Summary: A wonderful and beautiful smell that lingers on and on, in fact it is very powerful so dont put too much! Also another thing to take into consideration with this is the weight/mass of a person I am somebody who sweats easily and has a endomorph type body , and i have found that fragrance like these ones work really well with me and have a very high projection with what i wear(probably gets carried by my sweat) but nevertheless if you are also somebody who sweats easy,...
Summary: it is my first from baldessarini & i liked. it is some how very soft and still masculine but it can be used as a unisex one . it is creamy vanilla it remind me of dior homme has a good longevity & moderate Sillage it deserves the try a unique one from baldessarini only vanilla lovers are invited smell : 8 long : 8 sillage : 6
Summary: I agree with the Fahrenheit 32 comparison. Strictly private takes it down a notch and makes it creamier and much more enjoyable. Very relaxing fragrance and something that can be worn for work or for play. I don't get the feminine references. This smells about as feminine as L'Instant De Guerlain Extreme. Projection was perfect for this type of fragrance and longevity was around 6 hours on my skin.
Summary: For me this is a perfect oriental/woody spicy like fragrance being almost gourmand. I never smelled Tom Ford's TV so I cannot compare. Woody notes (cedar) mixed with some dry vanilla/creme brulee accorded by amber and patchouli. The vibe it gives me is very sensual, luxurious and expensive. I never smelled anything like it and for me it's the best by Baldessarini followed by the way less original Ambre.
Summary: One of the rare vanilla based fragrances that i find wearable. Longevity being average or a bit over average and a big sillage. The black bottle with a gold color sticker saying "strickly private" describes this fragrance aptly. A good example of a masculine vanilla frag thanks to the quite dominating vetiver-patchouli heart. The smell reeks of money, power, privacy, dominance and authority yet being warm and comfortable at the same time.
Summary: i agree with" creme-brulee".ultra cool black & gold bottle,but i've smelled this style all over before.not a knockout for sure,but decent enough for that caramel vibe.if you never try this,it won't effect your life.not really worth looking into.
Summary: I agree with reviewer Sybrarite that there isn't anything slightly feminine about Strictly Private - in fact it's quite typical of modern designer masculines these days. Unfortunately Hugo didn't invest a whole lot in perfumers when developing this scent. It's largely a jacked up synthetic woody-amber with a bit of pepper and a slug of vanilla. If I had to pick one of the myriad generic masculine woody ambers around these days (Givenchy Play, YSL L'Homme, etc.
