A little bit of everything...
This is my first time trying a fragrance from Greece. Korres is an "aromatherapy" company which specialises in "natural" and "chemical free" fragrances (great for vegans, vegetarians... and people with allergies and sensitivity to fragrance). This is their "unisex" creation, centred around Jasmine, Pepper and Guaiac wood.

So what does it smell like? Well, it's a complex one. I straight away get anise and citrus, but this fades away quickly. What I really get is what I can describe as a sweet, woody vibe throughout. The main combination is white chocolate and sandalwood, and they complement each other beautifully. The reason is because pure sandalwood has a very "creamy" aspect to it, and when combined with the chocolate gives it a very smooth, gourmand aspect. The guaiac wood is not a note that I get here very much, but the fragrance does have a slightly dry, woody aspect, so this may be the black pepper... and yes, I do get the jasmine, it is sitting around the edges of this fragrance, but always there, giving it a fresh lift-up. Passion fruit, combined with the pepper gives it a citric, but very faint acidic-fruity smell, and the peach completes the fragrant, fruity undertone. Overall it works great though. It's good stuff.

I think this is one that works best in the autumnal season, and also in the springtime. I have no problem with longevity here, this lasts over 6 hours on my skin. I think for the price and complexity of this fragrance you cannot really go wrong. It smells different to a lot of other stuff out there. Certainly unisex but in my opinion leaning slightly more feminine. Either way, a fantastic combination. Well done Greece! A good creation from a unique house.

Pretty simple. Simply pretty.
When I first sampled PJGWP an image flooded my mind - a large crystal glass of ruby-red wine spilling over grapes & purple fruits on a silver salver atop a rich dark wooden table before the juice dripped & tumbled over a burgundy velvet cushion with gold silk piping.

In terms of notes it is hard to separate the threads from which this esquisite cloth has been woven. A rich, mellow red-fruit opener studded with pepper somehow remains mid-weight, fluid & free from the fashionable "froootiness" that sickens other scents.

There is a mellow muskiness that makes itself known right from the start - yet it, too, is a strange beast. This musk is not clean, soapy or animalic. It is like a cloud or a sigh in a forest.

Whirling & swirling around the soft fruits are wafts of sweet cherry pipe tobacco, oh-so-smooth woods with that resinous spicey kick of guaiac & a vanilla hug. It ages gracefully leaving you with whispers of itself many hours after your first encounter.

Although I find it a very womanly perfume there is a male element that makes me think of old B&W pictures of gals dressed as guys in top hat & tails....quirky, unusual yet very alluring.

It is a languid look from under heavily fringed lashes. It is a reclusive eccentric artist. It is the pulse of blood under a pale ivory wrist. It is the music of a silent forest. It is the dilation of a pupil in eyes of avarice. It is simply beautiful.

Surreal, harmonious and so very wearable.
