01 Nomad by Odin New York

Nomad: the first spray, i can smell sort of fig leaves scent, this may be because of the mix between bergamot and cedar and juniper berries. Dries down very quickly to the midst of musky smell in every pulse. In my opinion, this one is a musky masculine smell. Heliotrope and tonka bean contributes such enormous portion in backing the grey musk and the sandalwood which creates overwhelming powdery smell. I'm not a big fan of musky and powdery, for those who admire musky things like Keiko Mecheri's Paname and Maurice Roucel's Musc Ravageur, I'm sure you'll like this one.
Overall, really makes you feel like a nomad, a smokey nomad

Juozas Statkevicius / Josef Statkus by Juozas Statkevicius

WOW.... this one.... is divine, classy, royal, charming, heartwarming and smart. The whole mix of notes just perfectly supporting each other. The incense here (I detect frankincense) mixed with benzoin makes this perfume not sturdy and plays important role in camouflaging both sexes. I did a little test by putting it on my friends, and somehow when it's worn by male friend it turns to be charmingly masculine and when i put it on my female friend it turns to be divinely feminine, it think it has to do with a touch myrrh in the incense mix.

Absolute thumbs up

Oliban by Keiko Mecheri

This one opens with cedar, dries down to tobacco as the mid note with frankincense as the backbone and damascus rose dancing in every pulse. Not sure if this feminine, frankincense here is a little bit sturdy, while the tobacco sort of taking control which adds masculinity in it.

Overall, it's divine and classy, but not as royal and heartwarming as Josef Statkus.
