Beautiful mandarin from the end of the world
This recently discontinued and in the trade (also online) sold out fragrance is the most beautiful and natural Mandarin fragrance that has come under my nose so far. Before he, already quite unknown, disappears completely in the sinking, I wanted to dedicate a Kommi to him therefore still another.

It is worth a more detailed mention, because in my opinion it has an even more natural looking mandarin than e.g. Hermes "Eau de Mandarine Ambree" (warm, ambered mandarin), Altaias "Yu Son" (fresh mandarin with a green tea flap), Gaglewskis "L'Amiral" (soft, maritime mandarin) or Guerlains "Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic" (fresh, green mandarin with a light floral flap).

Owari, by the way, is the Japanese word for "end." (Fits in this context somehow also :)) The Japanese meaning is value-free, i.e. neither positive nor negative. Owari is also a Japanese province from which this special citrus fruit variety originates. The seed-free mandarin fruit is known under the name "Satsuma" or "Satsuma Owari".

Fragrance:
Owari starts with a very fresh, incredibly natural and full-bodied tangerine note with tangy, green citrus sprinklers. It is a mixture of juicy orange meat and the slightly sweeter and more sweet tangerine, as well as a discreetly in the background virile, bitter grapefruit and soft bergamot note.

In the course the very authentic green-sweet mandarin is equally supported by the Neroli and thus gets this typical soft and radiant orange blossom note (sweet-orange-floral). The depth and substance of the fragrance are then enhanced by a wonderfully balanced sandalwood-like note (amyris wood in combination with musk), which blends seamlessly into the round and increasingly softer character of the fragrance. A slightly counteracting dry accent of amber and cedar wood prevents it from drifting into too shallow waters. I do not know the bitter-eucalyptus-like smell of cubeb pepper (in dried form) (the undried berries are probably slightly sweet). But due to his description he would well insert the minimal green citric note of the fragrance.

All three main ingredients (tangerine, orange blossom, sandalwood) are perfectly balanced and interwoven in the same intensity. This combination always puts me in a balanced, optimistic mood. It is a simply knitted, but beautifully balanced, high-quality feel-good fragrance.

Availability:
Due to the quality of its ingredients, the actually casual unisex scent is also conceivable for more formal occasions. Its fresh, full-bodied fruitiness certainly predestines it for the warm season, but the creamy-woody base conveys so much warmth that it can also be used in the transitional seasons - as perhaps even more suitable - and even in the cold season without any problems.

Durability and Sillage:
Here I see the only flaw in the fragrance. After 1-2 hours it is only a pure skin scent. It lasts up to four, five hours so perceptibly on the skin. The Sillage is also quite manageable.

Additional information about the brand:
Odin New York is a so-called lifestyle brand that distributes not only its own products, which primarily include clothing and accessories, but also other brands. It was founded in 2004 and since 2009 it has launched its own fragrance collection, divided into a Black Line (11 unisex fragrances) and a White Line (3 unisex fragrances). Owari is one of the first three fragrances to be released.

Result:
With this fragrance, Odin New York has succeeded in creating a high-quality, very natural Mandarin fragrance, which is supported by orange blossom and a sandalwood-like lining. For all orange and tangerine lovers it is from my point of view an absolute test recommendation, despite the very manageable durability.

Thank you very much to:

The End?
So sad.Stays only for 30 minutes on my Skin.Hope my review can help.I can tell I have tried a lot of parfum in my young life. Also I worked in a sensory lab for a short time and my nose is mostly very sensitive to some smells and odors. My hobby... compare colognes ;)

I bought it in Germany for 120€ (to expensive!) after comparing it to Atelier Cologne.Those two are damn close but i like the former much more because it is more glamourus.
Try it yourself!Owari is just fresher.Like a sliced mandarin.It itches in my nose every time i try it. It is so damn fresh! Best for hot days.
This could have been my favorite Cologne but no one will notice it after 30 minutes. Just an expensive body mist.Sigh...

The End
Owari means the end of something in Japanese, if I remember well. Truly fitting name for this scent, abstracted from the Owari tangerine as note.
It emits the ennobling aura of meditation about the annihilation, in a very light, fragile, almost sigh-like breath. The nearest similarity offer itself with peach blossom.
But the fragrance is so weak that even with convulsive efforts and my nose closely on my skin can not be detected after an hour. I would tell, that 02 OWARI identify oneself totally with its own name, so I would like to enjoy this tender scent vainly as it is so weak.
