Reviews of Volutes Eau de Toilette

Honey and tobacco ... ho-hum.

22nd October, 2020
Opens up a a sweet earthy smooth honeyed tobacco with a strong piney effect...get a strong impression of hay...very pleasant...just a little pepper zing...tobacco/hay mix sweetened and flavored with honey/resins...ghostly images of fruits and flowers way in the background...kinda kind of drydown with an awesome 4 resin smelling control...

Iris pops straight away. Stale tobacco. A kind of human body-sweat odor, that leaves almost as fast as it appeared. Honey & iris remain in the picture. Then, a slight industrial machinery note. Strange. Volutes seems to become a darker mood.

But then, the iris rises up and lightens this again. It's like an iris smoke, with a pinch of tobacco, that swirls like a swirling smoke cloud. This is an odd one, the way it plays out on my skin.

3 stars.

This is a relatively pretty fragrance, just a little too powdery for my taste. Floral, incense, tobacco with strong honey and powder influences. Something in it has a synthetic quality.
Sillage is soft (skin scent). Longevity is moderate at about 4-5 hours (moderate considering it's a toilette concentration).
Overall, a pretty fragrance good for Fall or Winter. Warm and inviting if you like a powdery, honeyed, incense.

I can't identify the notes listed, and that's why I find it great. I smell only a powdery and smoky amber, slightly masculine but well wearable for a woman. Longevity is very good, sillage is good.

Note: Review is of the EdT

Volutes EdT is an easy to wear spicy oriental featuring a central accord of pipe tobacco drizzled with honey over a resinous foundation. The good thing about Volutes is that the blend is coherent, and it has a very restrained sweetness. Volutes also features a dry, powdery iris that renders it similar to Dior Homme in some aspects. It lacks the sweetness and makeup aspects of Dior Homme Intense, and the leathery nuances of Dior Homme EdT. It also reminds me of Versace's Dreamer, minus the incoherent and slightly strange opening, and of other tobacco fragrances like Tobacco Vanille and Chergui. However, Volutes is temperamentally most similar to Dior Homme EdT among these, given its versatility and accommodating nature - in that it never wears the wearer and is always an accessory.

Volutes wears close to skin, forming a thin puffy cloud of spiced, fruity tobacco amid wisps of light smoke. It is a pleasant enough perfume when the mercury starts to fall, though it is not striking or startling. Though I prefer wrapping myself up in Chergui at such times, Volutes is a solid recommendation - especially if one is looking for something modern, subtle and elegant.


A note on the EdP: This one smells very similar to the EdT with the tobacco a little subdued, lasts just as long but has even less sillage and projection. The EdT is clearly the more attractive choice between the two, at least for me.
