For the classic chypre lovers
Woody aromatic chypre, it opens very green and sharp, as if you are in the middle of a dark wild forest. Quickly the rose (geranium) with hot spices joins the composition and lasts like that until the rich base full of oak-moss, resins and woods appears. For the classic chypre lovers.

She Came To Stay, But I Left With Vendetta pour Homme...
She Came To Stay goes on with a highly aromatic natural smelling lemon spiked basil spice with hints of underlying clove before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the deep, smooth clove remains, now as co-star, joining slightly sharp, aromatic natural cedar wood as the focus, with cinnamon-like nutmeg spice, woody vetiver and earthy patchouli support. The composition stays highly linear through the late dry-down, as the clove and cedar remain co-stars through the finish shedding their supporting notes as the development runs its course. Projection is average, as is longevity at around 8 hours on skin.

She Came To Stay is somewhat tough to evaluate for this writer. On the one hand, the composition smells superb, with its lifelike approximation of cedar wood and deep clove spice, not wholly unlike a personal favorite underrated Edouard Flechier perfume from 1991 called Vendetta pour Homme by Valentino. This is not a copy, but it does have the two primary notes that dive that one, with She Came To Stay also having a couple key supporting notes of basil and patchouli, then swapping similar nutmeg for the cinnamon in Vendetta. Similarity aside, another thing She Came To Stay lacks is any real development. This is not a major weakness (especially since it smells incredible), but Vendetta, while similarly incredible smelling, has much better performance, is the more complete perfume... and it came first. While discontinued, Vendetta pour Homme also can still be had on the aftermarket for a relatively inexpensive sum in comparison. The bottom line is the $160 per 60ml She Came To Stay is a fine all-natural perfume effort by Mr. Timothy Han, but it comes far too close to a superior release from a superior perfumer to earn higher than a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5 rating and an avoid recommendation due to the similar, but superior smelling and performing Vendetta pour Homme being easily obtained for less.

..... and she took me with her
She came bounding into my senses, her new cedar basket over her arms which were full of herbs, spices and citrus balms. She didn't pause to say hello, just pushed my face hard into the green and herbal blooms, all just crushed and a little harsh from their recent picking. The fresh green air lingered in her hair. No sooner than I could catch my breath and get a rest from the heady herbal aromatics, she grabbed me by the hand and led me back into the forest from whence she had just come. We ran joyfully through the forest herbs and ferns, crushing all the new geraniums beneath our feet. We came to a clearing and flopped down in amongst all the moss and the strongly moulding leaves. Breathing fast and deep with the intoxicating forest floor swirling around us. A strong breeze of minty fresh air floated over our bodies whilst we lay in our crushed herbal bed of mingled aromatics and woods. She pulled a flask, took a swig and passed it to me. A dark liquid stung my throat. It was zwack unicum and neat. The mixture of minty herbal breeze, forest and the heady bitter alcohol swirled into my senses. I fell back into the moss and slept. The intensity of all these things fading from my senses all too fast...... a waxy memory replaced them like a dream of a fragrant candle.
