Adi ale Van / Dilema
Very cool and carnal ... leather and woody fragrance. The beginning is spicy and incense resin (myrrh) mixed with leather notes. The farther away, the more leather and wood comes out and this is the main leitmotif of this fragrance, which for me is a bit similar to Duro (Nasomatto). There is also one interesting thing about it that I feel over time ... an interesting and tarry note. A bit similar on my skin it comes out as in Oud Imperial (Monte Carlo) or Dark Aoud (Montale) or maybe Black Tourmaline (Durbano). I think it's due to cypriol and slightly 'dirty' patchouli. A fragrance for me, probably more for men. Fairly good projection for 2-3 hours, then close to the cutaneous. Durability up to 6-8 hours.

No light is allowed in your basement
The timer in the stairwell, its monotonous ticking always goes off when you push open the gate to the vault, the Bakelite light switch cannot be turned and you are allowed into the darkness. Bright is the breeze of the cool cellar, like damp earth the smell of the masonry, on its ceiling sparkles tart-sweet and bitter a black light of liquorice.
In the indistinct stands a leather sofa, you slowly settle down on it, you feel it more and barely smell it, it has become one with the musty room, with the wooden slats separating the plots that begin to light the verdigris like moss and everywhere warm dust swirls sweet resin shards through the damp brown leaves that fall through your thoughts. No light may enter this world.
**
"Dilema" is distributed through Flavius Călajs' niche perfume house in Arad, Romania, which collaborates with renowned perfumers and tries to have as much as possible handcrafted by small local companies, a process that lends itself to limited editions.
The fragrance opens with an accord of dank, earthy cellar patchouly, which is sharpened and softened at the same time by tartly sweet and ethereally bitter licorice. The liquorice provides a direction, a bright reflection of light on black oil, which is soon absorbed by leather and quenches it at the same time. The impression of a cozy cellar remains, in which mossy woods and dusty-sweet myrrh resins counter the cool dampness with the necessary warmth, making "Dilema" an absolutely portable, moderate fragrance.
