La Grandeur de Ganesh
Elephant begins with an intense rush of green foliage in the opening as you crash through the bushes. Then, notes of coconut milk and cacao intermingle before the expedition comes to an end in a beautifully blended base of sandalwood.

Wafts of sillage are trumpeted at a medium volume and the longevity lasts with you throughout the day. It is a truly unique experience that brings a smile to your face with every whiff.

A wonderful journey of scent through the jungles of India.

Elephant is a Special Green Fragrance.
I really like Elephant, but what makes it special? Well, to me, it’s the place it takes me. The description on the site tells a story of wet canopies, lush jungles, and freshly upturned roots from the feast of the elephants, but what I get is a watering hole and a dry Saharan plain. The elephants coming out of the water, wet, but not for long as the heat whisks the water off them as they crunch over dry grass, leaving muddy footprints behind them. This is actually quite different from most of the reviews I’ve seen for Elephant, but that might just be because the cocoa and coconut notes present in the fragrance sing a lot more on my skin than they do on other people, which leads to a more dry wearing for me. Which ever way this does wear on you though, the fragrance is an incredible scent that will leave you smelling unique, but very pleasant. I do recommend you sample first to make sure you personally do like it before you buy it though.

Citrus woody tea
Powerful grassy green opening (Green Irish Tweed x 2), accompanied by earthy roots and a touch of sour citrus. The tea and citrus dominate into the mid, giving it a pleasant Earl Grey effect. Then it shifts again, turning increasingly woodsy, creamy, and masculine over time. A surprisingly creative composition with a very handsome smell.

Creamy, green sandalwood
I really love this unique fragrance! It's a tropical fragrance that is delicately woody, a bit creamy with coconut milk, the slightest touch of cacao powder that gives it a certain subtle bitterness, and a green quality that reminds me of banana leaves. Definitely gives me a jungle vibe, funny, far more than Kenzo's Jungle d'Elephant! I think it's gorgeous and works well in all seasons.

Crime scene tropical house
The door in the tropical house opens. Hot, humid air gets the glasses steamed up. Where's the elephant? Ah, he's chomping on a fig tree. The fig milk runs along the trunk, some tropical flowers are also chewed up...
Good shelf life, more than six hours in it...
Bring back the jungle in bad weather!

Elephant - Zoologist
I was lucky enough to test this sample early in its release, and as you come to expect with this house, you get something different each time. Would I wear this one?

Grandma's herb bed in the middle of the rainforest
Dense undergrowth, lush green leaves, shrubs and trees. Huge trees. With rainy treetops. Green in all its nuances. A very clear and straight scent, I think. The refinement comes here through the association of green. And the green here comes in a thousand colors. And it is powerful with a certain sharpness in all its freshness.
In the first moment it is as if you were standing in the middle of the rainforest, in the next moment a strong basil-like note emerges, mixed with other herbs (?), so that it smells like a herb bed in the garden.
The fragrance leveled off after just a few minutes, so that the herbs play themselves into the background again.
Personally, I like the smell better than wearing it as a perfume on my skin. However, this does not diminish the rating, because it is nevertheless cleverly made and a really great and unique fragrance.
... I can't help it, he reminds me of Vert d'Encens even after several days. Only much less ornate, more genuine and again damn close to nature

No leaf is safe anymore
The ecological role of the elephant: the threatening colossus with the tremendous hunger that leaves a path of destruction. A supposedly damaged ecosystem from which, ultimately, new life is growing. The description of the fragrance is so accurate and thoughtfully chosen that, to me, "Elephant" reflects the habitat of an elephant and its characteristics suitably. The fragrance starts with a fresh breeze and an authentic smell of green leaves. Very vividly, the top note reveals pure, juicy green. Here I perceive a minty to citrus undertone, which contributes to the aroma. From time to time, I also perceive a creamy impression of magnolia. If you stay with the image of elephants that run through the forest and pull the leaves from the branches of the trees with their trunks, until only bare branches remain, you can exactly find that in the fragrance. The green decreases more and more, is digested by the elephants and leaves behind a mossy, woody surface. It still gives me the impression of a lively landscape, but clearly battered, flattened. Nevertheless, I would describe Elephant as a cozy and tranquil fragrance due to the gradual reduction of the fragrance. I thought of an older bull elephant sitting in an armchair, telling the children from the herd about his adventures of yesteryear. It is an elephant that is not ready to attack. An elephant that emanates an almost stoic-like serenity. I find the fragrance easy to wear because it is well-balanced, but still powerful. It can already be perceived from a distance, like the leisurely yet clamorous approach of the pachyderms through the woods, accompanied by the trumpeting of their trunks. I rarely smelled a green scent in this form. I would not wear it myself, but the implementation is done very well again.

A picture made of damp soil, crushed branches and green leaves on a jungle floor recently roamed by a herd of elephants. Very artistic.
