Pino Sylvestre

Good old Pino was created in 1955 and is STILL a viable scent today !!! Not many can boast that feat. Pino, along with Acqua di Selva, were the 2 culprits who unwittingly got me into this hobby circa 1980 or so.

Pino Sylvestre is a fresh fougere that opens with a blast. The citric lavender is a very herbaceous and spicy accord  due to juniperberry and thyme. It is aromatic, but settles down in a few minutes and from the very beginning, pine needle is in the middle of the action. This masculine is herbal and green and gives justification the to the term "fougere".

The initial accords last quite some time before giving way to a more subdued, mossy wood base. As the drydown continues, a very subtle amber-tonka duo make an appearance. You have to search for these two since the green theme is dominant and doesn't leave much room for anything sweet to survive.

Pino is a very good, very economical and refreshing GREEN fragrance that can be easily worn in any season. If you happen to like fougere's, there's no reason you shouldn't like Pino......and you'll love the price.
