Wild and free!
The fragrance here was interestingly named after an Indian yogi. Somehow its creator thought it would carry something spiritual, perhaps even sacred. However, this differs from my own sensation of the scent. Instead of tranquility and balance, the Yogananda represents something wild. It is an untamable animal what lives in the bottle. After a few sprays, the animal, which has been dormant, is let out of its "cage". As soon as the barrier opened, it knew no restraint. The first moment after spraying reminds me of a scene from the movie "Highlander", when Mel Gibson screams "Freedom!" on his horse.

Now for the more technical description:
Although flowers were used in Yogananda's composition, you might not recognize them individually. Instead, the top note is where the coarse animalic comes into its own. Now and then this is rounded off a little by benzoin. Presumably, this is a high-quality Indian oud, which provides for this effect. The cedar gives the fiery beast a sharp edge, yet the whole is very balanced. The dance of the wild beast is the main theme of this fragrance, though it tames down a bit in the base. You could say the animal is lying down on a mossy forest floor, surrounded by old trees whose leaves have long since stopped being green. Here you can smell the moisture in the air, the resins and the wood of the trees with an animalic sweetness, but not cloying (presumably the civet cat). This phase is a bit calmer and not as dynamic as the beginning; here the fragrance reaches its equilibrium in the olfactory sense.

As with many MGOs, this is a one-off.... around an experience. However, one must have some patience so that one is not overwhelmed by the fragrance. For adventurous noses, it will certainly be an exciting roller coaster ride. However, if you are looking for something calmer, you should rather reach for Tranquilla.

As described
I think it rarely happens to me that reading the notes before smelling a perfume, I can imagine how it smells.
This is one of those cases.
I would say it smells just as it is described.
It reminds me a lot of one of my favorites from Bortnikoff: Sans Fleurs, in terms of oud and vanilla, but in this case there are flowers and no background liquor.
It is a very natural smell of oud, it smells like those of other famous perfumes that use it, at least. If it were synthetic (I think yes), it is very successful imitating the natural one. Vanilla is powerful too, and the animalic touch gives it a lot of contour and favors the sweet spot of the oud woods.
It is not particularly prominent in silage, but it is decent.
Pretty good duration, 8 hours on my skin is a lot, only the real monsters of the "niche perfume" market top that mark.

It takes personality and a certain charisma and character, say, "gothic" for this type of fragrance to give the person all their splendor at any time of the day or season of the year.
For less risky and moderate personalities, I would say that it is suitable to wear in autumn-winter and at night.
It is not exactly a perfume of light.
Recommended to try vampires plenty of elegance.

The animal in you
Lifted out of plant rooms
waves an endless green sea.
Lianas covered giant trees
break through their army with all their might
It twitches in the gloomy green;
it steams, like ironing leaves.
Many thousands of voices, blossom:
overturning, shrieking, resenting!

The humidity of the air carries life.
It steams and shimmers all the time.
Emeralds birds rise;
The scent of the animal kingdom an evening gown.

Yogananda - woody-animalistic? Animalistic yes and not a little bit. You have to like it and not feel "disgusting". I can understand the comments here, but it seems that
i've gotten used to my nose.
Yogananda is muggy-dirty-green. The Indian oud is like walking past places in the jungle that were peed on some time ago by purring dirty cats. Not fresh, but already drawn into the leaves. But definitely marked. Jasmine also contributes to the fact that it sticks pompously in the nose. Rose and Neroli like two siblings, which are separated by the
Running in the jungle and wanting to cover everything with her scent.
But Zibet is persistent. With time and its own body heat it becomes softer and "lighter", but it is always present.
One might think that vanilla is the icing on the cake to everything green, steamy and animalistic, which makes the barrel overflow and demands a certain gag reflex. But not so! Like two big hands, all the scents are caught, caressed and gently turned into a small ball of wool, which is then pushed through the dense jungle with verve.
The ground is musky soft and the ball of wool flits its way with ease.
It becomes warm woody and slightly earthy. A touch of sweetness leaves a fine mist.
I find Yogananda to be a wonderful, complex and animalistically well thought-out fragrance. He is not just animalistic, dirty. The scents are a perfect match. Yes, the beginning is severe. But it just takes time I like it and I'm wearing it. With passion
.
Thank you dear Pollita

Holidays at the riding school
When I was ten years old I was allowed to take my first holiday at the riding stable. In almost all my school holidays I spent at least one week on this beautiful, idyllic farm in the middle of nowhere. My parents were happy to have some peace and quiet. And I enjoyed the exciting time with the other children and the horses in nature.

I'll never forget the smell of this farm. A lot of grass was fed, which could be perceived not only in the horse boxes but also from the horses' nostrils. Mixed with the grass, the horse's nose always smelled to me like a mixture of honey, dried mushrooms and just this enigmatic green freshness. How I loved to sniff the nostrils of a dear horse. Of course, the stable also smelled a bit urine-y - that's part of it. After all, horses have to have a go. Sawdust was sprinkled there, which gave it a woody tone. When I went into the tack room, a fine note of leather mixed with the sometimes acrid sweat of the proud animals hit me. Also the saddle soap spread its characteristic smell.

Every morning we helped children with bedding. It was not a must, but I was one of the guests on the farm who liked to help. Afterwards there was breakfast and then came the exciting moment. The horses were divided up. I wonder who I'll get to ride today Joy or disappointment? There were no riding lessons on Sundays. Instead, a carriage ride with wonderfully decorated horses was on the program.

We often raged in the haystack. I remember that smell, too, as if it was yesterday. Somewhere in the cleaning box there was always a hoof ointment. It does not smell good, but should be applied to the cleaned hooves at least once a week to keep the feet of the four-legged friends healthy.

All the smells of the farm I sniff in Yogananda. I cannot tell which note is responsible for which impression. I simply have too little experience with this kind of scent. It's like being back there. The sun is shining, we take the horses to the paddock and confide our secrets. The first cigarettes are tasted.

Yogananda is certainly not a fragrance I would go out in public with. He smells of stable, tack room, horse's hoof, hoof ointment, and grass and hay. Spray it once and the holidays at the riding school with all the memories are immediately tangible again.

Many thanks to Can777 for the sample.

Between minimum and maximum...
animal lies... in a (still) bearable dose.

Sorry for this underground calamity and the not very productive commentary. Actually it would have needed only a small addition - no - a concretization of my statement. But what should I add at 140 characters. Then I tried to delete it. But why? It's still true, though. That's how I felt 23 days ago.

And then happened what has happened to me many times before. You reapply a fragrance a few weeks apart and recognize it immediately. And yet the perception is different. For me it's usually a clearer one. No detection of every tiny movement over a course of several hours. We had already done this the first time and therefore the analytical could make way for sensual perception. So it is more an "overall view" than a DNA analysis.

For me, Yogananda is the limit of the bearable in terms of animalistics. I find it extraordinary, exciting and risky. Having self-confidence and achieving with Yogananda interacts.

The rest is as written. I blame the Thai oud and the civet for this dirty, animal note. And one thing straight away: It doesn't wear off (apart from the first seconds of shock). Embedded in softer wood and bitter floral notes. A contrast that works well here.

My association of a Southeast Asian scent in the country, in the sultriness after the rain, falls very easily with Yogananda. Wanderlust!

If you like "No 50: Civet Cat Chypre", you will love this one too! Beautiful blend of animalics. Starts off with a roar, ends with a purr...
