Seasoned cuttings
Such a sonorous name (both of the supplier and of the fragrance) wouldn't have made me expect to have to deal with green-spicy mush at the beginning: An old lawn cut that may wander into the brown ton after a few days in a plastic bag. Already lightly snapped through, with a few nettles and leaves in between.

A hint of fruit fades before I have a chance to sort it out. My first thought does not go in the direction of citrus, but is fig, as if it were an interface to the topic of green. In addition a gentle earth nutiness.

But those are side issues. The second main actor next to the persistent green is a rather strong, intensively mortard-out spice, in which I cannot recognize any details at first. I sign the cream contribution diagnosed by Fluxit (thank you very much for the sample!) after barely half an hour, but it remains the accompaniment of a seasoning mélange that almost touches the leather as it progresses. In the further course of the morning it becomes more authentic spicy again, so to speak - even though this stubbornly less attaches itself to concretely identifiable aromas, but rather seems to come from an increase in essential oil.

Thyme does not peel out until around noon. Yet he does not master the scent, does not become edible. On the following test day I smell him with the knowledge of it earlier, there he stretches his feelers ahead into the front hours. His broader body parts, on the other hand, definitely belong to the afternoon. That's a hell of a lot in the second half. My last candidate with a similar abundance of thyme was Serge Lutens' Ambre Sultan. He had an overdose of it in his luggage up front. Mixes quite strangely with the composty-green part.

Conclusion: Despite the heap of thyme, 'Omeyocan' does not become gourmandig, not even as a kitchen herb gourmand I would call him. That can be considered a respectable achievement. However, I apparently lack the understanding for this combination of compost and Mediterranean spice.

Peaceful Shimmering
I like Tolteca as a brand. Really really great flacons with decorative wooden cap and fine atomizer. You can even remove the cap with the beautiful relief and attach it to the supplied key ring. I seldom rate flacons, but this one has impressed me so much that I recently decided to buy them spontaneously after a short test of the sample.

Omeyocan starts green fresh, with a delicious bitter grapefruit flavour. Sour and funny-fruity. Quickly softly creamed off, a friendly twist. After a few minutes then dry, almost earthy. Interesting how both Angua's statement of closeness to Earth and Maggy4u's image of the air element apply. Omeyocan is serious yet light on his feet. Okay, direction light men's cologne, but far away from the aftershave and easily executable by the female sex.

After about half an hour a herbaceous note slips into the overall picture. Thyme or basil, I'm not sure. The fragrance reminds me of "Mandarine Sanguine / Ruby Tangerine", which also begins freshly citric and transforms into herbs. It's called thyme there, fits. I would prefer it without this herbal note, even if the enhanced complexity is welcome. Overall, Omeyocan remains discreet and pleasant, hardly overdosable. Flirts peacefully to himself.

At the moment, the flacon first comes decoratively to its more disreputable cabinet siblings. If you are interested, feel free to write to me, sooner or later you will be on your way.

Duality
In addition to my niche excursions, I also like to test the part of the fragrance world that goes in the direction of natural fragrances. The almost exclusive use of natural ingredients is not only exciting, but also a possibility of olfactory reset for me. Most fragrances today are characterized by exuberant density or synthetics. It's easy to lose the origin. The question of "how does it smell" can hardly be answered conclusively from today's mainstream or niche perfumery. In addition, many - especially natural - ingredients have now been banned. Or for ethical reasons hardly be used anymore. The Tolteca brand is committed to precisely these ethical reasons - not harming any animal for a fragrance. And makes his perfumes pure vegan.

The current collection comprises 6 fragrances, each representing the three elements air, earth and fire. In each of these elements there is a fragrance for the woman and the man.

Omeyocan is the air-men fragrance and a classic chypre. The wonderful name Omeyocan from the original language Nahuatl goes back to the Aztec mythology and describes the highest of all skies and the seat of a "dual" deity. The two sexes united in themselves or simply a couple is/was. This approach of duality is very common in ancient cultures that were hardly monotheistic. All the more I was surprised that the women's fragrance of the air element is called Quetzalli, and not after the female deity in Omeyocan, Ōmeteōtl - the goddess of fertility and all being.

Omeyocan starts off wonderfully classic hesperidic and immediately surrounds me with an aura of bitter freshness and discreet woody green. I own a few men's vintage scents. Among them also the Dior - Eau de Cologne Fraiche. This classic start - with simultaneous unplayfulness - yes, almost clarity is beautiful. And especially at the thought that all this happened in the vegan sense, it touches all the more.

Lavender in particular makes Omeyocan even more of a classic cologne, but somehow without time or space. It doesn't look dusty and in its presentation so to the point that I smile again and again when I take my nose off the back of my hand.

In the base and towards the drydown I particularly like the hay note, which brings in a natural aspect and promises everything a soft green.

From the concentration I would assess Omeyocan around an EdT of durability and projection. I do not only feel this to be very honest, but also very well dosed. You really wear this scent for yourself. One would probably have to bathe in it to achieve a room-filling projection. But, who wants that?

For me, Omeyocan is exactly the scent for a Saturday morning when the world wakes up. I have my coffee and I look out into nature. I can be glad that there is also a consciousness for them in perfumery.
