An incredible vision for a fragrance
Silk Way was suggested to me in my search for dark vanillic scents. Immediately, it intrigued me: "Silk Way was born of the raw materials that once traveled the legendary road from East to West."

What an incredible vision for a fragrance, and what an intriguing point in history to draw inspiration from! And Silk Way definitely delivers. It's got a cool & breezy silkiness, just as the name implies. The spiciness is mouth-watering and exotic. It's smooth, sensual, and has an almost "wet" quality, which makes me think of rain and thunderstorms. My only regret in blind-buying Silk Way is not having found it sooner!

As for its resemblance to Barbara Bui's Le Parfum, I'll reiterate my thoughts on their similarities from my BB review: After finally trying them side-by-side, the differences are clear. Actually, I think the color of each fragrance explains the difference quite well: Barbara Bui is a sensual warm amber & woody blend with a powdery quality; Silk Way seems 'cooler' - a light incensey musk & damp, dewy cedar. Both are worth trying, especially for the incredible price. Though my preference definitely lies with sleek & mysterious Silk Way.

Smoky Cedarwood
"Silk Way" by Ted Lapidus was on sale at TKMAxx last week and I bought it without sampling, since I remembered many favourable reviews of this scent. And then, I also like the name, evoking the ancient trade route that used to link China, India, Persia and Europe. "Silk Way" starts with slightly fruity notes and a bit of lemon (nice!), but the dominant accord is an incredibly cloying, synthetic cedarwood-cinnamon-combo. I don't get any flowers and as the extremely strong fragrance softens, I smell artificial incense and cedarwood. The composition turns very smoky and unpleasant on my skin and I'm disappointed, because there are quite a few Ted Lapidus perfumes I like. Alas, "Silk Way" is a negative experience for me, but the bottle is nice and I might give this fragrance another try in winter.
