Bandit by Robert Piguet
Bandit starts off dark and stays that way. I cannot say I like the reformulation. This rendition of leather smells a bit raw to me. Originally classified as a Chypre of the fruity variety, I get none of that in this sample wearing. Whatever florals are in here are severely pissed off with what I believe is Rose stirring up the pot. There's also a bit of earthy animalics present, but there's no transitions that would make this rendition of Bandit interesting.
Sampling this was an experience, but not one I would want to endure for hours as a result of a full wearing. When I need a dose of "tough", I won't go reaching for this. I have others that fit the bill and are a more comfortable wear.
