Very sweet without being edible
Very sweet without being edible. You can guess the spices, but it looks like it's hidden under syrup or resin or poured over it. I don't see any cinnamon. It reminds me of sweet pipe tobacco; sometimes it seems so strangely wet, although you expect something dry and smoky. And that's how I feel with The Calling, as if wood had become wet and a box of cigars was standing next to it. It's well done and doesn't kill you and doesn't seem synthetic, but I still don't smell the exorbitant price. But I think I've smelled that way with others before. And this sweet rum-tobacco theme is too clichéd for me, too much "how to do it". Wood, tobacco and rum is what many people associate with a dignified Gentlemans Club, plus some sweet caramel to make it pleasing and there you go, the mainstreamer, pretending to be a niche, with a few spices thrown in. Hm, no. The best thing about the fragrance, I think, is the bottle.

Absolute
The start from a beautiful old rum, with discreet sweetness, which actually contains the green, almost fig-like fragrance of an immature mango, is really something special. But very quickly a caramel sweetness of cinnamon, tobacco and vanilla "pushes" into the spotlight.

And exactly at this point all fans and lovers of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla are addressed. At this point, with a little more caramel, the fragrance develops into an extrait version, a Tobacco-Vanilla-Absolu. I really appreciate Tobacco Vanilla, one of the Tom Ford All-Stars. But find too seldom the opportunity to wear this classic, because for me it simply belongs in the winter and the ice-cold air at the Christmas market or when trudging through freshly fallen snow.

This Phuong Dang has such a massive projection that when first and only sprayed on for this commentary, colleagues from neighboring offices already noticed the scent. Without ever leaving the office. Radius 15 meters! In this respect, a trained finger on the trigger is recommended for this power gourmand. A very conscious dosage. Because the density of this fragrance is immense. Beautiful. But also a decision for the next 10-12 hours on the skin. A decision for days, when spraying on clothes. I have rarely experienced fragrances with so much performance per sprayer.

As already mentioned, I can highly recommend this fragrance for discreet use in the office or for outdoor activities. He is a real gourmand in the style of his close relative Tobacco Vanilla. Only this one here is the beautiful, but almost "weapon-capable" extrait - with the certain twist.

Sweet, spicy, (very atypical) Gourmand
The Calling is for me the best stand today, because most original Phuong Dang.
First of all: I don't like typical gourmands. TF Noir Extreme and Initios Side Effect have become the property of my partner.

But what could I smell here? Sweetness (would be a deterrent for me alone), but by no means headache sweetness, sage, cinnamon and pepper make sure of that. After two hours a masculine, round, warm, challenging and calming aura develops. I've never smelled anything like it before.
It is comparable to the Side Effect, but it is too opulent and pompous for me as a man, which is completely missing here.

About the Sillage: already the last partial scourer from my unfortunately much too fast empty sample seduced my partner to comment: your cloud is so insanely intoxicating today...

The bottle is ordered, thank you Mauriced for the sample. My best discovery so far 2018.
