Description

Along with Kouros and Antaeus is the best masculine expression of what a perfume should be, have and projects towards others. I remember ad a young girl, my dad wearing this as his signature scent. All his suits etc smelled of it. I loved the smell. The type of scent is quite different from modern counterparts, thus it feels refreshing and almost unique. PROJECTION: 2/10. Low. The opening’s projection is outstanding, but it plummets to a week less than 2 feet around the wearer. Don't believe in innocent purposes with Aramis - this fragrance has carnal intentions. As it begins to dry, the aroma of heavily worn suede emerges, mainly through the amazingly creamy and smoky accord of the leather constituent components. Dare I suggest they are castoreum, juniper and birch tar? The base notes join forces with the initial cumin note as if they were the big, strong arms of a gigantic father made of leather, delivering us a bear hug.

This was my grandfather’s fragrance. He was my hero. A real life hero that I got to grow up with. A man that, for me, no one can ever compare to. A man nonetheless.

The opening is a pleasant masculine herbal medley that is somewhat soapy and reminiscent of Jaguar for Men (green), only much smoother and less screechy than the Jaguar. The basil and wormwood are the prominant notes. It was much stronger then. The kind of thing where you walk into a club full of people and cigarette smoke, and everybody turns their head, knowing you're wearing Aramis. OK, I'm exaggerating a slight bit, but it was quite overpowering. And smelled better than now. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application. have a non-linear, smell-good fragrance that continues to develop throughout its wear time, and might even get you a smile or two (so long as you DO NOT overspray).

But Aramis shifts a bit more towards the drydown. The oakmoss and patchouli start getting more noticeable, it becomes woodier, and the resins and animalic notes become stronger and more sensual. At this point, smelling it on the right person, it’s sex in a bottle. Unfortunately, Estée Lauder have announced that they will discontinue Aramis from 2023. And, starting with the earliest edition in 1966 all the way up to 2019, it will be a big loss to the industry and lovers of the brand.

That is so unfortunate but I hope they can find a way to fix this issue in their future batches. The current state of Aramis is pleasant just like before and you will get enjoyment from it for sure, you just need to spray more frequently and I suggest that you apply it on your clothes as the body heat will make it go base much sooner. Some month ago a potent cold took away about half of my olfactory sense. The only scents able to penetrate the olfactory fog are for the time garlic, onion, perfumes and different spices. And cheese. As long as it has been around, it is going to be very old school feeling. However, I believe you can pull it off even if you're in your late 20s. Sharp, bracing, herbal, resinous, skanky opening. Like Kouros without the sweet musky incense. Sharp. Dry. Dusty, woody, mossy, earthy. Blended so smoothly, so natural. The drydown is beyond gorgeous. So complex without becoming mud. The sharpness lasts for a long time, which always impresses me.

The beauty of the fragrance is in the base, where patchouli, oak moss, cedar wood as well as tobacco. I wear this for every Christmas week. It reminds me of my Papa and a time of year when my family gathered.

Aramis came down with the gods from Mt. Olympus. I love it through and through, from the strong, overwhelmingly masculine opening to the softer wafting drydown, it's all there: citrus, flowers, leather, amber. In 1980 I overheard two girls in the corridor talking about Aramis. They both agreed, if a man wears this, it is just like, wow, swoon, you've got me!! I secretly went straight to the nearest department store and bought a bottle. I loved it. It worked. I'm still married to one of those two girls. It became my signature scent for the next 30+ years. I was going through a drawer today and found a sample bottle of this that I had bought through Surrender To Chance. I don't quite know what possessed me to buy a sample bottle of this, maybe this was something my mother suggested I take a look at, but I'm certainly glad I bought a sample over buying a full bottle of it. It's leather, spice, and smoke, with a slight hint of freshness to it... I'm not sure HOW they managed to make that work, but they did. Aramis was created in 1966 and dedicated to men who appreciate tradition and classic, and this is the reason why this perfume is always modern.
