Havana and Montana Red Box. The oakmoss and tobacco slightly recede as the perfume progresses to its early heart, leaving the patchouli as the star, with the still significant oakmoss presence coupling with an emerging ashy coniferous green-woody accord similar to the one found in vintage Polo as co-stars through the heart with warm spices featuring nutmeg in support. During the late dry-down, the ashy coniferous accord vacates and the patchouli recedes, leaving the oakmoss and warm spices as co-stars through the finish, with remnants of the patchouli now in support. Projection is excellent, as is longevity at 12 hours on skin.

Lucifer checks all the right boxes for me. It combines elements of vintage Captain Molyneux, vintage original Polo, Balenciaga pour Homme and Havana. As I love all of these and consider them all masterpieces, it goes without saying I consider Lucifer an absolute hidden gem winner that I am finding I love more and more with every wear. I have no idea why this offering didnít sell, but had I sniffed it last century when it was released, I would have bought it without hesitation. I highly recommend this excellent smelling 4.5 to 5 stars out of 5 rated perfume to vintage powerhouse perfume collectors who love oakmoss and patchouli heavy compositions from the 70s and 80s. Great stuff!
