Scent Detective's Review of Sexy Viking by D.S. & Durga

I like this fragrance, but it's very one dimensional to my nose...maybe two dimensional as the drydown changes slightly, but not as much as I'd like.

This starts with black currant, and I love black currant, so that's why I like this fragrance...but it also smells mainly like black currant throughout the whole wear and I was so hoping to be able to smell the many marvelous listed notes like the bitter orange, the pine, the juniper, the barley and the wheat, etc. All these notes should be smelled to create the image that DSM is attempting to convey in the description of this fragrance and I personally don't feel that it achieves that as it's far too one dimensional in my opinion. I have noticed just a slight hint of a grain presence in the far drydown and that's why I mentioned that it might have a "slight" two dimensionality about it...but it is far to faint for my taste. I want to smell the listed note transitions throughout the wear as the sales pitch for Sexy Viking was so interesting and intriguing. I'm hoping some of the other notes will intensify in time as this fragrance ages, but of course there's no way of knowing if that will happen. Time will tell.
