The Afternoon of a Faun
Opens with a strong tobacco note, which is in fact an accord of immortelle and incense or leather. Bergamot, orris and myrrh modify the dense and rich accord into something light and gauzy. I see a strong soapy accord layered over immortelle and warm spices. The strawflower is relegated to being a supporting note anchoring the fragrance with its woody/hay-like vibe. What I see reminds me very much of YS Uzac's Pohadka. The two fragrances are built with almost the same notes: leather, immortelle, resins, as well as similar green and fresh notes. I prefer Pohadka, because it is more complex and lasts longer. A fairly tame fragrance, once again at odds with the hyper-sexual promo material.
