Trussardi Inside for Men
Once again I'm faced with a newer release that implements their version of a coffee note. Once again, I get no coffee. Allow me to say that I am an AVID coffee drinker and drink far too much of the elixir. I love the smell and taste of it, yet these releases that list it as a note must be using an extra-terrestrial version that I have yet to come across in my travels.
Anyway, I would have liked to smelled this note in Trussardi Inside, but the teak wood, suede note and subtle musk more or less compensate for it's absence. There is also a listed tobacco note that I cannot discern, but it may be that it is more subtle that I can detect. I admit to being accustomed to very obvious old school tobacco notes-accords that come front and center.
In totality, Trussardi Inside for Men is a decent wear and an acceptable spiced up woody. I like the teak and suede combo....and for that alone, I give Trussardi a thumbs up.
