Animal Chypre
Mandodari is already a special Prin fragrance. Purely from the notes, Mandodari did not appeal to me at least not compelling. Tuberose gladly, caraway always depends on it, other notes were rather not my topic. Lately, however, I felt smoky floral fragrances as increasingly exciting, because these two for me diametrically opposed impressions can be interwoven partly quite wonderful.

So then also here. For me, Mandodari opens like an old aldehyde oak moss scent. Relatively quickly, however, it becomes exotically floral, while also smoky. Notice how the tuberose is there, absolutely not feminine and lush but barren of any impression in that direction. Rather sober, masculine, I like that very much. Then the smoky element takes over, the floral components become more borderline, more exotic; almost as if these two notes were dueling. This Sturm und Drang phase dominates the opening.

What creates this smoke now, one can probably only speculate. The pepper certainly contributes to it, the wooden ingredient represents the foundation; old, worn wood. The tobacco lies open on the table and creates its own olfactory contribution. Strong and now it is slowly but surely becoming too expressive. Suddenly a soapy hint comes up, the scent settles.

But does it stay like that? Of course not, after an hour I notice clearly the caraway and yes, that is racy including the leg note feared by many. Since I find caraway in the fragrance quite good, however, this causes me no annoyance. It's not just the cumin either. Even before that, there was the civet which forms the framework of Mandodari. A basic leatheriness paired with a touch of animalic on oakmoss is clearly present. Prin can do that easily. I had to think at first of Animalik in the bog but no bog at night.

Chapeau for this successful creation, this is not an extreme Prin although he clearly shows in which direction Prin Lomros goes with his fragrances. In this respect, it is perhaps not a bad entry into the Prin world. At the same time, Mandodari is very wearable, so I would like to make a recommendation.

Scent of hope
She wore a wreath of flowers in her long white hair. Stunningly beautiful, sensuously scented flowers. As if lost, she turned before the half-blind mirror and hummed softly. Behind her, on the teak table in the semi-dark niche, fine vapours rose from the half-smoked cigarette
and mixed with the coffee scent .
Her dress, light and airy, smelled slightly of goat hair 30 years ago, he promised to come back. And she never stopped believing that...

Not for the faint hearted
In the jungle....you perceive it before it is there...powerful, strong, heavy...not an old house cat or a playful kitten...a majestic shining black panther passes by...deliberate with huge heavy velvety paws...and long after it has passed its power remains present and mingles with the aroma of the huge flowers and vanilla....

Aldehydic and animalic bomb
Mandorari is a very interesting fragrance. It has for me overall an animalic character but with very pronounced aldehydes which makes It brighter, fresher and gives to It a very soapy vibe. Over this aldehidic-animalic background comes a White flowers bouquet which shine beautiful during most of the time that the perfume lasts. For me It has a very similar vibe to diaghilev by roja dove and It remember me also a bit to kouros by ysl for the way that the animalic notes are treated here. I must say that i havent Heard before about some of the notes It has and this makes the perfume something unexpected and misterious.

The performance is good. It has a very good longevity with moderate sillage. Fue yo his deepness and intensity i think is a good option for cold/moderate temperatures and even better for night. In adition It has a very sexy character which make It a bomb for nightout. It is also weareable during the day but probably only in winter/fall.

Best animalic
This was my first ever, niche perfume that I purchased. I waited a long time for it because it wasn’t available and I didn’t buy any perfume before that moment. As an ignorant person on the subject, I loved it straight away and it was very strange and I was amazed that my nose immediately appreciated the animal scents or the perfume itself. This is a perfume you must have in your collection. Some would say that it doesn’t suit a woman at all. Animalic, floral, smoky. Aldehydes, tuberose, woods, tobacco... I think this is one of Prin’s most beautiful perfumes and one you can’t do without.

Very animalic and aldehydic perfume which combines the dark and Deep side of civet with the bright and soapy character of aldehides. Bomb

Florals done right, imo. Doesn't lean too feminine. Smells of sun-dried linens with pencil-shaving sandalwood. Pleasant!

Smoky floral with civet in the back. Nice but for a fuller experience, consider the higher concentrated Mandodari-Mandodari

Exotic, floral, bright n´ fresh, although very spicy and animalic without forgetting aldehydes. Delicate and robust at same time! Love it.
