    Magazine Street by Strange Invisible Perfumes

    Magazine Street opens with what I can only call a menthol or camphor note. It's a bit medicinal, but offers a unique and pleasant start to this wonderful fragrance. Light florals are introduced, possibly the magnolia accord, but I don't identify the flower itself, just a humid feel of floral over a greenish patch note. The green is a mix of the menthol, and probably the vetiver emerging. This mix provides the green to the patch's earthy vibe.

    This is a smooth, well blended fragrance. A hint of musk, and a dash of vanilla keep the smooth ride (horse drawn buggy if we imagine the namesake street) going through the end.

    To me, this is a vetiver fragrance, but one softened by it's other components and rounded to a creaminess that I enjoy very much. It's rich and heady, but very grounded and earthy.

    Easily a thumbs up. Well done!
