    This stuff. Man. It opens with a bitter Vetiver almost medicinal smell. I get hints of something like cat urine mixed with spice, musk, and woods. As it dries down the cat urine / bitter note does lessen (but doesn't disappear) and you are left with more of the spicy, woody, musk. It smells like an old man.

    The only saving grace for this stuff on my skin was that it didn't project

    The past few days have really driven home the idea that there are a lot of good fragrances that are so completely subjective that they are hard to rate. I feel at the end of this I'm going to have a lot of scents that will range between 5-7 and it's going to be really hard to know which one is better. In some ways it's why I go back and forth about putting numerical ratings

I even thought about not giving this one a numerical score because I wasn't sure if it actually fits into this contest. In the end there is just enough there that I thought it fit.

    People are going to be upset with this review but I have to be honest with my experience. I wore this fragrance all day today, took a shower and wore it again. Ive went through dry down twice and really feel I have a good idea of it. I had no expectations and didn't know a ton about this one except people were big fans of it and it's pretty expensive. This is my honest take

  5. Artisan Parfumeur - Tea for Two

    Reviewers rave about this being like drinking chai by a fire with ginger cake. On me it's nothing but jasmine and faint soap and it disappears after half an hour. Fail.

    In self-education terms, if there actually is jasmine in it then I know it will probably be turned up to 11 because my skin seems to do that to jasmine. It may also be the spice notes interacting badly with each other, it's one thing I tend to dislike about spices. Can't explain the near-instant fadeout at all though. ...
