Kerosene / Blackmail
Well ... I was gone from the first sniff. This mix of resin (including agar), incense smoke, burnt wood and fruit - smoked and smoky plums, blueberries and sweet raspberries - great. Awesome perfume and an idea.
I am not a fan of sweet perfumes, after 3-4 hours they turn slightly sweet, but not overpowering (thank goodness). A very original combination of ingredients. Perfumes that I like very much - especially in fall, winter and early (cooler) spring.
One of the best Kerosene perfumes in my opinion and very durable (up to 10 hours).
Apart from them, I recommend:
- Broken Theories (tobacco, sandalwood, orange, spices, incense, agar) - who remembers the smell of smoke in disco clubs and the smell of floating scented cigarillos? For me, this is the smell - ehhh- it's great
- Follow (coffee, ristretto, maple syrup, vanilla) - the strongest coffee beans I have felt
- Copper Skies (tobacco, ambergris, honey and cedar)

and the interesting:
- wood heaven (interesting woodcutter)
- r'oud .... (strong woody agar-like Bois Noir by Piguet)
- sacred memory (nice ... whiskey, wood, tobacco, musk and ... berries)
- walk the sea (freshness, water, sea, breeze).

A: Slainté! Cranberry Juice. B: It's a natural diuretic - my girlfriend drinks it when she has her period. Do you have your period... ?
Many may wonder how I come up with the headline - it's a quote from one of my all-time favorite movies (The Departed) and definitely one of the best scenes in the whole movie - but what does that have to do with this scent now?

Well - I opened the bottle & sprayed the first two sprays on my neck & the immediate association that followed was: freshly squeezed cranberry juice!
And in my mind, said scene immediately played out...

Prelude:
Freshly pressed säuerlich-harsh cranberry juice - in the first minute very refreshing - then becoming increasingly tart, gradually ambrierend and after a good 5 min comes a (still) discreet smokiness to it - vanilla I do not perceive now yet.

Course:
Cranberry now turns into a berry mixture (as if you throw a bag of frozen berry mix in the smoothie maker & mix once fully through - tangy! Different berries can be smelled out with me especially now sweeter cranberries (vanilla now joins in...), wild strawberries and black currants, the latter give the sweetness a nice sour contrast. Vanilla now spreads more & more & also the oud gets smokier & smokier - I'd be interested at this point what kind of oud was used.... (Laotian? No, to this the medical is missing...)

Conclusion:
As described in the course, the fragrance remains on my skin (4 sprays total) for 9-10 h at a good arm's length well perceptible - sandalwood I smell only for a good 3h - so comes only towards the end and gives the fragrance again a pleasant elegance - the last 3-4 h I find him also the most masculine, because the sandalwood adds a certain dark spice which reminds me most of "Zware Shag" - so dark tobacco (eg from Kentucky).B. from Kentucky) reminds - before quite also from female specimens of our guild to carry (If no Oud aversion exists...)

Conclusion:
Smoky oud berry mix with sandalwood twist & beautiful amber that flashes through every now and then pleasant & gives the overall work a sensual base - which is not overdosed, quite casual to wear (with me today, for example, during a 4h team meeting ...) but its main area of application is certainly going out or clubbing - as a date fragrance? - Can you do - should you know his counterpart, however, (yet) (not at all) - perhaps rather not - because there are quite a lot of people who repels any oud component.

Overall, I like it very well & just the cranberry comes through very well with me - because I love Cranberry's - too bad that you hardly get fresh here in DE & if then at horrendous prices, because a freshly squeezed plays in another league - compared to the tetra-pack stuff you often see here on shelves.

Who likes berries (especially red!): Test!
Who likes (discreet) smoky oud: Test!

