The alternative with more corners and edges.
Those who love the great "Reflection Man" from Amouage will not be completely happy with this one, the "Hartley". But if you "only" like the great "Reflection Man" from Amouage, who demands a few more rough edges from him, you will find your grail with "Hartley" again.

"Hartley" starts just like "Reflection Man" despite other scent pyramids. I can't see any differences in the top note. You have to wait a few minutes, because then the first differences become obvious. There are no soft flowers and no subtle iris. Instead, we are dealing with lavender ... lots of lavender. This one captivates with a herbaceous, occasionally scratchy appearance, reminding me of typical fougère scents. It brings those nooks and crannies into the composition that many a "Reflection Man" might wish for. In the background there is also a light citric note that combines with the rather dominant lavender and the woods that come later. In the end you almost get a fougère with the DNA of the public's favourite from Amouage - less gentle, for some perhaps more mature, with scratchy barbershop lavender, without great floral quality. Which of the two candidates you choose in the end is of course up to you

Better than I hoped
Oh dear, comment numero uno. For a long time I have been thinking about which fragrance I will dedicate my commentary premiere to. Now it is this one.

To get back at you... Before the Hartley, I already owned the R.M. I thought it was great except for the fact that it seemed very linear. I often had the feeling of an olfactory "tinitus" on warmer days, because the same scents dominated from beginning to end.

Then I got a package from the souk with a sample of the said Hartley and was immediately hooked. One week later I contacted the same perfume and bought a bottle with the words "I MUST have that" :-D

I didn't want to like him better than the R.M. At first. The hype was too big compared to the relatively unknown Hartley. This is totally stupid, I know...
In the end, Hartley comes across as much rounder. The opening is much more sparkling and he develops a woodier character than RM. Parallels are definitely there; a clone? No!
I also find the RM more synthetic, even though Hartley is said to have a certain dose of it here. The said "tinnitus" never occurs here.

When you least expect it... Hartley has become one of my absolute favorites and that although I thought at the beginning, he will surely move on soon. I have the RM ... How far I was wrong! RM is history now :D

I can only warmly recommend this masterpiece to everyone! Give him a chance or two. I, too, had to be taught better first!

Similarity to Reflection Man. Better?
I was really curious about Hartley, because many people thought he smells similar to Reflection Man.

I don't want to write much about the fragrance process, there have already been very relevant reports.

It starts off rather fresh and flowery. As it progresses it becomes creamier and more floral, very balanced. In the end it becomes a bit woody, but the creamy and floral nuances remain.
Sandalwood, lavender and neroli - even if not specified, the main notes play for me.

I must honestly say that the difference to RM is extremely small. The two are so identical, only in the top note they differ a little bit. The top note is a bit similar to the vintage version, but from the middle note on it becomes very identical to the current RM.

For me, Hartley is a beautiful fragrance that fits perfectly to elegant performances and surrounds you naturally with a lot of level and class.
Nevertheless, I will stay with the RM. Why?
For me, the bottle is far more beautiful and appealing, the brand simply polarizes more, the durability and projection is better, the availability is more given and the fragrance itself is more luxurious or rather more powerful, braver and more beautiful.

Hartley is somewhat softer, rounder and more balanced, but this is more reserved.

I love this unusual and elegant RM and no perfume can copy the quality of RM's perfume.

Especially since the price of RM is often better than that of Hartley - Notino, Perfume Centre etc...

If we leave out RM now, Hartley is an extremely beautiful and great fragrance that would be my first choice.

The durability is very good with more than 10 hours, but will become skin-near faster than the RM
Means, for 6 hours well perceptible.

Conclusion: Great fragrance with acceptable shelf life and qualitatively balanced scent character.

Best regards

Always stay supple
At Mazzolari, it seems that people like to be inspired by other brands, because with Nero, the Italians have already launched a fragrance very similar to Aventus, and at Hartley, the comparison with Reflection Man is definitely obvious. Both have something light, powdery, sweet and woody about them - nevertheless the differences are already very clear to me.

Due to the strong presence of Neroli, the Amouage has a soapy facet that Hartley does not have. But the latter seems to me to be much warmer and woodier. While the powdery side of Reflection Man comes from the iris, lavender is responsible for it in Hartley. I don't perceive the fragrance as really citric, because it actually starts immediately with the floral-spicy heart note and the soft woods. I can't detect any great change - only the sweetish base note becomes (unfortunately) stronger with time and I think I can perceive vanilla as well
Hartley has a very warm, sunny character and especially on slightly warmer spring and autumn days it really comes alive and is accordingly persevering. Since I'm not a big fan of sweet fragrances, I sold my bottle, but I don't find the base gourmand. However, Hartley is definitely not suitable for midsummer. All in all, it appears round and well balanced - only those who prefer perfumes with rough edges will definitely find it too soft.

Comparisons are unhappy
Supposedly says Confucius ;P

Let's see if he's right...

And "Hartley" by Mazzolari, who are best known to me for their expensive Aventus copy "Nero", reminds you of many things you would like to compare him with
When I bought the sample of it, I probably also already read about the comparisons with "Reflection Man", or rather knew about it.
However, he fell into oblivion with me, was probably another part of this Souk order my main focus.

Now I came across him again, and luckily I remembered that I already have a sample.

From the context of the comments here, I immediately notice the similarity to Reflection Man. As the others say, a little softer, "more open", sweeter, more lovely, more compatible. But not more specifically than Reflection Man, on the contrary, for me the appearance is a little more familiar
Had I not known RM, I might have thought he was actually a "Le Male" clone. Though he smells more like a clone of LeMale than LeMale himself. Maybe a bit in the direction of "Sexy Boy" by Jeanne Arthes (2004).

But in a good way. better... if that makes sense. Wertiger
When I let my nose completely sink into the skin, it works like a mixture 70% RM 30% Le Male.
Hartley also reminds me of Liquid Gold, or Gaultier^2, through this pseudo-Amberian "powder", if you know what I mean...

Anyway, good smell, nothing wrong with it. And a lot of right, too...

For me personally, "Le Male" or "Reflection Man" polarize more in one direction, which appeals to me more. So I find myself in my headliner, comparisons make me unhappy, or, also happy because I know what I have in my sweethearts. :)

But if you find yourself feeling that RM is too smoky / spicy or Le Male is too commercial, one-dimensional, "Hartley" could be the bringer of the sailor horizon for you!

First 10 min = reflection man
After that = a little bit more cremy, warm, citric
Performance = a bit better

Very similar to Reflection man, and pretty well made too. Considering the price of Amouage, this is a very good value/alternative
