Berkana is another pearl in the bunch of interesting concoctions appointed for Torre of Tuscany (and yes for I Profumi Del Forte) by skilled perfumers by the implementation of high quality ingredients and natural resources. I really appreciate these italian artisanal brands because of the undebatable genuinity and quality. I detect by soon a sort of landmark Torre of Tuscany's vibe in the background which represents immediately an ideal olfactory thin red line with Corpi Caldi from the same brand, i think to a weird sticky/balmy/aromatic/"barmish" (kind of brewer's yeast) note which unfolds a really enveloping, warm and carnal (for a while almost culinary) effect in the air. May be this kind of vibe is produced by a weird connection between resinous green notes (birch tar), leather, powdery cedarwood and may be secret hints of edible balsams. The beginning is soon a combination of faint citrus, vetiver, sticky resins of the wood, a touch of smoky olibanum (despite this is not properly an incensey concoction) and leather. The latter is a notable trait but is the fruity/floral birch tar that in this phase emerges as a standout element. It seems to faintly detect a touch of the tarry/woody/smoky/leathery Black Tourmaline's bone-dry temperament for a while even if in here the scale leans more towards the woodsy/rubbery side a la AP Bois d'Encens (or a la Arso but in a far less "boisterous" way) as the consistency keeps on to be far less dry and decidedly more resinous than in the Durbano's creation. I have to say that the vetiver is notable throughout to me while under my nose is the cedary touch the one emerging after a long while along the final phase of the evolution. The aroma remains sticky and birch tar/vetiver centered till the end but you can notice throughout many incensey, smoky, grassy and floral nuances. An interesting concoction for sure with a medium sillage and an over the average longevity.
Pros: Woodsy and resinous in a balanced way.
Cons: Any in particular."
