My Amber Number 37
.
Ryder - Ex Idolo

.
I'm going to the swamp!
.
Slaved to passion and guilty of bank account. Amber-loaded. And I see no beginning, only end. The last thoughts wander over the brown moor. Over the green unfathomable depths, the dark circles and again and again the oily brown. Thick and melancholy, Caribbean, opulent, oppressive, cuddly and soft and silently devouring. The moor.
.
My last consolation, one last time: Smell Ryder! And die
.
Ryder. A powerful elixir, for you a mysterious green. Mud. Slightly animalistic humming, under bushes of jasmine and stink. You step on resinous woods, you circle the moor, you step on creamy dark amber, you brush the heavy dew from tobacco leaves and sweet honey scent from green twigs. It is all so heavy. Amber full. Amber heavy and frankincense gushes like steam from the crevices. Minute by minute. Kick by kick. Step by step. Around the moor. The circle is complete.
.
So, did you find yourself?
.
Velvet memories. Soothing. Thoughtful. Cuddling. Sex of the sticky kind. Or. Pipe smoking. And. Spanish brandy in the twilight. Or. Greek metaxa. And. Cognac XO as a revelation. Or. Sex of the levitating kind. Guy's getting frisky. Saved .
Call the bank. Extend credit. Buy Ryder. Can thank.
.
Life.

A Composition Smoked By Smoky Amber...
Ryder goes on with a moderately sweet smoky amber and pipe tobacco-like accord. Moving to the early heart, the composition stays relatively linear, as moderately sweet smoky amber grows in strength, becoming sole star, with the supporting pipe tobacco taking on a slightly booze-laden cola aspect while adding a natural cedar wood undertone. During the late dry-down the amber all but vacates with its remnants turning relatively dry, as slightly powdery vanilla and faint jasmine join-in, over a dry, stark natural woody base. Projection is excellent, as is longevity at around 15 hours on skin.

Ex Idolo's first offering, Thirty-Three, was a surprisingly superb outing from relative rookie perfumer Matthew Zhuk. After being wowed enough by Mr. Zhuk's first composition, obviously his second, Ryder, merited a sniff tout de suite. Having given the new offering several full wearings on skin it is time to see how Mr. Zhuk fared on attempt two for his house. The short early answer is "OK"... Smoky amber seems to be all the rage nowadays, and it seems like only yesterday I was wowed with Tango by Masque and many others of lesser quality. Here, Mr. Zhuk pairs the smoky amber (that smells not unlike relatively sweet smoldering wood to a large degree) with a not quite believable supporting pipe tobacco accord that actually smells more like cola syrup (or at least as a significant component of the accord). More believable are the natural deep cedar-like woods, conjuring up the planks used at a tobacconist shop or maybe even a humidor. The whole thing has been done before, but the cola is something relatively new, and the execution by Zhuk is excellent. The problem, aside from the lack of innovation, is the smoky amber is just a bit too much. It initially impresses, but as time passes it gnaws away at your senses, wearing out its welcome in relative short order. The gentle powdery vanilla and vague woods in the base are a pleasant but mundane affair; welcome to a degree after the smoky amber onslaught, but ultimately meriting a shoulder shrug. The bottom line is the $185 per 50ml Ryder is the kind of composition that impresses early, but as time passes and on future wearings when one looks beyond the initial polish on further reflection really is nothing new, earning an above average 2.5 to 3 stars out of 5 and a neutral recommendation with a positive bias. If one is looking for a smoky amber composition, Tango by Masque is a superior offering outright, while also providing a bit better bang for the buck.

Beautiful, durable, classic amber, slightly on the darker side. Perhaps the name: but there is a connection with a ride in a fall forest

Creamy smoky amber fragrance, deep the whole time. In the later development, it is silky smooth and comfortably warm. Top!

A dirty, dusty soldier, blood smeared. Buries his comrade and rides away through the blatant, uncaring sun.
