Baladin Fragrance Reviews

Baladin is a green leather like Dzongkha.

They do not look !! Both have in common that terpene, fresh and incisive character of green and leathery notes that the end result so strange, maybe I like that.

Off-tastes, it is noteworthy that Baladin is at least different, unusual and original for the touch: fresh and green leather, green leather touch and also similar to Duel cool, although the latter is much more gentle, lovable and wearable that baladin or Dzongkha.

When I smell Baladin him find his way inside surreal dream world and always linking it with green forests of birch and bamboo, always icy, dangerous, with a couple of silent lurking cats.
I would define as an olfactory experience, strange, eerie, forest, leathery, animal and very attractive at least for my nose.

Cult fragrance certainly more than to be used, has a markedly olfactory descompesación intentionally seeking an primitive aspect. Linear, markedly male with moderate duration and powerful wake during the first two hours and then feel more comfortable thanks to a final note of vanilla musk that makes a weak sweet, mellow and friendly aspect.

53歳の日本人です。13年前の2001年に仕事でパリに。ニコラを取材し、そこでBALADINとNEW YORKERを購入しました。BALADINの落ち着いた香りはその当時は自分より年上の男性の付ける香水と思いましたが、最近になって自分の欲しい香りになったと思います。しかしBALADINは日本で売っていないのです。これは実に悲しい。ニコラさん日本でも購入できるようにしていただけませんか。

This is a pleasant cologne. Unisex. It's easy to wear and it is not going to offend anyone, but neither is it likely to wow them. There is some citrus in the opening and although lavender is not listed I do seem to get it too. The drydown is a gentle accord of some leather with vetiver, neither of which is more prominent, with a subtle herbal sweetness. I cannot detect the rosemary unless it is the flowers of the herb, which I am not familiar with. Tarragon is noticable along with an accord that I associate with lavender modified by vanilla and a little citrus. The combination is pleasant, well balanced and it sits fairly close. The gentle leather and vetiver contribution to the drydown accord makes it different from most generic colognes. I like it but I don't love it, and it would be a good scent for work or for casual. I could understand it as someone's everyday scent

A weak but pleasant dry citrus herbal. It starts out somewhere between a pure EdC like Jean Marie Farina or Nicolai's Cologne Sologne, and a stronger lemon/herb scent like Wellington or Blenheim. It has quite a bit of cilantro, so Live Jazz lovers may want to check it out. In fact after some time, almost all I smell is cilantro, so that's almost a thumbs down for me, but not quite because I still find it more pleasant than Carre d'As.

This one is an oriental in the same vibe as Jicky-Guerlain and L'Heure Defendue( aromatic cocoa). It does smell dirty in the beginning, but it continues with a masculine and delicious aura.

Parfums de Nicolai’s masculine fragrances show an appreciation for subtlety and a range of gender that most lines appear not to consider. New York is dramatic and lush; Vetyver is soft and refined; Patchouli Homme is a blockbuster, but relies on classically feminine notes to hit you. Baladin doesn’t fall into any typical fragrance genres, but is recognizable to the nose for the clarity of its composition and the use of identifiable notes. Citrus, culinary herbs, wood---notes you’d find in many men’s fragrances. So why is Baladin like no other men’s designer fragrance?

The top notes are citrus/herbal, including lemon, oregano, lavender, tarragon and pepper and add a bit of traditional herbal bouquet from the kitchen. But the raspy lavender also ties the lemon to the soon-to-appear vetiver and birch notes. Overall, Baladin is bracing rather than warm: the lavender and lemon, tart; the birch and tarragon, cool; the vetiver and pepper, dry and sharp. I’ve read from others’ comments that this is considered a leather and I imagine that birch wood can convey a birch tar feel, but I wouldn’t classify this as a leather, more an herbal-woody masculine.

Another example of Patricia de Nicolai giving men the benefit of the doubt and not equating masculine with faceless and drab.

While I can't count Baladin among the most distinctive releases in perfumery I surely can classify it as an honest and dignified masculine fragrance. A nice concoction of culinary herbs (mainly thyme) introduced by a very classic citrus-lavender opening. Birch tar and vetiver add some edge and a pleasant twist to this subtle composition.

Discreet, easy to wear but not banal. A perfect office fragrance that's still head and shoulders ahead of today's masculines. Reasonably priced and honestly crafted. Very nice.
