Rustic ancient leathery experience
This is definitely, as you could imagine, an eccentric perfume. I will classify it as a vetiver - leather. Of course at first this is a blast of an ancient and strong leather with woods mixed with a realistic and really original note of clay, that is the first time I smelled in a fragrance and can assure that note is incredible. I am from Spain and this remembers me a lot of places that I visited in my life, specially rustic houses or something ancient and the nature and typical towns, like Salamanca, sure. This could be the smell of "Máximo" in gladiator film; you can smell the leather, the earth, the stones of Coliseum. At the beginning is an amazing leathery experience that makes you think you can wear as a new, original and classy leather, but in the drydown a too much acid vetiver note takes importance and dominates the whole leathery chord. This changes my perception of the fragrance. This fragrance could have been an incredible dark leather with a rustic classy vibe, but the drydown has a totally different intention taking the way of a dirty greenish acid vetiver that personally I don´t like. Interesting fragrance anyway, and perfectly executed with a good balance and no edges. Need to mention of course the shy and far floral notes in the background that creates a echo of sweetness, but always an echo in the background, you never feel any floral domination.
