Old gone times
Some time ago, when you thought about white floral fragrances, you could traditionally go in two directions: vintage or (nowadays) synthetic. Each world have something wonderful to give us; but there is certainly a Third Way. Koh-i-Noor, a work devised by Nikhil Sharan, is a modern, almost all-natural, creation with both feet in the 50s and a languid gaze into the future. The fluffiness of its heart is even chewable; the Mysore, butter on whipped cream. This is the first deer musk based blend from the house that I find calibrated and simply gorgeous. It has the perfect —but bold— balance of class, luxury and sensuality. A fragrance for the few; a fetish for aficionados. Its gardenia is warm and pungent; not as aggressive as in Jardenia, Gardelia or the Guerlain; but common people are not used to smell this type of things around; neither perfumists nor snobs. This is such a piece of beauty and a statement... A great, great homage to Jacques Guerlain; even greater to Aimé if I think so.

flowers of paradise
wild animals. peaceful together. clean, flowery air. clarity inside and out.
the memory of paradise we all probably still carry within us - in this fragrance it becomes tangible and alive.

the opening is passionately fresh: like cold air, which immediately stretches to the root of the nose and opens the nose wide inside.
under this almost austere fresh and bright expanse, softer tones vibrate: flowers of great delicacy: so skilfully fused together that no single flower is pushed into the foreground. oud only as a barely perceptible darkening of the flood of flowers.
while the scent warms and gilds inside, the deer musk on the outside creates a subtly animalistic expanse and austerity.
i feel reminded of "siberian musk" and find here a gentle, rather female opposite pole.
a composition as artistic as it is natural, dazzling and mysterious.
unsuitable for "cladding"
a scent for truth seekers

Jewel In A Bottle
When I first read the name of the fragrance, Koh-i-noor, a few of my synapses fired with images from my childhood. This name was always emblazoned on a small metal box with pins of my grandma. Made in Czechoslovakia. It is obvious that Nikhil, alias Perfume Guru, probably didn't refer to these pins when he found the name. The legendary Koh-i-noor diamond gave the name to the diamond. Translated, the Mountain of Light. The epitome of worldly power, which many rulers of the past liked to claim as ornamental to their heads, just as they sometimes even lost their lives for it. Its eventful history has been well documented since 1300 and ends in the Tower of London, where who is exhibited as part of the Crown Jewels. Just a copy, of course.

A unique specimen and absolutely no copy, is the jewel of the same name of Areej le Doré. Planned Floraler Orientale to represent the roots of the diamond, Koh-i-Noor turns out to be Chypre. For the further consideration, simply forget the pyramid please.

The start with the warm opulence of musk and the incredibly realistic lemon is in itself a poem. Very quickly, perfectly coordinated floral components are added, which interlock so finely that it is difficult to work out one of the players at all. At this moment, however, very strongly pictures of one of my current favorites impose themselves on me. Haute Luxe by Roja. Although Roja is a little more flowery and lacks the complexity of musk in an understandable way, the two are still close in their ideas.

Koh-i-noor manages to present not only a reference to a (at least) 800-year-old diamond myth, but also an almost classic fragrance. I would even go so far as to take a look into the past (but also the present) of perfume art because of the low-scale perfumery. Thus all fragrances were composed in Grasse times or in the Orient. Made from natural ingredients. Far away from restrictions and species protection, which above all had to confront the mass market.

If this fragrance was more of a question mark for me, he picked me up completely. I can fully recommend it to anyone who likes floral chypre. But he's not really oriental. Which makes me very happy. :)
