radioactive leather
I liked this perfume a lot, it is a rugged leather with a lot of temperament. A difficult fragrance, not liked by everyone, but if you are one of those who like leather, spices and resins in atomic version, you will love it, it has a beautiful eighties vibe, but not suitable for anyone. A strong aroma for people who know what they want, the rest to abstain.

The start is somewhat cooler with sage and basil, but nothing cool for the summer, no, rather something more tame than what comes next. From the first snort the leather is present, but here it is bent even by basil and sage, which give it that fresh and green touch, with a slight balsamic resin reflection. Gradually the leather begins to feel much more intense, accompanied by oud and incense, making the aroma very intense, balsamic, smoked, medicated and very spicy, giving a feeling of rustic and old leather, but of great quality. Perfectly it could be the smell of leather sacks that they use to carry loads of spices on camels, they literally have to smell like this. The aroma is evolving, but this spicy sensation does not lose it, and begins to feel warmer and resinous, roasted and incense, where the leather is still the protagonist, but now, next to a slight animalic touch that rounds a precious leather.

Luckily for those of us who like these aromas, the performance of this perfume is very good, exceeding 10 hours more than my skin, with a very good wake during almost all the development of the perfume. A night perfume for cold or fresh climates.

Intense perfume and not suitable for all audiences, but if you like these aromas, you have to try it, although the price of this jewel is somewhat high, it is not as exaggerated as that of other niches I have tried, and in comparison, I think worth every penny they ask for him.

More Forceful Than Complex
Boadicea the Victorious COMPLEX is more forceful than complex. Lots of green and lots of leather, plus a few other components thrown in as well, though I must say that I do not smell any evidence whatsoever of the purple wonder of violets in this composition!

COMPLEX is a loud leather, but also a labdanum and herb-heavy chypre. Think: old lady in pearls and tweed meets Harley dude in leather and chains on a wet day in the forest and for some reason they fall for each other, tumbling to the ground next to the dying embers of a campfire to form a greenish-leather-virile-dusty ball that rolls about the moist dark soil sprinkled with pine needles and cones.

Strong and declarative, COMPLEX has great longevity and big sillage. My cat seems to like this a lot, and if only he'd spring for a bottle, I'm sure that I'd wear it now and then!
