Beautiful alchemy of Jasmine, Ambergris and Vanilla. Awakens on the skin.
From sniffing the top of a decant, I was worried - it smelled like burning tyres! On the skin, it is much more wearable and less screechy. It opens with a very rich jasmine note, with the ambergris (which I suspect is causing the rubber smell) settling into the background, where it re-emerges in occasional wafts. This is a very lavish perfume, and beautifully made, but something about it doesn't work for me/my skin chemistry.
It’s perfection in a bottle.
I absolutely love this ambery, animalic spin on Jasmine. It opens strongly floral, but is a lovely unisex amber in the dry-down. It reminds me of the jasmine blossoms in my childhood garden, and it has quickly become one of my all-time favorite fragrances. Very photorealistic jasmine in the opening which settles down into a subtly animalic amber. Stunning work.
I like that this fragrance was exactly what it proclaimed to be. The dry down smells like glorious copulation, there is no other way to say it. If a date started in a field of white flowers and ended in an orgasm this is what it would smell like.
