    Jeke is one of those "I appreciate it, but can't wear it" fragrances. The first time I sprayed this I had to scrub it off. The opening is very hard to get past if you don't like smokey tobacco with a animalistic amber backing it up. Add to that the fact that this has nuclear projection and you have something that could clear a room. Versatility is not going to be one of Jeke's strong points. Interesting fragrance, but unless you can find a place to wear it a 10 mL decant would last you for years.

    The benzoin was brilliantly planted in this one.

    The main players in this are definitely Tobacco and labdanum, but the way the benzoin pokes and plays with this unapologetic dry composition is funny and genius.

    Imagine a pack of wolves :
    The tobacco is the alpha male and the leader of the pack.
    The labdanum is the alpha male's favorite female in the pack to mate with.

    But then you have one member in the pack who is playful, goofy and always seeking attention, but no matter how much he pushes the alpha male's limits, the alpha male never lets him cross the line. He tolerates him yes but never takes him seriously. The goofy wolf knows that and it kills him, but there is nothing he can do about it.

    That's how i would describe Jeke: A powerful wolf pack with a little secret.

    Wet burnt rubber tires on a bonfire of molded brush! Horrible!

    Jeke on paper smells slightly sour like many Slumberhouse scents, but on skin, it is a soothing honeyed malt. Creamy vanilla and toffee provide a bed for peat smoke, charcoal and tar, along with more subtle brine, smoked seaweed, anise, ginger and citrus. That's right. Jeke is a scent of rustic autumn smoke that smells like a scotch.

    Ohhh. Lovely leather, lovely wood, lovely oud?, or whatever they used to create the impression of newly turned earth after a rain, wet leather, autumn produce split open on the ground. This is a take-no-prisoners, musky masterpiece. Absolutely nothing disturbs my finicky nose. Applause, applause! It says, "Go to the lake. Look. See that hand reaching from the sky to the lakeshore in the rain, grabbing clay and making man." OR, think a Meerschaum pipe, a leather chair by a fire, and a very old Armagnac on a tray nearby. Not sure I'll wear this myself, maybe layer it with a floral, but I'm sure as heck slathering it on my guy. What's in it? Benzoin, patchouli, tobacco, Lapsang Souchong (looking it up...black tea from the Fujian province of China, has a famously smoky aroma), vanilla, clove. Just tremendous! [p.s. Venturing censure, I layered my Zahd sample over it and thought I'd died and gone to heaven!]

    Makes me smell like I just fell into a old, wet bonfire pit. Quite smoky and masculine but it just didn't tame itself quite enough after dry-down.
