Gorgeous and Artistic Oriental
I had a decant waiting to be tested, and since I was going out this afternoon for some Halloween festivities, I figured "Eternal Voyage? Like, hmmm, death?" The name was perfect, LOL. Without looking at the notes, I spritzed it on. I was hoping for massive clouds of incense, and that is exactly what I got.

A deliciously fruity opening caught me off guard. It did not smell like citrus, but more tropical. It was sweet and tantalizingly juicy--maybe peach mixed with syrupy pineapple?

The fruit quickly settled on my skin while some of the best incense I have ever smelled in my life began to develop. It smelled just like a smoky headshop full of joss sticks mixed with incense from the most sacred East Asian temples. East meets West. Such thick, black, billowy curls of the smoothest incense--like being at a hookah bar because you get all of the heavenly aromas without the coughing.

Did it remind me of death? Yes. I pictured a ritual in which a body was laid out on a stone table, incense burning, and torches lit on each side. I haven't had images like this come to mind since Anubis, and I would easily place Eternal Voyage into that category of incense, the kind that takes you not only to another place but to an ancient, maybe mythical, time.

Interwoven with all the incense, it smelled a teency bit like men's cologne, like something musky, spicy (nutmeg?) and herbal (lavender?). Barbershop-fougere. Sexy, actually.

Several hours later, as I was driving home, I kept thinking about toffee, which was odd. I told myself that it can't possibly be my new favorite incense perfume. I actually wasn't sure if I was really smelling it or if it was my imagination. Then I got home and looked up the notes--brown sugar! It's a note that I inadvertently noticed, yet Eternal Voyage doesn't strike me as gourmand at all. It's not particularly sweet.

Eternal Voyage is blowing my mind the way that something from Slumberhouse does. It's thought-provoking, constantly mutating, and it contains notes that don't appear to have rhyme or reason "on paper", yet pour them into a bottle and shake, and they make something that nobody has ever smelled before. THIS is perfumery! It is truly artistic.

I know that Miyako got a well-deserved 2016 Art and Olfaction award, but Eternal Voyage is going to be "my" Auphorie perfume.
