Austin Reed’s Signature hits a nice note

austin reed signatureI’m not sure what I was expecting from Austin Reed’s new fragrance for men but I certainly wasn’t expecting to like it quite as much as I do. Warm, woody and delightfully floral, Austin Reed Signature also has a gourmand sweetness to it but doesn’t overplay this in the crude, blunt way many men’s fragrances do so the dry down has a nice, but not sickly, creaminess. Good price point too.

The notes

Top: Sicilian bergamot, graprefruit, tangerine, pepper

Middle: Moroccan atlas rose, chinese geranium, thyme, ginger, liquorice, cardamon, orange flower

Base: Vanilla, vetiver, cedarwood
