    Wood & Absinth by Mark Buxton

    Wood & Absinth comes across to me as quite translucent. I really don’t smell citrus, sage, or anise. I will take the word of whoever supplied the pyramid that the floral note I smell is jasmine. But I do get definite woodnotes: rosewood and vetiver… with an occasional airy shadow of absinth circulating through now and then. These woodnotes make up almost the total fragrance for me. It’s a lovely fragrance… soft …too soft. I can barely smell it on my skin, but I do get delicate, wispy ends of sillage now and then for an hour or two.

    I like this the idea of this fragrance very much: It has the notes and the timbre and the ambiances that I love… I just wish it would come across with a stronger presence for me.
