Zeus vs. Narcissus
Since his name is Zeus, 80% of the proceeds flow through Aron into an art therapy project. Actually, the fragrance should only have been given a new name. But after reading the commentary on Narcissus and my impression of the fragrance differs more than clearly, here is the first commentary on Zeus. :)

The fragrance starts extremely floral, almost clove-like. Could be geranium. During the start, the fragrance is actually close to the border of pure femininity for me and almost disappears from my fragrance cosmos. Of fruitiness - no trace.

Fortunately, a really perceptible ozone note creates a perfect counterweight and enough gravity to pull the fragrance back into orbit. Astonishingly, a very, very subliminal chocolate note is added here, possibly drawing its power from lavender and patchouli.

Yes, these grades are also 0 percent in the pyramid.

Over the next 6 hours the fragrance lingers in this ozony, clove-like, but unsweet aura, with a light breeze that blows in the scent of chocolate again and again, and lets you forget the massive floral of the start.

If Aaron really was aiming at a male target group with this fragrance, he still hit the bull's eye perfectly. Zeus is absolutely devoted to both sexes

For the narcissistic moments of life
As the name suggests, Greek mythology served as the inspiration for this perfume. Narcissus, who fell in love with his own reflection and died from it. According to Aaron's own statement, when creating this fragrance, he was targeting men who are to a certain extent self-indulgent and value a certain appearance. These are already very ambitious goals. The expectations were therefore correspondingly high.

Let's get to the first impression of the perfume: the fragrance starts with a beautiful fruitiness, transported by the fig, accompanied by the citric freshness of the bergamot. This is quickly joined by a slightly ozonic note. This is really very beautiful and pleasant, because due to the above-average Sillage a certain aura is created, which seems to surround you from now on.

But the exciting fragrance journey goes much further. Now woods are added, the cedar and sandalwood is soft and beautiful and you really notice how slowly the narcissism rises in you. Musk and patchouli give the fragrance further depth and somehow the whole thing is already damn sexy, I can't describe it any other way at this moment.

The sillage of Narcissus is already well above average and the shelf life is bombastic with about 10 hours. My compliments!

I like the fragrances of Aaron Terence Hughes above all because he uses natural ingredients and matches them really perfectly. In the meantime one recognizes a clear handwriting in his fragrances. Not bad for a relatively young company.

Unfortunately, this also leads to the fact that the number of fragrances he can produce is very limited and his fragrances are almost always sold out. Nevertheless, if you get the chance, you should take it.
