Carnation, Jasmin, Lily of the Valley, Rose
Amber, Cedar, Moss, Musk, Patchouli, Sandalwood and Vanilla.
Here is a much maligned fougiental from Lauder that was released in 1985. People either thoroughly enjoy and respect this creation or they hate it. Lauder for Men is a bold, green fragrance that is a little outside the box of the conventional fougere. It polarizes due to its edginess.
After 10 minutes, the carnation is in the pocket and settled down nicely. The floral heart is a blended array, polite in volume and tuned for augmentation. The carnation is still evident above the rest on my skin and the result is an extremely unique conglomeration of notes.
Lauder incrementally gets woody, a bit mossy and brushed over with a soft vanilla. There's hints of resin that come and go in the drydown and the fragrance never loses its green theme.
Not everyone can wear this successfully, but to me ( and on me ), Lauder is a winner. Big thumbs up from Aromi for this forgotten gem.
