This is my first try of The Siren by Curly Scents x Zaharoff, one of the recent trio releases from the Zed Creators, described (as I understand it) as the heaviest, most cold-weather-leaning, and most gourmand-like of the three releases, and without even comparing it the other releases, I can confirm that it lives up to the billing of being a robust, mostly-gourmand scent, and it is, as its name suggests, quite alluring.

Upon first spray I immediately feel inclined to classify it as a “gourmand leather” (it's really the first quick catchphrase that comes to mind), with more parts gourmand (coffee, cognac, chocolate, almond) than leather (and spices: ginger, cardamom, coriander, patchouli). A fragrance like Davidoff Leather Blend, by contrast, is more parts leather, fewer parts gourmand, but I'd still grossly characterize it similarly as a gourmand leather; still, the distinction is important.

The note list seems accurate, showing that The Siren is a sweet, spicy, boozy, leathery mix, an example (like Piotr Czarnecki Sensei/Shihan, albeit less masculine) of a multifaceted blend of cold-weather-fitting notes. In that vein, this strikes me as a scent I would wear more in the cooler weather or perhaps in the nighttime rather than on a warmer day. It's dense but overwhelmingly so that one could comfortably pull it off throughout the year, but I wouldn't personally opt for it in the current high heat in much of the US. And, as most gourmands are, The Siren is also quite unisex, something anyone with a sweet tooth and an love of booze and chocolate could enjoy.

Priced very reasonably at $119 for 60ml, under the $2/ml mark. Like the rest of the Zaharoff catalogue, its concentration is EDP and its performance is quite great. I believe that one can request a sample as well.

Overall, I'm really impressed. This is an indulgent, pleasing mostly-gourmand-with-some-leather fragrance that will get major wears by many in the winter, especially, but really can work year-round as a nighttime / seductive option for anyone.
