Traditional orange with bergamot and nutmeg with a geranium-flower note added in. The is some petitgrain in the background at times.
Later on the nutmeg takes centre stage in a pleasant way, but its spiciness is mellowed by the addition of an ylang-ylang; the latter is not very sweet and not very creamy; is is a lighter version.
The base adds more accoutrements of classic scents; mainly wood notes. There is cedar present mainly, a touch of sandalwood too at times, and a bit of oakmoss in the older versions. Then this is followed by a bit of musk that overall results in a classic soapy English barbershop scent.
I get moderate sillage, good projection, and a reasonable longevity of about four to five hours.
A great classic English Gentleman's scent. The grooming products, including the soaps, are delightful. 3.5/5
