summoning the ghost of Gaia
I was lucky enough to receive a sample of this creation recently.As I wasn't aware of its existence, I intentionally didn't do any research for it, to refrain myself from having any preconceptions prior to sampling it.
Upon application , I experienced a deja-vu notion of sowing/harvesting of the land.
A feeling of running full of sweat on a plantation's damp soil, plant juices(slight chlorophyll aroma), smelling a bunch of plucked field wild flowers with a prominent freshly cut chamomiles (not the dried one in tea bags) and yes pollen filling the air. It is a quite heavy statement fragrance with an unusual spin that will turn heads...either towards or away from the wearer. I am, personally, very very pleased with this perfume. Being quite dense, yet not suffocating, at various times there was aroma-molecule that I couldn't put my finger on. Later on, I was pretty much sure that I smelled immortelle flower, that kept appearing and disappearing.Lastly, during the dry down I think I detected some vetyver, with fresh clean intimate body smell.
After all this time I decided to review this sample and also look its public aroma profile.Boy was I blown away. Very intricate choice of notes, hence the unique final product.Although I am familiar with all the notes listed I wasn't able to detect almost half of them.But the other half were definitely present.
Now for my final verdict, "Oeilleres" has a primal DNA that, to me, represents life at its beginning or final stage, depending where one stands.Even then it has some elements that brighten, dare i say sparkle, the strife. It's projection is inescapable and it's longevity mammoth.I also read that its production is limited to 519 bottles, which explains it's dear price for the 50ml bottles.
