Actually your post made me re-check my samples, and I was mistaken... its Lux and Amyitis
that I am finding challenging (particularly Amyitis), not Jabu. Jubu is a stunner! Amyitis
has a rather complex plastic/burnt/electrical-wire sort of vibe that takes some getting used to.Carnation
is actually a very beautiful scent - perhaps not as "peppery" as real carnations, but it still captures that husky floral perfume that I have come to associate with the flower.Nuit Noire
I am a huge fanboy of! The cardamom is front and center, but as the scent shifts into its heart and base, it transitions into something of immeasurable beauty!Chamarré
has also this feeling of early 20th century opulence - not unlike the vintage offerings from houses like Guerlain and Dior.Lux
is suprising to my nose, in that it is a vastly different style
of perfume to the others in the line. Its playful lemon sorbet opening is vibrant and spirited, and it dries down to a remarkable vanilla/musk. I feel like Lux perhaps transitions the least from top to bottom.Jabu
is a beauty whose orange/ylang opening accords are radiant... its dark plum accord adds a richness, and I love the creamy tonka in there too.Oiro
has a stunning
floral opening - the sweet pea and jasmin are divin
e. I really enjoy the journey this one takes into the rich base of immortelle, musc and amber.
