What's it like?
The Note opens with fresh and spicy effluve of Sicilian Lemon, Egyptian Geranium and Moroccan Saffron, that give a mystic and oriental aspect to the chord.
The heart is characterized by a full flower note of Indian Jasmin and a rich note of Arican Olibanum, all is done vibrant by a spicy note of Cumin.
The bottom note is an intense bouquet of woods note of Jawa Vetyver, Atlas Cedarwood and Indian Santal, all is embraced by a warm and confortable notes of Amber and Siam Benjoin.
Very similar to cones and aromatic woods in the fireplace.
It sounds like it would be excellent! The amber and benzoin concern me a little if they try to make it too pretty at the end of all those oudish ingredients. But after trying so many "oud" fragrances and only finding a few I think are exceptional enough for me, I would try another one.
Do yo like it? Does it compare to anything else?
current rotation: • mugler cologne • bergamote 22 • galloway • morning chess • le labo the noir 29 • smn patchouli • suedois • menthe fraiche • extreme blue • m/mink • eau d'orange verte • javanese patchouli
I like it very much, and I'm not tired of it after many days..... when I spray it on my wrist, seems to stay on high mountains in front of a fireplace. The perfect "resinous" scent!
Two more things: it's pretty affordable ( about 45 euros/55 dollars 100ml) in comparison to other "niche" fragrances;
and it's very persistent since it's very concentrated (eau de parfum) . Seems almost an oil sprayed directly on the skin
( duration: at least 8 hours )
Very similar, but much cheaper, to: Scent Bar 300 (here: http://www.fleurluxuryliving.com/e_s...00-parfum.html)
