Knize Ten

Eau de Toilette
The Scoop
Joseph Knize, one of its inventors lived in Vienna and was a supplier to the Royal and Imperial Court. The fragrance we offer, Knize Ten, has been available since 1925. The great author Hans Habe once said that, if he were cast away on a desert island, he would take Knize with him, since, for a man using a toilet water, it was really not so much a matter of undermining the morale of a beautiful woman than boosting one's own.

The brilliant designer and poster artist Ernst Deutsch-Dryden played a decisive role in the composition of Knize. Knize was the most famous men's outfitter in Vienna. His shop still exists today with a much-admired interior, one of the great works of the architect and designer Adolf Loos. Knize Ten is one of the few fragrances to have distinct note of leather. Perfumers, who are capable of lyricism equal to that of wine connoisseurs, differentiate between the top, heart and base note of a fragrance and sense chords and cadences in the combination of these three. The top note of Knize is citrus-fresh with petitgrain, orange, rosemary and bergamot; the heart note is dry to woody with cedars and sandalwood, and the base note is leathery with castor and ambergris. In view of its age, Knize is not, of course, a fully synthetic perfume. It contains costly natural substances - patchouli wood, lemon, orris, clove and orange blossom amongst others.

Two years ago hated the samples but now that we are "over" the Oud period, this classic hits home. It is so complicated I never tire of putting it on. The soap is even more subtle and they make a body cream/emulsion that is also beautiful. I never get compliments on this scent but I don't need to - that is the magic of Knize Ten

This has a strong leather note mingled with subtle citrus and florals and ideal for both sexes. Some people get a "tar" note, but this is very minor. I would compare this as a lighter version of Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque, as CM has some "rubber" notes and leather.

I let the samples rest for a day before trying. I wore this twice before I came to a conclusion. This, though much older than anything by Serge Lutens, smells identical to Chergui. I must say I'm not a fan of either. It's a sweet, floral, suede scent that is not masculine at all, in my opinion.

So I was looking for a leather scent that was masculine and lasted a long time but also embodied my passion of cars from the 30's & 40's. So after reading the reviews on Knize Ten, I went for it and never looked back. I however am not big on the powderyness at the initial spray on, but its what the dry down smells like that makes it worth the wait for me.... its like a leathery classic car interior and hint of vanilla on my skin that keeps me smelling my wrists throughout the day, or catching whiffs from the breeze around me. I love this scent and what it does for an ego boost is also worthwhile... it just hits the spot for what I was looking for and keeps me standing out in a crowd in a good way so it works for me.... and I am 28 yrs old...call me an old soul?

I read somewhere that this was James Dean signature scent! Beyond COOL!

So I got this sample randomly with a purchase, trusting in luckyscent's expertise, and looked it up on here before I tried it and thought, "oh-a man's scent. why the hell did they send me that???" but i tried it because the notes sounded good enough, and i kind of really love it...something about it reminds me of Sacrebleu, but without the awful fruity beginning. I usually dig big white florals, but this is really intriguing! luckyscent knew what they were doing after all-broadening my horizons. :) try it!

Not the leather i was expecting. It seems mostly floral, with the iris taking predominance on my skin, and not in a manly way. I am not impressed.
By Rick - Software Test Specialist from Laurel MD on 1/7/2011
Very smooth,I agree with another reviewer,women can also wear this! Very nice leather in the mix!
By Anonymous - Perfume lover from Cincinnati on 12/26/2010
The coveted Knize Ten IS the reference leather fragrance and there has not been one yet to eclipse it in my opinion. Not Bandit, not Cuir de Russie, not Or Black, not even Royal English Leather. Oh dear seekers of the holy grail of leather fragrances, look no further than the legendary Knize Ten. (it is safe for both sexes to wear, too!)
By Calero - from Houston on 12/6/2010
This is a great rich leather fragrance that morphs into something a little bit more gourmand and spicy. It is very long lasting and warm, it must be applied in moderation. Utterly masculine yet lovely in an old world European way it evokes Vienna and style in a well tailored outfit from Knize, with just a touch of naughty "dirty" ennui. But it is so sophisticated and so traditional at the same time. This is a true classic. Almost impossible to find, Franco and luckyscent.com has done a great public service in bringing it to their website.
