A mattress
... one that is stuffed with dried grass and has been resting in a dungeon for a while. Sorry. I don't like it - and cannot imagine someone spraying it on themselves.

A Russian Church in a bottle
Maybe this is no scent for people who have never been to a Russian church, to a place like Zagorsk (nowadways called Jewgenij Possad again) or a fairy-tale town like Suzda. If you want to travel to such a place... scentwise... try Zagorsk in a bottle. It is a theme-fragrance, inappropriate for daily use, use in offices and banks...probably an "ambiance-scent", not a skin-scent. Ja ljublju "Zagorsk". Pojechali!

Asbestos in the Attic
Something about Comme des Garçons Incense Series 3 ZAGORSK does not sit well on my skin—or in my lungs. There can be no denying that this is an incense perfume, but it hits me quite a bit differently than KYOTO. ZAGORSK, too, is not very oily or resinous, but the wood of the incense seems more bitter than burnt and slightly rubbery as well.

Like KYOTO, ZAGORSK is also devoid of detectable floral notes, but this composition seems quite a bit more masculine to me. The sillage is rather big for a masculine scent, but this will be perhaps welcome to those who like the peculiar quality of the composition, although I'm wondering how many people would really want to be around other people who smell like this.

I do not mean to suggest that ZAGORSK is repellent, but on the other hand I myself do not find it very appealing at all, and my distinct impression is that, if over-applied, this fragrance might have a mildly suffocating effect—something like breathing at high altitude where oxygen is in short supply or inhabiting an old building with traces of asbestos in the attic.

Needless to say, this one does not work for me.
