The citrus jumps out at you when first applied. Almost having me feel that it would be too sweet for comfortable respectability. However, once this mellows down, the sweet mellows into the amber and patchouli, giving this a rich warmth. Really enjoying it.

It makes me think of a 70's era, with a lot of flash and music, but with undertones of a thumping base and seductive dark corners.

Originally called 'Sex Pistols', I think that was pulled and revamped/repackaged as Malaise. The top notes are sharp and lemony, but the aldehydes and peppers seem to add a metallic edge -- like an 'electric guitar', which is apt. The base is a full on leathery mix. I like it a lot, but I have a feeling it's not going to get a lot of love as it has a rather whiney quality if that makes sense? Bit like the Sex Pistols themselves.
