Buzzlepuff's Review of Papyrus Oud / 71 by Parle Moi de Parfum

This fragrance is easily a reflection of Michel Almanac's earlier creation Gucci Pour Homme (2003) which was a favorite of mine. I am happy to see it return in this new incarnation. The same notes and smells of GPH are present here in the Parle Moi de Parfum version with ginger, papyrus, incense, oud, patchouli and chocolate in place of vanilla. Fewer notes are listed for Papayrus Oud and it carries less density particularly in the spice blend, but possibly just a bit improved by the oh so slight addition of Oud hidden beneath the papyrus. The oud gives some resonance to the light papyrus woods and the chocolate give a slight bit of gruff and growl to the gingery incense combination. Highly recommended!
