Tuxedo, my signature scent
I visited my sister in Switzerland this summer and we made a day trip to Zurich. Unfortunately the weather didn't play along and we ended up in a fragrance shop. My sister wanted to show me her favourite scent. It was Tuxedo. We sprayed a little Tuxedo on our wrist and asked for the price. I was shocked to hear it was 360 CHF. A proud price. But Tuxedo is not a fragrance you can easily forget and after a few months I found it cheaper in a smaller bottle and bought it. It is the most expensive fragrance I have ever bought and owned. The fragrance has a fresh opening with a little spice and a nice floral touch. I like very much that the ingredients are balanced. The fragrance is rather unisex for me. With men I find it elegant and with women very charming. For me the most refined and luxurious YSL fragrance. I can wear it all day, it gives me good mood and self-confidence. I'm quoting my sister's words, "When you wear Tuxedo, you're definitely remembered."

Tuxedo - a fragrance that lives up to its name
Foreword
I must confess that I no longer had great expectations of the Yves Saint Laurent brand. In recent years, in my opinion, the focus has been on flankers and mass-compatible, boring perfumes that have been planned down to the last detail and from which I could no longer derive anything. Until now I didn't know the Private Collection, but that was about to change. Through a lovely perfume I got a sample of velours and yesterday I had the chance to test Cuir and finally Tuxedo. The latter then wandered to a proud price in the shopping bag.

The fragrance, shelf life & Sillage
First of all: Le Vestiare(the wardrobe) Tuxedo lives up to its name as the headline already says. In my opinion his full potential will only be reached with the right outfit, which is certainly due to the prominent violet note at the beginning, which reminds me of a freshly ironed shirt like in Arsen Lupin Dandy. This is neatly underlaid with a britzelnden pepper note. A certain slightly fresh flower note also resonates. Bergamot and coriander, however, I do not perceive. Neither does the listed rose, which with its frequent soapy nature usually doesn't appeal to me either. Over time, the vanilla note also sparkles, giving the whole construct a certain sweetness without the fragrance drifting away. For me, the heart note is a triad of violets, vanilla and pepper, which is the main accompaniment to the perfume. The vanilla is also the base, patchouli & ambergris are rather discreet and give the whole thing no earthy but at best a slightly chocolaty, balsamic touch.
The Sillage is present in the first 2-3 hours, but not overloaded, as it belongs to a suitable occasion in the restaurant, or more sophisticated celebration. After that he gets pretty close, which doesn't have to be bad under the circumstances.
After 6-7 hours the spell is gone with me then.

The presentation
The bottle and the OVP are kept relatively simple. A lightly embossed cardboard, whereby the logo only seems to be glued on. The lid has a good grip due to the ribbing and closes very easily due to the magnet. The atomizer also does its job perfectly and distributes the amount evenly from a distance of 30 cm. Altogether the presentation for me is very solid, but also not outstanding.

Conclusion
Why the Tuxedo made it into my collection?
For me he radiates style and elegance, is never too loud but still present and violets seem to have become very rare in men's fragrances. In addition, the combination closes the gap in my collection which I would have liked to have closed with the Arsen Lupin Dandy. In my opinion it is definitely worth a test.

The gentleman in Paris!
It's Friday evening on a late summer autumn day in Paris. The increasingly fading summer rays are rearing up once more before they take their leave in grand style with the longing for warmth into the melancholy of darkness. The colors of autumn fight for attention, seeking the most beautiful reflection of their colors in the reflections of the puddles. The strains of the week have been put aside and the protagonist walks with sure footing and almost challenging confidence with his companion through the alleys of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. His stylishly tailored suit fits snugly under his single-breasted cashmere wool coat and harmonizes effortlessly with his companion's black sheath dress, whose red bow can only be glimpsed beneath the wrap-around coat. The heel of her pumps clacks in unison with the onset of drizzle and the ever-increasing shrieks of the Seine, which is struggling to drop the autumnal winds. Arriving at their destination, they both sit down at the large picture window of the 18th century designed hotel bar, which promises a breathtaking view of the Louvre. They catch a glimpse of the last golden rays of the sun, which takes up the entire forecourt in a play of colour with the majestic pyramid, breathlessly dwarfing the surrounding buildings. The protagonist orders himself a soft cognac and his companion a Bordeaux and both let the evening end in a dignified atmosphere.

That's more or less how I would imagine an ideal scenario for this fragrance :) To me, Tuxedo exudes an incredibly graceful subtlety that I struggle to explain. The fragrance concept itself is perceptible in many other fragrances but the composition of the individual notes harmonizes so well that it triggers a longing in me for a situation that is otherwise rather rare. The fragrance has a wonderfully spicy-sweet opening that almost wants to be quaffable, but then lets it be. The woody note of patchouli complements the sweet vanilla and powdery, somewhat tart rose very harmoniously. The peppery note, which is still strengthened by the violet leaf, gives the fragrance a little more contrast to the vanilla and the rose.

Basically, I would say that the fragrance can be worn almost at any time of year, but m.E. rather in the colder months comes into its own. He is definitely one of the fragrances that can enhance your own perception, but absolutely must also fit one. I imagine a person over 30 who stands firmly in life and scores with understatement and not with obscenities. To the "Power" and "Beast" - generation, which wants to stand out by obtrusive sillage and even more obtrusive pose, he certainly does not fit.

All in all, one of the best YSL fragrances and certainly one of the fragrances that I like the most. Something problematic I find the durability, which unfortunately does not do justice to this great fragrance.

Thank you, Oslo!
A rainy, windy late September day in Oslo. We had a difficult negotiation with a customer and are waiting in the conference room for our shuttle to the airport. I need to stretch my legs a little and sign off with my colleague, saying: "Meet me at the station in half an hour! See you soon." So I stroll past the colorful stores on Karl-Johans-Strasse towards the central station, taking in the city's humid breeze. A perfumery is advertising the new YSL - why not take a quick sniff of a few fragrances?

And then, as I stroll through the rows of individual vendors at the YSL stand, Tuxedo catches my eye. A fragrance that enchanted me many years ago and which I thought no longer existed. So I quickly applied 2-3 sprays to my skin and yes, the old memories were there. A citrusy opening followed by spicy and floral notes. Not too sweet and pleasantly coordinated! Then you get a cuddly vanilla-amber veil with enough patchouli. An earthy and woody balance to the sweet floral notes helps you feel calm, relaxed and grounded.

Even hours later and back at home, this timeless, spicy licorice fragrance envelops me. A masterpiece for any weather and any situation. A fragrance that accompanies and does not want to lead, but always discreetly attracts attention around you.

And at the end of the day, I was really happy to have treated myself to a 75ml bottle, for the love of old memories and hopefully for new, future experiences.

Thank you, Oslo!

Something to strive for..
I was on the fence trying this one, mostly due to the hype surrounding it. Finally gave in and sampled it in a local store here in Copenhagen. It was not love at first sniff at all, we had to find our compromises and accept each others differences.

After a few wearings I started to understand this wonderful scent better.

It is not loud by any means, in fact it´s more of a silent statement. It leans slightly masculine and is a fragrance for the confident and more mature man, it represent everything I aspire and therefore it has become a somewhat signature scent for me.

It makes me strive towards the man I wish to be, it reminds me that class and style is not being as loud as possible, it is completely it´s own and doesn´t compromise with that.

Stunning fragrance.

This is a 10/10. I have nothing similar to this in my collection, that's awesome. I love the ozonic notes. A must-have in my eyes!
