The fragrance notes according to Ayala are as follows:
Top - Szechuan pepper, bergamot, iris
Mid - Narcissus, coffee flower, orange blossom
Base - Pinewood, liatrix, ambreine, musk
Ayala also says that "Narkiss" means narcissus in the Hebrew language.
This is a big-hearted, green, aromatic scent. Dusky, earthy, exotic, unusual. It brings to mind some other of AM's green scents, such as Rainforest.
There is a spicy note, somewhat like cinnamon. A petrochor note from the so-called "stone tincture" (fossilized scat). A sort of wild mint/camphor and hay note from the liatrix (which is a source of coumarin). And something like tobacco leaf in the dry-down.
I know that AM makes a lot of her own tinctures, and this is an unconventional and intriguing brew. Those who appreciate Slumberhouse, OLO and O'Driu will like this.
Not sweet, and not floral. At times, it seems like a rich masculine fougere of the 80's. At other times, it seems utterly new and almost indescribable.
Hint of animalic twang from the stone tincture in the dry-down.
Definitely worth a look-see for those who like something off the beaten track.
