I'm a fan of No. 1, but these annual flankers did little to set themselves apart from the original scent, other than with price. More just collector's pieces in my opinion, which is cool if that's your thing. Just nothing groundbreaking in my opinion.

This review is for the limited edition 15-year anniversary extrait version, as opposed to the EDP that's sold all the time. Honestly, it's quite good.

It's a grand, expensive smelling aldehydic chypre in the style of Chanel No. 5 extrait, Joy, or Amouage Gold Man, with sparkly lemon champagne aldehydes on top of florals on top of a rich creamy mix of iris, sandalwood, and musk. What sets it apart are the citruses on top. Where most of this style of perfumes are content to let a bit of lemon and bergamot do the heavy lifting, Number 1 surrounds them with a full-on fruit basket of oranges, tangerines, and possibly a hint of grapefruit. Meanwhile, the florals center on jasmine and carnation, giving it a very expensive feel for those in the know.

If you're familiar with Gold Man, imagine that with the poop removed and the frankincense toned down to make room for more upfront citrus and florals. The base doesn't quite have the over-the-top richness of No 5 extrait, but it's still really good. As such, it's not exactly original, but extremely well done for fans of this sort of thing. Whether the extrait is worth $1500 a bottle is up to your budget, but it's definitely worth a sniff.
