    Teak Wood by Ava Luxe

    Teakwood opens with a burst of bergamot before moving into a floral (violet with a touch of rose) heart. There are woods and a little castoreum in this composition but these notes are overpowered by the floral notes (especially the violet) and take a few hours to really come to the fore. Longevity is good 8+ hours and Teakwood projects off the skin well. This is a decent fragrance, although it seems a little unbalanced to my nose. For a scent that is advertised as a woody fragrance, wood only seems to be a bit player that provides a foundation for a predominantly floral composition.
