Strong, Powerful,
The sun of the East.

Much personality and sensuality in this fragrance inspired by the sharp edge of the saber of the Samurai. It takes risks by associating attars of cypress of Italy, coriander of Russia and cardamom of Guatemala for a unique harmony of strength and excellence.

Power.

Second time that I put this review here.... ;)

Rare light species. Nothing more.
It's light and don't project but lasts about 8h+ close to the skin.
For me, smelly and have a poor sillage (It's a good think).

scent: 2/10
longevity: 7/10
sillage: 3/10

Wow!Wow! Wow!

And how opinions differ...

This magnificent perfume could be re-titled, "Fantasia on a Theme by Jean-François Latty", the (obscure) nose who created YSL's (original) late-80s gorgeous 'masculine', "Jazz".

Indeed, I remember the impressive impact of first smelling this in Roja Dove’s flamboyant, glittery Harrods’ emporium a few years ago and thinking that if you strip away the complexity of the opening of "Jazz" and go straight for the heart of the matter, then "Katana" presents as a big, bold, warm, almost-creamy, animalic-leather, fougere. However, “Katana” is difficult to classify as it also shifts towards ‘woody, floral, musk’ territory and, add a twist of silver frankincense, would not be out of place if released by the House of Amouage - and I do not say this lightly.

"Katana" reminds me slightly of Amouage's, "Epic, Man", though less ebullient and without the oud and incense, together with aspects of Azzaro's wonderful, underrated, "Acteur" - another late-80s treasure.

"Katana" has formidable projection; tremendous silage and verges towards something 'green' though never quite gets there, instead scattering scintillating metallic notes like yuletide tinsel around the tree: a characteristic that defined another seminal YSL masterpiece, the original (women's) "Rive Gauche".

"Katana" is stunning, and despite my references, it is somehow original - perhaps even a sort-of post-post-modern masterpiece - and I would place "Katana" in a 5-star box of its own if using the Luca Turin-Tania Sanchez classification system.

For the record: my vintage is in a black-painted bottle and I remain indebted to my friend “T” for introducing me to this gem back in Roja’s fascinating, top-floor, mirrored, ‘black room’, as my collection would possess a significant lacuna in the absence of “Katana”.
