Radio Bombay
A handmade transistor radio housed in soft sandalwood crackles out a burst of music in the stifling summer heat of Bandra, Mumbai. The copper tubes warm the wood, releasing smooth, creamy ribbons of fragrance, the air richly inflected with local spices, fruit ripening on the trees, flowers from the market, and the musk of millions of people making their way through the sun-shot city. Gentle and natural with one sniff, vibrant and energetic with the next, Radio Bombay is an elusive new sandalwood as only D.S. & Durga would think to make it- completely infused with the spirit and soul of India.

Same Stunning
Since these days I'm focused on really good niche perfumers, it's no surprise when a new stunner arrives. Just the other day I was fainting on the floor from Slumberhouse Lanz. Now arrives a surprise from hubby who sent this similarly brilliant Ambergris, Iris, Boronia and Sandalwood creation. David Seth Moltz adds copper to the mix instead of Ambrette seed, Cedar instead of Oud. It makes me think of sitting in the radio room of the Titanic, desperately telegraphing* as the plush ship went down. The copper brings the metal being pounded, Cedar and Balsam fir bring the man at the wooden desk, and Ambergris the sea. This is a just gorgeous scent with perhaps slightly more longevity and projection than Josh's Lanz. I'm wearing it and the only reason I'm not on the floor is I was there all day before yesterday with Lanz.

One more is coming, the new Bogue, and I can barely stand the wait. I'm at the point where I'll buy anything these three houses produce, sight unseen...or rather, scent unsmelled.

Dill leaves in the opening, then ambergris and coconut dominate most of the scent. Some darker, heavier woody notes linger around.
