Very helpful Review
The top note is actually a pepper-dominated tangy explosion. What follows is for me a bizarre combination of soft and shrill. Ylang-Ylang is perforated by Vetiver. One could actually define it as one's own note, the two are so closely connected. Shrill velvet, glistening fog or what is that? As undecided as with the description/definition of this main note I am in general when it comes to this fragrance. You can hunt me down with soft, round, sweet scents. And I've had enough of the shrill Vetivers by now (only one survived). Now was that the solution. The marriage of these two antipodes?
Rose and sandalwood meet in the second row. They also keep the balance, whereby this stands on a lower level, i.e. Ylang-Ylang and Vetiver. There is a third level between the two couples. No opponents this time. The oakmoss. I perceive this above all when I lead my nose very close to the scent source and inhale it. This effect also steps into the background at a greater distance.
What makes me feel very positive about this is the performance. The scent is so penetrating on the skin, on clothing and in the room or in the air. Luckily, I quickly realized this morning that you have to dose carefully here. The fragrance was good to very good for 12 hours with three sprayers. It was extreme with my two outside appointments, each of which lasted several hours. With the knowledge of this concentration I only added one sprayer to the sport today. I haven't experienced it with any scent yet, but after three hours it was still detectable in the locker room. Whereby I can not tell whether it was the exposure when spraying on or the clothes in the locker.
Altogether a metallic, spicy, hot and sweet brew, which delivers an impressive and above all sustainable performance, especially with the appropriate ventilation.
