Light musky oriental of no particular interest
On the cardboard-wrapping of my sample, perfumer Christine Nagel "disclosed" her recipe for this fragrance.
Top notes: 2 bergamot peels, 3 fresh wild blackberries, 1 pinch of violet
Heart: 7 dewy rose petals, 3 jasmine flowers, 2 buds of lily of the valley,
1 drop of rhubarb
Base: 3 ½ cups of black and white musk, 2 dashes of black amber, 1 patchouli leaf,
1 ½ shells of golden vanilla

"A new recipe of olfactory seduction" - well, I was very curious to try this one. It turns out to be a very well-behaved, pleasant skin-scent with moderate sillage and no particular seductive powers whatsoever. Of course the recipe so kindly disclosed by the manufacturer is ridiculous - who would be such a fool to give away the tricks of the trade? Roses and jasmine are hardly discernable in this fragrance, which turns very musky on my skin (well, Nagel used "three and a half cups of black and white musk" - more than anything else, it's the dominant ingredient!)
"Postion" is an unobtrusive, slightly fruity and very light musky oriental, perfectly acceptable but neither interesting nor unique let alone outstanding. I used to admire Christine Nagel a lot, she's the author of great and truly original perfumes (e.g. Theorema by Fendi, Mauboussin, Miss Dior Chérie 2005, Si Lolita - ...) but her new "Potion" is nothing I'd want to call my own.

Magic Potion
I love this. Its sweet and woody not what I imediatly expected from Dsquared.
In the topnotes I can smell the blackberry, rose and violet very well, it blends nicely with the bergamot and whiffs of rubarb. It makes the opening of potion fresh but it doesnt stay that way. The dry down is warm, as the scent gets softer, I start to smell the patchouli, vanilla and amber. The scent turns from fruity to a bit oriental. When the scent warms on skin I like it more and more.
I will definatly buy this scent its lovely
