There is a shortage of sophisticated osmanthus perfumes. The soliflores are trendy now, but they always make the easy allusion to tea. 1000 is very oriental in the asian sense, even if it is a classical chypre. The song Hong Kong Garden by Siouxie and the Banshees comes to mind, Marie Antoinette soundtrack and everything. This is a dark, glamorous and exotic scent, certainly not accessible but pleasant. Although many people associate civet with old ladies, it is used exquisitely, giving this perfume great staying power and sillage. The osmanthus combined with the aldehydes and civet create a brandied peach accord. I really enjoy all the herbs in it, as well; cool, slightly medicinal with pronounced indoles.
