He keeps sending me out on the road
Monday morning, already slightly annoyed as I went over and over the schedule for the coming week during the sleepless night. Bleak. Mourning the time when travel was still on the agenda, when the aperitif was the start of nice, long evenings.
Showered and dressed, I reach for On the road, put on the scent, close my eyes and enjoy the beginning of a wonderful journey.

You can literally hear the fire where you stand in the smoke of the birch wood. The journey begins. The warmth of the fire transfers to the tar, which mingles its aromas with those of the birch wood.
Somewhere in the distance, the tires of a car spin.
The fire draws to a close and I drape my leather jacket around the shoulders of my companion. We decide to continue the evening in a bar. Over drinks, the smell of tobacco mingles with the aromas of the birch wood and the leather of my jacket.
The wonderful night is coming to an end, the rising sun can already be seen. Thinking of future travels, I enjoy the sunrise and the scent of lemon and lavender.

I wouldn't mind if the journey went on and on like this. By now, the morning has progressed a bit and I find that home offices are more bearable with the right scent. The journey continues into the afternoon of my office day and then fades out very gently.

Now it's time to work off a few more of the day's pending items. In the end, I realize - the day actually wasn't that bad.

On the spicy lavender road
On the Road by Timothy Han appealed to me directly because I associate tar with road and I like it olfactorically very much. Nevertheless, it was clear that something has to come because with Black Tar I already have a formidable tar fragrance in my possession and I don't like to buy identical products unless they are leather perfumes. The good Timothy, however, designs about one fragrance per year, strives for very different directions and so I was curious. Honestly only half, because the fragrance was known to me, it was about the consideration of a purchase or whether the reality is not as beautiful as the past floating in my head.

In fact, Timothy opens with green tar for a few seconds, individual tufts of grass can be seen next to the asphalt in the scorching heat. This is dried out relatively quickly by the relentless temperatures. The heat piles up on the road, the air stands still and flirts. Mercilessly it smells of quite fresh tar. This tar is mixed with something successively.

It is the lemon truck that fell over on the road, which fell on its load and crushed it. This smells... kind of refreshing and a shade richer. Now it's easy to compare it to Poltergeist from Heretic but the latter is spicier, less black mass than On the Road. Basically lavender plays a role here, it gives the fragrance that spicy, herbaceous note that accompanies the tar.

At some point the birch tar cools down, it smells brittle and woody, somehow like cold ashes. Unfortunately - and this is the big shortcoming of this creation - On the Road flattens out rapidly after a strong start in terms of expressiveness. The birch tar reinforcing element disappears completely, so that a background noise still exists. But nothing more. Like a gentle breeze, the faded fire is still in the air; clearly too fast.

I still don't know if this scent is worth buying. It smells different from Black Tar, although outsiders will not notice the fine nuances. On the Road for me is a mixture of Black Tar and poltergeist, a compromise. Pleasing is to be seen relatively. So if one was too spicy, the other too dark, you should test here. Besides, you have to be a friend of understatement perfumes of this kind because of the rapidly decreasing intensity.

Unique and artistic, yet easy to wear
It's like a big bruiser pulling up outside a bar on a motorcycle, and you think maybe he's there for a Budweiser and a fight but then he orders a hipster microbrew and chats you up and it turns out he's a professor of English Literature, and he and his wife run a Bed & Breakfast on the weekends.

Quite original without being alienating (as Han's "Against Nature" can be) - Beautiful work. Love it.

As many have noted, it literally smells like a highway at first... hot tar, rubber tire friction on asphalt, a little exhaust...

Then there's citrus going on - I get bergamot more than lemon, and there's a hint of vanilla rounding it out, taking the sharper acidic edge off. Really well-balanced stuff. The pointed lack of any floral notes gives it a stoic, masculine quality, but that citrus and wee hint of lavender keeps it from being too self-serious.

Steaming tarmac and scorched grasses
The uncompromising car journey in the searing heat of the day. The searingly hot asphalt hits the nose, mingling with the warm, suffocating, scorched floral shrubs of the highway. Vague hints of smoky frankfurters cooking in the far, far distance, mingle gently with the bruised and grimy oil laden roadside shrubbery. The driver stops to ask the way in the garage. A gnarled face leans into the already laden atmosphere and adds a gust of smoky breath to the steaming plasticised car interior. The driver starts the car again and the smoky, tarry heaviness is lightened by the new lighter air of dried flowers and grasses with a citrus nuance. As the open road is approached, the smokiness recedes and the grasses and flowers linger with an almost ginger, citrus nuance like the last warm rays of sunset on the dusty fields.

An interesting car journey and even more interesting that the order of ingredients seems to be in reverse with the citrus's showing at the end and not the introduction. I like the fact the Mr Han makes his perfume really tell a story and are miles away from the generic productions currently called perfumes. These are short olfactory tales being told like a novelette. They may not be necessarily in the norm for perfumes but the tale is a good accurate one.
