    Also received my FB of Ma Nishtana, so I’m thrilled about that!
    Congrats. Ma Nishtana is magnificent.

    Did someone say 'cinnamon'?

    Yep, not heavy on it, but it’s nice to me! It’s also pairing with another sweet note that I can’t quite pick out. It’s not honey to me, but maybe dates??

    I got both my bottles of Mirga and Mandodari today without ever having smelled either (or Morah for that matter.) Both are magnificent!
    Mandodari startled me at first - to me the trinity of black pepper, cumin and coffee all float up top, and are somewhat aggressive at first. Beneath that I get the fatty aldehydes, sandalwood and civet working as a kind of transitional element between the champaca, frangipani and gardenia and in the dry-down the ash and oakmoss.
    What this translates to for me is another of Prin's amazing musky/sweet-floral works (to me alongside Mandarava and Bat II) but here given a more aggressively spicy character. Prin is THE quintessential Southeast Asian perfumer in that he is capable of bringing about the musky, animallic, but still sweet character of the floral and vegital regions popularly found there and utilizing them to create what should have been a no-brainer in the community for balsamic-animallic yellow floral works.

    As for Mirga, what everyone is saying is right on the money - this thing is an amazing re-presentation of deer musk, here tucked between lime, fir vetiver, grass, cypriol alongside more bitter, woody and resinous characters which brightly features the furriness and muskiness of the deer while retaining the forest which houses him. Each note her abstractly bleeds from some facet of the deer in a seamless way which finds, at some level, the deer BECOMING the forest itself. It is one of the best deer musk fragrances I have ever smelled despite containing no actual deer musk! It's hard to say anything bad about it because it's so freaking balanced and polished that it really becomes kind of a monolithic (not in a bad way) pyramid. I could potentially use a little more lime and fir, but that's not a problem with the fragrance, but just a problem with me. :P

    Nice. I was wearing Ma Nishtana the other day and it just blew me away. How does Mriga compare to Areej le Dore's Russian Musk and Siberian Musk?

    It is closer to Siberian Musk than Russian Musk.

    One afternoon I had Siverian Musk on one arm and Prin on the other. There are strong similarities, especially in the opening. But as things progress Prin has a fairly prominent incense in the background.

    But just as Siberian Musk and Russian Musk are slightly different takes on musk that are both worth having (IMHO), Prin is a slightly different take again on a similar theme

    I received my bottle of Ma Nishtana today and this was one of the samples included with it. I agree with your entire post. Tom Yum has a stunning open indeed that had me in complete disbelief as to just how good this stuff smells, but sadly due to it being 100% natural lacks staying power. It won’t stop me from surely buying a bottle, but with some added synthetics to improve performance this could have gone from excellent to near-perfect.

    I agree with this, though the potency is not very bad unlike some Fort and Manle fragrances.

    Ive been super slow in getting into this brand..... has anyone tried Narasimha, and if so, impressions? I had thought it was sold out, but is still available on Prim's website

    I’ve got Narahimsa and it’s interesting. The notes all kind of melt into each other. The dry down is a little more synthetic than you’d expect but it’s still nice. Not my favorite attar that I own but it is a nice Oud/leather/incense mix. I don’t perceive a lot of the florals.

    I had a feeling Tom Yum would be a poor performer. Prin's new releases were added and then shortly after pulled from Fragrantica so I'm not sure when I'll give him another shot. I do need that longevity.

    I’m pretty sure his new releases are up at Fragrantica.

    I see they've moved the listings from Pryn to Prin. Mandodari may be the one then if it's an updated Morah. I still have a Pryn discovery set. I gave Scentbar NYC a call and they have them all. I'll finally pay them a visit then.

    I own a few from Prin (from Strangers, Burning Ben and SM Cafe, and Mandarava from Parfum Prissana).

    Today, I sampled Anatolia, Ma Nishtana, and Mandodari.

    Upon first smell Mandodari was my favorite, but reminded me too much of other stuff I own to warrant a bottle --- but a few minutes into the fragrance and it took a different turn and became different enough to justify. This will definitely be my next full bottle purchase.

    Also really enjoyed Ma Nishtana, but it is getting drowned out by the two scents around it on my arm. For those of you who own this: how is the projection and longevity?

    Anatolia is interesting and I can't quite figure out my thoughts on it. I like it, but I own other dried fruit heavy fragrances that fill that niche for me. But then again, I am lacking in leathers as many don't work on my skin. Not quite sure if bottle worthy or not, though it is enjoyable. Will have to test this one again solo, perhaps. If anyone here has it, do you get a lot of wear out of it?

    Longevity and projection are pretty much perfect for me on Ma Nishtana.

    Guys, apart from Mriga, what other musky fragrance from Prin/Prisanna/Strangers Perfumery that are worth trying?

    Thanks.

    Longevity is about 10 hours for me, which is very good for my skin. Projection is not massive but the scent is always noticeable throughout. It is a fantastic fragrance overall, highly recommended.

    10 hours is great for my skin too and this is exactly what I look for. I don't always need a powerhouse (for nights out, maybe, but not the rest of the time) but I do want it to be noticeable to me throughout the day.

    +1 Great performer but not that versatile as a regular player. Still a keeper if price is not an issue.
