Emotional roller coaster
EO No.1 Assam is the 3rd edition of Ensar's EO No.1 series and overwhelms me hopelessly right at the beginning. The first 10 - 15 min are for me a roller coaster of emotions and my enthusiasm but also my dislike are close together. After that, however, Assam becomes a little rounder and calmer and, with a slight hint of roses, for me also more cuddly and familiar. Civet, which usually meets with rejection from me, is here, fortunately, not so potent. Moving into the base, Assam surprises me with earthy and woody fresh oud (similar to Ensar Monsieur Oud) paired with soothing incense. The sandalwood and vanilla add some warmth to the fragrance, yet oud, smoke and leather continue to dominate. The evolution of EO No1 Assam varies frequently. To build a long-term relationship with Assam, especially as an OUD novice, time and patience are essential factors.
