Following your input on Herrera, I thought I'd
check it's ingredients. And, as is often the case,
different sites list different ingredients for a
particular scent. Many sites describe Herrera as
containing "fresh citrus, tobacco, musk and amber",
...... which I can sort of go along with.

Basenotes has Herrera having,
Head: Fern, Clove,Lavender
Heart: Amber,Tobacco,Geranium
Base: Sandalwood,Cedarwood,Musk
.....which I can also go along with, but it has no
mention of anything citrus.

However OsMoz claims the following ingredients,
Top note : Bergamot, Lemon, Lavender, Petitgrain
Middle note : Fir, Rose, Geranium, Carnation
Base note : Cedar, Sandal, Oakmoss, Musk
.......which has no mention of tobacco or amber, but does
have the citrusy Bergamot, Petitgrain and Lemon.

My nose isn't good enough to distinguish the individual ingredients.
Any opinions as to which is the most accurate? (Well, I think
we know Grant's answer)

Renato:

Hererra for men contains a heady mix of carnation which give the spiciness to
the middle notes. It also has notes white flowers such as jasmine and
gardenia too

Herrera for Men is one of the my prefered EdT.

The fragrance description is:

Fresh citrus aromatic on the top note (Bergamote, Neroli and Petitgrain,
lemon, lavender, Sage...)

Spicy green pepper, clove, floral geranium and fresh jasmin on the Heart.

Woody (natural Sandalwood), Cedarwood notes like a cigar box, dry ambery
notes and one special and original tobaco note on the Base.

Very sensual and atractive musk accord with skin long lasting effect and
diffusion.

Basenotes + OsMoz have the complet description.

The Carnation like a flower is not in HFM, the clove spice note can give
this effect.

I must have missed this thread earlier.

I'm happy to say they are both likely to be correct. Fragrance Notes
are a difficult area-- Fragrances can contain hundreds of notes, but
fragrance houses will normally mention 10-20 of the most prominent
ones.

Sometimes the houses can't decide what the notes are: As a case in
point, I have three separate info packs about Cool Water from
Davidoff/Lancaster. One from the early nineties, just after CW's UK
launch. One from a Davidoff info-pack which I received after the
launch of Goodlife in the UK. The last I received from Coty USA,
which they sent along with their presspack of COTY001, the recent
unisex fragrance-- although many of the ingrdients were the same-
none of the sets of notes were identical!!!!

Thanks very much for that Grant. The question of the different
ingredient listings had been puzzling me for some time. You've
clarified matters greatly.
