    The Fulgor's real complexity is demonstrated by the fact that you will probably need at least a couple of hours to fully notice that this fragrance is basically a great sandalwood dominant aroma. I have to immediately outline in here my serious admiration for this utterly satisfactory intense woody floral/oriental (with a laborious and articulated evolution) ending up with a languid ostensibly rose/mimosa centered "white-woody" floral accord (the illusorial effect aroused by narcissus, honey, dusty fig leaves, saldalwood and oriental patterns). The element that mostly impress me about this fragrance is the veritable antithesis between a really carnal and spicy-indolic floral/fruity initial accord (almost syrupy floral patterns plus tangerine, saffron and a fig leaves "iris-like" white sticky dust) and a final romantic honeyed and almost (just apparently) rosey woodiness (which seems overall an harmonious melodic operetta after the initial "bloody techno shock"). Fulgor opens with an "obdurately" spicy-indolic figgy floral fist (mastered by a huge saffron dust joined with an hyper-penetrating tangerine/narcissus accord) which is ideally (by my olfactory mnemonic archive) perceived as something across ELDO Noel au Balcon (tangerine/honey/patchouli/spices/musk), Elie Saab Le Parfum (orange, honey, white flowers, woods, musk, rose), Chloe Eau de Parfum Intense (because of its ethereal rosey dry down), Narcise Noir Caron (narcissus, orange, sandalwood and rose), Lumiere Noir Pour Femme by Maison Kurkdjian (spicy honey and patchouli) and the classic Lancome Poeme (due to an honey/mimosa Fulgor's simil undertone) all over a musky and woody/ambery resinous foundation not so distant by an ideal sort of Musc Tonkin without all that huge dirtiness. The dry down with its incense/woody honeyed floral agreement plus amber conjures me more than vaguely the final Mugler Alien Essence Absolue's almost creamy outcome with a tad of the Dior Dune for Her's dreamy "pale" romantic vibe. The deep dry down, after three or four hours, appears anyway on my skin still smooth but decidedly woodier and slightly drier with its dominant smooth floral saldalwood (a la Santal 33) with a burnt sugar-like almost bitter/herbal spark (typical of many "sandalwoods" as for instance the Etro's one). The note of incense is masterly blended in the final amalgam in order to provide a touch of misty "resinousity" to be flanking the woody oriental depth. The "accomplished" aroma appears elegant and ultra-sophisticated on my skin. Really an interesting new creation long in evolution, surprisingly talented and almost natural in the olfactory perception.

    The inital citrus-saffron accord is not so distant from Tom of Finland's opening but surely less sparkling because of the total absence of aldehydes. Don't let this mislead you as Fulgor takes immediatey another path by introducing a bizarre (that's the most approriate adjective that comes to mind) accord of incense and something else, that I suppose being what they call Graphite and Pyrite, that smells haflway bewteen pure kerosene and something extremely mineral (charcoal?). A subtle yet remarkable leafy fig note together with narcissus try desperately to alleviate the tension while a bold earthy patchouli/amber combo lurks threateningly in the back waiting to take over during the drydown...INTENSE!

    Wearable? Surely not among the most versatile fragrances around yet quite unique and compelling. Something to experience.
