Very helpful Review
....And there they are YET!!....
...the fine surprises that you didn't expect. And with it scents that you haven't smelled so much yet. And the dreams that evoke such surprising, fine scents.
And the "kiss of the dragon" is one of those.
It is not only the scent alone, but the way it was composed.
"Le Baiser Du Dragon" begins with an almost indescribable mixture of fresh and almost "oily" fragrances that cause some confusion in my nose. Strange, yet strangely familiar.
I don't know where it's coming from. I guess it won't matter, but I'd like to know.
While I am fascinated and tense with the "top note", something creeps up, with flowers entwined, slightly powdery and warm and woody. All in one, it reinforces the subtly mysterious impression of "strange" familiarity. But the "post-inward research" does not bring any clarification.
It would be an understatement to simply call the fragrance "only good". Hardly any other activity prevents my nose from tracking down the strange Odeur at the moment. And no rationally conclusive explanation for its effect on me to get.
Still busy with this "whirl" of "head and heart notes", a "basic note" has already held in the middle of the action, which the "five elements" earth, wood, fire, metal and water recall in my memory. Nothing esoteric, simply the cornerstones of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with which I had been loosely occupied for a while, and about which I also have a well understandable book.
Earthen The Vetyver... to be quite clear. Fire stands for warm amber, air for subtle musk, metal, a little more difficult to locate...maybe the "Amaretto"? Irony fine reverberation.
Wood is patchouli and cedar, the "fire" behind it determines the flowers, which continue to permeate the fragrance for a long time.
Perhaps the "distant memory" that creeps up on me there is simply the harmony of the most diverse things, and that it is possible.
And a surprise that you can still find something like that.
