A Familiar Scent...
A week ago I wore some Amouage Epic for Men and mis-sprayed, accidentally spraying a little on my shirt. No big deal, hung up the shirt a little later. Today I took it out and could still faintly smell the Epic's base - Amouage makes some pretty powerful stuff. I put on a dash of Arabian Oud's Kalemat and went off to work. After a few hours, I smelled something strangely familiar. I stopped what I was doing and checked my wrists; that's Kalemat. Then I checked the top of my shirt where the parfumes mixed. Now my nose may not be quite as discerning as others, but I swear it smelled EXACTLY like Criminal Element's Anther. I checked again throughout the day. Yep, this mix of Kalemat heartnotes and faint Epic basenotes had Criminal Element's signature baseline dead-on (particularly Anther), albeit a touch more subdued.
