Mood Indigo opens with a synthetic woody-peppery accord made thicker and “juicier” by green-floral notes and something slightly earthy-vegetable (pimento, I guess). Warmer, cozier sandalwood-incense-amber drydown, a bit more pleasant than the first stages. Several designer scents come to mind, pick any woody-peppery-amber scent somewhere between 2000 and today and mix it with anything from Comme des Garçon’s Incense series. Maybe just a tad sharper and more “minimalist” (i.e., plain) here. Buxton’s style at its best, where “Buxton’s style” means using the same three or four dry, cold synthetic woody-peppery-incense notes again, and again, and again. Anything the abovementioned Comme des Garçons or other “contemporary mainstream” brands could have accomplished 10 years ago, at a fraction of this price. Now, I admit I am really not the greatest fan of this kind of perfumes except for a few of them, so I may be particularly un-sensitive to this type of inspirations, but this really seems the epitome of boredom to me. It smells decent, but completely dull and mute. And kind of cheap too. An icy transparent blend which appears as interesting and charming as a cute, still kind of lame model whose career won’t probably go any further than posing for some Asos underwear pages.
