    Default Rrose SŤlavy

    I didn't see any thread on this, so I am opening one. Got this at Twisted lily sale.

    I was very intrigued by the dadaist background, and Turin's support. The opening is indeed a very good, complex rose. But then after I while I detect a big soapy musk that I don't really like. I wonder whether I am oversensitive to it, and others instead just continue smelling the rose.

    I'll probably test putting it on a handkerchief or the like, so as to avoid the drydown.

    Please report on this. I thought the original was entirely conceptual and not a real perfume. Interested in what it smells like.

    The actual perfume is not conceptual at all. It's a straightforward rose perfume.
    The name and descriptions are.

    I find that Turin isn't always able to pick up on soapy drydowns - I learned this after his review a long time ago about Eau de Guerlain. I found the drydown musks to be so soapy. Then I fell for it again with La Cri de la Lumiere. Beautiful top - soap all the way to the finish.

    Not blaming Turin for this - because I'm probably just hyper-sensitive to some soapy musks.
