Equisetum fragrance notes

Reviews of Equisetum

There is one review of Equisetum.
This is an unusual scent. Sometimes, it seems like a powerful, old-school masculine scent of the '80's. Other times, it is a dry and austere lavender-mint, very similar to Czech & Speake's Oxford and Cambridge.
The opening notes have very dry, herbal lavender. Very quickly, this is joined by moss and tobacco. The opening and closing notes compete and somewhat push aside the delicate florals. I couldn't really detect them.
The lavender and mint cool things down considerably and balance the warm brown notes.
Suddenly, there is a real whiff of true ambergris: acidic, salty, animalic, slightly challenging. Not often encountered in perfumes these days!
Ultimately, at least on my skin, the scent settles into the dry lavender mint.
I like it, but I feel it ping-pongs around a bit too much and the middle notes aren't served well by the powerful bookends.
