Reviews of Sweet Morphine

This is quite beautiful – such a delicate, soft, feminine floral. It’s not in the least heavy or cloying – it’s a lovey, light scent perfect for any weather. Longevity is pretty good – I put on a dab this morning from the little sample bottle I received and seven hours on I can still smell it. This has gone straight to the top of my wishlist – class in a bottle. Absolutely gorgeous!

The opening is a mix of mimosa, violet and iris, a lovely and gentle combination that leaves enough structure for the individual components to express themselves. An opening that is more caressing than invigorating.

The drydown adds touches of a somewhat less defined rose, and later in the base orris and vanilla form a smooth and soft base. Initially a whiff is a soft patchouli is evident, a patchouli without sharpness or darkness though.

The core of the base is characterised by a rounded and restrained sweetness that is very well balanced and never intrusive or cloying. The vanilla-orris dyad carries the day.

The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent and the longevity a brilliant twelve hours in my skin.

A smooth and creamy spring floral for cooler days and evenings that is well blended and good-quality ingredients. Some features appear traditional and some are more contemporaneous. A versatile creation. 3.5/5

Another super chic Ex Nihilo's piece of modern perfume-art, a scent waving throughout in the middle between traditional classic elegance and contemporary minimalistic glamour, angular (kind of simil-indolic) floral brightness and visceral dark-oriental synthetic carnality. Actually in my humble experience Ex Nihilo is dancing on the top levels of that contemporary neo-classic synth perfumery with a new modern-chic coeval inclination. Floral freshly radiant brightness and dark/oriental smooth-velvety enigma coexist in this provocative formula. The name itself (Sweet Morphine) clearly embodies and unfolds this inherent ambivalence (the romantic and translucent "rosey-dreamy" on the side of the more obscure "erotic"). Especially in the top you can experience a juxtaposition between floral angularity (typical of such florals like lilac or peony) and superb woody-floral oriental silkiness (kind of porous and spongy due to an addictive melange of musk, smooth iris absolute, soft vetiver, a tad of suede, woods and yummy well calibrated vanilla). A destabilizing floral conundrum. On this "mature" stage you can catch vague connections with smooth iris-veined dry downs like the ones we get in scents as Laboratorio Olfattivo Daimiris, Dior Cuir Cannage, Heeley Iris de Nuit or Parfumerie Generale Cuir d'Iris (each one of the previous taken for several of their characteristics). Initial bergamot, musks and woods imprint classic chypre structure rooting down (as usual for Ex Nihilo) an olfactory "basement" for a following modern-chic evolution. Iris, complemented by a mesmerizing smooth vetiver (like in the middle of a Dioresque combo), provides enigma and "pathos" to the whole floral composition, expressing finally the floral radiancy out in terms of elusive silky mistiness and warm woody-floral carnality. Finally I catch on skin hints of vetiver's saltiness, really evident along the dry down. Dry down ( combining classic and contemporary in a pretty new interpretation) is the top of neo-classic silky sensuality, a dark waving floral-smooth mantle making a special woman to stand out among dozens and dozens. Class, wisdom in perfumery and super glamour modern interpretion.
