Subtlety in orientals, a niche in niche
Pardon me, but occasionally I do like exquisite light orientals.

Oriental Lounge is a relaxed beauty, far from oppressive, designed to make you feel good.
The opening notes give me the reliable sense of a good old fashioned peppery cleaning agent, which I highly approve of and simply must recommend.
In due course, a delicious amber lingers around, together with labdanum (love labdanum) and a hint of curry, inviting me to sniff my wrist at least every half hour.
No idea what satinwood smells like, but I cannot find anything disagreeable in this perfectly polished warm perfume.

Must try!

Thin Oriental
Prim and proper or pusillanimous? It's all a matter of taste, I suppose—one which I have yet to acquire in the case of the kinder, gentler, thinner orientals of which The Different Company ORIENTAL LOUNGE is one. Upon application, I was sure that I recognized the scent, and I probably did in the form of fleeting traces of many classic oriental perfumes, but here it was all too foggy and distinct, mealy-mouthed and weak.

"Thin orientals" seem to be wanting to be all things to all people but end by being simply too wishy-washy for me. I guess that I'm just old school when it comes to orientals. I like them dark, strong, and intoxicating. The sort of perfume that you'd have to wear to be noticed in a dark, smoke-filled oriental lounge, come to think of it. Does ORIENTAL LOUNGE smell bad? No, not at all. But it smells to me like the silhouette of a perfume.

Although ORIENTAL LOUNGE is not for me, anyone who likes this sort of "thin oriental" should definitely check out the Roméa D'Améor line (also composed by a great nose, but not his best work, IMNSHO).

Does it have gaiac-wood....?
...was my first question to the vendor when I sniffed it for the first time. The packaging said "Bois de Satin" whatever that was. Lateron I looked it up in google an - surprise surprise - it is gaiac wood.
Now I finally know for sure how gaiac wood smells like. I assumed it but was not sure. In some scents it doesn't disturb me (colonia intensa by AdP, Brooklyn by Bond) - maybe these scents don't contain that much. However I find it is really awful in Wonderwood, Serge Noire and some of the other modern (oud) orientals. Although this is a difficult note for me, Oriental Lounge is a respectable oriental. On my skin it gets quite sweet and spicy, too sweet for me. Reminds me of the Lutens style, maybe a bit more subtle.
Well, for my taste it is not earth-shaking, but I think that lovers of this genre will like it.
