Notes: Sadly, the exact composition is kept a secret.
Pros: Completely unique; fresh and green yet sweet and warm, a very appealing and versatile fragrance.
Reminds me of: Geir is incomparable, but if I had to select other scents that I personally feel could share a category with Geir, how 'bout Kenzo pour Homme (same wonderful green mossy notes) and Eau de Monteil (same dewy sweet plant and leaf essences)?
Development: There's very little development in Geir as the entire composition is so well-blended, no single note really stands apart.
Longevity: Excellent - it's an EDP concentration.
Sillage: Also, excellent. I've received numerous compliments while wearing this.
Where can I buy it: $45 for a 50ml edt spray; $65 for a 100ml edt spray at Beautycafe.com
Bottleworthy: Definitely. Without a doubt.
The Bottom Line: When I first smelled Geir in 2001, I didn't really care for it, but after receiving and testing a sample, and having the chance to do more than just spray it on my wrist, I quickly fell in love with this scent of the "crisp Norwegian mountains, blended with herbs, wetwood and natural oils." An airy green scent, with a wonderfully smooth and aromatic core, this has to be one of the most unusual aromas I've had the pleasure of discovering in men's perfumery. One of my favorite compliments was when my friend Margo exclaimed "What is that smell? Someone just smells amazing! It's like sex!" I happily volunteered my right arm, and alas, it was me.
