Reviews of Land of Warriors by The Vagabond Prince

The green herbal-cucumber opening has a touch of earthiness attached to it that makes for an unusual set of top notes. Soon a woodsy compoenent appears, which is developing into a saffron with an a concurrent restrainedly spicy frankincense impression. This is not a ceremonial heavy frankincense, but more of a lighter and approachable type of frankincense -
more - playful jazz than high mass.

The base is mainly characterised by the frankincense continuing but paired with a fair amount of styrax; hints of castoreum contribute to the somewhat sharper character of the combination, which is contributed to by a light white musk and a cistus undercurrent, although is never looses a certain smoothness.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and a superb twelve hours of longevity.

An unusual concept and a little bit disjoint, not following traditional rules but nonetheless intriguing, although suffering a bit from ingredient overload. Excellent performance. 2.75/5.

Fougere/Chypre--yeah, sure, I get that from the perfumer's notes. But that fougere in the middle is so massive that I'm getting none of the alleged citrus, just a strange hissy whine that's threatening a headache. Time to scrub off and re-review on paper later.

A strange, vaguely unpleasant opening – a sort of fruity, leafy kind of thing with a trace of leather somewhere in the distance. It actually smells a little automotive with some vegetal facets, which is just weird. It also smells more than a tad dated – almost like a late-‘80s mainstream fragrance. But what does intrigue me about it is that for as oddly familiar as it smells (Drakkar Noir? Fahrenheit?), the path it takes to get there seems far less conventional. There's a prominent watery effect in it – like calone without the searing pain. So, although I find it sort of ghastly, for people who love the retro effects of the kind of butch masculines you can find at TJ Maxx, Land of Warriors has some curious appeal to it.
