Spice bergamot grey-green
Citric radiant, spicy green prelude. That's how AugustA likes it. The fragrance quickly becomes milder and remains green and spicy. Coriander and nutmeg, mild.
Complete absence of flowers instead of spices. Not oriental, rather herbaceous.
Grey-green tissue, the spice bergamot has an overall nice shelf life.
In the end, the fragrance unfortunately (only for Augusta) becomes somewhat brittle with sharpness, which makes it rather a candidate for men's skin, because otherwise it has the tendency to become pointed. However, it is a real recommendation for anyone who likes it invigorating green with strong, spicy intonation, even at the end!

Cold As Ice...
De Bachmakov opens with a fresh near bitter green sharp aromatic fig and bergamot combo. As the composition enters the early heart phase the green fig somewhat settles down to allow the bergamot to dominate as slowly a woody vetiver-like undertone permeates the sharp citrus. During the late dry-down the bergamot and bitter-green fig never completely disappear, instead they now support the soft woody accord that takes on the mantle of star through the finish. Projection is average to slightly above average, as is longevity at 7-9 hours on skin.

De Bachmakov is a composition that while relatively bare-bones is quite skillfully executed by Ms. Ellena. On the one hand its piercingly sharp green nature can come off as cold and clinical, but once you get used to it the overall fragrance profile is actually quite captivating. The composition is quite linear, but as the aromatic green fig softens during the dry-down the composition has an opening to let its subtle woody facets shine through. The bottom line is the $230 per 90ml bottle De Bachmakov is quite the hard sell at its relatively expensive cost per milliliter, but while the composition can be quite clinical, linear and spare it does smell good earning a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5 and is indeed recommended.

Refreshing Tarragonesque Shiso
Tarragon. That's what I thought that I was detecting upon initial application of The Different Company DE BACHMAKOV. Shiso leaves appear to be the note which imparts wafts of that particular, familiar greenish scent to this fine perfume.

I am reminded vaguely of Isabella Rossellini MANIFESTO, which has a similar overall aesthetic, but unfortunately is fatally marred by its probably entirely synthetic--and to me poisonous--components. I owned MANIFESTO for about a decade and finally swapped it away because I found it utterly unwearable. DE BACHMAKOV offers an excellent example of why people turn to niche perfume: no poison here whatsoever, just a pleasing blend of green notes, wood, light spices and light woods, which conspire to produce a truly enjoyable composition perfect for summer and spring.

I recommend this composition to guys and gals alike who appreciate a very natural-smelling clean and green cologne. Simple yet satisfying.
