Necropolis
The burial place of the first emperor of China Qin Shi Huang is probably one of the most remarkable cultural finds in history. The necropolis or necropolis was built in his honour in prehistoric times. Work on the mausoleum began around 246 BC and took on gigantic proportions. The emperor should not lack for anything after his death. And certainly not for protection! So an army was placed at his side. It was estimated that there were about 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 130 cavalry horses. All of them were made of terracotta and at that time they were painted in a lifelike manner and some of them were equipped with real sabres, bows, arrows and lances. In some places also dressed in leather armour and armour according to rank. Created from earth and minerals to protect the beloved emperor in the realm of the dead and to continue to serve him. How it is to walk through the ranks of the terracotta army and stand before them has been impressively captured in a perfume with Bing Ma Yong. A perfume that is as impressive and powerful as the emperor's army itself!
Bing Ma Yong
The perfume is dry. Not to say "dust-dry"! Bing Ma Yong immediately opens the battle with a very pungent civet note and a very powdery iris with a light undertone of bitter-tangy mandarin. Pricking like a spear thrust in the nose is the entry and not very friendly. But the first impression settles relatively quickly and becomes softer. A surge of ground and dry spices is added. Not to be classified in its variety and abundance. At this stage, Bing Ma Yong remains for quite some time before he transforms again and takes up a new fighting position. Earthy and mineral notes emerge. It begins to smell of sour clay or terracotta that is about to be baked in the oven. Still soft and slightly creamy in its consistency. The earthy and sour aspects remain for a while before the fragrance literally turns to dust. A light leather accord creeps in and a dry iris note, which can almost be described as chalky and mineral, is superimposed by a delicate floral peony note. This final finish ages the fragrance in a very mysterious way and gives it a very antique appearance.

Conclusion
Let me tell you something Bing Ma Yong is not a fragrance for delicate minds. He is strong, impressive, powerful and has truly warlike traits. If I did not know better, I would say it was made by Francesca Bianchi. It is very powdery due to the iris butter and also very animalistic due to a maximum of civet. Powdery and tart and spicy notes distinguish it. Earthy and darkest vetiver and mineral and dusty notes run through it and truly give the impression of terracotta. The scent of aged leather and a subtle floral peony give a very antique finish. All the notes seem to struggle with each other at first, but in the end they all come together to form a very harmonious whole, one after the other, as if in a staggered hierarchy. Bing Ma Yong is very durable in his performance. He is very concentrated and has almost the quality of a pure perfume. He stands guard and at service for twelve hours. Personally, I don't like classification, but if I were to classify him by gender, he would definitely be male. Bing Ma Yong is an olfactory time travel. Impressive, warlike, powerful and proud. And let me make one thing clear... this army takes no prisoners!

So underrated it's crazy
People! Pay attention to this beauty! Wow, just stunningly complex with some sort of unusual dustiness, some leather, fresh peony, deep woods, a bit of spice. Almost like a dark chypre. Extremely elegant, unusual, unique, a bit masculine-leaning yet both sexes can pull this off. Not necessarily naturalistic the way I like my fragrances. It's more of a proper perfume, more posh, more elegant than what I normally wear. What I would do to own a bottle though.
