Superb and Superfluous...
Triad skips detectable top notes, instead starting directly at its development heart. As the composition enters its early heart a lush, jammy rose emerges and takes the fore, with super-smooth non-fecal smelling real oud in support, underpinned by just a hint of sweet, almost liquid benzoin rising from the base. During the late dry-down the smooth real oud becomes only just detectable, as musk-like hyrax from the base is unveiled and takes the fore, joining the receding remnants of the rose through the finish. Projection is excellent, as is longevity at around 12 hours on skin.

It is easy to call Triad a successful composition. The rather simplistic combination of rose and oud has been tried and tested hundreds of times before, but in the case of Triad the distinguishing attribute is ingredient quality. It is rather obvious from initial application that top quality naturals comprise most of the ingredients. The rose is extremely natural smelling and oh so lush, while the oud used is obviously the real deal and extremely high quality super-smooth stuff. Only in the late dry-down do hints of the subtle animalic facet of the composition come out, as what most likely is real hyrax adds a subtle musky dimension to the rose that never is over-the-top or unpleasant. In fact, the composition is always conservative, sophisticated and classy throughout. The only thing that prevents this writer from calling Triad outstanding is that despite its obvious ingredient and construction quality, other similar quality rose and oud compositions have come before it like the superb, similar smelling, much less expensive Thirty-Three from Ex Idolo, making Triad somewhat superfluous despite its excellence. The bottom line is the $350 per 50 ml Triad is an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 rated rose oud concoction, but while featuring top quality materials and fine execution by the perfumer, it plows no new ground and is matched by others in the space to make recommending a purchase very difficult.

Dmitry goes Summer
A lot of different oudhs. My expectation was definitely to get something in the direction of Oud Luwak or Oud Monarch. But far from it.

No dark chocolate tones. No barn. No smoke. No resin
Triad is citric, flowery and slightly woody. The opening is very bright and almost a bit pungent. In my case I immediately found parallels to Oud Assoluto from Pineider. The exact same chord. Only at the time when I discovered Pineider for me, it was a new interpretation of the theme Oudh, a completely own direction
Now, of course, Dmitry is presenting Triad, a natural product in an extract format, with a lot of dedication and not insignificant resources. And yet the comparison on the level of fragrance is not misleading.

Yeah, there's no Bortnikoff fragrance like that yet. And just after the trials in Neroli from the last collection, I was still surprised that Dmitry is going back to this theme. Is the citric in Sri Lanka Oudh?

Maybe.

Although I like this one best from the new collection so far, especially because it conjures up light tobacco somewhere, a 9ml pen is absolutely sufficient. In the end I wore the Pineider Oud Assoluto far too little to want to keep it.

For those who like citrusy woody scents with a light, subliminal aroma of wood and flowers, this Bortnikoff is highly recommended.

It goes with the summer.
