THIS Do Son (the EDP) nearly had me running and screaming from Do Son (both the EDP and EDT). Thankfully, someone offered me a sample of the EDT, and my relationship with Do Son was salvaged - they really are two different scents - at least to my nose.
The EDP is a juggernaut of a tuberose and is nearly assaultive in its march up my nostrils. The other notes are normally wonderful - particularly jasmine - yet none seem to play quite well together - more like an assigned group project in middle school.
If the EDP doesn't thrill you, try the EDT - and believe it or not it lasts - I can still get some whiffs of the spray I placed on my left wrist last night. For an EDT, that speaks volumes!
A draw back to Jasmine Indol just about saves this scent from the Chalk of Orange Blossom and Creamy Tuberose Suffocation.A background of scratchy Wood cuts through some, however a quick scrub and spritz of Sarrasins fills my lungs and brings me back to the Light.
Do Son makes something fantastic with tuberose: it's fresh, not sweet. It has acidity. It's nearly marine, salty. There are other white flowers, like lily of the valley. Longevity and sillage are good! I think I'll try to get a full bottle.
The opening goes straight into what is the core note of this whose creation: a tuberose that is not somber, fat and waxy, but is more on the brighter and lighter side. Added componeents are a nice orange blossom with some rose, and that all is underlined by a good lashing of benzoin; this altogether transiently takes on whiffs of a lipstick characteristic at times.
The middle note that is most evident is a slightly rainy pepper impression, and in the base a white musk is appearing very faintly in the background.
I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and six hours of longevity on my skin. Overall well made but a touch unexciting, it just crosses the line to a positive score by the skin of it's teeth. Nice for a spring day. 3/5.
Opens with a big floral note that reminds me of when I walk into a florist shop. It seems to be more of a mix of floral than any particular floral note. There are subtle floral changes in the drydown, but it stays all flower shop, IMO. A nice scent, but definitely not something a man should wear. I want something more masculine. Neutral.
Do Son is a tuberose 'soliflore' for those who don't care for big white floral soliflores. This fragrance slightly shifts niche, aimed at those who want more green and air in a BWF.
It opens mostly floral and develops a greener tone as it progresses. By the time the heartnote emerges, it is a cool green floral, smooth and naturalistic, with Lily of the Valley notes. The tone in Do Son is primarily green, creating an outdoor floral feel. It becomes somewhat lily-like, the fragrance you encounter in the florist's shop near the oriental lily cooler.
Carnal Flower and Fracas have a warmer, buttery quality to them. Do Son stays cool and light. It is a BWF I can handle without feeling I'm in a bridal boutique. Even so, it is not exactly my style, preferring roses and darker whites, so I wouldn't wear it often. Nevertheless, wear it I can, which is an accomplishment.
