A sexy beast
My skin really pushes the licorice/anise scent, with the tuberose and civet coming through. The black pepper wafts by as well, but I got a good dose of that on the top notes. As we continue with the dry down, the vanilla is starting to emerge. Very interesting fragrance. Sillage is good, but longevity seems to be wanting on me.

Purr, Kitty, Purr Purr....
Beast Mode contains of pretty much everything Chris doesn't like. Maximum degree of difficulty. His idea was to create a fragrance from precisely these challenging ingredients.

Essentially, I perceive vanilla and anise, which are of natural origin of Chris´ own studio tinctures and therefore do not smell excessively sweet or sticky. Everything is extremely harmonious. The tuberose adds minimal flowery aspects underneath.

The animalics of the civet, which Chris himself also describes close to Ambergris, is in fact clearly perceptible.

And now it's getting weird. It's supposed to be a good portion of Ambroxan in the fragrance. And I don't smell anything of that - nothing. Nada. ZERO. I avoid fragrances with a lot of Ambrox or only accept this note in small doses. In other, mostly desinger fragrances, I perceive Ambroxan very clearly.

With Beast Mode Chris portrays and caricatures currents in the world of fragrance in my perception. With the exception of Zibet, which I would consider a more traditional ingredient, all the others felt to be the I-WIN-BUTTON of the (mainstream) perfume kits.

A reckoning?

Hell no!

Rather a very conscious wink and play with own preferences vs. market trends.

The result is a very wearable fragrance that does not trigger any Beast Mode per se. The beast here is probably the civet, which already steers very clearly animalistic against the "uniform mush" of the other ingredients. Chris manages it, that these so often smelled ingredients are nicely blended and excitingly natural, without overamping them to mass please.

The caricature is above all the name of the scent. After all, Beast Mode stands for one of the most intolerable phrases (and behaviors) in the world of fragrance. Somewhere between arrogance, ignorance and a lack of social skills.

It is, as always, a story to tell and to hear.

To create something so beautiful out of things you don't like, is definitely art.

But we already knew that about Chris.

He´s the be(a)st.
