Oriental to the fullest. Oud is the star of the show. Curtain after curtain, actors come and go but oud stays true and stays the focal point. Animalic, warm, Spicy and balsamic. Never goes too far in any direction. The combination of Elemi and aromatics make up an unintended eucalyptus note which is in perfect harmony with other notes. A slight sweet honey note is also present which offsets the other heavy notes.

crunchy woody-resinous
The beginning after application begins sweetish green, somehow flowery but also resinous. Something chemical penetrates through the quite sweet scent cloud which was too pronounced for me in the further course. In addition there is a citric note that brings some freshness, but the fragrance is wonderfully soft at the same time. So I would rather classify Tempest as a feminine perfume. As a fitting counterpart I see Hayat, which has a rather masculine start (lavender) and the same fantastic finish. How nice that I could find here the great carcassy-woody-resinous note that always makes me sniff the perfume with fascination. The longer the fragrance is worn, the more I remember the peppery wood scent of Hayat.

Magic is a chaste rose-oud combination
"Sometime am I all oud with roses, who, with thorny tongues, do prick me into boredom." (dance, based on Shakespeare)

Tempest was inspired by The Tempest (first performed in 1611) by William Shakespeare, the official website claims. And especially inspired by the magic and alchemy in The Tempest.

The main character is Oud, the sawed-off Duke of Milan, who lives on some island with his daughter Rose.
So that Rose does not become an old maid, he baits Cedar to cause a shipwreck.
So that the stranded prince Patchouli and Rose do not become active before marriage, he talks Cedar into organizing a "mask". This is a Renaissance party with music, singing and acting. The mask is both Rose's and Patchouli's engagement party and is intended to show the lovers the value of chastity (!).

(Chastity is also better if you wear Tempest.)

Oud tries to solve his problems with magic (cedar). But then finds out that blackmail works better for some people. I think that's a fine lesson. If magic is a rose-oud combo, I'd rather have something else. I'll take the blackmail, too. Maybe it's green or citric.

Tempest is much more durable than a performance of The Tempest, but does not fill an entire theatre hall with its sillage. Contrary to what I said in my statement, I find Tempest very animalistic. How much or how little animalistic I find it, depends probably on my state of mind.

You can wear Tempest at work if you are a poet, as well as in the evening or when going out if you are dense. You could get into trouble in a theatre. Family tester Q once ate garlic before she went to the theater and that didn't go down too well. Tempest does not smell of garlic but on some days of goat. In The Tempest there is a character named Caliban who is half monster, half human. A kind of a mog, only not as nice. I think Tempest would go well with that perfume.

Smells so rich, expensive, bit sour in a very pleasant way, definitely oriental, like a very concentrated version of More than Words for me.

After a fresh citric-spicy opening, an uplifting dusty floral-woody Mid season fragrance, balanced by a gentle earthy resinous-woody base.
