In the search for masculine scents, many perfumers err by doubling down on darker, more intense notes. However, Invasion Barbare by MDCI Parfums is bare of such errors. It exudes warmth, intelligence, and sensitivity instead of just strength. All these elements exist on the underlying presence of the perfumer’s passion. Built on the delicate contrast of freshness and warmth, the fragrance has an unexpectedly mesmerizing depth. The opening fruity notes of grapefruit, bergamot, violet leaves, etc. open the scent with a bang. The heart notes of bourbon, vanilla, and musk bring a creamy darkness to the aroma that oozes intelligence with the usual base notes of patchouli to wrap it up. Our impression - Dominant Ace - does justice to the original.
