Sikkim reminds me of the expression, ďto fly off the handle.Ē Sikkimís escalation is so quick that it doesnít even seem like progression, just the flip from something calm to something disturbed. The first sniff sends you reeling. Sikkim is fast, rough and, I donít know---I guess abundant. Itís just everything at once. Itís a heavy, raspy green chypre, but, although light on amber sweetness, itís also a big spicy oriental with an almost medicinal vibe. Itís a great, fun ride, and in the end itís an animalic green chypre with a dusting of spiced sweetness. Built from so many drydown materials, this scent has remarkable endurance, but (blessedly) that quality lovely of many stark chypres---it becomes a skin/body scent in the drydown.
