Today's SOTD has been my first test of Natori
From the rose and plum listed in the notes, I was expecting a huge Bulgarian rose/fruit stinker a la Bulgari Rose, but the plum is clearly in charge, with the rose lending a subtle floral quality and some aldehydes brightening it up. While this recipe is similar to the top of Feminite du Bois, it somehow feels much darker.
Also of note is that the suede musk in the base comes through right from the start. As the morning wore on, the suede got more buttery (and I mean that literally - at times, I smelled butter). Later, the rose has largely faded and the suede has remained buttery. It has become clear that it was the black patchouli that was darkening everything - it's still giving a dark sweetness to the base.
Overall, this is a shade more feminine than I enjoy wearing, but it's quite nice. One could argue that this has been influenced by Lutens or Feminite du Bois (with the plum/aldehyde top). It also manages to use fruit and floral elements without becoming a typical fruity floral. It's strong (I'm only wearing one light spray because I'm at work). I'd recommend it to fans of FdB, the dried-fruit Lutens, or the patchouli-heavy Tom Fords (Noir do Noir, etc).
