    Default Which scents have the most evolving drydowns?

    What do I mean? What scents smell 1 way at top, at middle, at base...but radically different from each other? Mind you, I'm not asking for the "best"; I'm asking for the most evolved (you don't have to like it).

    My votes:

    Clive Christian X: I love, love love this stuff. I can't help smelling myself, because it smells great but also because it smells different every 5 minutes.

    Caron's Yatagan: I tried this recently from a generous sample I received in a swap. This is one that evolves a lot...but I don't think I like it. However, this scent is hard to describe because it changes a lot and is very long lasting. Its almost as if I used two different colognes altogether; one at the start, one at the finish.

    One fragrance that seems to intrigue me with its dry-down. It's called 3. Yes number 3 and it's by Damien Bash.
    The fragrance is like an odyssey. The dry-down phase itself is in chapters and cantos.
    The finale of the final stanza in the final canto in the final chapter is and an accord of sandalwood and myrrh. WOW.

    Santal Noble. I've always been impressed with the complexity, substance, and character of the MPG line and Santal Noble exhibits all of those qualities. Smells sublty different from one wearing to the next. Rich, multi-layered, elegant, warm, sensual, and a pleasure to wear.

    Cherqui went from something quite green and bright on me to something resembling the drydown of Hypnotic Poison (I'll qualify that by saying HP isn't very sweet on me).

    Ava Luxe Madame X also has a great development.

    No doubt: Dzing! Animalistic sweat, sawdust, benzoin, caramel... not my cup of tee, but I do admire its evolving.

    You meant Lucifer No. 3 , right?

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
