Modern fruity/mossy chypre.<p>Dolce narciso<p><p>The strawberry/prune presence is really influencing since the beginning (embodying in my humble opinion the main theme throughout) really intense, redolent but by soon characterized by a floral and musky smooth character. The consistency is mossy, indolic and almost edible with a clear musk/iris (and vanillic) general softness (a soft musky cushion). Probably faint spices are inserted in the recipe. The intensity of the narcissus perfectly fits with the musks, the vanilla and the fruity performance while the massive mossy/ambery dry down is vaguely a la Neela Vermeire in style. I find the accomplished final aroma slightly fat and a bit too pungent (not in a spicy sense but i mean intense in a fruity/floral way). A rich, nostalgic and vaguely neo-baroque ambery chypre to be proudly worn for a night of gala.<p>P.s: unfortunately the dry down after a couple of hours is too heavy on vanilla and greasy for my taste. A pity after a promissing opening.<p>Pros: Rich and luxurious.
Cons: Too much intense in a fruity way."</p>
