It has some aromatic notes that refer to Drakar Noir and the like, but... it doesn't have much to do with this one. In any case, one could say that Mr. De Deus and Ms. Kato were inspired by it but, well done, they came up with a result that, by far, is quite more original than others of the type - the citrus top note is evident at first sniff, with the addition of pitanga, a hesperidic note that is quite particular for its tropical accent.

Beyond this, I cannot get any oak or patchouli in the middle notes because of the persistency of the citric notes, sharp tones lingering in the base notes for the rest of the journey. There are some woody accords that come to the fore in the base notes, but, as in the middle notes, they are limited by the top notes.

Some critics speak of references to releases of the 1990s for the original version, perhaps because of similarities with Drakar Noir, but this intense version plays in its own league.

While the blend feels mature, it does not smell dated. In that sense, I think it's a good alternative for those looking for an updated and more original version of what was a hit twenty-something years ago.

Excellent aromatic fougere in the Azzarro cannon. Good longevity, old school, virile and satisfying.
A good deal in Brazil.
