Djin by Michael Storer.
My sample was "empty" so I added a few drops of Everclear, waited awhile for it to soak up the last of the fragrant molecules on the dipstick and glass, and then got another wearing out of it.
I think going to such lengths with a sample means it's a pretty safe bet I need a bottle!

Hmm, I don't know how to condense all of that down into something that would actually give you an idea of how it smells. Imagine Yellow Sea minus the heavier incense tones (but keep the sheer animalic element) and cross it with.. hmm, the freshness and hints of roses and fruits in Aventus (and also its smooth muskiness, although the musk here is far different), and add a bit of that 80s dirty 'man musk' to it - just enough that it's noticeable but never over the top as so many 80s scents were prone to be. Plus a bit of an ozonic vibe early on - but a very smooth ozone and not at all the typical 'watery notes' in so many scents.
It's interesting because of its contrasts and unexpected juxtapositions: light and fresh but animalic and dirty. Fruity and sweet but funky and masculine. An odd scent, for sure.

Storer's site is down for maintenance/renovation although he's supposedly going to be bringing it back soon(ish) and I believe is going to have a new release or two, as well.
I sent him an email on Friday (email@example.com) but haven't heard anything yet - I plan on picking up a bottle direct from him as it not only pads his wallet instead of the middle man's, but should also be a fresher batch. Note, there's an old EdT version out there and that is not what you want.
I think The Posh Peasant has more recent bottles of it - 1-3 years old - as they are showing the newer rectangular bottle design that he switched to about 3 years ago (if I recall - it may have been even more recent than that).
