The company says:
Peppery effervescence riffs with the gentle and aromatic lavender. Contrasting notes built upon a beating floral heart. Warmed up with Tolu balm, the Iris heart plays a solo, full of strength and delicacy played out with a masculine pitch. The base echoes with woody patchouli and the sensuality of black vanilla. Oriental and addictive. A rhythmic scent to accompany you through the night.

Latest Reviews of Gentleman Eau de Parfum
The opening on my skin smells of a soft bergamot and spicy pepper that's been purely refined.you can automatically detect that beautiful orris note.you get the soft elegance of the orris then hit with that creamy masculine vanilla.the real underrated hero of this fragrance is patchouli. very wonderfully blended with the vanilla to give this orris and pepper combo some sweetness.you don't find any girls that dislike it.not monster sillage but it certainly has enough to leave a trail that other people will pick up on as you walk past.
No, this strikes me as a retro-futuristic fougere, reimagining Caron pour Un Homme's vanilla base into something balsamic and resinous. A streamlined, sleek, synthetic lavender mingles with the orris, while a heap of dry, peppery spices add a smokiness.
It's the perfect scent to wear while pondering whether or not androids dream of electric sheep.
The drydown adds quite an intense iris, which is a tad darker, smooth, a bit sweeter, and a good rendering of this floral. This is the stage where reminiscences of more recent samplings of Dior Homme come to mind.
Some whiffs of oleander and very briefly of katsura tree leaves appear transiently. Then a balsamic undertone, a Tolu notes leads into the next stage of the development.
The base adds a smooth patchouli, which misses any harsh or rough edges. This smoothness is enhanced by the addition of a pleasant vanilla impression, which is more and the restrained side and never really loud or cloying.
I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.
Quite a nice take on a not-so-sweet floral approach, this scent fr cooler spring days is not without an original touch. Unfortunately, some notes are rather generic. Overall 2.75.5
In this parfum version, there is pretty much nothing of interest going on. The opening is frankly a mess of artificial woods, a touch of pepper, and that iris note. In fact it does dry down quite nicely with a little vanillic accord, but it provides nothing of note along the way. Not bad, but of little aesthetic value.
sort of blah
