Reviews of Shooting Stars: Shingl

There is one review of Shooting Stars: Shingl.
An interesting leather that starts off quite weird and ends up pretty. The main star of Shingl is a nice suede note, almost creamy and decently rich. On top, it's paired with some craziness - There's a weird animalic rum/gasoline mix that fights it out with the suede for the first hour or so. This stage kind of reminds me of what you'd get if you took all the flowers and prettiness out of Knize Ten and only left the mix of leather and gasoline. Given time, it comes together to smell like rubber cement (I bet they don't still use rubber cement in elementary schools, but it was a weird rubbery glue with a distinctive, vaguely narcotic odor).

After a couple of hours, with the rubber and gasoline faded away, I'm left with that suede, but now pretty and flanked with that peachskin note from Mitsouko. As the day has gone on, the overall effect has gotten a bit cheaper, as a tacky strawberry candy smell has welled up and replaced the peach.

Overall, not bad. Shingl has kept my interest without being distracting, kind of like a suede drone with different adornments coming and going. I didn't love the gasoline part, and really don't like the strawberry part, but the rest was really fun, so I'll give it a neutral.
