It's green and fragrant, barely camphorous and beautiful. The greenery of this scent embraces Artemisia and a carnation that also smells like it's colour is green, like a kind of Irish carnations.
The opening notes include citruses, neroli and aldehydes, a really standard opening to most fragrances of the period. The aldehydes are quite sturdy, and the citrus is contemporary and chilly. Then to my nasal detection I sensed the presence of a galbanum.
On the other hand , BANDIT has grown on me and gone from dislike to like. Compared to the Cabochard it's so a lot smoother , and slightly sweeter i cant isolate any 1 floral , but the touch of sweetness is there. The smartest thing about BANDIT is I can truly detect a warm, , attractive sturdy leather odor from begin to finish. It reminds me of my dogs leather-based harness or a horses saddle.
The dry-down is quite sensual and completely addicting. This is a uncommon scent, and to find it in genuine formulation is rarer, on-line. Do NOT take an opportunity on buying the obvious bootlegs you'll receive aboutbellewoods.com should you order it at a ridiculously low price. Bandit just isn't a simple fragrance to knock off, and the terrible junk they'll ship you for lower than $50 will knock YOU off, it smells so unhealthy.
Use the Piguet direct-advertising Web website or the department stores. It costs the total retail price ($75 minimally), but will probably be actual, and should you love warm, sensual, stimulating aromas that will last, Bandit might be considered one of your most coveted EDPs, too. I even have Cabochard on one wrist on bandit on the other. In all honesty i still dislike cabochard intensely , its too dry , too harsh and it jogs my memory of old ash trays . Sorry to followers - no offence supposed , simply stating my sincere opinion.
Bandit has a very classical or vintage scent to me, yet it doesn't feel dated. That may be as a result of the perfume was ahead of it's time and the truth that it's extremely properly-blended. The perfume is complicated, clean, dark, very leathery; I get lots of oakmoss, aldehydes and civet; it is very warm and green and earthy.
I can also detect the inexperienced chypre sides - Oakmoss n Galbanumn , which is all good as i really like oakmoss/chypre scents. It truly smells fairly interesting , in the way in which a lovers leather jacket with there physique scent on could be an aphrodisiac.
This fragrance evokes a masculine carnation pinned on a man's go well with. I pictured Oscar Wilde, whose favourite flower was the green carnation.
