Roaring green clean winds
Clean and rippingly anisic green. This is like a fresh roar of the most fantastic natural organic fruity/minty toothpaste mouthwash blended skilfully with hospital antiseptic. The more of this range I smell, I'm actually beginning to like the sheer craziness of these fragrances. They are right off the wall.

Either my nose is wrong today or again, I'm just not getting the notes that I read here. I'm getting fruity peppermint in big doses and there is no peppermint listed. The drydown is calming and getting more woody spruce. I may do these again another day.

Weird Stuff...
Nox goes on with a nose tingling turpentine-like green, dark woody cypress accord. Moving to the early heart the natural smelling green dark woods take the fore as slightly sharp cedarwood gradually joins the cypress, supported primarily by black peppery resin with a dirty cumin spice facet and a faint salty accord additionally in the background. During the late dry-down the composition shifts gears as powdery relatively dry vanilla takes control with a light, vague woody undertone through the finish. Projection is good and longevity excellent at over 12 hours on skin.

Nox is kind of an odd composition. It starts with a relatively off-putting sharp woody green accord that literally felt like it singed nose hair, causing it to tingle rather aggressively. Getting past the weird aggressive open, the composition stays more than a bit outside the norm, as the initial accord joins a cypress and cedar woody mix that stays very dark and green, flanked by some very heavy spice. The spice is really just as much a player as the woods, as there is a huge amount of pepper resin, coming off with a cumin-like dirty facet when paired with the dark green woods. It wouldn't surprise me if there really *was* some cumin in the composition as well. At this point the composition while interesting, is rather unappealing and difficult to wear. Luckily, as time passes the spice and woods gradually mellow to a point that they are much more tolerable and even near-pleasant smelling. The late dry-down is a rather mundane dry powdery vanilla focused affair, but it is welcome relief from the aggressive spicy-woody green middle, finishing things off less interesting but a lot more pleasant. All-in-all the composition has its moments, but the negatives to a degree outweigh the positives making Nox one that is a bit of a tough sell. The bottom line is Nox certainly gets points for being different for most of its development, but in the end, "different" does not necessarily mean "good," and in this case the final verdict is more of a rather "average" 2.5 stars out of 5 rating and a "neutral" recommendation.

Should be renamed Noxious. Smells like musty/mouldy papaya, wood and aluminium foil with a rather unfortunate note of fresh vomit (no joke).+2
