Amazingly complex border crosser who surprises.
As a declared Widian fan I was very much looking forward to the fragrance. The sister fragrance London is one of my favourite fragrances, as it is a bit more general and western-modern than the black and golden Widians which rather appeal to the friend of the Arab fragrance art. London does a great job as a modernist without being boring (quite the opposite).
Now I thought that the pulsating metropolis of New York as a role model would also produce a rather modern fragrance. Think so.

New York starts with a short house of mandarin bergamot, the citrus fruits must always spurt forward. The spurt is short and does not last more than one minute, then other notes take over the command.
In the heart New York suddenly becomes amazingly dirty, animal components fight quite successfully for supremacy, the mandarin tries to fight its way through again and again. Gently, Rose will make it through a little bit. You'd think it was an oud scent, I'm confused at best. Light sweetness is included. Matching is difficult. My assumption is, that here a relatively dirty patchouli with also a bit harsher vetiver takes over the supremacy. The remaining notes, however, underline this with a slightly sweet creaminess, the caramel part can also be identified. And again and again the fruits and rose fight their way forward. Sounds a bit restless and unharmonious, but it's not that much.
Somehow at this stage I feel a little reminded of "Chimaera" by Tiziana Terenzi, who drives the interplay into completely different spheres. Who looks for a very calm smell should be careful here.
Over time, the hustle and bustle disappears, the dirty front retracts surprisingly far, the fragrance becomes even softer. Oh, there's the tobacco. If one could somehow suspect something in the heart, one could not place oneself in the foreground there. A very pleasant, soft tobacco. It is supported by tonka/vanilla and creamy parts (will probably be the musk with the iris). The second main role in the base is played by the flowers. Rose can still be guessed, but I think jasmine remains more present. The scent becomes very calm, very relaxed, so here it doesn't fit to the never sleeping New York anymore. The sweetness is well dosed and supported, the tobacco is natural and no overaromatized headache pipe tobacco.

New York is going through an exciting development for me. Not everyone's thing guaranteed, I like that. The base is enormously relaxed, in contrast to the modern and even slightly synthetic London (not meant negatively) I find New York very natural. It's a great fragrance. I just expected it to be different.
