The smell of the 80's
A good old cheapo that smells like the 80?s. I could not find what year it was released in, I suspect in the early 90?s, but it certainly smells like a powerhouse. It opens with bergamot and a floral-fecal note that grabs you by the nose and holds you captive. Nothing in the official note listings justifies the fecal aspect in this but I assure you it is there. I swear I can smell traces of Kouros in this but what is impressing is how early on the development they become apparent. I really cannot say whether civet makes a cameo appearance or what I pick up is a play between patchouli, vetiver and amber. I also get this ghost of white flowers in there that is also not listed officially but gives this perfume a distinct nocturnal aura. After the opening the composition is bitter, mate and earthy. A combination of herbal elements, earthy patchouli and animalic fervour. In the deep drydown a lavender-like note, probably thyme, appears and gives this a more masculine impact. As much as this fits into the powerhouse genre I cannot help but think that it has elements of feminine scents of a previous era. Smells mystical, floral and decadently sensual. I find it slightly ironic that the name implies a very masculine fragrance and it is if examined in the current context. But I am sure that women who enjoy big, ballsy fragrances would find this very wearable.
