Description

Whereas AE opens with green-woody notes and then drops into aldehydes and stays green, A900 opens with a bright green blast and then settles into a rose surrounded by those fresh woody-herbal notes. But the Internet purchase sadly lacks the aroma that people / relatives have come to expect when I wear it. It's also, incidentally, the scent that finally allowed me to understand the appeal of masculine floral fragrances. Top notes are Coriander, Green Notes, Brazilian Rosewood, Bergamot and Lemon; middle notes are Rose, Carnation, Geranium, Lily-of-the-Valley, Jasmine and Orris Root; base notes are Oakmoss, Civet, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood and Amber. Those were the days when men in business and science wore dark brown suits and glasses, and of course they smoked.

Having said this, sadly not aware yet about more reliable, trustworthy purchasing sources for either versions of this very scent. Entertainers, athletes, Formula One drivers, and others had let their hair grow and were wearing more denim, leading to such oxymoronic terms as "rich hippie," "jet-set hippie," "playboy hippie," etc. It then moves onto a floral garden blend of roses, carnation, lily-of-the-valley, geranium with a hint orris root.

My initial disappointment arose from trying to discover more layers, some kind of counterbalance, some woodiness, spiciness, musky or resinous base. I don't get any real drop off in quality of ingredients or massive change in the quality of the drydown; any perceived differences maybe down more to the age of the older bottle against the freshness of the newer one. Recently I became aware of Clinique Aromatic Elixirs and heard rumors that it was darn close to the original. After a few minutes, the moist and impatient rose note emerges and dominates the entire composition. Much as I love the vintage and prefer its evocative bottle, I think the current version although smoother is still excellent and perhaps even the better of the two.

Not forgetting your hair with the greatest of all when it comes to hair products: L'Oréal Professionnel, Kérastase or Schwarzkopf. Foundation, mascara, lipstick, nail polish, we think of everything to make you shine during the day and evening!The initial application of Aramis 900 seems strong and harsh at first, but it dries down and softens immensely. I’ll be recommending solid cologne to my friends, a much better option than traditional aftershaves.

But the star of the opening is really the richly elegant rose note, which is bolstered by carnation. The same age-group who scoops up Bleu de Chanel, Aventus, or whatever the latest, greatest flavor of the day happens to be. the spicy dry woody dustyness grounds this scent in the earth, and along with some fresh greenery ensures it's masculine. I think of aramis 900 as the sexy, mature but less tidy cousin of "habit rouge" (rose) and romantic brother of "KOUROS" (animalic side).Also, discover our perfume and perfume boxes for less expensive gifts for Christmas or Mother's Day. Nowadays that most perfumes have this ethereal unisex character A900 has gained a new position and has something different to offer.

Trigger warning to formulation nerds: it confounds me why there's so much talk of this (and other Aramis Gentleman's Collection relaunch versions) are "shadows of their former selves. When I was in high school, one of my teachers was part owner of the family owned florist in our small town. Anyone can make you look up by being loud and boorish, but it takes a cut above to get that second glance. A lush bouquet (alternatively: men's décolleté) of slightly withered flowers, but which thereby actually develop more Bumms (attention inappropriate language) and which in combination with civet (at least in the vintage version) make a great fragrance. I'm looking at the longevity and sillage review graphs for Aramis 900 and wondering if they are for an older formulation?

Please note that this service might transfer the data outside of the EU/EEA and to a country without the required data protection standards. I'd even argue that certain turned bottles may seem a bit more animalic because of whatever chemical degradation had done to the bases: it's just a theory. Sadly it has been reformulated a couple of years ago and the magic has gone; try it every once in a while again, to be disappointed every time. About that civet: Its not fecal, exactly, but there is an animalic hint which actually blends well with the oak moss and green accords.
