I always regarded the Moschino fragrances as something that is far from my personal taste in perfumery due to the brand’s image. However, when I read last year about the upcoming launch of Moschino Forever I felt I needed to sample it, to see if anything new happened. What you are about to read represents the result of my unbiased impression, while testing this perfume.
Moschino Friends was introduced in 2011 as an aromatic fougere masculine fragrance, developed by perfumer Nathalie Lorson from Firmenich. As explained by the description from official website this scent was “created for a classic man, with strong personality that enables him to be original and unique”. What I have discovered subsequent to the sample is a well-behaved scent that deserves your attention, in spite of its inevitable little flops.
The opening of Moschino Forever comes as a refreshing blend of kumquat, bergamot and star anise. Later, in the mid development, you will perceive the accords of clary sage and tonka bean, combined with spiciness of black pepper. For the dry down, the Italian fashion house has prepared us an elegant aroma of veriver, combined with warm sandalwood and musk.
If on the olfactory department everything is as it supposed to be, my complaint refers to the image of Moschino Forever. The transparent glass bottle with rectangular shapes that reveals a golden hue liquid is topped by an unsightly silver stopper that is reportedly replicating the brand logo. In spite of the attraction felt by a certain type of customers (most likely the fans of 1 Million by Paco Rabanne!) this is one of the situations in which the saying “Less is More” could be excellently applied, the cap being the reason for which I would not want to purchase this fragrance. Moschino Forever is ideal for the young man, who wants to draw the looks over his fashion style.
