    This is the most beautiful and positive fragrance I’ve ever come across. Tops even Givenchy’s Insensé. So well crafted, sunny, bright, classy & uplifting that I am truly lost for words. I have a collection of over 300 fragrances plus 500 decants and THIS tops them all.

    This fragrance was in my sample pack and I was very eager to try Schwarzlose’s 1A-33, which I find to be a very nice floral-citrus scent that is perfect for the Spring and Summer days…and perhaps also an warm weather evening scent too.
    Unfortunately, performance 1A was less than stellar on my skin – more like 4F in that it lasted between 3-4 hours and sat softly. Moreover, to my nose it initially reminded me of Neroli Portofino for the first few moments before quickly transitioning to a sister scent to Jo Malone French Lime Blossom (not identical), which I may like even better.
    While I solidly like this fragrance on the ladies–let’s be honest, it’s a woman’s perfume–there is no way any testosterone laden man can rock this scent outside the privacy of their home. But still a very nice uplifting floral fragrance.

    For me, this is the smell of happiness and springtime. It’s very welcome today in the current harsh political climate.
    The notes differ slightly on the Schwarzlose Berlin website:
    Mandarin, Pink Pepper,“Spree” River Droplets Accord. Jasmine Sambac, Linden Blossom, Magnolia, Cedarwood & Iris Powder.

    Very interesting yet common [by that I mean not exactly mind-blowing original]. I totally agree with DoraRoxx that the opening is very TF Neroli Portofino yet within seconds, on my skin, it morphs into a dupe of Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic. So I ask you, is it worth the price tag?

    This is such a nice classic perfume. it opens up with mandarine and something spicy, might be pepper! Then it cools down and smells very magnolia like to me. I love it on men, but wore it myself, too. I sprayed it on my clothes and it lasted for days.

    Again, I keep asking myself the same questions as many have already about the nature of these revived old houses and formulae. The central marketing message is about nostalgia, the revival of an old brand, the feel of their website and the design of the bottles seems to go toward a deco/modernist, utilitarian look (although the individual webpage of each perfume is resolutely modern). Are these fragrances a faithful recreation of old perfumes? By now I don’t think anybody is expecting a re-issue of old, unchanged versions, and we have set our expectations around the loose field of re-interpretation of old recipes or an approximation of the zeitgeist of the days these perfumes are meant to be about. There will be an element of modernity, for all sorts of reasons, and we have probably learnt to live with this tension.
    The next question is to what extent the balance is inclined toward the modern and what does that mean (mass market? generic, inoffensive, bland?). I am struggling a bit with this house to find answers to these questions and I had to have a third go at sniffing the samples before writing up anything about them. I’ll try to go through all four of their current line-up as soon as I have the time.
    The first one on my list, 1A-33, is probably my favourite. It does come up with some vibes that connect it to other times, so the redesign of a classic fragrance (which I have never experienced) could be more credible. It starts with an interesting linden accord, sharpened by some citrus and pepper. Linden trees and also linden tisane are more popular on the continent where I come from, so it is a bit difficult to find many comparable linden fragrances over here. I have made myself a cup of linden tisane to have something to compare it with, although I refrained from putting honey and lemon in it (which was what one was supposed to do when having a cold or a cough). There is a good resemblance, so this aspect is quite authentic. When testing it on my Anglo-Saxon partner, the reaction wasn’t great – linden is not carrying the same cultural connotations or memories as it does for me.
    The second phase kicks in quite fast and becomes a floral citrusy combo, with vague hints of the head notes. The base is tenacious and quite strong, but it is probably where I part company as it enters the modern territory of somewhat generic scents that could be anything, anywhere.
    I have to say that I recognise something in this fragrance from perfumes, cosmetics or hairspray my mother was using in the 60s and 70s. I am prepared to be convinced that the balance is slightly tilted in favour of a classic vibe and this is an interesting reinterpretation. There is a certain degree of simplicity here, as I don’t get an impression of lavishness or luxury. Good lasting and staying power, good projection. Overall score, 7.5 out of 10.

    Lovely Composition.
    I bought it in Germany for 118€ (50 ml).I would say it is opening like Tom Fords Neroli Portofino but not that sharp in my nose. I get pepper, orange blossom and linden blossom. Not to fresh like OWARI from ODIN or Little Italy from BOND. I get sweet flowers after some hours which i really like, maybe some magnolia too. The pepper is gone after an hour, Jasmine stays
    .In total it last 4 to 6 hours.
    Lovely rounded Parfum that wil impress you if you like Neroli Portofino in another Light. More strong, sweet and with a bigger projection.
    Try it yourself!I enjoy it at work in the office and also by going out to a nice restaurant. It is wearable 24 hours. You will sniff your arms again and again. I promise! Thumbs up!
    scent: 9/10
    longevity: 6/10
    sillage: 7/10
