More subtle than the church allows
If the Catholic Church and its dignitaries were like this scent, one would not have to worry about this institution. For me a subtle fragrance, with a lot of sensitivity, with great care, accuracy proceeding or executed; going into the subtleties; differentiated.
...but in a church-related situation... finely structured, making it difficult to see through and understand. That too means subtle.
Every personal evaluation is always subjective, deserves respect and acceptance. Even if the feeling and evaluation sometimes elude one, the other person sees and smells it that way and that's it.
Here now my subjective feeling...
Perhaps this Cardinal is so finely structured and so difficult to see through that one would like to imagine that where there is a lot of incense on it, there must also be a lot of soft smoke in it.
Because other components do not dominate and everything is so finely woven, do you look for components? I felt like this and with the Holy Spirit, I have already perceived scents that were clearly smokier (Tyrannus, Norne, Precious Woods, N°. XXII - Black Afghan, even Oud Muataq, just to name a few).
That this fine fragrance Cardinal should be so smoky, I explain to myself only with the fact that the other components are difficult to recognize and incense is at least finely perceptible, very fine. Linen, slightly citrusy, fresh, creamy, mildly spicy and sweet, I still perceive, everything rather subtle. Otherwise it is really difficult for me to decompose this scent. I want to leave it at that, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Cardinal is a very soft, fine, light composition, which I would like to see and let it affect me as a whole.
A work for the quiet, sensitive and empathetic times of life.
