Between Shisha and Hashish
Really hippie is this nostalgic scent in the style of the 1960s, and hippies seem to have been the inspiration. They have occupied a public park, and fumes of whatever you can smoke waft over the scenery.

Blue Nehru is a spicy-woody fragrance. The spice is kind of aniseed-y and should remind you of cannabis. The start is a bit citric, but the strong spice repels me. It is icky and disgusting, and again, we have to ask where the perfumer wants to lead us.

Fortunately, the drydown comes quick. The strong spice steps back, and Blue Nehru plays out its woody basic character. This is not too dry, rather sweetish and musty. You get impressions of furniture in old castles or antiques shops, but for to stick with the hippie image – it could also be some bulky waste from the sixties, heavily impregnated with strange fumes.

I do not think Blue Nehru is overly complex – and it is not fit to hold an opium candle to the ingenious Hemp & Leather. Most of all, I do not like this sweetish, spicy and woody accord – but if I try to refrain from my own taste, then Blue Nehru will surely have some success among perfume lovers who are interested in hippie culture. Despite its spiciness, Blue Nehru is a warm fragrance, rather suitable for winter, not for summer wear.

Rob Denton struck the right note for this topic, but he also shows that he is an uncompromising niche perfumer. In this case, it puts me off – I do not want this fragrance around me.
