Declining Blues Club
This could be an interesting perfume since its inspiration club is a Blues one. But, i don't see any references to the golden age of Bluess, but maybe to the 80's blues era since this fragrance has typical shape of creations from this time. Unfortunately, this is not a well made shape, it seems the imitation of something classic on a tight budget project. Kind of Blue opens with a strong aldehidc aroma, one of those that makes of think of candles, and then quickly turn into a combination, roses, tuberoses and a background of strawberries/berries. This combination makes me think that it might have beta damascone, that was very used during the eighties and has all those nuances. I don't see any flower absolute here, the tuberose and rose accord doesn't hide at all their synthetic side (not a problem if it was well worked). Strangely, after this intense floral phase the fragrance disappear on skin after 2 hours. I don't know what goes here, but certainly i cannot smel.If this is the representation of blues club, certainly is not one on its glory days.

Don't Join the Club -
Or [I]Stay Away from the Club[/I] in this case.
Opens with a soft orange blossom gripped by a very firm aldehyhde and a bit of bergamot.

Shortly jasmine and tuberose make their presence.
The tuberose is not a a voluptuous one like in Fracas or Beyond Love. It is very reminiscent of the tuberose in [I]A Travers le Miroir by Thierry Mugler[/I].

The mid notes are comprised of a floral accord, warm spices, benzoin and a mediocre amber.
At this stage there is no particular floral note standing out.
What has changed is the addition of a nondescript spice accord. Warm and glowing as opposed to perky like cardamom or pulsating clove. Very nondescript warm spices.

The mid feels very congested. Nothing stands out, nothing is shining yet there is a lot of things going on.

Its like rush hour at the train station. A lot going on but its all irrelevant.

It collapses towards the end.
The floral accord has been eradicated by a rabid aldehyde/generic dry down accord.
Smells harsh and very synthetic.

I wish I had access to a shower at work. So I can rid myself of it and spray something proper on.
