Reviews of The Longing

Opens with a heavy spaghetti sauce spice blast. Not gourmand at all in the way most people expect (sweet). I get almost no florals or sweetness as it dries down, just an herbal apothecary type smell. I doubt I would be able to wear this, it's going on the swap pile.

On the contrary, imo, this beats Enigma. Top note after 5 minutes arrives a butter(scrumptious) and does last for about an hour and then comes this whirlwind of pleasure. Silage,imo, is twice creation e.Dont hesitate,get a sample and see for yourself. Rating on Bruces scale. Scent 10 longetivity 10 silage 8 tangible 9(lower price would be a10)overall rating 9.2/10. Great work matriarch.

No need for a long review but unfortunately this has striking similarities to Creation-E! The Longing is a damn good fragrance but I was disappointed that it is a borderline me too frag.
I really do not want to give this a thumbs down/neutral due to the quality but for originality or lack there of I have to give it a neutral.
Don't buy this fragrance if you own Creation-E edp
