    Idole Eau de Parfum by Lubin

    I've given myself a year to fully familiarize myself with this fragrance and I find the EdP version allows the unfolding to occur slowly, allowing the opportunity to enjoy the stages all the more but scent-wise they are about identical. This is an excellent rum/saffron boozy scent with cumin and faint citrus in the top and smoked sugar/amber in the drydown with a very chic/urban/money/classy feel to it but not in a campy or loud way. Something about it just seems incredibly refined and brilliant. It is a confident scent.

    Idole de Lubin is one of those fragrances that may seem too scary or challenging at first but give a few minutes for the booziness to soak in and warm up. This is the kind of fragrance that's 'spray and forget', you're going to get whiffs of yourself all night and it's always going to bring a smile in the back of your mind. Definitely a "night-out" scent.

    An under-appreciated classic!
