Reviews of Immortal Beloved

This smells like a boozy sweet eggy pudding when it goes on. I await developments...
It's bread and butter pudding! This may not sound like a fine fragrance note but it's delicious. It's not sugary sweet and has a big round booze and woods feeling to it. Good for an evening scent, and not like anything I can think of offhand, but also not in any way odd or edgy. It's very comfortable, and I'd imagine is great in winter.
As it progresses it loses the sweetness and is a dry wood with something of an old book lined study about it.

Sharing a glass of fine cognac in the shop of a dry fruits merchant – that’s the story of Immortal Beloved for me, now that I have worn it.
But I almost didn’t wear it. I kept getting a reek of stale, almost sweaty immortelle from the sprayer and was dreading some statement perfume that would try to make a virtue of brutalism. Good news, then – that doesn’t happen.
What emerges is a finely tuned and complex perfume, with the kind of stateliness and severity that is chypre territory. But Immortal Beloved is only chypric in its abiding dryness, the melange of notes have an oriental warmth without the gooeyness often characteristic of that genre.
At its heart is a successful match of refined boozy notes with concentrated and desiccated fruitiness – like sniffing a plump dried apricot that has just been sliced in half. It’s almost Lutens territory but without the shower of spices that would be more characteristic of that house.
There are a few interesting sideways manoeuvres that unexpectedly work – one is the inclusion of a jammy red, red rose deep in the mix. It sings its siren song sweetly from a distance, and is the more intriguing for it. Another is a breezy lavender reminiscent of wide open spaces which should be a complete mismatch but, again, works because it is used subtly against the booze and fruit main theme.
Anchoring it all is that sense of dryness which sets it apart from various OTT failures in executing this kind of olfactory complexity. It’s a reassuring hum of skin-toned immortelle, the dry mould of Artemisia and the depth chord of an ambery labdanum. They offer a restraining hand and keep the various elements balanced. Late in its life, it’s this ambery fundament that is predominant.
Quirky, yet poised, Immortal Beloved is a good choice for winter.

Immortale Beloved is a spicy sweet amber quite oriental in its effect and a bit overbearing. It starts with an almost medicinal accord of sweet ripe fruits (strange I know!) then it mellows into a sweet tangy amber, and dries down hours later into something that reminds me of Arabic coffee. It is wearable in a decadent and kind of on your face way. The longevity, silage and quality are great, but then again you will appreciate IB only if you like this kind of perfumes. For me IB is heavy and overly "perfumey".

i really think this is a super-refined take on the 1740 formula and as such, is preferable. while there is little discernible immortelle (maybe odd given the name), it is replaced by a great plummy note and adds richness to a dry tobacco & cognac base. very cozy & comfortable for winter

Lurking, somptous, inebriating floral scent on a whiskey foggy base. Really rich but perfectly balanced, you can easily smell each component apart. A bit... conservative perhaps, but great!

8/10
