Orbital Synthetics Brought Down To Earth By Poor Performance...
Orb_ital opens with a fresh, almost ozonic accord with moderately high pitched violet floral support before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its heart the perfume morphs into a soft, warm woody incense affair with hints of frankincense, musk and sandalwood most prominent and just a hint of subtle warm chili pepper support. Things remain highly linear through the relatively short-lived late dry-down, as the warm, soft woods dominate through the finish. Projection is average, but longevity is well below average at around 4 hours on skin.

Orb_ital poses quite the quandary for this writer. The perfume really treads new grounds with its intentional synthetic signature called "Orbitone." In truth, I have no idea what Orbitone is, but it seems to present as woody, musky ozonic, and quite frankly very pleasant smelling. Add in some deftly integrated high pitched violet and some woody incense and you have the makings of a winner... Then, alas, things start to fall apart quickly. One of the expected benefits of using large amounts of synthetics in perfumery is to enhance performance, but Orb_ital really drops the ball in this camp. The perfume's longevity in particular is highly disappointing, and really doesn't allow it to hang around on skin long enough to develop much of any kind of late dry-down. So what starts off as innovative, showing great promise ends up in a bit of a let-down despite the perfume's successful fragrance profile on the whole. What a damn shame. The bottom line is the $165 per 100ml EdP bottle Orb_ital has a lot to recommend it, but its intentional liberal use of synthetics falls flat in the performance and development departments, yielding a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5 rating but only a hesitant recommendation due to its flagging performance.

Sweet dry wood surrounded by clean musk, so it goes towards cotton. Pepper adds warmth. Synthetics suitable for everyday use.
