Mahodarā
I've purchased this as a sample in a quartet of scents. Tried this one first. The patchouli is strong and lasts all day on me. Even though it's labeled as unisex it's my opinion that it is male. A very empowered woman could wear it but not me. Going to give this to my husband. I think that he'll like it.

Multiple Personality...
Mahodara opens with deep warm clove spice and radiant, slightly waxy frankincense before gradually transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the frankincense remains, as its waxy facet gains strength, with smooth aromatic patchouli emerging as co-star with the clove shifting to a supporting role as it is joined by slightly salty, smoky tea-like immortelle spice early, then morphing to dry, woody tobacco leaf late. During the late dry-down the woody tobacco leaf dominates as the clove and frankincense vacate, leaving remnants of the patchouli coupling with soft just slightly animalic musk in support through the finish. Projection is excellent, as is longevity at over 12 hours on skin.

This is a relatively difficult review to write. On the one hand, the perfume opens with a fantastic clove and frankincense tandem that is absolutely captivating. This only proves more-so, as soft aromatic patchouli is added to the mix in the early heart. If things stopped there, this review would be a highly enthusiastic buy recommendation. Alas, the perfume starts to fall apart about two hours into the development when the dry woody tobacco leaf is added to the mix. This tobacco comes off smelling like it was infused with vague, dry synthetic smelling woods - norlimbanol to this writer, and whether it actually has the stuff or not, the resemblance is unmistakable and takes the wearer right out of the earlier enjoyment from its strong start. That this synthetic woody dry tobacco lasts and lasts through the finish doesn't help things any. All that said, those first couple hours really smell good enough to save the perfume from succumbing to the much longer lasting disappointing finish. The bottom line is the $90 per 50ml extrait concentration bottle Mahodara highly impresses early, only to fall somewhat flat late, still earning the overall effort a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5 rating, but only a tepid purchase recommendation due to the vast majority of the late development being marred by synthetic smelling dry woody tobacco.
