The prelude is spicy fresh and green.
Also surprising, how interesting and already unconventional the prelude seems, since the listing of the top note(s) seems to me to be unexciting at first. However, the prelude in its spicy freshness is in some way (clever?) made in such a way that one somehow already suspects that one or the other surprise will follow.
In the very early top note and in the early heart note, DesirToxic has some similarities to Fusion sacrée obscur, which I find quite terrible, by the way. That this is different with DesirToxic is, for my subjective feeling, simply due to the fact that the aforementioned Fusion sacrée obscur smells like this nuance as a whole fragrance or as a whole composition of fragrances, which, however, in the prelude is surrounded by spice and bitter fruit - or better: is defused.
Still we are in the range spicy-sweet and green.

This spicy freshness then actually gradually diminishes and the remaining spiciness is soaked with bitter cool Johanisberry, sweet hemp and bittersweet creamy Tonka bean. Hemp does not go here in the direction of Black Afgano or the cannabis of Il Profvmo. It's herbaceous, but it's just right for me, subliminal.
The currant is further ahead in the fragrance and I was more taken with it. Even described as bitterly cool, the biggest surprise for me was how (meant in perfume language or the general meaning of perfume) little "fruity" the fruitiness of a fruit can smell. And real. To boost the head cinema, imagine smelling a fresh currant that was shock-frozen at that very moment and is just bursting into small individual stones... Likewise, I have never pushed the smell of currants (generally fruit) in the direction of (mysterious-)erotic. Whether it is the currant on its own or the berry in combination with the nuances that surround it, at that time the scent is much darker, bittersweet and quite erotic.
Does it almost evoke the feeling in the late heart and emerging base note that one is spraying it on and a real everyone can only find one attractive and/or alluring with it? Of course it is absolute bullshit but still a feeling of sublimity. At this point one must actually say, hat off, that a fragrance can do something like this (for a short time)!
And it really doesn't smell so unbelievably unique that one would experience the olfactory enlightenment now... But interesting, also a bit weird and apparently quite skilfully composed...
The cool currant gets a bit sweeter, vanilla chocolaty support from benzoin and the fragrance itself becomes more balsamic and deeper. The underlying cannabis resin and spices have heated up noticeably and enclose the currant splinters in dark drops. The fragrance changes at that time clearly in the direction of balsamic, resinous, sweetish and the freshness is completely repressed. But he stays green.
Dark green, moist and slightly musty and mossy, the transformation is actually almost complete. Also friends of Animalik could find him at the latest starting from the time at least interesting. However, this is animalic in the fabric softener. Something dirty is wafting lightly, barely perceptible.

In the foreground the dark chocolaty patchouli has already joined the line and gives the fragrance something earthy. The spicy basic tone now also looks woody.
So he stays the rest of the time:
Balsamic, spicy, woody, bittersweet.
Violet and dark green interfere with each other.
Conclusion on the fragrance:
Has definitely not reinvented the fragrance wheel, but shines through the somewhat weird composition and the sexy Asstrahlung.
To mention this: the durability is rather disappointing, if you look at the price. Possibly slightly better than with the Liquides Imaginaires.
