    Default NEW - NOUN by Bogue Profumo

    Luckyscent says,

    "The Scoop

    When a perfumer as uniquely talented and respected as Antonio Gardoni offers to create a special fragrance for your anniversary, you don't waste a single moment saying YES. And honestly, we'd have been satisfied with an update of a previous work, or even an unfinished idea. Instead, Antonio delivered a true labor of love, a dynamic, delicious, utterly delightful scent that straddles lines between bright and resinous, sweet and spicy, rich and aromatic in that utterly unique way that only Bogue Profumo can produce.

    Built atop a massive dose of Siamese and Sumatran benzoin, infused with exquisitely high-quality Indian patchouli, loaded with lush florals and exotic woods– stop us if we're gushing– NOUN is made truly distinctive with a proprietary combination of herbs and spices (including mustard seed, black pepper, buchu, rosemary and basil) that infuse a delectably mouthwatering element to the proceedings; a savory gourmand, if you will. The results speak for themselves: NOUN is endlessly sophisticated but not overwhelming, delicious but not reductive, and completely, endlessly captivating. We're unbelievably grateful to Antonio for gifting us this masterwork-- and when you try it, you will be too".


    Noun Notes

    Bergamot, yuzu, mandarin, petitgrain, buchu, black pepper, mint, basil, mustard seed, cassis, rosemary, ylang ylang, jasmine, rose, lavender, geranium, rosewood, labdanum, olibanum, sandalwood, benzoin, patchouli, vanilla, tonka, siam wood, vetiver, cedar

    I was seriously sampling MAAI last weekend at Scent Bar; looks like I'll need to check if they have NOUN in the store yet – if so, I'm on it like tape, as they say (sniffing, not buying (just yet) that is).

    Mustard seed? I think that's a first for me.

    Anybody else ever used mustard seed?

    I *think* I've seen it previously in a note list; possibly also from a Luckyscent product page — but I won't swear to it. I did actually get a little deja vu when I read it in the NOUN description ("Hmm, who else used that?"). Does 'that other website' have it in their Notes catalog; I've yet to check.

    First for me, too, in this context.

    Every other dish I eat at home has mustard seed in it!

    Just ordered a sample. I have Cologne Reloaded, Maai and Mem. I have a feeling they will get company.

    I received a sample of this this afternoon. I’ve given it an initial dab on the wrist and I can say I’ll need some time to really understand this one. Noun opens on my skin with a bright herbal quality, yellow-green in color. It’s slightly sharp and also has a mentholated quality to it. After a few minutes the herbs take on a much more savory quality. Kitchen spice is what comes to mind. The menthol dies down at this point in the development, thankfully. Slowly the florals show themselves, soft and only slightly sweet. I can’t identy any one floral over the other, just a soft roundness that balances and tempers the herbal, spice quality. There is something sharp, herbal, and slightly sour that I can’t identify peeking from behind the florals. Is this the mustard seed perhaps? After this, floral and spice give way to woods, an earthy patchouli, and a dark sweetness. I’m going to have to live with this one for a while and see how my thoughts and perceptions evolve beyond these first impressions. It’s not love at first sniff but there is definitely enough of interest going on to continue evaluating. It challenges me and I like that.

    Thanks for those impressions LostboyR ( awesome SotD -Tabac Tabou btw).

    I like 'herbal' and 'mentholated'. Will sample it eventually. It seems Areej le Dore's impending new releases have just cut in line and jumped the queue.

    Oh this sounds really good.

    I love my decant of Cologne Reloaded, so I have had a good first impression with this line.

    I am really enjoying the dry down. The roadblock for me is gong to be the opening.

    There is a certain 'Chinese Medicine' aspect to the opening and the mid. I get something similar in Kyoto Gyoen from Rising Phoenix. I'll have to do a side by side soon.

    I don't think you would have a problem with meaty or masculine. NOUN just really doesn't smell very good to me. Save your money and time for something else.

    While I think this would work fine on a woman, especially in the later dry down which is sweet, dark, and resinous, there is nothing delicate about this fragrance. You would really need to enjoy a medicinal, herbal vibe as, on my skin, that aspect dominates the opening and mid part of Nouns evolution.

    Interestingly enough, I don't get "meaty" from this scent but then again I do not associate some woods and smoke with meat as other seem to describe amongst other fragrances. Its a challenge that wont appeal to everyone.

    Just got my sample. A swipe on my arm and my impression was that this is a greatest hits album. I like it but will need to do a full wearing to come to a conclusion.

    Kafkaesque’s take didn’t inspire confidence. And thebeck’s experience confirmed it. That’s all I need to take this one off my sampling list. Thanks for taking one for the team.

    After a full wearing I can say that I think this is well done. I don’t sort notes or otherwise give that type of description but this one reminds me of Jules by Dior if Dior was an Italian house. It is greener and has the Bogue DNA but the aromatic aspect is similar. If my money wasn’t presently going toward ridiculously priced Oud oils I probably would have added this to my collection.

    I'm pondering whether to buy a bottle. It's my second favorite bogue after Maai. To me, it blows Mem, o/e, aeon 001 and cologne reloaded out of the water. (haven't tried Gardelia).
