Archaic Rites
Let's orchestrate the opening fireworks to celebrate the holistic man with Stravinsky's "Le sacre du printemps" (The Sacrifice of Spring). Forget the lyrical foreplay. Use it right away with the rhythmically hammering, wildly aggressive "Augures printaniers", the harbingers of spring:

Animal citrus leather hits the skin with bitter flower seasoning.

Stravinsky spoke about his spring sacrifice of the "all-encompassing panic awakening of universal power". They are not sweet, but martially hammered "harbingers" for the sacrifice of the virgin.

Quorum was created by a certain Sebastian Gomez, who is represented on parfumo.de with two perfumes and otherwise untraceable. His two creations date back to the 80s of the last century. Let us assume that this man of the past was of Spanish origin and make the arch from the wild Russian to the proud Spaniard. For me, this quorum does indeed have something of the proud Spaniard's cliché, without him - is it due to Artemisia and cumin? - i can't think this scent.

Aristotle classified man as zóon politikón or Latinized homo politicus. Man as a social, political being disciplines his animal aspects in the polis community, democracy emerges, archaic rites are repressed. From such an ancient image of man emerges the modern man, whose civilization is regulated by democratic procedures, such as the "quorum". Its purpose is to prevent the formation of an unrepresentative majority by a number of votes cast. A desired change in the status quo is only implemented if the required quorum has been reached.

To title a fragrance so objectively that it is archaically trumpeting against postmodernism may seem strange. In the early 80s a masculine fragrance was a matter of course, so a dramatic headline did not occur to anyone. Since then many philosophical-anthropological self-evidences have been questioned, overturned and are already history. I would like to imagine Sebastian Gomez and the eponym of the Quorum lodged a last reactionary objection for the archaic man. As we know today, the necessary quorum has not been achieved. One proclaimed the homo sociologicus, the sociological being. No sacrifice is made, the virgin lives, the bull was not impaled, but tamed and soaped.

Let's follow Stravinsky's spring offerings one last time with the "Rondes printanières" in the heart note and base. Dark, even gloomy and worn they walk along. It's a male dance. May the virgins dance in ballet, the man does not dance. With Rilke the picture can be rounded off: It's "a dance of power around a center, in which, stunned, there is a great will." Rilke, too, knew that the fate of homo inermis was for the civilized being. The defenceless human, a deficient being, defenceless, abandoned by instinct.

The great will of the holistic man is largely history, which Gomez' Quorum looks at us from wild eyes. Still animalistic, though cultivated, tamed, but not tamed. The base of the Quorum is warm with amber, leather, moss and tobacco and solemn with a hint of incense.

You can buy all kinds of quargles... Bunch of money for "well." Quorum is very, very cheap! And very, very the club! Mike Hammer and Peter Strohm! Leather jacket and Barbour jacket with holes! Nose break instead of "talk about it". Quorum always goes. Quorum will clear the ship. Quorum isn't for cuddling. Quorum is not for Bubis! There is no literary commentary at Quorum! Quorum is the true Yatagan and the godfather of masculine fragrances!
With Quorum we don't drive a SUV with rear view camera!
With Quorum, we don't go to the psychotherapist!
With Quorum there are no compliments!
You don't drink cocktails with Quorum!
With Quorum you shit on the dress code!
With Quorum you occupy houses and conquer the princess!
With Quorum we're going to the brig! ????
Quorum du Keule! You hammer! You relic! You tough bastard!

Underrated, but so good!
Strong fragrance, woody, green, tobacco, leathery, spicy, soapy in the draydown. Same vibe of Anataeus from Channel but without the animalic note. Masculine fragrance for guys over 30's. Only to use in cold weather. Difficult fragrance in the opening: stong pine and oakmoss, but after 30 minutes you will love it, and the draydown is the best part. Great longevity and projection. One or two sprays is enough, more than can be dangerous for your reputation. Excellent relation price/quality.

Not quorate
Any legal body must have enough members present before it can conduct its business; this what's known as a quorum.

The bottle I have is so underpowered that a dozen sprays at the start of a board meeting would barely last till the second item on the agenda.

There were evidently so few odorants present on the 10th of January 2012 when the constituents of this juice were assembled it could not have been quorate.

Danger! Olfactory Bomb Ahead
...but in a good way. Quorum is powerful, dry, and smells like nothing else on the market from its time, nor like anything else today. It truly is a love or hate fragrance.

Me, I love it, it is unabashedly strong, crass, and masculine. The cumin in the top adds a sweaty and dirty note to this fragrance. The tobacco and the frankincense add a smoky note to the leather.

My impression of Quorum is that it smells like the classic bad boy with the leather jacket, and cigarette hanging from his mouth. He may be cleaned up but he's still aggressive and a little dirty. I think of Quorum that way; bad boy without the questionable hygiene and stale ashtray smell.

Longevity is quite good. This stuff goes 12+ hours on my skin. Very strongly for the first 6. Go easy on the sprayer with this one. It is enough to clear a room if oversprayed. One shot on the chest after a shower is usually plenty.
