A Proper Concentration Upgrade

Finally got this! Now that my nose has matured since the last i reviewed the EDT version, i would say this is a mature, boozy, animalic, oriental, tobacco fragrance. A more intense version of the EDT, but true to it.

The EDT is sweeter in the dry down whereas this holds the line at the amber, never really going too far down the sweet path.

The EDT version divulges more facets of the note pyramid where the EDP version is just a dense, farraginous, moist, version of the EDT.

Sorry if i'm being lazy, but i do believe this has a slight note deviation from the EDT. Maybe due to having a higher concentration because, as mentioned above, it smells the same be it more denser and richer. Sometimes when upping a concentration it will create a totally different vibe than the original, so the nose/composer has to compensate by deviating from the original note pyramid and even structure to bring it more inline with it's predecessor. I'm just speculating on that was what actually happened here.

I believe, esp if you like this scent profile, the both are justified owning together. The EDT is for warmer days and daytime appropiate and the EDP is for cooler days and more evenings/going out appropiate.

All and all, I'm happy to have it in my collection.

Signature Collection - Agar Wood Hands down the BEST release I've smelled this year!
The best Dunhill has EVER released, imho. As complex and as good as the notes suggest. There is a very passable oud-y aspect from the top to bottom, as well as a very present lipstick-y iris. If I had to approximate...
