If you’re familiar with Dubrana’s work, the palette here is quite the same of many others among his masculine offers (notably Tabac and Don Corleone), here with a bolder animalic-musky twist: civet (rich, dirty, sweaty), patchouli, oak moss and a light floral breeze which together with the earthy-indolic base, kind of reminded me of Rabanne’s Ténére and Bogart’s Furyo at first. The rose petals floating over a pile of steamy animalic stuff is somehow the same here as regards of the abovementioned fragrances, well supported by sandalwood and its peculiar sweet-syrupy woodiness. A few notes, all vibrant, sharp and clear, as per Dubrana’s style. Another great example of dark, natural, intense masculinity in a bottle (I know it’s outdated to classify scents by gender, but sometimes it works – surely it does for this brand). The smell here is earthy, woody, sweaty and from times to times even moldy-indolic thanks to civet; easy to think of many old-school masculine chypres. Still it’s all more natural here, so in a way, smelling more rich, more “alive”, more effortless, less “formal” and less tamed down (and less synthetic). For some reasons not a “wow” entirely, perhaps for a sort of boring linearity, but overall surely a fascinating and solid scent.
