A great smell. I like
I love rose scents in all their variety. That much is certain. So of course I had to test the scent, which I did on three days. What can I say? The perfume convinced me and made me on my wish list.

But the first test was full of inhibitions. From the flacon lid it smelled very strong and penetratingly of a really crass Rose-Oud mixture, and then I actually thought that this was the usual Rose-Oud station wagon that is so common these days. ELDO is now also working in this direction? Boring. Not worth the test. So it took another 2 months until one day I decided to finally spray the fragrance on my skin. Such a great bottle! And rose in it!
And what can I say? On the skin, it is not so crass at all, but soft and cuddly. First a green rose bergamot appears. The rose is green, but not fresh, but aromatic, like in herbal and spice malt. Every now and then I smell something that reminds me of leather, but even more of a horse stable with the sweaty horses, so a distinctly animal note (oud?), but a discreet and well-behaved one.

The duet of Rose and Leder(Oud) starts now. The rose now smells restrained, dusty-sweetish (cocoa?) and the "leather" (oud) seems herbal-aromatic to me. The whole thing reminds me remotely of my beloved Mon Nummero 10/ L'Artisan. Very nice. And I'm now enjoying the fragrance to the fullest.

The base is simply dreamlike: soft, well balanced, slightly animalistic, balsamic, for lying down. (And surprisingly, reminds me somehow of "La Femme Boheme" by Edward Bess, whom I love very much. Although there is clearly jasmine in the game. and the scent pyramid looks different ;-)

The shelf life of the fragrance is about 8 hours and the Sillage found quite mediocre, which is an advantage with this rich and somewhat provocative composition.

I like the scent a lot and I'm already excited about "Spice Must Flow", which I absolutely have to test as long as it still exists in the great perfumery in the Kettenbrückengasse in Vienna.
