Reviews of Absinth

Absinth has a nice sweet/woody essence that reminds me of Amouage Sunshine Man in that there is this sweetly, sharp green contrast with the woodsy background. I am not sure of the note breakdown, but there seems to be some incense, woods, semi-sweets, bitter pines, and some smokiness all wrapped into this fragrance.

As the dry down emerges, the fragrance settles into a nice woodsy sweet, yet slightly smoky fragrance that I think is very nice!

No green fairies, but man it does smell great. Absinthe is underrated and not talked about. We all know about Pardon and Black Afgano. This is very good in the summer time day or night. You will appreciate the wormwood and vetiver along with green notes. Easily one of my favorite vetiver fragrances. The only problem is the price and bottle size. Blind buy, probably not. You need to understand that this isn't going away after 3 hours- try more like 8 hours of sillage. This is what you wear for yourself and those who get close to you will either hate the woodyness of the fragrance or compliment how clean you smell.

This smells really great! I'm not familiar with the drink Absinthe, so I don't know for sure how accurate this fragrance is, but I can definitely smell some likeness with L'Artisian Parfumers Fou d' Absinthe, especially in the opening. I will say that I believe this Nasomatto version of Absinthe smells even better than the LAP version however. This is nice and woodsy, and I love the woods! Absinth also has better longevity than Fou d' Absinthe on my skin, which matters to me. The dry down smells like vetiver...specifically like Chanel's Sycomore, with the Absinthe aura hanging about instead of any smokiness. This is just a very enjoyable wear from start to finish. Absinth costs over $6.00/mil US however, so it's definitely not cheap.

I have been on a recent marathon of potential absinthe-centric scents to add to my wardrobe and this one is near the top of the list in terms of both accuracy and quality. In perfumery (so far) every absinthe scent is marred by either vanilla or excess wood, neither of which exist in the beverage. But I now understand that the notes derived from just the beverage itself would be so utterly fleeting as to be close to unmarketable.
Nasomatto's take on my drink of choice favors the woody side, giving a dry, rootsy feel with a particularly pleasant vetiver, like an apertif spilled into soil at the root of an old tree. I love this composition because it carries all the bitter and resinous greenery (wormwood, angelica) and tempers it so well with the given sweetness and musk (star anise, fennel). Whether or not this smells like absinthe (and it is certainly a close match) this is a beautiful scent to me in the very sense of the word, with decent staying power and a soft but confident projection. I usually balk at fragrances in this price range and end up settling for the occasional sample to get me by but this may very well be my next Derby. Six stars out of five.

Pretty good. Perhaps a bit rich and sweet which kept me from pulling the trigger, hint of vanilla/balsam also contributed to my hesitation. However, it does deliver a very good green-absinthe note (wormwood, licorice, fennel) with a woody dry-down.

Absinth opens with a nice harmony of woods and green-coniferous notes with nuances of aniseed, licorice, sandalwood, vetiver, a subtle but warm note of amber, and "something" fairly new to my nose, synthetic but fascinating, a sort of velvety, half anise half white musks note, aromatic and woody but with some floral silkiness all over. The blend is overall pleasantly peculiar, woody but sweet, peppery but almost gourmand, at the same time mellow, transparent, narcotic, with a bold dry resins feel (I thought for a while of those stands selling candies and licorices at street open-air markets). Then it gradually develops a camphoraceous note close to a typical chypre's benzoin note, always with a bold licorice-conifer aftertaste, and the pine note gets a more prominent role. Also the base becomes "greener", in a quite pungent and austere way. The drydown shows finally another twist, becoming a woody-tobacco warm accord with a silky, refined synthetic amber note. In my opinion, one of the nicest Nasomatto around - well, more precisely, basically the only one together with China White.
