Latest Reviews of Kamasurabhi
The florals plateau on what to my nose seems like plumeria and champaca in a grove of sandalwood. This sandalwood is the fulcrum of the composition, where it all centers, and the yellow florals rally around it as a chorus, singing the praises of 80s and 90s amber florals with modern arrangements.
Villoresi took this time test-approach, incorporated his lovely base for which I am hooked, and elevated innovative floral elements with woody and fresh components. I am really, really pleased with the end product. It's another dazzler from a favorite perfumer.
When I tried it on the back of my hand it faded to a nondescript floral -- maybe the narcissus combined with ylang ylang -- that lasted forever in grandma perfumey glory. I occasionally got a bit of amber, but the floral was dominant.
However, I decided to just wear it today and it was better. The ginger shifted to tuberose, which changed to the floral, but this time it changed again. It got spicy, like a soldly good carnation note. That gave way to a sandalwood or amber that is too powdery for my taste, but fortunately the patchouli stepped in and gave it a darker edge. I might get vanilla, but that might just be my skin doing it's thing.
I didn't get the leather I was hoping for, but this time around it was mostly pleasant. Six hours in and it is mostly faded.
There are 3 versions, EDT, EDP and Pure Parfum.
This is the EDP and it is very strong and tenacious
