I cannot make up my mind about this. It was recommended to me as a bloody bloody blood orange and indeed, it smells like that for about ten seconds. Or a minute, tops. After that, ther eis not so much to smell, except for a homely room-scnet like pleassant scent. Okay, if this cost 20 EURO or something, I would buy it. Maybe I just need to give it another try. I now got a sample of Odin 9, lets see about longevity of Odin in general.
Absolute rubbish. Sorry absolute expensive rubbish, at that. A smell you would associate with one of hose perfumes you can get at the Pound Shop. The box and bottle is where I guess the money is spent. Certianly not on the ingrediants. I bought this on the reviews, wo is me, should be my avatar! Be guided by your nose. It is poor, and I dont get any Kapow, Bang, Slam, more like a theres a hint of fly killer spray.
Smells like mandarin peel
I am trying a sample at the moment which will last me for about 5 full wearings.
The start of the scent is really nice and citrusy but after an hour there is very little left.
Medium thumbs !

The bitter orange that opens this scent is absolutely incredible. Love it. The drydown fades to something less intoxicating, and very faint. It seems like the longevity on this one for me is only a handful of hours, maybe three max. I wish it would stick around longer because it smells fantastic.
Owari's opening is really wonderfull and its evolution is exactly like a firework. It explodes in the sky with a spectacular effect that's very efemeral and turns rapidly into ashes.
An incredibly realistic and slighly bitter/green mandarin/citruses opening, turning into a bergamot/neroli middle phase to then turn again into a disappointing, and absolutely generic woody-musky drydown. The main problem with Odin's fragrances is that they clearly smell designer while they sell at niche's prices. I'm wondering why someone should by them...
Overall Owari is a barely nice fragrance.
