I felt it was time to revisit this 1984 release from Victor. I enjoyed it in 2009 when I reviewed it initially and find that I haven't changed my opinion of it since. It wasn't until then that I finally got around to trying it. Wall Street by Victor has a familiar aroma and feel to it. This is due more to construction than anything else. A quarter century is a long time between a scent being released and one actually trying it. Then again, what's 25 years between friends?
There's nothing frivolous about Victor's Wall Street. It's a serious fragrance that means business, yet manages to do accomplish the task with a deft touch. This facet is why I like it.
Wall Street opens with an expected citric accord featuring juniperberry and herbal tones. The top and heart does tilt green, but it's a soft, fuzzy herbaceousness mingled with bergamot. It's a comforting accord found in some classic fragrances, yet here it maintains civility.
Even still, Wall Street smells confident, masculine and reserved. The fresh quality has dissipated and what has evolved is a leathery moss. The green persists and in drydown exhibits a resinous aspect to accompany it to the finish.
Sillage is moderate but full and longevity is about 5 hours on me before I reapply. Thumbs up from Aromi for Victor's Wall Street and a sample wear is recommended.
