Orient for Beginners (version Encens Mythique 2019)
Since oud, camel dung and other heavy oriental fragrances are not for my little blonde European snub nose, I have wanted to test few of them so far. I only like myrrh and incense in small doses. Wood also only as sandal, please. Patchouli only in my vintage Coromandel EdT, etc. etc. So, in fact, I was practically only expected by anxious opponents. That's why I've been bracing myself about the original version since 2012.
But now, in January 2019, the fragrance in the Les Absolus d'Orient series came onto the market in the new bottle and I received a sample. Preliminary testers did not agree whether the new flacon would be accompanied by a new recipe or quality. I can't say it, because I don't know the old version like I said.
But - what I can say is: No fear of big animals, feelings or spices!
This Encens is suitable for daylight, mass compatible and... a gentle Oriental.
From the first creamy spicy saffron moment on, I lost my concerns.
In fact, over time it becomes a bit soft and soapy, but also spicy. With increasing time on my skin, I even discover some wood and a velvety rose, a soothing light earthiness, a very warm, beautiful overall feeling.
It is not loud or obtrusive, does not leave a large veil of scent, but remains on the skin for a long time.
Sweet he is at no time to be called, nothing stabbing, nothing dull, no gothic patch either.
Only inner peace and comfort. Omm.
