A fragrance like a shoe
since this is my first review, I would like to ask you to be lenient.
This perfume lives up to its name. With this I do not want to say at all that the fragrance smells like leather or worn shoe.
It is rather the association and appearance which the perfume and the men's shoe have in common - the classic gentleman.
Elegant, classic, versatil, unobtrusive and yet striking.
But how can an unobtrusive grapefruit, pepper and wood scented perfume yet be so striking? Just by its timeless elegance, which is rarely found today.
An elegance as they can only radiate a gentleman.
A fragrance that you simply notice when entering a room. Even if he has no ambitions to be loud and to be the center of attention, you can not overlook this fragrance. By class, charm and its unobtrusive presence one perceives this fragrance inevitably with great interest.
Anyone who has ever had the pleasure to meet and talk with a true gentleman, knows what I'm talking about. His style, exuding class and elegance, and his character, full of charm and depth, inevitably entice one to converse at length with the gentleman in question and learn more about him and his life.
This is precisely what distinguishes this wonderful fragrance by Roberto Ugolini.
When I spray on Oxford I immediately notice notes of grapefruit and pepper. The longer I wear it on my skin, the more woody and resinous notes come out. After about 5 hours, the scent becomes softer and softer and I notice the light scent of vanilla and earthy patchouli.
This fragrance can definitely not be called a sillage monster. But this would also be completely out of place in my eyes and would not do justice to a gentleman, as I have described him.
Some people only recommend Oxford to 30-year-olds and upwards. To the whole I would like to contradict. It is a fragrance like a shoe. Wearable for everyone, if it is combined appropriately. Whether leisure, office or dinner; this fragrance is wearable in every situation and incredibly versatil. Who wears this fragrance, remains through unmistakable style in memory.
Stylish and good-smelling greetings,
