A Brittle Prize Left Out In The Cold
Black Gives Way to Blue. A Way. A road, a path, a way of being, thinking, and living life. Blue is the clarity of the sapphire glass, linear style, soft shapes, bold colors. The bottle is promising, a silvery aluminum shell covers the blue crystal. Trussardi A Way for him combines a quite rich background with a fresh watery odor and sweet fruity taste. It is full of contrast, playful by nature, fresh and fruity in the beginning, woody and oriental in the ending. I found this concoction as a sort of resistance to some of the most recent market trends, such as Invictus, Eros, Bottled, Only the Brave, etc. Therefore, it is undoubtedly a modern fragrance, while it remains more polished than its rivals, maybe reflecting the Trussardi sign. No matter what the hype, Trussardi A Way has a way with me.

Before jumping to the scent, let me reveal a bit about the perfumer. Alexandra Kosinski, the nose behind A Way for him, is inspired by painters such as Modigliani and Klimt and favors vanilla and animalic notes. Alexandra's portfolio includes three Trussardi colognes: 'My Land,' Blue Land,' and 'A Way for him.'

The perfume greets you with a shimmering seduction of Hesperides. The roster lists three citrus notes, outstanding bittersweet grapefruit that I get in my face, and then lemon and bergamot, which seat in the background. The former adds a touch of sourness; the latter makes the opening creamy and powdery. The overall aroma is on par with a few ZARA fresh colognes I own, and perhaps other popular designer fragrances out there. Although it is nothing disruptive, still, it is pleasant, agreeable, crisp, and zesty.

People with a trained nose will get a sweet and fruity note from the very beginning. That is the apple, a Granny Smith kind I would say, with a tart, acidic, yet subtly sweet flavor. Granny Smith is one of the rather sour apples slightly evocative of red berries and citrus fruit. Some people even get light notes of marzipan or almond, which are all perceivable in the heart of A Way. The fruity apple and interesting airy, or sunny, or aquatic notes in the form of aldehydes make the rest of the heart. Not a marine, salty, or seaweed-like smell you could meet in Aqua by Bvlgari, but more tantamount to a slight summer breeze.

The superb luscious vanilla, with a bit of dark yet renovated patchouli, and a handful of blonde woods, cashmeran I would bet, give the cologne an oriental and woody finish, thus creating a lovely, sweetish, and fruity blend. I could swear there is a tad of mild leather at the dry down. But overall performance is more fruity and crispy. Vanilla note above woods and fruit is just perfect.

I found it as the right solution for spring daytime and summer nights out since it seems to perfectly balance fruity freshness with a slight powder undertone for casual moments and to go to the office. Maybe, it will not stand out from the crowd, but for sure it is much more refined and subtle, for a narrower circle of gentleman scent. Both sillage and longevity are average, a few hours of life before getting a skin scent. It is miserably underrated. I think this fragrance offers much more to it than meets the eye. It's a neat, contemporaneous formula for youthful spirits that could seem generic at the first sniff, but shines while wearing. I find it very pleasing and chic. Not intimidating, but in a distinct, amusing way.

Adventure at night
I got this fragrance as a gift and had no expectations, because I didn't know the fragrance. Despite the bad reviews I have to say that I like the scent (at night) very much.

It looks sweet but at the same time fruity and fresh. As if Xerjoff - Comandante had got a sweet boy, who lacks some maturity and naturalness. I was already addressed several times (positively) by women and men, which I carry then for a smell.

Conclusion: A nice change - some like it, others hate it. Try it!
