The first ray of sunshine in the morning
Surrounding Threat is part of the Linen Collect trilogy, and truth to be told, it was the one that initially did not impress me much when I sprayed on the paper strip. Opened with a chemical smell that thankfully went away in 1 or 2 minutes. So things change quite quickly, and after a while, I started reaching for it, and today I am wearing it. This fragrance is almost unexpected. Just out of the bottle you might think it is quite light, very very light. But actually, as it proceeds, it becomes quite musky and powdery, and much stronger than what you think it gonna be. Well, it is an aroma highlighted by a bouquet of fragrant earthy, green and woody scented tones that will bring a sensual, calming and warm perfumed sensation. Examining it closer once applied you will notice a lingering quality of softer scented musky, animal wildlife and sour hints that hide an essence of uplifting, romantic and comforting feelings.

Based on the combination of notes I would classify it as Chypre Floral fragrance. Initially, it is very fresh and green, and a tad soapy, like a bar of body soap. There is a shadow of citrus and mild spicy accord, I presume a sort of lemon peel and just a bit of gentle peppercorn, pink pepper to be precise, so soft and tender compared to the piquant black one.

After about ten minutes it goes down to something muskier, more floral. The blooming and white flowers heart center notes blend in with iris and jasmine. Along with the musk, I get a lot of jasmine blossoms, and every now and then I get something oceanic, even though it is not an aquatic fragrance. Nevertheless, jasmine is the king of the heart, a signature of floral and powdery notes settle the heart of the fragrance.

The dry down is all about the sensual musky accord, yet I get some amber and earthy nuances typical of modern interpretation of patchouli and vetiver, the soft aspect of both.

Albeit it is an EDP, it is so light that you might need to spray a couple of times a day. This lovely scent is perfect for the warmer months. It is versatile as it can be used for every day as well as intimate occasion, it is perfect to wear anytime anywhere and is not overpowering, not cloying, and not to feminine even for men who like to dare.

Vibrant and intoxicating at first spray, it becomes warmer and more discrete after a few minutes. A perfect daily scent. Average sillage.

Floral powdery iris, heartened by Egyptian jasmine, balances the scent with vibrant depth while blondie wood melts into creamy, woody musks.
