No5 Rosendo Mateu
I was so curious about this fragrance , so matching my favourite profile ( after reading Fragrantica reviews) ,that I blind bought a full bottle from high end retailer. First spritz - OK, I can't smell anything... And Boom! Strange note of latex over smooth ,vanilla custard.
This undeniably strange perfume slowly transforms into soft , slightly floral amber. The latex note becomes more dense, revieling itself as somewhat woody, maybe even oudy accord. Yes ,it smells a bit like car garage grease, but ever so gently that actually gives some ," down-to-earthness" to this angelic scent. I only use one spritz ,and I think it is enough for me. I can't smell it with my nose next to the skin , but I can definitely smell a scent bubble around me. How strange is that, as if the fragrance is almost to intense for the nose to register when smelled directly.
I am looking forward to exploring it further and may give some updates on my review.
