001 Man by Loewe
What Does 001 Man Smell Like
The opening scent of 001 Man by Loewe is a piquant blend of cardamom and sharp, crisp notes of Calabrian mandarin orange and Italian bergamot. This initial, bold fragrance slowly mellows out, morphing into a decidedly earthy heart. The middle notes feature an intriguing blend of slightly sweet carrot seed, woody cypress, and cedar, all layered with a deep undertone of Indian sandalwood and vetiver. The resulting aroma is rustic with a hint of spiciness.
Gradually, the base notes emerge, providing a solid anchor to the scent. Hints of velvety ambrette mingle with the sultry white musk, resulting in a musky sweetness. Subtle injections of Indonesian patchouli add a layer of earthy depth, while whisper-soft violet provides a finishing touch with a powdery, floral undertone.
Overall, the scent comes across as a dynamic fusion of woody, spicy, and sweet tones, backed by a creamy, powdery base. It's like a walk in the woods on a crisp fall day, coupled with a warm spicy sweetness that adds a comforting touch. The creamy heart provides a soft landing, and the final flourish of violet keeps the fragrance refreshing till the end.
Review of 001 Man
Loewe's 001 Man is a perfume that unmistakably leans masculine, though its eclectic mix of notes caters to a wider audience. It is an intriguing blend that is primarily woody and spicy, with a distinct powdery undertone. You'll find a subtle creaminess lends a certain smoothness to the scent, rounding off the sharp edges of the spices and introducing a comforting warmth.
While the scent is certainly complex, it never becomes overwhelming. Instead, it carefully straddles the line between statement-making and subtle, making it an excellent choice for both leisure and business settings. Its sillage is just enough to make an impression without intruding into someone else's personal space, a quality that makes it an excellent day-to-day fragrance.
It finds its stride in the cooler months of fall and spring, where its warmth is most appreciated. While it does fair decently in the winter, it might be a tad too light for those extremely cold days. Summer, on the other hand, may enhance its sweet notes a bit too much, making it feel somewhat cloying.
The longevity of 001 Man is commendable, though it's not the most enduring scent on the market. It won't last you from dawn till dusk but should see you through a good chunk of your day.
In terms of value, while it isn't a steal, it's reasonably priced for the quality and subtlety it provides. However, if you're looking for a powerhouse perfume that commands attention from across the room, this may not be your first choice.
In conclusion, 001 Man by Loewe is a well-crafted, understated scent that offers a sense of warm, woody comfort without being too invasive.
