The Scoop

The sharpness of green limes and soapy bergamot burst from the bottle onto the skin. This forceful start slows down, blending with garden fresh geranium and lily for a moment of floral contemplation, lending Douro both sharp piquancy and a comforting depth. Then the base notes of musk and the all important sandalwood start to assert themselves. These three stages are all underpinned with labdanum, a bitter resin that imparts a unique leathery note, smoothing the fragrance into a mellow delight.

Great bouquet, depth, persistence and a glorious golden brown mellowness.

Here's what other people are saying about Douro...
Douro is very pleasant, but it might be a turn off for some because it smells very just-out-of-the-shower. Because of this, I don't think that Douro is very exciting. That said, if you like fragrances that are a bit more subtle or safe, or you are looking for something to wear for work or post-gym, then this is ideal. This has the same soapy feel as Castile, but Castile smells more like freshly laundered clothing. I think between the two, most would prefer Douro. Not for the under-30 crowd.

I should also mention, the moss element is very noticeable, oakmoss or treemoss.

Agree with Lars from Oslo. Classic as Harris Tweed sports jackets and G-Plan furniture, and reminiscent of one of Elizabeth Arden's long established lines for men. My immediate association was to couple of fragrances produced by Haarmann and Reimer, one from the 1960's and the other from the 1980's, but whether the fragrance comes from Symrise I do not know.

Classical British sophistication and elegance. Perfect for stylish gentlemen who prefer a timeless elegant fragrance. It radiates "good taste" in a wide distance. It`s a edc, but got the sillage and longevity of an edt. Highly recommended!

One of the finer samples I've tried recently

This is an amazing scent !!!! The opening is an irresistible scent of lime and lemon that transforms into a mild floral scent. The dry down is deep and masculine but not overpowering. Hard to explain but it's kinda like a fresh scent with a spicy undertone. Average sillage but it the scent itself attracts people that makes them want to smell you up close and personal. Everybody's got different skin chemistry. If you're unsure of buying this try a sample. This may not be for everyone but it's definitely for me.
