Tumulte Homme by Christian Lacroix
If a fragrance could be compared to, let's say, a baseball team.......this squad would consist of basically one player covering every position. I like cedar ( I guess) as much as the next person and I can't think of a more appropriate frag to reach for when I have a jones for wood.
The bottle is extremely nice. The aesthetics, feel and sprayer are commendable. However, if you like your woods in the company of other outspoken players, Tumulte will disappoint. This is in your face cedar that leans on the dry side. While it's a good rendition of the note due to 4 different cedar implementations, it tends to get monotonous rather quickly. There are a few other listed notes that I can only assume are included to augment the dominant wood, but they fail ( on me) to have any impression.
At any rate, am I glad to have a bottle of Tumulte? Yes......I am. This is wood out the Wazoo that is housed in one of my favorite bottles. I'm not quite sure what the name Tumulte has to do with Sir Woodzalot. What is "hurried" or rushed about a cedar fragrance? I'm clueless, but I own more misnamed scents than this one I can assure you.
All wood lovers need to sample this at least once. You will smell like you just jumped out of a large cedar cabinet and still have sawdust in your pockets. Thumbs up for the very linear ( but good) Tumulte by Lacroix.
