Grotesque entrance
It smells like Copal Azur from the tube! After spraying on, however, the thought is wiped away within seconds. The carnation and the säuerlich incense enter into a very questionable alliance with (sandal?) sweetness, which first reminds of vomit, then of stingily spoiled fruit. Banged honeydew melon, maybe. A quarter of an hour later I think - the sour ability of the incense is amazing in this respect - of freshly cut tomatoes with pepper and salt. And of course incense.

In the second hour the incense is dominant with some distance from the skin, that is great, so I am spared the mischief. Because neither the melon nor the tomato are completely defeated in close combat. While maintaining this distance, the fragrance is quite good, with an airy spice and a hint of sweet fruit hovering next to the incense. Just don't get too close.

India Ink' doesn't work any different from other more or less sweetly dabbed incense, but we don't want to criticize what we have experienced so far. Praiseworthy to mention is an original limonadesque approach from midday onwards - possibly requiring the strenuous preliminary work.

I wouldn't have come across a contribution from Oud without an announcement. Although I can imagine a trace of wood in time that goes beyond diffuse (Amyris?) creaminess, India Ink does not develop a noteworthy woody impact until the afternoon. And this may well please you, even though I still find the term "Oud" difficult to use. I think it smells like mahogany and goes very well with incense. I think at times of 'Preludio d'Oriente' by Calé Fragranze d'Autore - although that may be deceiving, the Italian has long since moved away.

Conclusion: I do not understand why such a Bohei was necessary in the front. The grotesque introduction unfortunately seems silly in the majority of the fragrance. Nevertheless: Over long distances we have to do it with a beautiful smell.

I thank KingLui for the rehearsal.
