I think you nailed this one, it’s intensely human in a comforting, intimate way. So unique, in the opening I almost get a slightly iodine mineralic oceanic type of aura that reminds me of eating uni sashimi but shortly after it settles into the cold human sweat you described.@teone.reinthal Sliabh na Caillí.
Still so impressed with this. Very intrigued when Teone announced it. My thoughts about my sample are on here from the other month . I sent it to my friend Helen @lowkeyhighflyer who then also ended up buying a bottle
It is by far the most unique scent I’ve tried from Teone. Like in my previous post, this is a moment in time captured in perfume.
That damp, almost musty opening is superb. It’s hard for me to explain without it sounding awful, but it reminds me of “Work Sweat”. When your clothes are wet through with sweat after a long day of grafting, you’ve been rained on a few times, working outside, in a forest, in a quarry, something like that. It’s that clean sort of sweet/salty vibe I get from it so much in the opening.
This perfume gets better the longer you wear it. It becomes attached to you. Works with your own skin and becomes part of you. There’s such a perfect animalic vibe it gives a few hours in. It’s not rough or super dirty, it’s subtle and even quite soft, yet so unique and appealing. I call it the “Human” smell. It’s what a human smells like when they aren’t fresh out the shower, they haven’t been to the gym for 5 hours, just a normal, natural person smell. It’s incredible. It’s like the epitome of the smell I crave the most. The scent of my partners skin in the morning after a nights sleep together.
My blabbing will never, ever do this justice. If you want to try something different, I kid you fuckin not, this is epic!

Thank you. I know exactly what you mean. Personally think it’s one of Teone’s best.I think you nailed this one, it’s intensely human in a comforting, intimate way. So unique, in the opening I almost get a slightly iodine mineralic oceanic type of aura that reminds me of eating uni sashimi but shortly after it settles into the cold human sweat you described.
It’s always exciting to smell something animalic that isn’t another oily-orris-unwashed scalp or urinous bathroom vibe (although I do love both of those). This is somehow transparently clean and mineralic, like the sweat of a Greek marble statue.
You gotta fight the confirmation bias lol.Yeah I definitely would. It’s the whole point of the perfume as well. “The Love Affair”. Burning passion, erotic hunger, it’s one of Teone’s most sexual fragrances for me.
But like I always say, we are all different and have our own interpretations of things.
