I almost have no words to describe Coromandel.
Im about to say this is the most beautiful fragrance i've ever smelt.
The patchouli is very well blended with benzoin and the result is a wonderful sweetness.
The incense note is very light and gives it a nice depth.
The opening may be a little harsh, but as it dries down the sweetness starts in a creamy way.
Here again the comparisions are inevitable.
While Montale Patchouli Leaves is more linear, Coromandel is much more a complex and well blended scent.
While Borneo 1932 is raw, Coromandel is soft.
In my opinion Borneo 1932 is an "unfinished" version of Coromandel.
Sheldrake finished the job that had been already began and together with Polge created this beautiful composition.
Definetely Coromandel is a piece of art. Masterpiece. Unique. Addictive.
