Obviously good with clealy flaws
As a wood lover, I was very much looking forward to testing Abîme. The experience was interesting, and unexpected. The scent opens with a sweet and spicy wood smell, and somehow contains a trace of animalic offness. Soon a plant note (probably Elemi) uplifts the experience with a little kinky flavor. Then the scent leaves the stage almost entirely to cedar and sandalwood. Have to say, cedar is not my favorite note. The smell in this stage feels a little dull and boring. Luckily, the scent eventually evolves into a slight sweet woody scent that I like very much.

The experience with Abîme is a little mixed, but overall positive. I thoroughly enjoyed its lively opening, and cozy and intimate ending, but find the lackluster second stage hard to forgive.

Sandalwood Cedar
It’s a beautiful, super smooth white sandalwood cedar. I don’t really get any of the pepper in the opening though it is drier and less sweet through most of the first few hours of the fragrance on my skin. The creamy sweetness of the sandalwood doesn’t come out until the late dry down on my skin, still accompanied by a bit of lemony acerbity (elemi, or so the ad copy claims). It wears pretty close to the skin. I really wish the creamy sandalwood came out earlier.

Sprayed on from the tester bottle at Ministry of Scent in SF on a 75F day. Worn about 10hrs at time of writing.

Up close - quite earthy. woody, oddly smooth. a bit too vegetal. Smells a lot like milk, actually - it's kind of off-putting
