I can hardly wait to get my hands of a full bottle of 04 Petrana from this series. I got an official sample from luckyscent.com, and was mightily impressed with the incredibly dark, beautiful, and stunning purple iris opening. It seems to fade after a while, but there is always a lingering melody of that beautiful iris.... This is similar to another thread from yesterday regarding sad fragrances, etc. This could possibly fall in that category, but it's more like the legend (or is it fact?) of L van Beethoven shaking his fist at the thunderstorm at the end of his life. There is no spirit of 'the lost soul' in this fragrance! Gorgeous masculine floral of the highest order, IMO.
