The Bortnikoff masterpiece
This is my favorite perfume from the Bortnikoff collection because it is absolutely special within it, and also in a general context of the world of perfumes.
There is nothing that smells similar or can be compared.
There is really nothing concrete that identifies as a note clearly. And for me that is mastery in a perfume.
Some say it smells like apricot, peach. But it's not like that. Anyone who knows a Slumberhouse (Kiste) that really smell as it, will know.
To the so peculiar opening, it probably collaborates, but very fused with surely white flowers and an enormous amalgam of ouds of various types.
The liquor that someone mentions out there, I would not highlight it if it had it (not as a Sans Fleurs) because it is not a liquor perfume at all (and I am a fan of them) nor would I say that it smells moss .

Making an idea of how it smells from a description is impossible. You absolutely must try it.
For me it is a warm and comforting smell, magnetic and cozy. It has that kind of elegance. It is not something bombastic or flashy to wear.
Despite how special it is, how original it is, it is a smell that does not "scare" people not used to strange and far-fetched perfumes from the niche world.

The performance is one of the best in Dimitri's collection, it lasts on a cruel masculine skin like mine, somewhat below recognized and mythical pumps (Interlude, classic DHP ...) and the silage and projection is in that line. It does not get to "fill rooms" at that point of exaggeration but it is extraordinary in natural perfumes, that of course.

Unexpectedly...
... with me, as far as scents are concerned, unfortunately not very often, but rather seldom.

I already had the sample under my nose half a year ago. I liked Bortnikoff (in the beginning) very much. But somehow it seems that they quickly bought a planer and a stack of sheets of sandpaper to smooth out what for me was the most important part of the original, which was very much appreciated at the beginning.

But when I got a sample of Sayat Nova under my nose I was really surprised. I didn't think that Dimitry would mix and also bottle it again so recklessly. I was less surprised by the below average rating here at Parfumo.de for a Bortnikoff. Sayat Nova and I must have fallen a little out of time. Already after two years. After "Mysterious Oud (Extrait de Parfum)" it was and is the only one I'd like to have.

Sayat Nova is an extremely oud-laden fragrance. In principle it could exist as pure oud oil. With two exceptions. The balancing act between medium woodiness and at the same time extreme, somewhat light smokiness is not known to me from any single oud, which is why the three listed oud varieties are very easy to understand. In addition there is a pungent, actually ethereal note, which goes up to the brain. Probably caused by the apricot, just in connection with the oud. I like these wood smoke scents, as they are offered in numerous variations, e.g. by Kerosene. But Sayat Nova kicks the whole range into the barrel. Here the natural ingredients outperform the aforementioned many times over. Added to this is the uncompromising power of the almost black liquid. Wearing it expands my consciousness, because aspiration, quality, performance and a unique position go hand in hand. The fragrance unites so many good qualities of oud that I would like to classify it as one of the best oud fragrances. Everybody who makes oud, but is afraid of touching oud oils, should perhaps make his peace here and let the power of oud work on him.

You know what that is? There are fragrances that you want to have right away, so that they disappear from your wish list and finally shorten it. And there are the ones where you don't really believe in a quick fix. But can you treat a scent like all those who didn't arouse any desire at all? Well buy. I have a special section for such fragrances. And when you receive a package, open it and discover a fragrance from this "I'd like to, but I'll never get it" list, it's much nicer than ordering your #1 of the Most Wanted list in an unsexy way online, and then receiving it from the parcel carrier as planned and checking it off
Thank you PallasCC for fulfilling what was actually more than a wish for me. ♥

A rather dry and dusty, slightly leathery, oriental earthy-woody Fall fragrance, balanced by an inviting, boozy spicy-fruity sweet opening.

A not too sweet gourmand and boozy blend based on clean yet bold oud, syrupy plum and rum-brandy. Worth its price, unlike other Bortnikoffs.
