The venerable Pancaldi by Honorah. This fragrance is one of the better kept secrets circa 1989. It also has amazing similarities to Revillon's French Line.

Even now, Pancaldi affords me one of the most enjoyable openings in my wardrobe. It's relationship to French Line is evident in the top and heart accords, then both go to the finish line taking different paths. I like French Line, but Pancaldi is the superior of the two throughout.

Pancaldi opens with what may be the smoothest basil oriented accord you will ever smell. The opening leans green and spicy sans anything jagged in its makeup. The citric spice accented with Juniper is perfection.

Most will say "Pancaldi" ??? I've never heard of it. Regardless, Pancaldi for Men came in Haute Concentration as well, but I could never tell either rendition apart, so that's a mute point. The entire theme of Pancaldi is spice and green with a woody leather underneath. It absolutely succeeds and manages to keep itself supple and substantial at the same time.


Like most fragrance accords that we see, there's usually only standout notes or clusters that get recognized or demand our attention. Pancaldi is no exception in that regard. The "list" of culprits is a merged entity with a few tuned with more presence to give it a face.

I have always loved the aroma of this fragrance. It's classic without being dated, possesses the ability to smell full and round without the normal projection associated with 1989. My only gripe ( if I have one ) is that Pancaldi lasts 3 to 4 hours and then needs reapplication. However, I personally don't have a problem with this because I get to relive the opening again.

Big thumbs up from Aromi for Hanorah's Pancaldi. Sillage is moderate but full and longevity could be better. My recommendation is to snag a mini of this as they are still available and come to your own conclusions.
