The scratch brush
Reminds me: Fesiaform (disinfectant in the GDR (probably 100% formaldehyde)), caramel, roasted almonds, smoke from burning fresh grass (so lawn, not the expensive from the dealer of your trust), whiskey (lagavulin)

Interesting: the warmer it is at the applied place (e.g. elbow), the sooner I notice the warm, soft caramel notes (also vanilla), in the hair (in my case beard) or on the T-shirt the smoky notes dominate very much and of caramel no trace

Signals: extravagance, self-confidence, egoism (you don't have to care about the people around you if you're wearing it), defensive willingness to engage in conflict without aggressiveness - he sits in an armchair smoking a cigar while his buddy gets his ass kicked, he knows he could intervene and help, but as long as he doesn't have to, he stays in his seat.

Durability: So my skin eats this scent. On the T-shirt he can still be smelled after 2 weeks in the laundry basket (but you rarely stick your head in it). On (my) body it can only be guessed after 2-3 hours and it becomes very fast, very close to the body.

Who do you have to be for this fragrance?: Tamer, Captain, Dictator

Conclusion: An exciting, rather scratchy and certainly not a comfortable fragrance.

Smoky vetiver
Despite its name which may sound “dark” and threatening, Fumidus is actually nothing more than a really mild and mannered salty-smoky vetiver scent. It belongs to the “raw & earthy vetivers” family together with Etro Vetiver and Althunis by Sigilli, still smelling somehow duller than both – or better say, with a slight synthetic-cheap rubber aftertaste that ruins a bit the “wild magic” for me. And overall less “feral & wild” than it may seem at first. Nonetheless it’s a sure must for all raw vetiver fans; it’s salty, smoky, obviously woody with a “burnt” shade, quite dry and also slightly grassy. The smokiness here comes both from vetiver and from something which I guess may be a leather accord (guess it’s the birch note though). Nice, long-lasting and fascinating, but there’s way better for this genre – and the price doesn’t help.

6,5-7/10
