How could I possibly..
Dazzled by massive bottles with deer head, sweeping descriptions, promising notes, I was prepared for something big.
But when my sharing bottling arrived and I tried it, I was disillusioned.
Even later, when the brand was to be found locally, the compositions could not convince me so at all. Too well known. Too sweet. Too expensive.

Since then, a few months have gone into the country, I have found my filling again after rearranging and new perfume cabinet and wanted to try it again. Has something changed? No.

To me, this fragrance continues to be too sweet, I have no idea what the Wood has to look for in the name, the price actually shocks me and I am glad not to have a bottle.

But I would like to be a little more differentiated on Imperial Wood. Despite the fact that I see no wood there. Instead, the fragrance starts opulently with a lot of soft spices, warm notes of tobacco and resins that neither scratch nor smoke, a touch of flower and that's it. As the first glow fades, it becomes sweeter in the base and continues to be soft and spicy on top. Cinnamon, vanilla and tonka play with each other. Skillfully and yet I can not get away from the feeling of having smelled this mixture umpteen times and simply be repugnant to it. In addition, at the very bottom of the sweetness of the composition bumps a pungent synthetic note. And that then destroys everything for me.
The rest of the course is linear and without further surprises. That is also completely in order so. It does not need a change of direction to be well composed fragrance. But here I was disappointed.

As already mentioned: too sweet, too familiar, too expensive. Too bad.

A perfect gift.
I chose this fragrance as a birthday gift for my best friend.

He was born in the winter and very masculine and cold in character.

I found this fragrance perfect, it literally smells like winter in the bottle, and warms the rooms in which it is with its beautiful woody scent!

The bottle is a masterpiece, just a beautiful sight this golden, large stag!

I also find the processing and the story of Swedish everyday life in the 17th century very interesting.

exciting but equally sweeping
Number 2 of my achievements during the Munich Oktoberfest - apparently I need strong smells against this beer haze
What do I smell here:
The fragrance starts really fierce with rose - which could initially give the impression - not another rose whatever mix...
Wait...in the rose mixes a certain spiciness, wood and saffron-like notes - probably the Givaudin substance Safraleine - without this ever pure to have smelled...also a tobacco note could be suspected - here be thought of bright dry Virginia tobacco...
This impression lasts a surprisingly long time and is only after some time of the gingerbread spice replaced - vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, clove and a hint of cardamom...
Finally, some Oudh, little incense and a subtle leather accord on the skin
remains

Personally, I would have preferred a little less rose...nevertheless, we are stuck here with the Orient - successful, long lasting, finely tuned, heavy without knocking one down

A perfume for the big evening ...sparsamst used gehts but also times in the office...durability and Silage definitely far ahead...
Packaging high-quality...
For the price, however....habe I found perfumes that I personally find better made...the whole blurred but too much to a common Oriental

Sweet rose scent, spicy / warm background
The Imperial Wood is for me times a relatively pleasant rose fragrance.
Admittedly, I do not like most fragrances with intense rose at all. Here, the rose is also quite strong, but it still comes along differently.
A rose sweetly deposited and for me even with cherry vibes, for whatever reason.
I know that no cherry is listed, but still I have the feeling to smell a cherry, which gives the rose a very subtle fruitiness with on the way.

After a short time also emerges more sweetness and spice.
Cardamom, cinnamon and similar wintry spices play here with. In addition, also a quite noticeable tobacco chord.
Furthermore, the fragrance has a subtle incense veil, as well as a quite soft and well used cocoa note on the felt everything is processed.
It is covered, but is still present and important.

Oud I personally can not really perceive.
I do find that the longer the fragrance lingers on the skin, it becomes slightly "dirtier", but it still has those sweetish chords and so I have a hard time detecting the oud.
I know that many think that you can recognize the oud well in Imperial Wood, but I do not feel so.

It is actually the first fragrance of Pana Dora I have tested.
My conclusion is that the Imperial Wood is quite well done and I can understand if many like him. This kind of rose is just something different and quite wearable for people like me who are not big rose fans.

The performance of the fragrance I found to be really good !

Unfortunately, I can not give the fragrance despite this more than a 7, because it just does not really meet my personal taste.
I would prefer to give a 7.25 hehe.

A tobacco miracle
If you like tobacco scents, you should definitely buy this fragrance. The tobacco flavor comes through very strongly and the addition of the other components makes it smell really wonderful.

Vanilla, cocoa and cinnamon also make a really great combination. This also goes perfectly with the tobacco note and simply creates such a sweet aftertaste. This fragrance can be worn for elegant occasions or for a relaxed evening. It simply always goes down really well.

The bottle is also a real eye-catcher. Definitely belongs in every collection.

Nothing special, one dimensional with no depth. The performance is also quite average.
