The unexcited snake
A dry gust sent scattered grains of sand trickling over the shiny black scale segments of the slowly coiling snake. The leathery segments slid almost smoothly over the dry, rugged ground, over brittle woods, and between sporadically growing saffron and patchouli blossoms.

Gucci's The Voice of the Snake comes off as a thoroughly dry oud scent. In the first moments of spraying opens one a very intense medicinal form of the oud chord used here.

Must like - I like it!

Once the first veil of oud has settled, it becomes distinctly leathery. The leather note used here most likely results from the saffron and is more in the light and airy spectrum, rather than the heavy and dark leather. This gives the scent a certain lightness and filigree despite its intensity. Accompanied by a subtle sweetness from the saffron and a warm, nutty, almost cocoa-like hint from the patchouli.

And that was it. Gucci's Voice of the Snake is not grandly complex, nor does the scent have any discernible progression. However, it is not what bothers me a little here. I had to think long and hard until I figured it out - it's the coumarin. For my taste, a little too much has been used here, which results for me in the fact that I'm reminded every now and then to Viktor & Rolf's Spicebomb Extreme.

In conclusion, it can be said that it is quite a nice release, but for me does not have enough unique selling points to move in with me.

Unapologetic dominant
You will find all sorts of fine analysis on the notes of this perfume. Since I have nothing else to add to those, I'll save you the technical stuff. But I will say that one thing that strikes me about this perfume is that unlike other fragrances that put an effort in balancing notes off and creating a harmony with highs and lows and sharps and smooths, etc. this fragrance is bold and rich. The creators have sort of unapologetically stated it's dominant features, without feeling the need to sugarcoat it with unnecessary hints and notes. That aside, it's one of the most long living perfumes I have ever tried. The more interesting fact is that no matter how long after use, if you can still smell it, you will smell all of it's base, subnotes and features. It's as if all of them attenuate together, which indicates they have been well balanced in the first place.

Snake senses
Voice of the Snake wearers have very special sensory organs to ensure their survival.

For example, snakes can see differently. Visually interesting in this case is the nice presentation of the delivered package. In the middle of the finely patterned packaging - protecting the valuable contents - the heavy porcelain flacon is found in the middle of a bag: deep black, artistically decorated.

Snake carriers take up odour and taste particles via their tongue and tongue. The sense of smell is particularly well developed in snakes, otherwise you wouldn't have anything of your own bouquet! By splitting the tongue, the Gucci snake can orient itself spatially with the information it has absorbed. The two tips of the tongue are like fine measuring instruments that distinguish even the smallest differences in odour molecules: Deep shady patchouli, serious saffron and finely cultivated dark wood oud. A pleasing, attractive oud. Equipped in this way, they can perceive their surroundings even when their sense of sight is limited. Preferably at night. This is especially important for escaping prey to places, but also potential enemies and or even finding partners for reproduction. The Duftaura winds its way between mysticism, the mysterious and - due to the fine, pure composition blade - increasing the libido. Discreet tenderness throughout the quietly blazing scent.

While some senses are excellently developed in snakes, the sense of hearing behaves in the opposite way: snakes are almost deaf. They can perceive ground vibrations perceived via the lower jaw. With some species, such as the Voice-of-the-Snake carriers, this means that they are not only warned of approaching enemies, but can also locate and catch prey at night. Only the stretched hissing of the snake bottle when spraying the poison exists - a concise spray head, a soft whisper.

Snakes can also perceive the slightest changes in temperature. Due to their thermal sensation, our snakes are therefore particularly good at tracking down warm-blooded fellow human beings. This means that they can also go hunting in complete darkness. But even during the day the scent remains discreet and the snake remains present.
Voice-of-the-Snake wearers are clever, have an alert mind, don't like hecticness, are interested in enigmatic and mysterious things (Sillage) and are extremely loyal beings (durability) with an unmistakable feeling for fellow human beings (Duft).

The Voice oft the Snake is a truly beguiling and at the same time unconditionally unspoilt, subtly dark and conspiratorial scent. I have warned you of its wearers!

Just another rose saffron oud
Noi! Low tide ned! Koi Rose-Safran-Oud!

After an art tour along the most beautiful bottles in a small perfumery across the pond, which I had initiated without any ulterior motive with a mention of my preference not only for Penhaligon's scents but also their containers towards the sympathetic saleswoman, some actually unsolicited scent samples found their way into the little bag, among them this relatively new Gucci.
Although I commented quite favourably on the Gucci flacons of the new series when I took the lead, my expectations of the fragrance itself were limited. These low expectations I saw confirmed after my yesterday test of the rose scent from the series a bit far.
This made it possible for this fragrance to surprise me all the more - positive.
The oud plays the leading role and comes along without any lovely flowers, rather rugged, and is supported by quite bitter saffron and deep dark, dry patch as extras. You might think that this combination without counterpart is a bit one-sided, but the interesting part is taken over by the volume. He doesn't come stomping into the bar with his baggage, loudly asking for a drink and first insulting everyone present in the most vulgar way, no, he is the stranger with the grim proud look and the threatening charisma, who already sits alone in the dark corner the whole evening and silences the newcomer storming in with a silent look. This guy knows what he's got, and everyone else knows it, without having to shout it out.
Crunchy-dry, bitterly angry, and yet very still.
I like it very much!

Dark, yet soft leather with earthy nuances. Oud can be smelled in the base. The name is well chosen because of its gentle animalic quality.
