Ma Bêtch
"A fierce beast with raunchy elegance", according to Antoine Lie himself.

The 'beastly' musks here are functional and support the overall suggestion of a vintage fur coat, boudoir style. I get a sense of cold-hearted ruthlessness, rather than seduction or glamour, though. In my book that is not necessarily a bad thing, by the way.

Actually, this could qualify as a floral-aldehyde. Mild florals, mainly neroli, and a bit of dry spice on top of an aldehyde-patchouli base. Vintage and classy. Of course, the blasphemous amount of musks steers this far far away from the rest in this genre. Various types of musk introduce themselves in an overwhelming opening blast. They seem to disappear slowly, but close to skin there is still a clear vibe of raunchy animalics.

After that Big Bang of musks, there is an accumulation of high pitched notes -neroli, spice, aldehydes and a sharp woody note- that feel particularly dry and piercing. This continuous sharp angle kind of gets on my nerve. It takes a few hours to settle down into a much more balanced floral-aldehyde, but by that time I have already lost interest in the scent. Pity.

Animalic Musks
It seems to me that all Eris fragrances have an animalistic nuance to one degree or another, but this one is the dirtiest of all of them (in a good, fragrant way). Classic floral blend with “human” musks on a chypre-aldehyde base. The aldehydes are so crispy here that sometimes it smells like washing powder. It’s very attractive and dangerously-animalic composition. And, it remindes me of Tsarine by Senyoko, which I already have, otherwise it would have been a contender for a full bottle.

Initially fresh and soapy citric-floral, a gentle and dry, animalic/leathery, spicy-woody Chypre, on a warm and musky earthy-woody base.
