Etienne Aigner's 1978 release of Super Fragrance for Men is a Super unknown. It's amusing because of not only the chosen name for the scent, but that it's so substantial, so good and only minimal perfumistos have smelled it; let alone heard of it. I consider myself fortunate to have finally obtained this in 2009. Nothing ever made ( that I have come across so far ) smells remotely similar.

I actually had a woman grab me at a Christmas party in 2010 and whisper in my ear as she hugged me. "You smell sooooooo good" !!!! I enjoyed the compliment from this attractive party guest and yes, I smelled damn good. After all, I was wearing Super Fragrance for Men.

Super Fragrance for Men is a warm and bitter masculine
that is dense from the initial spray. The overall tone of is an herbal one, but there's quite a bit more going on than herbs. The combination of Cedar oil, hay and the spices culminate in an atmospheric accord that's tepid and poignant.

Super Fragrance is a strong fragrance, but not deceptively so. Body heat most assuredly kicks this up a notch or two. The concentrations of notes used here are a thing of the past and you can smell the intent the perfumer had for this creation. This was really made to be "Super".

I can imagine Sean Connery wearing this as James Bond and entering a room with Super Fragrance radiating from his skin. You would smell spicy cedar that had been fermenting under a pile of hay. Hints of flowers at an entry level state of decay that must have surely been thrown on top of this heap.

Within an hour or a little less, a well integrated musk appears and the woodiness morphs from gritty to old world elegant. The neat trick about Super Fragrance is that it exudes a busy attitude with the least possible effort. It really is like Bond at the top of his game. Once the drydown commences, the calming oriental notes manifest incrementally. Super France is in no hurry. It's very confident and self assured. In essence, it truly is Super and there's no other way to describe it.

Sillage is magnificent and longevity is as satisfying as you can get. Would Bond leave one of his female cohorts wanting? I should think not. Big thumbs up from Aromi for Aigner's Super Fragrance for Men.
