Fougère? Horreur!
OK, I can't stand sweet-powdery old-school Fougères most of the time, it's a nasal agony on the level of plastic aquatics and shower yellow bombs for me. So in that sense, Mr Balode is a doomed man. And indeed, I find him horrible. A stabbingly iridescent start. Instead of clear lavender or other fresh green notes, a very unpleasant powdery-soapy mishmash towards the perfumery department shortly before closing time. Partly scratchy-sweet (Tonka can be so beautiful), partly greenish-violet-like (fractionated Ionone?), partly powdery, partly pungent woody - "everything I hate about perfume" and that with a natural scent?! A horror fougère at the other end of the scale of the brilliant Heart of Darkness by Providence Perfume. In the drydown it becomes a bit spicier and fruity notes appear in the background, but it remains a nose burner without a spine. For me a compositionally helpless variant of Biehl's eo02, which on the other hand smoothly and perfectly modernizes a classic scent scheme and makes it interesting with Davana. While others - also appreciated by me - classify Nasen Balode as one of the better Florascent fragrances, for me it is the worst so far.
