Wearing a sample of...Arso
I have had this sample sitting on my sample pile, patiently waiting for me to wear it. It was, from reading everyone's comments since it was released, everything that I love about fragrances: Woody, sweet, smoky. And I am happy to report it completely meets my expectations. It's A-MAZING! Gosh, I'm so loving this. The smoky element in this is just so unique. You think 'How many different ways can a perfumer interpret smoke?'. Apparently, many ways. I remember when I was at the CB I Hate Perfume shop in Brooklyn, with BN member Kevin Guyer, we smelled all of his smoke absolutes...I think there was 6 or 7 of them. I loved ALL of them. The smoke note in Arso
reminds me of one of them - for lack of a better description is smells like a marshmallow that you've roasted over the fire. That smell! Amazing, it just keeps peeking out around the pine needles, sap, resins. I'm totally enjoying this.
