Modern Rose-Oud with a Musky Twist
I didn't get noticeable grapefruit during the opening of L'essence Bruno. It starts plush and musky right away on my skin. An incense-like note lies under this earthy yet clean musk, which eventually reveals itself as the oud note in the later stages. Spicy patchouli and rubbery saffron dance around the edge, providing subtle complexity to this sensual blend. I quite enjoy these first 30 minutes of L'essence Bruno.

Unfortunately, when the sweet raspberry-like rose note appears and gets stronger with time, it goes south for me. Together with the dry oud, they form a ubiquitous, one-dimensional sweet rose-oud that I don't particularly care for. It does remind me of the sweet rose-oud base in several Nasomatto, but less abrasively smoky, and with a thick dollop of clean, papery musk added on the top. There is also a salty ambery base underneath, which is quite interesting. But this sweet rose-oud accord is too distracting for me to enjoy the fragrance as a whole.

I get a heavy to moderate sillage with L'essence Bruno, and it lasts easily for 10 hours.

Because of my personal grudge against certain types of rose-oud accord, L'essence Bruno is ultimately not my cup of tea. But the opening stage of earthy, incense-y musk is quite enjoyable. I would recommend it to those who enjoy modern western rose-oud such as Nasomatto or Tom Ford, and would like an earthy musky twist.
