Only for incense lovers
This perfume smells overall like the ecclesiastical incence. The one that priests Burn in catholic and ortodoxe ceremonies. When i wesr It i feel like being int the middle of the semana santa (oster) un Sevilla. A mix between the incesnse of the processions, cotton Candy and herbal mixture. This is just the smell of the streets in many andalusian cities during this time. The true is that i am not religiosos and i am from the north of Spain so i dont keep so many remembers related to this smell (we dont celebraré the oster un Galicia with the same passion as Andalucia does), however i LOVE this smell and i find It very original and weareable. It is true that not everybody likes It and that this is not the best option if you want to collect compliments about your smeel. Most oeople así yo me... What are you wearing? You smells weird... Or... You smell like a church, what have you been doing? But i LOVE smelling like that. The fragance opens with a creamy and sweet frankincense because if the cinnamon, tonka Bean and resinous mixture and step by step changes into a greener and more spicy smell. This perfume lasts forever. On skin It lasts the whole day (more than 10 hours) but on clothes It lasts days and even months. I wore It one month ago and i can still feel the incense vibe on the jscket i wore that time. Good opción for daily use.

I want to start and I'm so surprised that I really don't have the words! Sometimes life (or the wonderful people in it) leads us to unusual places that were previously reserved for us, but which - how could it be any different - can still be remembered by their smell despite a short stay, carve themselves into their own wood, become part of one, in connection with the memory of this person. I was fourteen or fifteen, and an old building door opened! She took me to the violin maker (as a child I thought of a farm with loud violins in the stable), on the way we listened to the radio in a dark green Ford Fiesta and she let me guess the composers. All this time, immersing yourself in the scent of wood, colophony dust against the light, wood coming to life. She just wanted to do a little something there. But this smell of resin, any tincture, which should stink, but enchanted me with all its amber tones. So is this perfume. It smells as if I was breathing warmly on the wood of my cello or as if the sun was filling its own odour in the room. At that time it was a violin maker, but after a few minutes this perfume develops into a gentle, amber-like perfume, the incense made me almost devout, no, it must be my own violin maker, too round, too feminine (although quite wearable for a man!). A wonderful composition, how fitting that I am unpacking my cello again just these days and its gentle resinous smell rises to my nose again, my dear good old and faithful friend. This amber scent makes me dream, so much happens so unbelievably, suddenly and unexpectedly. My God, I'm so glad there is such a thing

Dreams of Ossian
After trying all the samples of the Oriza L. Legrand sample pack I ordered, I can definitely say that this and Horizon are my favorite offerings from this house, although all compositions have a certain "je ne sais quoi" attractiveness. They all share a complex, and out of this world or at least out of this current age we live in, quality. And you can almost see and smell the story they have for each of their fragrances. I recommend to at least try the sample pack. They ship quickly, pack well and it's well worth the € 15,- or € 16,-.

Back to Rêve d'Ossian. It starts off with a nice combo of incense and aldehydes, but it's never harsh or pungent anywhere. After the first blast it settles down into a nice powdery, sweetish and balmy mixture of pine, elemi, woods, opoponax and tonka.

Rêve d'Ossian brings you into the elusive deep forest where maybe even fairies hide behind the trees. If the forest was a temple or a church, then this would be its fragrance.

A Welcome Spicy, Woody , Resinous Blast From The Past...
Reve d'Ossian opens with a gentle touch of aldehydes before a gingery incense-like opoponax resin and elemi-derived pine tandem takes over. In the early heart the incense-like opoponax resin remains, now supported with cinnamon spice and slightly sweet natural smelling woods with a prominent tonka bean driven sweet powdery sheen covering all. During the late dry-down the tonka bean driven powder fades though never completely dissipates as slightly sweet amber, relatively clean musk and fine sandalwood from the base emerge and control, with the just slightly sweet sandalwood primarily "the last man standing" as the composition slowly fades out with traces of the supporting musk still barely detectable. Projection is very good and longevity is excellent to outstanding at 12-14 hours on skin.

Reve d'Ossian has an amazing list of notes, but one of the most impressive early-on is its deft use of aldehydes up top. Usually the use of aldehydes in a composition is an arresting point for this reviewer, but they go down quite easy with this one, meshing quite well with the opoponax resin that resembles radiant church incense. The tonka bean gets just a tad problematic in the heart as it brings a pretty decent amount of sweet powder along for the ride, but thankfully while it goes right to the boundary of acceptability; it never crosses the line into unwanted territory. The sandalwood and amber base is quite lovely and finishes off the composition on a high note. The bottom line is the 120 euro per 100ml bottle Reve d'Ossian is far from perfect, but it gets things mostly right (especially the top and base accords), earning a well-deserved "very good" rating of 3.5 stars out of 5.
