    Default Review of Idole de Lubin

    Just recieved my sample of this from first in fragrance. Idole opens up with Rum and saffron,there is also bitter orage peel and black cumin. The orange note evades me,the black cumin is only just noticeable at the start of the mid notes very subdued nicely done. Woody aromas start the mid notes, burnt ebony with a hint of sweetness form the sugercane.Basenotes of leather and red sandlewood finish of this fine dark oriental fragrance perfectly.And the bottle looks amazing.

    Glad you like it! I was one of the 1st people in the UK to get a bottle just after it was launched.

    Good to see that you are local, Womble. I was in Bradford yesterday for a meeting.

    Great scent but dissapears quickly on me. I have to reaply often to pull this one off. Padpardascha reminds me of Idole as well and lasts just as long on me. Meaning breafly.

    Great review womble. I really enjoyed the sample that Lubin sent me, and hope to get a bottle of this some time.

    My own (very short) review of Idole is on the Basenotes Idole page http://www.basenotes.net/ID26125169.html.

    remy- I do not see the connection between this and M7. Can you explain what you smell that is comparable?

    I wore Idole last week, from a sample. I like it, though I wish it was just a little richer in the base. It does last quite long on me, though without any sillage, a pleasant high-pitched sweetness wafts up regularly for hours. This one is never on ebay, unfortunately.

    There is something "deep" and "dark" in both, maybe warm notes from woods...
