From the initial four fragrances from this house, in the Notes de Fond (Base Notes) collection, this one stands out as unique compared to the other three. This one has a more complex, natural smell. It's less sweet, viscous, and heavy. It seems to project more than the other three. It reminds me of the smell of black tea.
This is a classic Patchouli fragrance. The earthy, dirty patchouli shines through. Oud's dirtiness is fighting for attention also, along with the Labdanum and vetiver. There is a bit too much "fighting" for attention, A few more wears before I decide if I can wear it or not. I'll say that I've never smelled such a strong natural smelling patchouli before combined with oud.
