The beauty of this is that it feels totally natural. It smells like you are really smelling osmanthus and a garden of exotic fruits and flowers. But it's not overly floral in a perfumey way like, say, Arpege or Joy.
These brothers have created a perfume that utterly transports me to an exotic but unnamable tropical garden. Good on them!
I find projection, development and longevity to be very good.
Quiet but high quality vanilla. Just when you think it's faded, you get another pleasant waft. Reminds me of Mona di Orio's Vanille, which is a complement. Not as complex as that one, but fully as high quality. Very enjoyable vanilla.
This is like sexual ink. It's a beautiful fragrance and does remind me of that wonderful inky smell and the almost sexual feelings I experienced (without realizing it) as a young boy when I'd be reading the Sunday L.A. Times and smelling that ink.
This is what it reminds me of and kind of smells like. It's the most pleasurable perfume I own.
Purecaramel nailed it. This is magnificent spice, tobacco, honey, rose, and the best SAFFRON note imaginable. It is the finest trip through the best spice bazaar. Oh, man, this is one of the FINEST attars Ive ever experienced.
