About this deal

Being honest in my reviews, I tend to lean toward the emotional aspect of the fragrance without getting too technical about the breakdown and accords.

I recently acquired a bottle a couple of months ago (I did have an original bottle back in the 80's that got lost the. The musk is the most noticeable opening note, a dirty musk with an animalic touch; the citrus notes blend themselves into a lemony accord which is sharp and fresh. Modern production is still a mature scent, but without its key ingredients to balance it out, becomes very nondescript, which the original was already in danger of becoming by virtue of its formulaic design. I first smelled it in 1985 when I bought a bottle of Ralph Lauren's Monogram which had just come out.The 'top' notes do dominate, and perhaps that's its downfall, but to be fair that's the case with most citrus perfumes. Finally, the base notes of patchouli, vetiver, and sandalwood provide a well-rounded foundation, evoking a sense of mystery and intrigue.

are becoming more and more the same, this will give you a lot of attention as it is rare for fragrances nowadays to feature notes like cedar, lavender, coriander etc. Interestingly, I bought this instead of Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino after spraying a wrist with each and comparing. I used to own a huge collection of natural essential oils and this frag is clearly based on pure extracts. If you're a fan of 4711 Eau de Cologne, Dior Eau Sauvage, Azzaro Pour Homme, or Aramis Tuscany Per Uomo, you might enjoy Armani Eau Pour Homme. a tart green lemony citrus fragrance for the most part, slight floral and spice coming in behind it.It moved away from the stonking overblown 'fumes of the eighties, and replaced them with a hitherto obsolete style of citrus, mossy woods and musk. This seems to project better on me than the original did even though I cannot imagine that this is a better projecting fragrance than the 1984 original formulation for most people, may just be my skin chemistry. Being a fan of potent frags like Dior's Fahrenheit and Givenchy's original Insense (in effect an eau de parfum), I was aware of the need to use more sprays that I'm accustomed to. com perfumes magazine - All Rights Reserved - do not copy anything without prior written permission.

This rivals Chanel Eau de Cologne on shelves today, or Frederic Malle Cologne Indelible, but then adds moss to the base to give an added dimension, a luxurious velvet backdrop to the Eau de Cologne.

It is lightly spicy, still citrus and refined with the characteristic woods, though the florals are noticeably absent.

Considering the tester couldn't be older than a couple of months, I'd recommend you keep this in a cool dark place just to be sure. It opens up with like citrusy- soapy then it moves to spicy aromatic heart with a classic base of patchouli, woods and oakmoss. Dry cedar and grassy vetiver accompany the telltale oakmoss bite of Armani Eau Pour Homme's finish, while sandalwood and patchouli act in the base much like the herbs and neroli do in the heart, smoothing out the rough edges. From what I can tell from memory, this one is more citric and fresh than the 1980s version, but that's the way most classic fragrances have gone. we didn't care about performance, because we splashed this on our faces and neck after a nice shave.You can forget about getting anywhere close to this level with cheapies such as Victor or Aqua di Selva. Tried it last week, hoping to test the new version and revive my rather distant memories of the old one.
