Tricorn by Caswell Massey

Bangalore Sandalwood.

Anyone who has ever worn or smelled Tricorn by Caswell Massey knows there's more than just Sandalwood in this composition. I've found the reviews very interesting and they lead me to believe there is more than a few formulations of this brew floating around. After all, it's been around since the Biblical Flood, so it stands to reason.

The one I have smells like clove, cinnamon and bergamot atop a creamy sandalwood. The Sandalwood is evident within a minute of applying and it's borderline buttery. There also seems to be an implementation of Labdanum in the base accord. It's assuredly old school in construction and aroma, but in spite of that, this particular formula makes for a very nice comfort scent.

Tricorn is a masculine fragrance that probably wouldn't get much praise from males in their teens and twenties. It may garner some respect from that same age group if they are seriously into this hobby. We all know that the longer you stay in the world of scent, the more your tastes evolve, mature and recognize a viable fragrance when you come across one.

I happen to be a fan of Sandalwood. Now, not every sandalwood scent is to my liking, but I usually find something redeeming about most of them and some I find exceptional. Tricorn may not be a measuring stick, but it's a pleasant walk into the past for me, sans the stigma of being dated or passe. It's simply "nice" and I find having scents like this in ones wardrobe advantageous. It can be worn as a casual or formal fragrance and all the while possesses a volume that's good, but never overbearing.

Since picking up a bottle, I find this masculine very relaxing to wear. There's a barbershop quality to Tricorn and I normally don't care too much for that particular genre. I have a few in my wardrobe because they have that something "extra" that wins me over.

I have to say that this particular formula is a very good barbershop woody with spice. I haven't heard great things about the other formulations. This one however starts off with spicy, creamy  woods and ends with a satisfying amber. Sillage is moderate and longevity is approximately 4 hours plus on my skin. Thumbs up from Aromi for Caswell Massey's Tricorn. As always, a sample wear is recommended.

  2. Hi eula_w. Usually, I find older formulas on ebay, so that's what I would recommend. If a current version is acceptable, then the Caswell Massey site is your best bet. Best of luck !!!
