The Scent of Hmmmmmm
Miguel Matos is perhaps known as one of the editors of Fragrantica. But Miguel is also a creative nose and releases, besides various fragrance collaborations, fragrances under his own name.

Even as a perfume addict one likes to ignore how long it takes to create a new fragrance. It consists of more setbacks than success. The yardstick, however, is, above all, the perfumer's demand for the fragrance to be created. Valuable ingredients and already functioning components of creations are usually thrown into the garbage. Miguel now collected these failures. And just as he was about to dispose of the "primeval soup" he found the scent to be extraordinarily pleasant. But since so many approaches from different scent experiments were already mixed here, even he could not reconstruct what exactly is contained in the scent now.

He called it "Scent of Fail" and sold it at a very moderate price as a limited release of 20 bottles.

And yes, the scent has something. First with its strongly flowery bouquet reminiscent of fragrances, like Kinnari of Prin Lomros, then noticeably a Chypré ensemble completely turns up and he it sounds the ancestral line classically Chypré - with beautiful angular oak moss and the opposite pole in soft flowers
Increasingly, starting at about the 6th hour, a noticeable musk note breaks free and into the light, which gradually stages a third family of scents until the drydown, the animalic scents.

Probably wouldn't have been possible to construct this scent that way. And "The Scent of Fail" cannot be reproduced either, since the mixing ratios are not even known to Miguel.

An ingenious concept that now also makes me want to test the actually "planned" fragrances.

They must be really good, if "failure" at Miguel Matos already blows me away. :)
