Nobel amber bedded on roses
Musc Noble, the next episode of Guerlain's Absolus d'Orient, was not included in Parfumo until it was already on the market in France, although I had had a pre-test for a while. Since I had tested it only fleetingly about 2 weeks ago and my first impression was not too positive, I wanted to wait until the fragrance is listed to test it again in peace, what happened today. It is often the case that my expectations denature a fragrance that is actually quite beautiful. So it is here: The 1st EINruck was less good, the 2nd already substantially better!
As the name suggests, the Absolus were originally designed for the Middle East and are tailored to the taste there. So no pussies or Fluffy gourmands, but the other end of the scale. With the naming of the individual smells I had also so my problems: Thus Santal Royal was e.g. the pure label fraud, because I look for the sandalwood up to today. Also Musc Noble is not exactly what the name promises. Nobel yes, musk absent.
The Absolus, by the way, are rumored to be remixed. Ambre Eternel is doomed (Rose Nacrée du Desert from the sister line Les déserts d'Orient) and the series will be completed by Encens Mythique d'Orient and Songe d'un Bois d'Été, with which they both change from the Deserts d'Orient and extend the Absolus to a total of 5 fragrances. Since the Absolus are available at a relatively low price, one wonders, of course, how the pricing of the "newcomers" will be handled. But back to the scent!
Musc Noble could be seen as a mix of Rose Nacrée and Ambre Eternel, because I find borrowings from both. And if the two also fall down in the back, that is also an indication.
The top note, in any case, is a very amber-heavy, heavy rose mix that develops back and forth between soapy and powdery. After about 30 minutes it becomes softer, more tender and sweeter without ever becoming gourmandig. Amber stays. You can tell me a lot now, but Oud is in there, too, otherwise I would have gotten nose blindness and snap breathing at the first, even more negative test. With the 2nd and "full test" I am warned and do not feel the somewhat biting note any more as unpleasant, but wait, until the bites become less, in order to be able to take up then the oriental rose dessert completely in me.
I remain divided, because the Absolus will never become my best friends, I am too much out for "fluffig". But already the way and quality of this fragrance should be appreciated, and in some places I even find it fantastic...powdery-heavy, rose-beautiful and enormous. I'm just not brave enough to wear it permanently. But if you like Ambre Eternel, Rose Nacrée or the Absolus itself-
Do you dare?
