Not Carbon... Curry!...
Carbon opens with a cinnamon-like ginger tandem before quickly transitioning to its early heart. As the composition enters its early heart phase the ginger remains, joining a starring fiery red and black pepper tandem with dirty cumin-like cardamom spice, supported by dry sandalwood rising from the base. During the late dry-down the ginger and black pepper fade as remnants of the red pepper remain through the finish with the dry sandalwood base note now taking center stage. Projection is average to slightly above average and longevity average at 8 hours on skin.

Carbon is a bit of an enigma. The composition (that never resembles carbon in any way) starts off nicely with its fresh ginger but goes south quickly with its prominent use of cardamom in an implementation that reminds one of curry powder. When the cardamom couples with the fiery pepper and ginger its dirty aspects are somewhat overwhelming and less pleasant than one would expect though not wholly without merit. One really needs to wait for the late dry-down though to get Carbon's payoff, as the composition improves significantly when the dry sandalwood that peeped into the background earlier takes over as star now unchained from the dirty spice assault. The late dry-down may be a bit simplistic but it does indeed smell quite good. The bottom line is the $150 per 100ml bottle Carbon is far from the success I had hoped and expected, but it does smell good with an even better late payoff earning a "good" to "very good" 3 to 3.5 star out of 5 rating and a modest recommendation to spicy woody fans in particular.
