With so much turmoil for many of us it is nice to hear about the mothers-to-be as that is a happy thing, except for the morning sickness.
Rainy day at Stately Somerville Manor and I wanted a pinch of spice for the day.
Odin 01 Nomad
There has been a tradition of menswear brands branching to fragrance which starts with Ralph Lauren and Polo all the way to the present day and Ed Hardy. Even smaaler stores are doing it as Zara’s fragrance collection is a good example. Now a small menswear store in Soho in New York has created their own brand of fragrance. The store is Odin and the one of their first three release in 2009 was 01 Nomad.
Nomad as the name implies is meant to evoke the wandering nomads and in particular those who ply the spice routes. As I am a lover of spicy fragrances this was the one fragrance I expected to resonate with me. Nomad imposes its spices over a traditional oriental architecture and isn’t particularly ground breaking.
The top of Nomad begins with a great juniper note combined with bergamot and citrus. There have been a number of men’s fragrances that have been using juniper effectively early on in the development and Nomad is one of those. The heart is a smooth tonka paired with a clean cedar and pinch of pepper. The base deepens the woodiness as sandalwood along with a warm musk close out Nomad’s journey on my skin.
Nomad has average longevity and average sillage.
Nomad is not anything new by anyone’s stretch of the imagination but the ingredients used are good quality; and for those who like their orientals with just a pinch of spice Nomad just might be the fragrant journey for you.
Have a Tasteful Tuesday everyone.
