There's not a lot I can say about what Quorum Silver smells like, other than that it's a dry cedar fragrance. It smells crisp, sharp and clean, and is unlikely to offend anyone. Just about all I smell is cedar, though I can tell it's blended with some pepper and patchouli to make it aromatic, and a little oakmoss, to give it a touch of sweetness without making it rich or heavy.
And that's really about it. It's cedar, plain and simple, and it smells good. It's nothing that will blow you away, but it's a clean woody fragrance that is competently made. It starts off bright, dry and peppery, but the scent darkens and deepens a little bit over time, even though it still remains a linear cedar fragrance from start to finish. Sillage is good and the smell lasts a long time.
I need to add that Quorum Silver has almost nothing in common with the original Quorum. Whereas Quorum is strong, powerful and in your face, Quorum Silver is discreet, cool, calm and collected. The only thing the two siblings have in common is that they both smell like they're made up purely of natural ingredients. This is a quality I've consistently noticed in all of the Antonio Puig fragrances I've smelled.
My one complaint with Quorum Silver is that it's too simple, and it gets dull and tiresome to wear after a couple of hours. Smelling unrelenting cedar and nothing else for hours and hours in a fragrance makes me want to take a shower and scrub it off, so I can wear something more interesting. I rarely find myself in the mood to wear this, so my bottle just sits in its box for long periods of time. However, this shouldn't deter you from buying a bottle, since it's very reasonably priced and it is a competently made wood scent.
