Need some more years to understand the 'Art' hidden in it......

How curious I was to test this and how disappointed I am after sampling it , I can't say I hate it but One thing I can surely say that I can't stand it until it settles down to a fairly good drydown , but the opening is really very difficult to survive with especially in the hot and humid climate , may be it's because of the blending of CIVET; which is not every perfumer's thing, I love Civet in Kouros blended in honey by One of the greatest perfumer ever.

Synthetic notes of Amber and Cloves (eugenol) with a hint of Lavender makes it sticky sweet and cloying, suddenly Animalic notes of Civet kicks in, this is the stage where the problem starts, it has not been handled properly imho and it transforms into a play-doh like smell of something dated with a huge silage.

The musky / powdery drydown is probably one of the most lovely part of this complex creation but you have to wait for several hours to reach that stage and you must be in an ambiance with controlled temperature otherwise it stinks.
MR is a complex fragrance and worth a try at least.
