Niche perfumery - and especially in the low-scale range - is often about polarising fragrances that were and are deliberately created for a very top target group. Here I mean not only the financial possibilities, which are usually required, but also a certain olfactory preference, up to the fixation, which is served.
At Dmitry, we find scents he would wear himself. From ingredients that he partly picks with his own hands. A creative type who has preserved the childlike, and now "plays" with scents and ingredients instead of the fire brigade.
He is always interested in portability. And a certain mood.
And in any case, his most beloved flowers, which he brings into his fragrances as floral aspects.
After Amber Cologne, Musk Cologne is now another masterpiece from his pen (and his distilling flask).
While in classical perfumery sandalwood oil is usually used as a carrier, Dmitry always develops its own carriers to preserve and transport the dissolved floral oils and fragrances. Here now it is a musk tincture. (With other fragrances it was often Oudh-oils).
The result is intoxicatingly beautiful and almost classic. And described in a few words.
Fresh floral notes of white flowers and real orange citric float above a soft, light, creamy musk bed.
In contrast to his partner Russian Adam, Dmitry consciously renounces the overkill of real musk in the fragrance and gives him a wonderful peace and serenity, coupled with very high wearing comfort.
At the 10-hour mark, Musk Cologne says goodbye and shows what an eau de parfum from Dmitry´s Schmiede can do.
It does not need much of everything to create a very good fragrance.
It needs the right dose.
And in old English usage, the word Cologne simply described that it was a fragrance - a perfume.
In this respect Musk Cologne is also THE musk scent for me, which doesn't need any names anymore.
Both - scent and his name - are on point :)
