Reviews of Aqua Regia

Yes, there's some green bitterness (I find it woody rather than green) but it's sweetened with dry fruit and a dirty but well hidden oud and softened by a creamy vanilla and a powdery rose. There's something smoky, probably the patchouli. Incredibly good and different.

First couple of minutes smells just like SoOud Nur , then it takes a turn and starts doing its own thing...turns very green with an aroma that seems to be a mix of garden and kitchen herbs...the rose is discreet and floating around in the greenery...i find the oud to be somewhat tame and not in your face either...an Oriental Chypre...not a great fragrance , but not too bad either...rather wearable...rose and oud gather a little strength throughout the progression...

Some pleasures are difficult to explain to others who don’t get them – such as my fondness for bitter greens. I can wax lyrical about the feeling of connection to nature such notes invariably summon in me, the joy of being able to inhale something that smells as if it could be potentially poisonous, etc – but some, such as my significant other, just screw up their noses at them. Aqua Regia majors on such notes and if you love them it’s a must try. Imagine the primary green of Diptyque’s L'Ombre Dans L'Eau crossed with the soil-sprinkled iteration of Tauer’s (sadly discontinued) Pentachords Verdant and you’re getting the kind of deep green conjured here. The notes disclose only eucalyptus as the source of it – but there’s none of the associated medicinal quality.
Intriguingly the sugar drop sweetness of a supporting rose note only intensifies the bitterness (much as in the Diptyque) and the citrus in the blend is so smooth it lifts imperceptibly. Put this against a backdrop of dark and mouldy wood and we’re surely talking some kind of altered state. A perfume that one feels one should be able to perceive at the back of one’s throat rather than via the nostrils (but offer thanks that that is not the case).

This fragrance smells nothing like the top notes in its fragrance tree. It smells more like there is apricot and other fruits instead of rose. I also don't detect any oud. This a well blended fragrance that will last and last! A great offering for spring and summer that won't disappoint. the best part of this scent is the blending of vetiver/eucalyptus with the fruit notes. Well done!!
