Reviews of Y06-S

There is one review of Y06-S.
That pretty Califonia jasmine that smells like artificial banana, mixed with actual artificial banana flavorant - that's my first impression. It's quickly joined by the jarring smell of amyl nitrate (aka poppers, the inhalable party drug) and the ozonic smell of overheating electronics. And there's a poopy dirt undertone in there as well, and the whole thing smells like it's sitting next to a burning computer, smoky and poisonous. Given time, it fades to sweaty cumin and sweet dirt, with the banana reduced to a generic sweetness, so it's pretty much just sweaty, funky, smoky dirt.

So does it smell good? Intentionally not in the beginning, and sort of for the rest of the day, depending on your opinion of animalic dirt. Because the banana theatrics seem to be there only temporarily just for shock value on top, I have a nitpick with Y06-S: It's trying so hard to be avant garde that it comes off as desperate more than artful, like someone painting "This Is ART!" on a canvas and trying to sell it for millions of dollars - simultaneously trying too hard, but not hard enough. But really, based on smell alone, this is creative and interestingly executed, and I enjoy the animalic dirt drydown, so I'm voting thumbs up despite my qualms about whether or not this achieves the level of artiness it strives for.
