TVOR and Lush/Gorilla perfumes are completely unavailable in the states, so patience was required prior to the application. It was WELL worth the wait.
TVOR takes me to a place that I have always wanted to visit - the beatnik 50's. It is supposed smell of cigarettes, booze and espresso. Somehow, they have captured not only the listed olfactory triggers (and they are some of the most accurate I have ever put my nose to)...but the 'dessert' is also captured. While the top is amazing and unique, the heart notes seem to really make this one versatile (that is most definitely saying that the opening is going to turn heads in both positive and negative ways) and I get some vanilla mixed in with the dense papyrus and sandalwood.
Confidence is required, and TVOR is not mainstream or fresh. If you are a non-smoker, you may not enjoy this one....especially if you are going to be in close quarters with other non-smokers.
I love this stuff. It makes me happy - and somehow inspires me to create...and that is most certainly something I NEVER expected a fragrance to do. I like paper, coffee, booze and cigs - so obviously this is the most comfortable scent I have ever worn.
Projection is through the roof - and your trail will mark your territory. It lasts 24 hours on my skin.
Normally, I am not a fan of the splash bottles - but in this case, I can not imagine a full spray of TVOR on my clothing...it might never come out - and frankly, it's not needed.
10/10 - Better than any Niche I own...and probably my new favorite.
