Like a cup of remarkably flavorful Honey Orchid tea!
Whether I love SOLO Absoluto or not, I will try to give you my honest and detailed thoughts. Well, this is another spectacular fragrance from Loewe, which is not an intense version of the traditional one. Rather, it is very different, absolutely. In my opinion, the main differences are the absence of the guava note, which is the most important note in the original SOLO and the reason of its success, and the presence of the orchid, which makes SOLO Absolute so soothing.

It is meant to be a sweet-oriental, woody, spicy, and a bit powdery fragrance. Among the notes of lavender, neroli, orchid, sandalwood, frankincense, bergamot, tangerine, wormwood, basil, tonka bean, amber and musk, there are a handful that I can clearly detect as time goes by. More intense and sweet than solo original, after the initial stage, it reminds me of the traditional SOLO, but the development is pretty different with more floral notes, a little bit darker and has a wonderful orchid note, very well applied in the heart of the fragrance, but perceivable from the very beginning on my skin.

I have to tell you that the first minutes after spraying gives me the most wonderful smell I have ever encountered with a perfume... Yes, it's attractive! Then, there is a wonderfully blending of some unusual and bizarre ingredients such as the sweetness of the orchid combined with the resinous woodsy and delicious smoky incense scent that makes this fragrance so soothing and relaxing, like a cup of remarkably flavorful Honey Orchid tea (Mi Lan Xiang), descended from a long line of Phoenix Shui Xian tea trees all bearing the unique honeyed aroma and flavor. In addition to the orchid, both frankincense and tonka bean are present from the opening to the end, though they are neither annoying nor cloying, just the right blend.

Albeit musk, sandal, and other woodsy notes reveal after quite a few hours, I believe that LOEWE uses a secret formula for making his scents. The notes in the fragrance do not come in the usual order, rather they reappear from time to time, which is uncommon and weird, but appealing.

I recommend SOLO Absoluto for cooler temperature like fall and winter, yet early spring too. On my skin, longevity and sillage are above the average, an outstanding fragrance. Ultimately, the golden juice bottled into a transparent glass with golden metal parts deserve a 9/10... Absolutely!!!

Disappointing, not because it's bad...
But because it's (almost) Great.

A striking Tangerine-Orchid-Incense, oriental.

Rare is the orchid in men's "designer" class fragrances. This particular rarity is simultaneously Musky (in it's orchid), Arid (in it's incense), and Muted (in it's tangerine rind) : As opulent as it's concept may imply, "SOLO Absoluto" possesses a tonal balance that boasts very little contrast. Resulting in a lack of dynamism. Without any acidic brightness pass the opening, it very quickly became ashy, life-less, and claustrophobic. Like a beautiful gilded and bejeweled sarcophagus. Grand, but somber. Warm... alas, aloof.

This is very much a Niche type work of... "art": Exquisite to admire on a blotter, but not necessarily as wearable, IMO. (Save for maybe with a poker face, for an upper-hand in business negotiations, LOL). Stunning bottle design and execution, to boot. Rather a disappointment.

*Sighhhhh...*

Solo Loewe Orchidee
This is a good release from Loewe.

Lots of tonka with a small amount of incense and musky orchid note.

Thats suitable for all year.

Medium projection, sillage and lasting power.

Definetely a must try.
