Terrible Teddy - Portraits Collection
You can be forgiven if the plotlines of the Penhaligon's Portraits series have become a bit too convoluted to follow- to be honest, we're not quite sure we know what's going on at this point. Luckily, all that matters (aside from those jaw-dropping caps) is the scent, and Terrible Teddy is a robust, masculine, and surprisingly nuanced leather and incense gem. While the imposing golden rhinoceros certainly speaks to Teddy's impressive lasting power, there's refinement and subtlety at play here- the opening bursts with piquant spice, the leather is luxurious and supple, the incense delicately smoky with a perfectly metered dollop of dark woodsiness in the drydown, leavened with the warm airiness of ambroxan. With a secret weapon like this, it's no wonder Terrible Teddy has managed to ensnare so many unsuspecting hearts.

Just a small addition
This funny and delightfully packaged fragrance of the British manufacturer has already been described here by many in detail. Some use the expression "sweet fir". Yes, I can agree with that, absolutely. But as a resident of the alpine foothills, I would like to suggest a more precise term: ZIRBE!!! Exactly THAT conifer is in play there for me. Develops a few minutes after spraying.
The Zirbe enjoys high reputation in the folklore - thus its smell is to guarantee among other things particularly restful sleep, which led to the fact that there is everything from the Zirben Duftöl for the Kapillarstäbchen over Zirbenholzschartenpolster up to the bedroom built completely from Zirbe in the alpine periphery. And one knows also a kultigen liquor, which is put on with - not completely simply to procuring - not yet completely ripe Zirbenzapfen. This is not only produced industrially, but is also the subject of fiercely contested competitions by amateur producers. And who knows, maybe you could score a few extra points in such a competition if you put on the Terrible Teddy beforehand?

Pine
Simple but good!
Rather woody-smoky-resinous than leathery.
The scent reminds me of unprocessed pine that slowly unfolds in the sun, its dry, sweet-resinous aromas.
With me, the fragrance lasts a long time and I just feel good when I wear it. :)

Sweet fir?
If there are sweet smelling firs, then maybe they smell like our teddy here.

Reminds me at times of "electric wood" by room 1015.

I was still sceptical when I smelled the test strip. But now so on the skin.... damn!... this is really tasty.

Would even wear it at home, and just feel comfortable in the cloud. (which, by the way, I still perceive very well on myself long after spraying on)
