Retsina americana
The manufacturer classifies'Mojave Strange', to put it bluntly, in his collection of oddities. I can only assume that this is based more on the choice of plant flavours than on the fragrance itself. However, I cannot judge this simply because almost all Barnabys are based on such special, often only in North America native plants that I simply do not know them - hence the flight into partly nebulous generalities that runs through my commentary series to this provider.

I don't find today's candidate strange at all. I already know the bitter freshness of the start, which sticks to the aftersmell of something goat's cheese and the slightly sweaty accompaniment of it. Above all, however, the fragrance quickly becomes mild, with a fine, spicy sweetness. This makes him the most pleasing Barnaby to date - in the sense of "round", not "chumming up". He is also the first to trigger the "What-smells-here-so-toll?-that-is-me!"-thought.

I find the quickly present liqueur note, as if from a resined wildflower-herbal liqueur, very unusual. Ah, perhaps the North American answer to the retsina? After an hour I feel like in the middle of a whole meadow of flowers and herbs, mixed with sweetness.

Only in the course of the morning it becomes more bitter, while at the same time an almost dry-fruity impression takes hold, which in turn touches on the liqueur. And it does NOT get dry-obstig-gammelig. A well-dosed needle note contributes just that medicine (optional portion of bitters) that is guaranteed not to make you sick.

In the past hours I thought many times: If Amouage ever decided to return to old class, they could get the formula, "add a ladle of incense and then have a soft straight-so-even-oriental, for which they could save themselves the thing with "Man/Woman".

In the afternoon, the fragrance - astonishingly from the same aroma reservoir - shows a "more naturally fragrant" image. Maybe one tooth too much sweetness has got into it now. But that is whining on a high level, because until the evening I feel friendly surrounded by a resinous liqueur with a more la-la-la-floral aspect. The Marsala thickened cliff, where'Dark Woods' failed, is narrowly circumnavigated today.

Conclusion: The allegedly so strange representative is above all simply a little different than most of his siblings from the six-sample set, which I (thank you!) received from Yatagan. I like Mojave Strange.
