In the mid-nineties, Courrèges launched 'Niagara', a men's fragrance that already seemed a little out of date, as it was more reminiscent of the fragrance two decades earlier. This one spoiled the nose with citrus-mild herbal green and tender conifer notes, and is traded meanwhile at moon prices.
Esprit Libre' by the glove maker Antonio Visconti knows how to caress the nose with something similar However, I do not want to assume an absolute equality of the two fragrances, but only a direct comparability. And as a substitute, the Italian free spirit might also have come into question. But this is prevented by its early setting and low distribution alone.

It begins with similarly bittersweet citrus notes, from this lively green-yellow melange only the characteristic lemongrass can be clearly smelled, which fortunately does not give rise to thoughts of Asian street cuisine here. These are soon overlaid with herbs, especially thyme, but certainly others besides. And as with Niagara, although less pronounced, the light medium green changes over conifer needles to a deep shimmering dark green. The whole is bedded on a base of fluffy, softly scratchy moss, which provides a light soap touch throughout, in spite of all natural appearance.

Ultimately, the focus has shifted from conifers to herbs, the fragrance appears somewhat lighter and more natural. And above all, it is just as dead
In any case, pardon my English, I find this premature attitude a mess.
However, the whole brand does not seem to exist anymore, more information can only be found in the blog of ALzD, who probably ran the brand for a while.
Maybe (hopefully) somebody will come up with the idea of spanning a green arch from citrus over herb to mossy coniferous forest.


On my not very compact watch list there are a lot of things that I don't really expect to find their way under my nose - because I've decided to buy only with the greatest of complications or because of similar obstacles. I also counted Visconti's free spirit among them, but a generous donor helped me to this joyful surprise - for this again most obliging thanks, dear Serge!
