League of Cycloöctadiene Isomer Aestheticists
- Feb 27, 2008
The bottle aesthetic didn't do much for me and insofar as the description, it sounds more like dups of already great fragrances I own. Pass.
The bottles are a bit "B&BW+", IMO. The packaging is nice, but feels a bit "start-up" at the same time. I don't mind that - new niche brands are kind of exciting in that way.
I do get that you're taking a pass here. I have found that I have to be very selective on "new houses" just to keep the hobby reasonable. Were I not intrigued by this one for isiosyncratic industry-curious reasons, I'd be much more hesitant to jump in.
That said, I am enjoying Terra Nova quite a bit. It dries down really well, getting better and more nuanced as it goes. Whereas TdH EIV seemed to get drier and scratchier with time, this one stays very pleasant and balanced. It leaves a good sillage that I like. I'm not at all familiar with this perfumer's work for PdM. Kinda thinking I should get some samples.
