Trudon, candle manufacturer since 1643 with headquarters in Paris, quasi founded with the birth of the Sun King, but clearly outlasting. The house will have seen exciting things, the end of the Thirty Years' War was not long away, industrialization soon followed. In any case, for some years perfumes were added to the candles. The suspicion is obvious, is it a room fragrance?

Yes and no, I would like to think. Olfactory this revolution is probably equal to the industrialization although the smoke has a green impact. From the beginning, someone has set fire to the cedar juniper, gray-dark smoke rises up the sky, it smells like smoke, not fire. This smoke is spicy-green, slightly peppery, moderate overall. It doesn't get more than moderate in intensity, either.

Here, the dry note of papyrus mixes in, which makes the fragrance slightly acrid what but is immediately captured by the elemi resin and angelica root. The sheer smoke is subject to constant change. Sometimes he wafting dry and fiery red through the forest, sometimes slightly wet-green; one would almost say, slightly balsamic within the scope of possibilities.

The smoke does not retain the upper hand, however. After 30 to 60 minutes, a charred smell remains, the cedar slightly cheats its way in but more in the sense of a cameo appearance by the director. Now other performers flash in the aftermath, the patchouli providing damp, earthy elements. Does well but the question remains if the focus wasn't different? After the industrialization follows a partial deindustrialization and renaturation, so to speak.

Well, what can one say? The incense resonates continuously, but is for me not carrying but rather supporting active. Overall, a pleasant smoke scent, lighter than some colleagues, reminds me of Fireside Intense by Sonoma Scent Studio. There are better, there are worse, a nice moderate smoke fragrance just.

With thanks to Cravache.

The better Bois d'Ascèse by Naomi Goodsir
Not a fragrance I would wear in public. Forget the whole scent pyramid. This one is in the first 1-2 hours almost 1 to 1 like Bois d'Ascèse by Naomi Goodsir i.e. nothing but black smoke and cold and stale ashtray smell.

But while Bois d'Ascèse keeps going on and can hardly get out of this black cloud of smoke, the revolution starts to light up and open after 2 hours. Very slowly the scent becomes more pleasant and wearable...one notices at least a little bit of the labdanum and patch but that is not enough for me to wear it. I will get the bottling empty at some point and wear this fragrance at home in certain mental phases but that's it. Good artistic note but this fragrance has no appeal for me

Sensual, Radiant Smoke
The opening of Révolution is fairly smoky. Not the kind of harsh, acrid woody amber aromachemicals, but the leathery smokiness of cade oil, reminiscent of the savoury nutty aftertaste of finely smoked ham (without the salty meat part).

The resins soon emerge to further smoothen the initial smokiness. Their balsamic smell and velvety texture enhances the sensual, musky leather undertone, which makes Révolution more fleshly and round than other smoky fragrances, often either austere and aloof, or fiery and aggressive.

What's more unusual of Révolution, is that, with the seemingly heavy note pyramid, the perfume has a surprising, luminous quality, and occasionally exhibits a bitter green, almost grassy smell, which I suspect is the doing of elemi and angelica. This subtle herbaceous nuance almost reminds me of II, another Trudon fragrance created by Lyn Harris, as if there's an internal link between these sibling creations.

Like the other Trudon fragrances, Révolution shifts incrementally. The nutty smoke gradually fades, while the mild leathery undertone and the subtle vegetal nuance remain in the dry down. The resins also grow dim, and hand over the baton to the musky sensual cedar. The end result is a radiant green woody skin scent. The patchouli hums in the background with its deep, dark, spicy medicinal facet in the dry down, when I apply only one spray to my wrist. But with two sprays on the same spot, there's a moment of dark cacao stemming from patchouli in the opening.

Révolution has a moderate sillage, and lasts about 9 hours on my skin.

While niche perfumery does not lack smoky fragrances, Révolution can still stand out as a refined, even sensual smoky perfume, in my humble opinion. I especially appreciate its finely tuned mellow nutty quality, which helps to avoid being acrid and forceful. Its surprising "human" feeling and radiance also makes it more approachable than most smoky fragrances without being boring. I'd definitely recommend it to those who are interested in exploring smoky perfumes.
