Narciso Rodriguez Narciso was launched in 2014, created by Aurelian Guichard. From the brand - "I wanted to create an extremely sexy fragrance that would turn a man’s head. The sensuality becomes a little bit more sexy, a little bit more intoxicating." Notes of gardenia, white rose, musk, cedar, white cedar extract and vetiver. This is the EDP, eau de parfum.
Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Reviews
Fragrantica - "How was it possible to turn a banal woody floral into something so pleasant, beautiful, grand, so classically well made and yet so modern and fresh? A masterwork of a great pefumer, Aurelien Guichard, who has now officialy surpassed his equally great father, Jean ;)
I like Narciso so much that I stopped caring about its feminine character and simply started to apply it in small amounts on myself (yes, I'm a man). Also, that sweet and careless quality of Narciso reminds of a long-lost gem – Vanilia by L'Artisan Parfumeur. A true marvel."
Fragrantica - "This is the epitome of classy and feminine. This is so sexy but in an understated and elegant way. Musky, powdery, sweet but not cloying. It's also incredibly versatile. Whether it's at the office or a black tie event, it never feels out of place. I get so many compliments when I wear this. Specifically from men."
Fragrantica - "This perfume is a soft, musk feminine scent. Powdery but not overly, it has a slight sharpness to it which gives it that edge. The dry down is just gorgeous."
Fragrantica - "It starts with a normal floral soapy accord, powder and vanilla. Then, I get animalic musks, sunblock and gardenia on a sturdy base of cedar and vetiver. Such a well-built perfume with lots of thought and intention! This fragrance is so creamy and smooth that it’s transitions remind me of a white silk pajama cozying up in bed."
Fragrantica - "...while narciso starts off super punchy with the rose, about 20-30 minutes in (on my skin), it melts into this soft & fuzzy musk with creamy gardenias. there’s also a woodiness from the cedar, which adds a modern edge."
