Too Much Amber
Since amber fragrances are not necessarily my favorite style, i moderately appreciate this one. The problem for me with an amber accord is that it ends dominating a fragrance and give it a kind of a standar amber face - incensy, sweet in a muffled way, a little bit grey maybe. What makes this more interesting to me is the focus on the fresh, incense aspect at first - which seems to me to be curiously openened by a bright aldehydic aroma, which reforces the fresh aspects of incense, and it's extended by the spicy pink pepper note (a similar effect can be seen on Le Labo Baie Rose 26). Close to skin you notice a sweet cinnamon and rose aroma which seems to be related to the rouge in the fragrance name. But after some hours it ends in a standard, but balanced, amber accord. Not something that i would need a bottle i guess.

Deep, red, metallic
„Deep, red, metallic ”
"Mon nom est rouge" is a very complex, rather special composition. Perfumer Cécile Zarokian created a powerful and persistent fragrances which starts like a volcanic eruption (pepper, lemon, aldehydes, elemi, metallic notes). Characterized as a "spiced rose" by Madja Bekkali herself, I find it hard to call this a rose-scent at all. Yes, there is some rose in it, but I'm incapable of detecting the "rose with a velvety sensation", which Bekkali promised in an interview. I smell a huge amount of cardamom, cumin and cinnamon. In an impossible attempt to soften those spices, frankincense, sandalwood, tonka bean and patchouli are brought into play and contribute to the bold and assertive aura of this fragrance. "Mon nom est rouge" is very opulent with the rose in the background and the precious caradom-frankincense-cumin-combo centre-stage. It carries on the grand oriental tradition of spicy, deep and intense perfumes and it is loaded with mysterious overtones.
Piquant flashes of cumin keep coming up for hours and hours, while the other association I had when wearing this scent was indeed a "metallic taste of blood" also mentioned by Bekkali. (Those who know the fragrance "Bull's Blood" from the "Imaginary Author's" series might compare those two fragrances and detect some parallels). "Mon nom est rouge" blooms best at night when your own warm blood stirs the spicy-metallic ingredients, resulting in a disturbing kind of intoxication. This stuff might add a touch of sorcery to your fragrance-wardrobe.
