Would You Like Some Iodine With Your Heliotrope?...
Jarling opens with a relatively sweet, syrupy vanilla and anise tandem with hints of almond-like floral heliotrope in initial support. As the composition moves to its early heart the sweetened almond-like heliotrope gathers tremendous steam, adding a mild powdery nutmeg spiced vanilla facet with a subtle iodine-like tinge as the star anise remains, now in significant support. During the late dry-down the anise vacates and the iodine spiked heliotrope gradually recedes, with the vanilla remaining sans most of its initial sweetness through the finish. Projection is on the low side of average and longevity is dead-center average at 8 hours on skin.

Jarling is an odd composition for sure. At its heart, the primary focus is to showcase a relatively linear presentation of high quality heliotrope with its almond and vanilla-like facets out in the open. What I couldn't get past, and in fact really disliked was the almost blood-like semi-metallic smelling iodine aspect detected in the background relatively early in the key mid-section, not to mention the strange anise presentation that didn't quite mesh well with the heliotrope. Once the iodine and anise vacated the vanilla focused late dry-down was very nice indeed. At the end of the day though, Jarling seems more than a bit too linear on the one hand, and too off-putting early on the other. The key test of a truly good composition is would someone want to wear it, and in the case of Jarling despite its obvious top-notch ingredients the answer is a resounding "no." The bottom line is Jarling is a composition that obviously spares no expense, but the final result is near unwearable, earning it a "above average" rating of 2.5 to 3 stars out of 5, but an avoid recommendation due to its severe lack of versatility.
