Or Masculin by Bourjois

Lemon, Mandarin, Bergamot, Basil.
Jasmine, Sandalwood, Coriander, Patchouli.
Amber, Moss and Musk.

Or Masculin by Bourjois possesses a waxy quality that I smell every time I wear it. It's not exactly a lemon pledge aura, but it's reminiscent of what surrounds old wooden furniture embroidered with leather that have just been polished. This aroma has depth and the bergamot and basil implemented in Or Masculin must be of the oil variety. I could be remiss, but they smell that way to me.

Think Boys Club and paneled rooms. The coriander lends an aromatic aspect to Or Masculin and the basil note is well executed. The feel is thick and you can almost taste this. If the Donald wore this, it would be completely appropriate. It also smells excellent and would inadvertently take some attention away from the irrational hairdo that is his trademark.

The people to your immediate left can smell Or Masculin emanating from my skin. They are incredulous because they expected to see George Steinbrenner or possibly a C.E.O. connected to this aroma, but no......they got me instead. They can stare all they want. The stern looking gent in the gray suit on the left is especially tense and sweaty and no doubt perturbed that a blue collar schmuck sitting behind him has better taste in his scent of the day. Maybe he will go buy himself some after he exits.........

The heart and base of Or Masculin is as substantial as the opening. It begins to evolve into a woody amber during the heart accord and manages to maintain a slightly aromatic edge during the transitions. The jasmine is buried underneath the dense aspect of this scent and doesn't have the room required to unfold and spread its wings. It also could be that olfactory fatigue denies me this note, but it really doesn't take anything away from the overall character. This is a masculine fragrance with no frills and an air of seriousness about it.

Or Masculin finishes its journey after 6 plus hours. The last few hours of wear have Or Masculin as a woody amber with musk and never does this scent take a turn for sexy or sensual. It's simply masculine and succinct. Thumbs up from Aromi for Bourjois and its direct approach to virility.
