    Look forward to trying this at some point. You've gotta hand it to Roja, he doesn't stint on the ingredients! The last few out of the gate have all been favourably compared with some of the Guerlain heavy-hitters . . . good enough for me.

    Seriously wonderful stuff. I wore it on one arm for a day - lucky old me. There's a big puff of saffron in the opening and I immediately thought of MFK Oud, but this more or less instantly dissolves into an animalic oud - can't quite put my finger on it, but animalic like very freshly cut, slightly rotten oak wood, not like a barnyard - and a brutally damp and funky patchouli. Which softens - or relaxes - with a progression of notes: woody spices, neroli, amber, until the oud and patchouli return for the dry down. Hopefully it hasn't spoiled me for perfumes I'll actually be able to afford in this reincarnation...!

    J'ai reçu une bouteille.

    I am quite surprised by this one. It was not what i expected... In a sense it feels new but not unsimilar to some ouds I've tried. It is very reminiscent of Mona's oud without the osmanthus, resinous and sweet light the opening of jubilation without the raspberries, and finally an almost black afgano funk. I am still mixed in how I feel about it
