From medicine cabinet to lush powder ... brilliant change
I love him! I love him!
Quite a sharp start, even something repulsive. It reminded me a bit of a hospital smell or medicine cabinet. In the course slightly sweet with slightly drunk wood. After about 2 hours it is powdered on my skin.
From half a meter away a very mild aroma, but as soon as the nose comes too close to the place where the perfume was applied, you can feel this sharp note again, which was at the beginning..... " It's my fault"

Strong fabric with elemental force
Thanks Nicola for this nose candy. I wouldn't have been able to smell otherwise.
Because I have not yet seen fragrances of this brand in any perfumery in the vicinity.
A truly powerful and smoky Patchouliduft with a lot of radiation and depth.
"Earthy" and "smoky" complement each other here in a very refined way, looking "behind things" instead of just showing them from their "front". A lively changing of the ingredients causes me an almost addictive continuous sniffing as soon as "Mea Culpa" is sprayed on, whereby a tiny amount of it at the scalding head is enough to create an earthy, well smoky "urate atmosphere", which reminds of old "Film Noire" stripes with unfathomable tension.
In which masterly camera settings and lighting support the action so effectively that you can hardly look away to miss nothing.
I could now call "Mea Culpa" "Hitchcock fragrance" in my mind, but THAT alone doesn't really apply.
It is literally like that that this scent wants to suck you in, to look from the inside out, and to see the world from the "other side".
Not for a second do I doubt (if I have a drop of it on me) that I am right in the middle of the action around ancient forests, dark alleys. Shadows behind trees and walls and who knows how many "pleasant creeps" I have, and I enjoy that everything is on the "safe side".
A very strong material with elemental force, which creates "goose bumps of the comfortable"......
