Way better than expected
Many times a perfume can't be judged by the sum of its notes and without even smelling it properly, people form an opinion.

I bought it more to check if it's similar to the Moon, also a creation of Julien Rasquinet.. what followed impressed me big time.

This is not an OUD perfume, this is a complex, feel good scent which will evolve from the initial spray to drydown so nicely and harmonious. It has ambery nuances even if such note is not listed.

Its not a cheap alternative to The Moon, but a great standalone creation with power, sillage and feel good factor.

For more thoughts on it, please check my video.

A new arrangement of oud/rose/saffron
The opening of Fidelis is sparkling, soil-like, semi-floral - as in violet-oriented fragrances - and kind of vegetal yet so brutal. This is a beginning of a perfect composition on oudwood and very appetizing spicy floral patch.

As expected from the notes, saffron and cardamom are so bold. Julien Rasquinet masterly employs coffee to give the spicy theme a crisp and dry pseudo-woody/smoky dimension, however, this characteristic is even more intense by cumin, for which the whole composition highly incline to Serge Lutens' works, specially Serge Noir and those orchestrated by cloves and cumin. Cumin, cardamom and saffron are entwined together and formed a spicy whole with gigantic effect on wet medicinal aged Laotian oud.

The core of the fragrance is so spicy and floral that stinks a little and scratches your nose as smelling fresh ground pepper. What makes me take my hat off for Rasquinet's intelligence, is his smart use of four elements of an ordinary so-called oriental rose-oud-saffron-patchouli in the composition and not being affected by the market. He elaborately identifies it in a different way and shows the abilities of oudwood.

Longevity: 9/10
Sillage: 9/10, better to say projection, a tiny spray on my wrist and I have it in whole the/ room.
Scent: 8/10 so special and distinct.

Fidelis!
If you like rose-oud combinations, this one will leave you begging for more.

Beautiful opening with bit of a raspberry tartness and saffron with jammy rose and hint of woody smoke and not so cuminy intensive cumin while cardamom and coffee dance in the background. It's dense, dark and potent! One of my favorite winter fragrances!
This is one of the beast mode fragrances! Lasts 12h on my skin and sillage is monster, everything above 2 sprays is too much!

Julien Rasquinet made a masterpiece here and this one will definitely stay forever in my collection! Bravo!

Fidelis - love me some rose gold coffee break
Fidelis was a great discovery in Jovoy London.
It is a Fragheads heaven! They had all these rare perfumes spread over two levels. I was like a kid in a candy store but then quickly focussed on notes I liked. I love rose, I love tuberose but I also started to appreciate Amber in all its flavours, I said. I was shown different fragrances, which I liked to a certain extent but Fidelis was a love at first sniff. It was unusual, it was spicy -resinous, it had amber and coffee, it had rose and oud. It was all my favourite things rolled into one. The opening is spicy, however I cannot detect cumin and it doesn’t smell weird like some other cumin containing fragrances( looking at you Rose Hubris). It’s a deep cosy fragrance that was well suited for a rainy October day. However, now I wear it also at 36 C and it is just as beautiful. The lasting power is immense, the scent trail is incredible and the scent is unique and definitely gets noticed.

Fidelis - Pink Gold
Notes: Cardamom, Guatemala Coffee, Safforn, Cumin, Rose, Raspberry, Patchouli, Amber and Oud Laos

Perfumer: Julien Rasquinet

Fidelis opens with Cardamom, Cumin, Saffron and Coffee. Cardamom and Safforn give it that dusty vibe here but all these notes are blended perfectly reducing the sharpness of these notes and just the warmth remains. The rose and Raspberry follow soon taking over the spicy opening. The rose doesn't leans on the feminine side and the Raspberry note is very much toned down as well. Finally the drydown which consists of Amber, Patchouli, Oud along with Cumin and hints of Cardamom. Overall a gorgeous warm, gourmandish fragrance which lasts ages and will work excellent in the upcoming weather.

Fidelis is a masterpiece on it's own and it's nothing close to The Moon by Frederic Malle even though the Perfumer is the same

Loud and heavy synth-oud beast. Kinda good for what it is, but the genre itself is inherently crude and shallow. Can and will annoy.

Emanations from the furry armpit of a saffron farmer. Perplexed by the glowing reviews; deeply confused as to why this even exists.

A dirty dark dense spicy oud rose perfume. Great performance, only for winter, more on the masculine side.
