Dark and sexy, with a dirty edge.
Man this one packs a wallop! Sepal is sexy and dirty and loud. No shy, retiring violets here of any kind. I get angry orange blossom, sweat, makeup, musk and sweet tangy citrus.
I adore this, but I can see why a lot of people wouldn't. It isn't gentle or calm, it is strident and takes-no-prisoners. Smells like flowers and fruit in the hot sun, with a blast of sweat and musk for good measure. I wear it when I feel like a messy night out on the town. I can't imagine wearing this somewhere polite, let alone to work.
This makes ELdO's Putain de Palaces look like a chaste maiden by comparison. This chick is an unwashed beauty. The smells of human mashed with the smells of flowers and syrup. Heavy, sweet and beautiful!
Also there is a mothball-like edge to me, which I think is the indolic part?, either way it works and stops the perfume from being sickly-sweet. I love it, but I suspect it's a "love-or-hate-" kind of perfume.

Filthy/Gorgeous
Sepal is a skanky, loud, animalic orange-blossom.

Loaded with indolic white florals, sweaty musks and overripe citrus, Sepal is not a 'safe' frag by any stretch of the imagination. Sepal opens with poisonously sweet orange blossoms and overripe mandarin. Even in the opening, the heavy indole and civet are already clear, and it only gets dirtier from then on.

As the heart moves in the projection settles into a humming, warm skank. The sexy, dirty musk starts to sing and the florals lose their heady edge and become sweeter, darker, and more sultry. The entire thing has an 1800's French brothel kind of vibe. The smells of sex and sweat mixed with sweet, cloying florals.

Certainly not everyone's cup of tea - Sepal is aggressively sexual, unabashed and unashamed. But if you like your florals on the far side of grungy, or are a fan of animalic 'fumes this is a must-try.
Longevity is pretty good, about 4 hours of loud projection and another 3-4 hours as a glowing skin-scent. Projection is quite loud for the first half of the wear-time, gradually simmering down into barnyard musks and flowers as time goes on. I would class this as a little on the feminine side of unisex, but certainly a man could pull this off if he had the attitude to match.