So: And now I feel like nen Cosmopolitan Sex and the City style of course with cranberry juice - I just have to leave the house tonight but again - before of course still 3-4 sprays to add. ;-)

Oud's fire..
It cracks, crackles and smokes beautifully, Oud's fire.
Thick smoke rises slowly, wild and spicy.
With sandalwood fans Oud puts smoke signals in the charred air.
"Bring berries, or the fire will go out!"
That's his message.
Under the burning wood golden brown coals glow like ambers and in between Oud throws vanilla beans into it, then it hisses so beautifully and the smoke thickens sweetly.
Oud loves its fire, the fragrant, dense smoke, but it likes berries too.
When they burst sweetly on the palate,
he always starts smacking loudly.
They bring the berries, though not many, some Oud burns on the long stem.
Then Oud's fire blazes once again and fruity aromas rise up.
Mild are now the last wisps of smoke, slightly spicy can still be guessed.
A few berries with vanilla he has ground in the sooty black hands,
he enjoys the aroma and is
highly satisfied...
A truly delightful fragrance.
Spicy smoke that through amber, vanilla and berries dry lovely finish.
With many thanks to Bloodxclat :)

What's a bomb doing in a whorehouse?
I confess, because of the name alone, this fragrance was on my watch list. Thanks to the sample set directly from the USA in pretty metal box with signature now also this representative goes to the start.
But even with this Kerosene I expected more smoke, if already over 20% of the votes are in favor. And indeed, I have directly to the prelude a pleasant smile on the face, as the powder barrel jumps into my nose after letter bomb style.
The smoke of explosion and burning wood fibers or paper, carried by a pleasant and elegant sweetness. Not ten minutes later, the smoke is gone and there remains a constantly changing play of a sweetness of vanilla and caramel and fruity, slightly sour tones of overripe red fruits, especially berries. The sandalwood provides the appropriate creaminess in the composition.
All clearly and cleanly composed.
Somehow unusual and extraordinary, somehow already in different or perhaps better had.
In my head Blackmail is similar to Metal Wave, that one is drier though. Then there is Or du Sérail, which is again less sweet, but more elegant and fruity.

And then there's confusion in my mind. Above all, I miss namely - as so often - the smokiness, which is so often perceived here.
There is still something in the small vial. Who knows whether the bottle will still move in with me, because like so some fragrances of the house I have also developed a small guilty pleasure here

New Year's Eve 2020
Fireworks ban. That pleases main fire chief Kunze. After numerous operations in the pre-Christmas period with burning Advent wreaths and various apartment fires on the holidays, since many Christmas enthusiasts swear to this day on real candles on the Christmas tree, the cozy firefighter hopes for the turn of the year finally times a little calmer than usual. Without firecrackers and rockets, it must finally work.

But far from it. It is just 22 clock, there is a first fire reported. At the Schulzes, a family with several small children. When the firefighters with loud siren in their fire truck to move, however, offers a very different picture. There is a large fire basket in the family's garden. Wood is being burned and there is a lot of smoke. The garden is filled with the smell of burning wood, but otherwise Kunze can't make out any other source of fire. But wait, what is that? From the living room, from which the young son is just coming with more logs, an intense smell of incense is coming through. The curious fire-fighting team quickly found the cause. Smoking men are burning in the living room and father Schulze is also smoking various resins, which have a pleasant sweet smell. The smell of blackberry jam is also coming from the kitchen. Mrs. Schulze and the daughter cook the delicious, fruity spread. "There's nothing else you can do," sighs the housewife. "Firecrackers and rockets are forbidden, as is lead casting, so we just cook jam. It's fun for the kids and tasty for dessert."

Kunze also gets a jar of the freshly made jam as a gift from the Schulze family. He and his people don't even notice where the time has gone. All of a sudden it is midnight. Mrs. Schulze quickly brings a little glass of fruit decco with elderberries, non-alcoholic of course. At the fire basket in the garden, from which the flames now blaze all the more vigorously, the Schulzes toast the new year with the firemen. Thus nevertheless a to some extent calm year end, is pleased main fire chief Kunze. Prosit New Year!

Blackmail by Kerosene combines the aromas of burning and smoky wood with a sweet berry scent. Added to this is a subtle, resinous amber note. In the charisma, the fragrance is wonderfully pleasantly sweet and cuddly. If you get closer to the wearer, you notice the intense smoky notes. Once again, one for the main firebrand, this Kerosene. Fans of Broken Theories, who are open to a sweeter berry note, should also have their pleasure in this fragrance.

Many thanks to Medianus1976 for the sample.
