Feet on/in the soil
I should have been buried, when I wore this. In the rich soil, or beneath this beautiful fragrance.

Rotten woods, dark branches, soil, exuberant strength, health of a planet. The sharp spicy-woody eyes gazing at you from the odor at the beginning will melted to oilseeds, calm trustfulness. This is really a fragrance that stays beside you, gives you strength and willpower to do what you have to do. It is beyond perfumes, it is more and less at the same time, an older, strong, wise friend.

But... if I would have a zombi friend, I would recommend him/her/it as well to wear this perfume ASAP!

Great Dry-down But Not Worth The Journey To Get There...
Nuit Epicee opens with a quick rhubarb note that near immediately transitions to a dark spicy cumin heart. The cumin here thankfully is well-implemented and does not come off on skin as "BO" like so many do. Permeating the spicy heart is a unbelievably strong synthetic woody accord that is near certainly the handiwork of norlimbanol. The faux woods absolutely begin to dominate the spice and any other underlying notes there may be. Finally about 5 hours into the development, the synthetics begin to dissipate, allowing a very nice violet and only slightly sweet amber driven dry-down to take the fore, with the faux woods now much more manageable in their new supporting role. Projection is well below average, but longevity is excellent.

There really is a decent scent to be had here if you can make it past the first few hours of norlimbanol torture. That said, if I were not specifically trying the scent out for a review I would never have hung around long enough to get to the great violet driven dry-down as the synthetics are just way too much here and I can't stand norlimbanol unless used very sparingly. Spice was what I was expecting to be the star, and it really never does take on that role. Having now made it to the dry-down I have to increase my rating of the scent to a below average to average 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5, but the early heart is a definite 1 out of 5 for sure. Be careful with this one if you do not enjoy synthetic woods.
