... is the price compared to the other scents from the House of Matriarch. But just as unfair is the current average assessment of shelf life and Sillage.

I don't know if any scent out there justifies such a price. Anyway, this one doesn't do it (for me). One must probably first try the description on Herstellerins homepage, in order to talk oneself this investment beautifully. There it says in reverent and pompous advertising words:

Lebanese cedars distilled in Washington, royal incense mix from Arabia, Indian sandalwood from the 1950s and New Zealand ambergris from the 1920s.

It is really nice that Christ Meshell collects the remains here worldwide and tips the extracts into small glass containers before they are thrown away, but not everything that is rare must smell good. Please do not misunderstand, and I will come to the positive aspects in a moment, but that is out of proportion to the result. Here a status symbol should be created and its owner should learn the above mentioned ingredients by heart to impress others.

The fragrance is dry, woody, slightly leathery and the ambergris resonates darkly. It's the only jewellery in this rough fissured formation. A certain nutiness emerges and counteracts an overemphasis of the incense. Once this is fended off - which I personally think is good without restrictions before it gets too dust-dry again - an earthy creaminess occurs.

It's one of the few "reciprocal developers" I have in my collection. And it is possible that the previous evaluators did not have enough material available or were understandably sparing with it in view of the price. I put on 0.5 ml today. So in my case that's a paltry 3.70 euros. >>If you've just heard something clap. That's when my bare hand hit my naked forehead.
