Fossil fuel - A dark brown symphony of horror
There are harsh scents and there are unusual harsh scents. With the first type it is fairly easy to make a comparison with another scent to help orientate oneself or to give others some guidance. With Tar I have difficulties. I got the scent as a bottling a few months ago and it Travell-TZ was leaking, as most of the others had done so far. Every time I touched the TZ, my fingers smelled so strongly afterwards that all other scents were covered by it. The perfume is oily and the colour is like motor oil Somehow this corresponds with the name and the smell. Since then, the scent has burned itself into my memory
Why he is called Tar, I don't know exactly, because tar smells a bit different. But the unusual semi-natural and dark shape has the scent in common with tar. Smoky, black with brownish highlights. Liquorice and aniseed provide the dull and rough. In addition, there is a sudden and tenacious note, which is presumably due to the addition of tonka bean, caramel and coffee. How long did Matos experiment to create this work of art, which I find so difficult to classify. I find the attention here far below average. Sure, it's no everybody's darling, but where are the people who are thinking about getting the seventh pure wood smoke scent? I dare you. It will stay in your memory
Thanks to PallasCC for giving me the opportunity to test this exceptional fragrance and another thank you for the bottling, which will certainly give me pleasure for a very long time due to the merciless shelf life and sillage.

A scent for the bold and eccentric
I've been very curious about this perfume from the very beginning as I am a big fan of birch tar. However, this is not the tar we are talking about here. Matos' Tar is certainly in the league of its own. As the perfumer explains, it is supposed to be the smell of tar in his imaginary world, thus, I will try to capture my own experience that was unleashed by the smell of this magnificent creation.

This is a dark fragrance with a piercing sweetness and spiciness that comes from licorice, star anise, and oregano. While this combination might deter some of the perfume lovers here, it is well worth trying—in my subjective opinion. The scent evokes an image of a campfire in the woods. But instead of burnt marshmallows, you smell burnt licorice, sweetened by caramel. You dip each piece of this black solid substance into a cup of rum and feed it to the hungry tongues of burning flames. The process is captivating; the black solid is transformed into a gooey, latex-like liquid that is slowly dripping into the flames. This hypnotic sweet and spicey smell is joined by animalic notes and deepened by the earthy patchouli and wafts of tobacco. The woody notes provide depth to the scent without taking the center stage, with the burning licorice remaining the protagonist. Overall, the scent is warm, addictive, smoky and edgy with a great balance of sweetness and spice.

This is not a scent that should be judged from the first sniff. Here the patience pays off in the long run. It is bold and provocative—perhaps even addictive and enticing! The performance is outstanding—some ten hours on my skin. The projection starts strong and remains strong during the first two to three hours. Another very interesting, edgy, unexpected offering.

Disclosure: My Tar perfume was purchased from Matos' website.

After a soapy, metallic spicy-sweet opening, this rather boozy, smoky-spicy Gourmand, settles to a warm and sweet earthy-woody base. Unique!
