Coke in the Church
As a student who is not yet part of the working population, one likes to trust for the exploration of highly praised fragrances on the (in my opinion, unjustly) discredited by many fragrance clones, and if one may believe some self-proclaimed experts on the worldwide web, this concrete Afnan fulfills the task with flying colors.
The price is pleasant, the bottle is solid, heavy and from an aesthetic perspective, not a work that offends the eye or leads to discord, on the contrary, it seems downright shockingly valuable for the price. In summary, first of all, a round thing.
The fragrance, on the other hand, raises questions; freshly sprayed on, the nose is beaten by a wide variety of notes, it seems shrill and gloomy, over-seasoned and smoky, downright beastly. After a few minutes, however, this "symphony of horror" subsides and what remains is a very warm, tingly-resinous aura on the skin, which for me would be somewhere in the split between the interiors of a Gothic church and a warmed Coca Cola. No, the drydown is really a clear contrast to the opening, but a further development remains denied.
A very interesting fragrance, definitely polarizing, I am very curious in which direction the more frequent use may influence the subjective fragrance experience.
