    Yes, this. It's one that deserves more love than it gets. Smells like a beautiful, clean horse and leather saddle - in the best possible way, of course.

    Bruno Fazzolari Lampblack was my initial suggestion, but I see that's been mentioned.

    I'll add Pekji Odoon (woody), Pekji Ruh (Spice/Tea/Rose) and Pekji Eau Mer (strange in a goodway jasmine aquatic.)

    KOUROS is the most unique, abstract fragrance ever. I don't know if it can be labeled artistic but it surely is ART.
