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. ♥
