I was looking for a wild combination of tuberose and leather, then I found this.
At first I imagined it to be a "beauty and beast" kind of floral-animalic perfume, but it's not what I expected.
The opening tuberose blast like firework to your face, possibly sweetened by fruity notes, along with subtle inky tone. But this is not a floral perfume, it quickly transition into a dry, slightly salty leather base.
If the flower lure you in, the leather is what make you stay. Sometimes I can perceive a charred cacao or even chocolate edge in the leather. Although the castoreum is listed, luckily it doesn't muddle things up. As time goes by it only makes the leather richer and thicker, it almost developed a gourmand aspect with the tuberose.
This is stunning, polished, balanced and utterly beautiful. It opens on my skin with a strong animal tuberose, with a kaleidoscope of gorgeous floral nuances and a deep chypre oakmoss. This is first class!! It then unfolds into the richest tuberose that is fatty buttery and rich. It last for ages and eventually the drydown is a soft rich tuberose. Five stars for this beauty, most perfumers just don't make this quality of fragrance for the price, anymore. Ordered a full bottle straightaway.........a classic!!!
