Be Bop Pour Homme
Be Bop Pour Homme by Parfums Kesling is a 1992 release I believe. This is a spicy aromatic masculine that is off the beaten path. I find it reminiscent of Dali and Sud Est, but both were off-putting to my nose, Be Bop veers away from being overloaded with spice and piercing, yet finds a way for the spices to co-exist.
The opening is citric and spicy. The aromatics from basil,thyme and lavender work well with lemon, tangerine and bergamot. It's different...it's a little weird.....yet I keep sniffing my arm. Within minutes, the spice works its way to the top and stays there.
The heart and base consist of coriander, cinnamon, clove, vetiver, cedar, patchouli, opoponax and musk. This fragrance is chock full of goodies, but that doesn't necessitate it being a superior or underrated release. What Be Bop is simply translates into an acceptable spicy aromatic masculine. Probably more valuable due to its discontinued and hard to find status, BBPH is a fun sample wearing and at the same time, a fairly good masculine. A try-b-4-u-buy is recommended.
