Honeywood
Colonia Ebano is no longer one of my favorites but the few lines I wrote months ago are not enough to adequately describe this AdP product. Therefore I decided to describe Ebano a little bit more detailed and to add the comment.
First of all, the name of the perfume is misleading, because the focus is actually on the honey.
The honey is dominant from the beginning and remains clearly visible the whole time. It may be that the other base notes try to hide it, as it appears rather thick and tamed in its sweetness. So this honey note is not sugar-sweet but finer, somehow more noble and therefore more moderate. This makes the violent prelude bearable, because I perceive it as falling into the honey pot. Basically well solved concerning the honey.
The typical Acqua di Parma top notes with refreshing citric, which are typical of oud or leather, for example, are somewhat lost here in my eyes. That's a pity in that one important feature is missing and the cologne character is not presented as polished as usual.
Anyway: the honey remains present, is soon enmeshed by woody notes and I find the fragrance very wearable, somehow classic but also demanding, because if you wanted ebony, you have to accept that the wood is not the protagonist.
The ebony is quite noticeable, but figuratively speaking it looks like freshly polished wood, which would like to smell like it but can't, because intensely spicy honey has run over the furniture. This is unfortunate because the wood messengers appear quite fine only weak and fragile at the same time, which is why one gets the impression that the honey also got a more important role.
The H/S doesn't tear out any trees, but Ebano is still perceptible after many hours, although weaker. For me the smell is ok but nothing for every day, for that it is too pleasing, smooth. In general you can get it as part of the brown series for less money, it was not transferred to the black series. So if you like woody and mild-tame honey, you should take a look here. Nevertheless, it has to be said that the topic Ebano has only been hit conditionally.

winnie pooh´s Holy Grail
"I'm just a little black rain cloud, hovering under the honey tree." That's how Pooh must feel when he thinks of Ebano Colonia.

The prelude is determined by honey and honey, which dominated very strongly in my nose and I thought to myself also briefly "to the shower you would have just still time". But I really wanted to test him.
A blessing came after about 45 minutes and the patchouli, ebony and vetiver were added. In combination with the honey a pleasant mixture.

By and large, this fragrance is a shane piece for anyone who likes it sweet and cozy. I won't make it bad because there's something special about it.
Nevertheless he won't make it into my wish list and will be there as a bottler.

It's just too sticky for me :(

It's very woody and spicy, a bit resinous, with a hint of smoke, but sweeter than I would have desired. I am not convinced.
