Reviews of Promise

At first you think this is a spicy rose scent. But the whirl of of its contrasts all eventually seem to revolve around the amber base. Many amber scents are built around rose which is such a natural opening to an amber warmth. Dominique Ropion creates a unique odor of contrasts that is impossible to describe yet is totally unforgettable. Promise. Prickly cloves coat the sharp edges of a tart green apple cloak that covers a huge floating, suspended in time and space, heart of rose which hovers over the mystical, almost invisible depths of patchouli + nagarmatha/cypriol amber base. This cold incense woods base pulls the warm light of the rose and clove heart deeper into its irresistible gravitational depths. Promise is a clove and very lively floral amber that is drawn slowly into the wisdom of its cooling incense base. The primary character of Promise is spicy and warm rose. But, the unforgettable quality is the depth of the incense as it lounges into the smooth amber which ties it all together. To me this creation is close to masterpiece territory from M. Ropion.

Starts out with crisp apple and spicy roses. Not Portrait of Lady kind of spice but more sour.
Unfortunately this sourness takes over soon and drowns the roses. I think Ropion tried to do another POAL with this but went too far with spices and cypriol. The composition is unbalanced. There are a few moments when it wafts to my nose that I get a glimpse of what he was trying, but unfortunately he fails.
Still a good fragrance for those who can look past the weird sourness.
