Reviews of Satori

This one is so restrained that it’s at the point of being invisible. An obsessive-compulsive incense, Satori is cleaned up, put away, and polished to the point of being sterile, on the verge of medicinal hospital hygiene. Combined with a faint trace of spice, it vaguely recalls the Japanese-style oriental of the original Comme des Garçons, but rendered in grayscale—so much lighter, and without the highs and lows and the dirty honey sweetness that makes that one sing.

There’s really nothing to dislike here—you’d have to apply a gallon to even attempt at overdosing. For those who want a scent to fade into the background, this might do wonderfully. But to say ‘it’s boring,’ well… that’s an understatement.

Very Japanese aesthetics. It is a quiet woody fragrance with elements of florals and spices. It also contains agarwood according to the company. Being a Japanese fragrance - where it is essential at all costs to not offend others - it is very subtle. It is well blended and rather beautiful though many would call it 'weak' I suppose. Unisex.

Genre: Woody Oriental

Satori has been difficult for me to review, largely because it seems devoid of any distinguishing character. It reads as if somebody combined the last dozen or so spicy-woody niche releases, diluted them tenfold, and placed the result on the shelf in a fashionably austere black bottle. Yes, if I apply generously, hold my wrist to my nose, and inhale sharply, I can detect traces of cinnamon and clove, sandalwood frankincense, but they don’t combine in any unique or compelling manner, and the whole composition feels insipid and attenuated. As for the agarwood (oudh) and oakmoss, I don’t smell any of them. Civilized and inoffensive, but only marginally more effective than wearing nothing.
