Some vocabulary is learned
The tests of the Barnaby Black fragrances had presented me with quite a problem. In several of them, the supplier refers to very specific plants from his North American homeland - and I simply do not know these plants. So I had to use associations and comparisons even more than usual, like vocabulary, so to speak. So also today:

Mild conifer opened. A hint of Franzbranntwein cheeseiness fades away in no time, instead a gentle Saltimbocca-alla-Marsala sauce liqueuriness is added. The sweetish-creamy Nimère nut migrates, finely planed, into the sauce. Add a handful of grated lemon zest and a teeny teaspoon of ham cubes. The first hours are ready.

As it progresses, it becomes more coniferous again, so to speak. And finally I can confirm something from my own experience: Douglas fir and tree of life (I have both standing in the garden) fit, always as a direction. However here very discreetly used, in particular the Thuja can smell much more violently than given here. There is nothing to be seen in 'Canyon Rift' about their biting etherics, which can even trigger skin irritations. The fragrance is apparently gradually becoming more perfumed. But there's more. Or less.

Early afternoon: dark needle broth with lemon juice.
In the late afternoon: dark needle broth.
Each with a small trace of sweetness so that it will not be unpleasant.

After eight hours, it's practically over. A strange, downright miserable, too dull ending. Maybe there's someone standing down in the canyon calling up something... br />
Conclusion: One of the weaker Barnabys. Too bad, considering the title I had hoped for a dramatic final of my small test series. For the samples I thank Yatagan.

Time for a brand conclusion: although Mr. Sabatino may use various different plants in the production of fragrances, he primarily uses the conifer corner. There can be certain similarities between some of his creations hardly surprise.

Amazing is the Sillage, which is extremely reserved, partly ('Deep Slumber Mountain') almost shy for smells of this kind
I liked the Barnabys to suffer mostly.
