"Doctor, this may be piano..."
Richard Strauss' opera "Die Frau ohne Schatten" is extraordinarily demanding, both textually and musically. Five high-class singers are needed to cast the leading roles. The libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal is no less hard stuff, interspersed with psychological symbols and allusions. Sample? I'd love to: At the end of the first act the fish sing in the frying pan - with the voices of five unborn children. To the happy end of the opera, the latter may announce their soon-to-be-not-more-unborn.

On the long way there it's not easy for the orchestra either. From the rehearsals for the premiere under the composer's direction in October 1919, it is said that one of the musicians complained: "Doctor, that may be possible on the piano, but never on my oboe! To which the maestro replied: "Now calm down, you can't do it on the piano either."

Rhubarb - Heliotrope - Oud - Frankincense - what white? That's never possible! Amazingly, it works. That's because... Shh, we don't want to anticipate.

From the front: There are relatively tame rhubarb, like rhubarb berries. Quickly taken back and put in a row with a trace of sweet smoke à la 03.Apr.1968 (by chance also by Arturetto Landi). A hint of oud acidity from the rough leather corner, please. But above all woody, with relationship to Mythical Woods (coincidentally also by Arturetto Landi, although younger). And completely by chance it unfolds a proximity to Black Afgano, only more "sandy" and creamy. I consciously avoid the term "sandalwood" - see below my PS.

The Black-Afgano impression even intensifies in the course of time, flanked by equally swelling sweetness, with partial vanilla attitude - aha, rhubarb jelly with vanilla sauce, apparently low in calories produced from heliotrope. After two hours, I smile at a hint of peanut. However, all this should not hide the fact that the fragrance is quite stable. Only at noon it becomes milder, even more "sandy". Instead of frankincense I would have bet more on myrrh.

The and-if-the-goes-notice is now that the rhubarb acts as a sticker, not a banner. On the merged Black-Sandalo-cream simply a certain acid (presumably oxalic acid...) bounces around into the afternoon without becoming dominant. This refreshes and contributes a little airiness, which I find very beneficial. But even after the acidity has disappeared, the creamy texture can be balanced by adding typical oud-like wood with a minimal medicinal touch. A tiny pinch of fine vanilla delivers a kind of Italianità.

There is no doubt that Mr Landi did not take one or two loans from himself alone. I also understand all those who think the fragrance is strange; un-oboig to warm up the above analogy. Moreover, those who call Sept.21.1966 more effective than refined: Full agreement.

I don't give a damn. I like it. Apparently Mr. Landi hits a nerve with me.

PS - Considering the theme of sandalwood already mentioned in Aura's commentary, I ask myself the following question: There is this synthetic substitute Javanol (which I've only had the pleasure of smelling pure with a strip of Molecule 04 paper so far). Is it possible that a thickened, concentrated version of it is (partly) responsible for the Black-Afgano idea? Relevant hints are welcome as always.

I thank Yatagan for the rehearsal.
