Diluted, but not diluted
Out of curiosity I ordered a sample from AlzD 5 years ago. I immediately liked Sequioa, but I still find it difficult to describe him. I'll try anyway.
The absence of a note tree already indicates: Sequoia is linear. All notes appear to me to be equally long-lived and almost equally strong. Apart from the mahogany note, all notes are more or less sweet, even the Chinese oud: it is described as first medicinal, then woody and sweet with a dry finish. To the sweetness (quasi) of all notes comes a certain fresh-fruity note, fine and not too sweet itself. If I had to guess, I'd say Granny Smith, but I'm not too good with apples. In addition to the (light) woody-sweet mixture, the last notable factor is rum. Characteristically decently spicy, also sweet, but more than sweet so...watery. She doesn't seem alcoholic to me. The same sweet-spicy dilution I also know from Kilian's Straight to Heaven and Joop's Homme Wild. Since the note is not too dominant, it goes down a bit in all compositions, here just behind wood and apple.
The endurance was neither positive nor negative for me, it is in the green range of about 7 hours. The Sillage seemed to me always quite close to the body, but in a club I was asked about it! I'm afraid not because I liked it, and not the opposite sex. Very bad :/
So: sweet, woody, with spicy and fruity hints. Sounds funny, but it is; is better than it sounds, and it sounds like it's worth a few tests.
