Just beautiful. One of my favorite fragrances for men – I love the feeling I get when I wear this one. Rose, powder, musk, a hint of bergamot-style citrus. And not a girly rose smell either. Elegant, very English, refined. Picture a suited man holding a rose and this is what he’d smell like. Longevity is 2-4 hours – reapply if you must! Cheap as chips and well worth adding to your collection, or a starting point for a man on a budget.
Top notes are Ginger, Cardamom, Green Mandarin and Bergamot; middle notes are Wild Rose, Nutmeg, Cedar and Spicy Notes; base notes are Tonka Bean, Cedar, Gray Musk, Oriental Woodsy notes and Patchouli

It’s a pleasant scent overall. Smells cologne-y, smells aquatic. Sometimes a bit icy or mentholated. A bit spicy. I guess you might consider it “green”, but it doesn’t really remind me of the world of plants. It’s not burning my nose or giving me a headache, but the overall effect is a bit harsh and synthetic to me. I find I am going nose-blind to it rather quickly, though others are smelling it more clearly. Some fragrances have me smelling my shirt all day. I don’t think this will be one of them. I am ready to move on after a couple of hours.

Fragscent Perfumes introduce high quality inspired impression of Aqua Di Gio by G. Armani, It feels fresh but not as sharp as the typical aquatic scent, the freshness gets round up by the smell of jasmine (flowery sweetness). The canola and the flower mix its what I feel as I am walking.
You get aquatic notes topped with green notes ending up in sweet floral notes.
Cant judge the performance cause Ive just tried it, 3 hours till now its almost as just applied

Azrak by Fragscent Perfumes is high quality impression of Azrak by Boadicea Victorious. This fragrance is so gorgeous to me. I love the rose like opening that stays on my skin for about 2 hours, with great projections. The magic comes in the mid and dry down for me. There is this creamy sweet/spicy woody note that I get with a hint of rose in the dry down on my skin that is absolutely magical for me.
That is my favorite part of the fragrance honestly. I receive compliments every time I wear this fragrance.
Projection 2-3 feet
Longevity 8-10 hours depending on the day with wafts in the air.
Compliments are amazing
dry down is magical

Fragscent Perfumes introduce High Quality inspired impression of 212 VIP Black by Carolina Herrera. Has slight similarities to Pure XS, but it is softer and smoother. I like the use of Lavender here. Not too sweet. I like it much more than 212 VIP Black Extra. Black Extra is brash and pushes the Lavender towards an aquatic feel. This is soft, clean, boozy musk. Longevity is just fine
Great fresh business fragrance suited more for cold weather. Its not sweet at all its something I would wear during an evening walk or a dinner night – masculine and fresh. More suited as a day fragrance i would say. Love it very nice and pleasant smell with a very, very long lasting smell.

Clive Christian 1872 perfume by Fragscent Perfumes is High Quality impression.
Beautiful, gorgeous, green and sweet Fragrance.
It’s very close to Green Jeans though this has a slight middle skew of light florals where as GJ was about the coriander.
So, this would sit on my rare shelf of killer citrus scents like Houbigant Duc D’Vervin L’Extreme, Tres Bien Institute Cologne L’Italien, Jacques Fath Green Water EDP and vintage EDT, acqua Di Parma Colonia Club and Tom Daxons Cologne Absolu. Not one of them the same… in fact I get occasional whiffs that remind me of Houbigant Cologne Intense…
Edit: I’m reeling in my suggestion about the dry down… it tends to fade a fair bit between two and five hours to an oily residue and closely resembles Cologne L’Italien and definitely the slightly off putting green tarragon finish of Houbigant Cologne Intense – so not a great performer in longevity but when it does work it’s gorgeous and this does seem to be in the cold. Ironically this means Green Jeans as an EDT last longer!
1872 For Men by Clive Christian is a Citrus Aromatic fragrance for men. 1872 For Men was launched in 2001. The nose behind this fragrance is Geza Schoen.
