Alain Delon Plus

Aldehyde, Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary.
Carnation, Cinnamon, Cypress, Green Note, Rose, Honey, Geranium.
Cedar, Fir, Labdanum, Leather, Moss, Musk and Tonka Bean.

First, please excuse the image since I took it and photography is not my strong suit. I am camera impaired to say the least and to find an online image of this has been an unfruitful task.

I like Alain Delon Plus and it is a variation of the original Delon Classic. Both feature a terrific rendition of oakmoss and that is the theme in Plus. This is a mossy and woody gem that has always been overlooked.

AD Plus opens with a shimmering citrus and lavender that's borderline spicy. The rosemary is evident immediately and balances out the top very nicely. This accord is excellent; albeit a little on the old school side.

The opening subsides within about 5 minutes and the moss has already been creeping into the transition. AD Plus has taken on the green, mossy woods aura and this is where AD Plus shines. The rosemary is accented slightly with geranium and carnation. These floral notes are at a low enough volume to allow a resin to noticeably integrate.

The woods in AD Plus is interesting. It transpires as if you  smelled a grove of trees and neighboring herbs on a breeze. Cypress, Cedar and Fir are listed, but I smell them as one entity. It's a tremendous aroma and modern masculines could take a page from Plus. This has dimension and it sure doesn't hurt that it smells great.

Once Plus finally begins drying down, the same accord is carried over. The volume is lowered and a soft leather is introduced. The fragrance remains green and only hours later ( on my skin ) do the oriental notes embellish the woodsy moss.

Sillage for AD Plus is good and longevity is about 5 hours before morphing into a close scent. It may be old school, but AD Plus is extremely good at what it does. Big thumbs up from Aromi for Alain Delon's Forest in a bottle.
