    This is a really nice fragrance.
    The opening is a strong resinous incensy scent with some sweetness in the background.
    You can clearly smell the resins and the incense note that give that resinous scent a dark and almost powdery ashy feeling.
    They sweetness is very warm, sensual and smell like honey.
    The opening does have a very strong masculine aroma, but that honey sweetness give the scent a really nice and smart kick and push the scent to the unisex side!
    After a while and in the dry down, the incense and resin combo settle down and the honey sweetness become stronger. now the woods, caraway, small amount of rose kick in and all of them give the scent much more depth and character.
    It's quite pleasing that because of great quality and really good balance of the notes, you can smell all of them!
    In the base the rose note which was weak at the mid, disappears and all other notes are in the background.
    The yummy and sensual honey sweetness dominate in the base and all the notes which are in the background, give the scent a very beautiful aroma.
    Projection is good and longevity is great. 12+ hours on skin without any doubt.
    A really good sensual and at the same time strange and dark fragrance with good quality and great balance of the notes.

    The opening is pure carnality. Civet and honey, whipped up with hysterical, cloying rose and cinammon into a startling evocation of human arousal. It's a shock: a liberating one. This settles by degrees into a seductive, powdery, spicy, honeyed dance in which incense, rose and the sweaty civet all play a part. After a few hours musks take over, and for a while I found it very similar to MKK. Then the honeyed incense returns, with sandalwood this time. And for the next day or so a gradually fading complexity continues to give delight. Completely and utterly worth it for the opening alone, this is a wonder from start to finish. Possibly my favourite scent.

    To be really honest, I have tried this on paper and on skin several times, but I can not smell anything more than a rich, steamy, rusty... pee note. Not even "animalic" pee or anything poetic, just stinky human pee in a parking lot.

    4/10

    I would put this up there with Dominique Ropion's 'Portrait of a Lady' as one of the most stunning fragrances available.

    I had been meaning to try this for some time but had difficulties locating a sample. Finally got to try it.

    The opening had all the animalics I'd heard of, and indeed after a few minutes even smelled strongly of urine; I suddenly recalled Dernier_Cri's review:

    "reminds me of someone dead drunk on Barenjager who then urinated (by accident of course) onto a cheap leather jacket.....some time ago."

    The urine phase passed and I found myself in a cloud of powdery amber. I generally don't like powder or amber, but this cloud was shot through with threads of civet and it made a very interesting olfactory scene, indeed.

    Still, I had hopes that I would not need to add this to my "to buy" list.

    As it happened, it only became more glorious. This perfume is huge, celestial and yet grounded in animalic filth of the most beautiful kind. I was very sorry to shower it off, because it just kept getting better and showed no signs of ever stopping... I bought a bottle the next day.

    Ages deliciously

    Starts foully. But turns slowly into a sexily oppressive musk, whilst retaining a sense of honeyed innocence. And does indeed last aeons - the third day is the best.
