Anvers, the first in Ulrich Lang's line of scents, is undeniably classic and masculine, but it features several subtle twists that clearly place it in the modern era. Yes, it smells like a man, but an unusual kind of man. Perfume critic Luca Turin suggested people looking to convey mystery turn to Anvers, and we think that sounds about right. Because if we smelled this on a passerby, we'd do a quick 180 and pursue just to find out a little more. Notes include bergamot, lime, tangerine, sage, mint, basil, violet, jasmine and geranium leaves, sesame, honey, leather, moss, sheer ambers, precious woods, and guava.
