    Default House of matriarch orca and eagle wood opinions?

    Curious if anyone has encountered these and if they have impressions. I was able to get a 50ml for a steal and jumped on them blind buy. I'd love to hear your impressions of them if you have any or what your favorite HOM's are

    I have Devotion and Antimony on the way! Devotion is my favorite that I’ve tried. Upfront it smells like a less thick TF vert d Encens, but has a different drydown of incense that I really enjoy.

    Love most House of Matriarch scents, especially Black No 1, Destrier, and Epiphany. Orca is a bit challenging for some(all the salty natural ambergris) and eaglewood challenging for others(natural Oud) but I think they’re both beautiful.

    Not a comparison I would have expected. Very interesting.

    I'm just starting to like ouds, indian(fecal usually) is still a little rough for me. But from what I understand eaglewood is supposed to be a very nice less offensive oud. And I've really grown to love a nice ambergris. This will be my first white other than gaea.

    Right, I never would have either as I own a FB of vert d Encens, but I get the similarities early....then not so much.

    Do you own a bottle of devotion? I'd love to purchase a small sample off you to give it a shot. I've heard lots of good things about it, butni couldn't pass up 75% off eaglewood.

    Would you agree that this is one of the cleaner oud scents available?

    I didn't get any oud in this one at all, just ambergris and spices.

    That's good to hear. I generally don't enjoy barnyard style oud so I might look into this one for learning purposes.

    Some new impressions

    I hadn’t ever smelled Black no. 1, but to me it smells a lot like PdM Habdan. For some reason these HOM offerings are reminding me of other scents.

    Antimony smells like a green LDDM! And I mentioned before Devotion initially smelled very similar to Vert d Encens, but now my FB actually doesn’t give me that impression. Must have just been the dab on sample I have.

    All of these I like a lot though!

    I enjoy Orca. Also Kazimi, a wonderful dusty rose, and Sex Magic. But Black No. 1 is my favorite from the house.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.
