Some of the finest things in life don’t necessarily make the best first impressions. L’Orange Noir falls squarely into this category, but once experienced, little doubt remains that the unlikely marriage of orange zest and potting soil produces a positively sublime olfactory sensation.
Fine Classic After Shaving Splash is an elegantly formulated throwback to the days before men’s shaving was refashioned into dermatology. The premium fragrances are sophisticated but entirely masculine, and evoke an unmistakable “barbershop” quality. The short ingredient list ensures an ultra-light face feel, followed by a refreshing and skin toning dry-down, which leaves no slick or tacky residue. Then, at the finish, a perfectly measured cooling sensation brings the experience together in a way that delightfully exceeds the sum of its parts.
