Barbier des Isles Fragrance Reviews


I just did a vial dab sampling on my wrist, so I'll update if I give it a regular wearing. I found this to be a weak, "feminized" (more floral) version of Yatagan, missing the strong castoreum of Yatagan, and almost having a watery quality (not in a calone/aquatic fragrance way). I found it both unpleasant and uninteresting. This is a muddle to me, and I can't understand it, so I'll just stop my review here until I think I can say more that might be helpful.


What absolutely astounds me is that this fragrance is being sold as a women's fragrance by at least one online seller. It is not.

The very name Barbier des Isles "Barber of the isles" bespeaks its masculinity. This is essentially like Yatagan mixed in equal parts with Polo Green and ethanol. It is a dry woody, somewhat smoky fragrance with spices and herbs. The lasting time is nowhere near Yatagan or Polo, but still respectable enough.


Before I try it I though it would be a light, fresh a little spicy woody-aromatic scent, judged by its notes. I'm fooled! This one is so thick and heavy and dull you almost can cut it with a knife! Where is the orange, where is my favorite bergamot? all I can smell was incense and some burnt spices. Oh and a hint of vetiver but in this case it did not help freshen up this fragrance. I have never found CSP's scent I don't like but this is the one! I don't think I will try it again at least not in the near future. Disappointed!
