    A curtain of seriously honeyed boozy vanilla which gently sways apart from time to time to let in a breeze scented with spring blossom. The effect is utterly original but it takes a serious amount of craving to wear something so sweet it’s almost suppurating. With time the vanilla fades out somewhat and the heart of pulpy peach and apricot mixed with orange blossom begins to pulse, introducing an edge of tartness. There’s a pore-clogging richness to Hedonist, but as the sillage is moderate, it won’t offend.
    I’m still trying to pin down a curious, sour, old makeup note in the dry-down which seems to jar at times and at others seems to be an interlocking part of Hedonist’s complex swirl. Classic, golden, honeyed, expansive, many will likely find it irresistible; for me it took several wears before I could take it on its own terms. For a long time I missed depth notes, maybe something dry or bitter, a bold touch of wood or spice, before arriving at the conclusion that that would have probably resulted in something heading in a completely different direction to the one the perfumer had intended. It’s grown on me and I have a sneaking feeling that increasing familiarity will result in greater pleasure.

    Rich Syrup Rum Tobacco Peach Cigar

    Hedonist is a very strong ,dense and syrupy perfume - nothing subtle about it at all. On thing for sure, you will get your money's worth from the 45 mls for $195 before tax because this stuff wears like Dior's Poison .

    Applied to skin, immediately, Hedonist is rum and tobacco mixed in with a peachy syrup note. I have no doubt the quality of this perfume is excellent because you really do not need very much of it to smell distinct.

    It is a beautiful perfume - rich and sweet . Not gourmand sweet but flower-syrup sweet. As it dries down, it begins to resemble Fracas mixed with honey , on my skin.

    At this very moment, Hedonist is not to my liking. I find the rum -tobacco pairing overpowers the other notes

    Pros: Long lasting
    Cons: Price"
