    Default Mother - Earth Aromatic by Opus Oils

    A fellow Basenoter sent me a sample of Mother by Opus Oils and wanted to know my opinion.

    WOW! This stuff blows your mind from first whiff. A very intoxicating boozy chocolaty fig comes roaring out with room filling sillage. Not to be worried, it calms down and behaves beautifully. This isn't a full blown gourmand, it's a quasi gourmand with major earthy notes to keep it in check. It does keep that edible quality without being sugary or sweet.

    Great drydown with notes like agarwood, patchouli, wild roses, and other earthy delights

    This is a unisex frag IMO, and can be worn by anyone.

    Everyone knows I don't buy bottles anymore because I'm retired, but if I wasn't I would be buying at least one bottle of Mother. $75.00 for a one ounce bottle. An absolute steal for the quality and art that's in a bottle of Mother.

    I didn't really give it enough emphasis. May I direct you to a video that mirrors my thoughts. Dan is not over rating this gem - Mother is a winner.

    This is a great frag. I bought a sample from Opus Oils and as soon as it came I tried it and turned around and bought it. Very long lasting. One spray is perfect.

    I see that the scent is sold in oil or alcohol - which version are you guys wearing?

    I purchased the alcohol. This fragrance had amazing longevity. One spray can last 24+ on clothing and you continue to get bursts of the scent throughout the day.

    This one was a favorite for me this winter

    I just got a sample that arrived yesterday and wore it last night. While I really have not given it enough of a proper wearing on skin to draw any final conclusions, the open is quite potent and very gourmand to my nose. It is very innovative and I can't think of anything smelling quite like it. The fragrance becomes a bit less gourmand and more earthy as time passes (which is the part so far I prefer). On initial wearing I am not sure if Mother is really my kind of scent (as gourmands are not my thing) but there is absolutely no denying the quality or innovation, IMO. More wearings are necessary to really give it a fair shot, but semi-gourmand fans should indeed take note.

    Love this one too - I just posted about the entire Earth collection, fantastic fantastic fragrances - mind blown!

    I love the opening of Mother - it almost reminds me of Pulp (Byredo) with a big pineapple/berry smell that slowly morphs into a fig out of nowhere. Really gorgeous.

    This was certainly a dark horse, out of nowhere this one comes along and boom, great and interesting fig based scent as others have described. Great longevity and good projection to boot.
