|My bottle of Knize Ten|
|The House of Knize|
The bottle was designed by Viennese architect Adolf Loos, the number 10 symbolizes the polo game. A minimalistic and very simple yet classy design. The scent it self evokes a sense of luxury, class, and authority, like high-status gentlemen of the past who would wear suits, top hats, smokes pipes, and does hunting and polo as a sport. Knize Ten is available as toilet water ( Eau De Toilette), and comes in 30 ml, 50ml, and 125ml.

I would describe the opening and mid of this scent as a violent, sharp and needle-like but be patient and you won't regret it.

The dry-down what made me love this fragrance so much, after the harsh and throat-cutting opening and mid, the angelic, soothing, and extremely classy dry-down comes through. This is where all the good stuff has been hiding, luxurious and powdery miasma of roses, geranium, carnation, sandalwood and orange blossom, embroidering onto a layer of deep, rich, and silky masculine leather, then being stitched up by the warm and animalic fumes of amber, musk, castoreum and cedar wood.
What a wonderful scent from the House of Knize, tailor of the Royal Court, a perfect and wonderfully fitting scent to be released accompanying his first men's clothing line. A surprisingly enduring longevity for an EDT, with over 8 hours of strong noticeable silage. Wear this scent and you will sure be transported right back in time and find your self right in the middle of a high society tea party.
