A friend once said the most unforgettable scent is a mixology containing whisky, cigarette and cologne. Debunking the daddy issue and alcoholism, we at MP would have to agree with that amusing statement. Seeing that our whisky 101 series is still in the works and we are not really smokers, ManPossible has decided to suggest a cologne to complete this threesome.
Applying a similar “nosing” gesture as you would when sampling and appreciating whisky, this cologne slowly unveiled its secrets... 1) Bringing the nozzle closer to our nose, our sense of smell is immediately hit by a concentrated blast of alcohol of some sort. 2) Bringing the bottle back to our nose a second time, we started to pick up distinctive ingredients. 3) Repeating the back-and-forth motion with the bottle for 2 – 3 times, we noticed the strength of alcohol depleting, while other fragrances you didn’t notice before (citrus, nutmeg, oak moss and sandalwood) began to take a more permeating presence.
If we are honest (which we always are), we are quite fond of this fragrance. The light aroma isn’t too strong to the nose and definitely doesn’t overpower your surrounding environment. As you progress throughout the day, you’ll notice the subtle hint emitting from your skin, giving you that unexpected pleasant reminder. The best way to describe this cologne is to compare it to a fine bottle of whisky; the flavor (scent) becomes more intricate the longer you indulge it.
