Reviews of Liquo

A box of tonka beans having been my first introduction to the joys of perfumery some 60 years ago, I have remained enamoured of coumarinic scents ever since. This one is rich, nutty, suggestive of hay and tobacco flavours, and generally delightful.

Ouzo, Sambuca, yum! An immediate shot of licorice liqueur followed by water-logged straw. What an invigorating slap to the nostrils! Lavender and violet rise up combing with the licorice and straw. Anise and coumarin later appear giving Liquo an unusual, artistic presence. The wet straw always wants to antagonize. It adds a urine undertone. I would certainly not wear this with any frequency in public but, I am amused by this fragrance.

I get a hint of nut. Toasted nuts. A hint of smoke, too. The straw note goes on and on. I still get a whiff of licorice now and then. Nutty-straw odor lasts.

Licorice and violet are the first thought than go through my mind when the first molecules enter my nasal cavity, and fairly soon aniseed is added to it. This results in a soft and slightly sweet mix, with whiffs of lemon adding some brighter moments.

The second stage adds more floral elements, mainly a restrained lavender as well as a vanilla impression with touches of a gentle spiciness thrown in.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and four hours of longevity, with the last hour or two being very close to my skin.

A pleasant autumnal scent for days and evenings, with clear nods into the direction of the gourmand section of the olfactory spectrum. The main strength is the gery good quality of the ingredients; the main weaknesses are the thinning of the intensity of the notes in the second half of the development of this composition, as well as the limited performance. Still, overall a good product: 3.25/5.

It is hard to find fragrances that work well in the hot tropical climate of Singapore, at least for a professional setting. Certain mainstays of Western perfumery like patchouli or oakmoss do very strange things. Very linear florals fare better, but can be a bit boring. Middle-Eastern powerhouses are too much.

Liquo is, to me, exactly between hay and liquorice. It is a great match. Liquorice alone would be too sharp, too acidic, too sweet. Hay absolute is close enough to blend well, whilst giving it dryness and depth. The remaining ingredients are the canvas on which this accord is painted.

It does not work on humid days as the hay can suggest a mouldy feel, but if the sun is out it is an enjoyable and original scent for more formal occasions to stand out from fougere variations without offending your interlocutors.

Projection is relatively poor, so this one needs a liberal application. Longevity is fine, up to the next day depending on quantity.

A demonstration of how the dry fennel-anise-licorice palette blends seamlessly with hay notes. Liquo is like opening a jar of fennel seeds and getting the unmistakeable slightly salty tang of their pretty distinctive scent. All other elements are firmly in the backdrop. This will be a fix for those seeking a big licorice high (fortunately the stuff only numbs the mouth, not the nose) or a blast of coumarin, but I wanted it to be a bit more than that and it wasn’t.
The progression is from a huge scattering of anise/fennel on a bed of hay towards the deeper, somewhat stickier licorice, with the merest hints of vetiver and lavender peeking through.
The liquid is cat pee yellow – which is fun.
