The moor and the animals
Prin Lomros. In certain perfume circles, the name stands for quality even if not every one of its fragrances may be an olfactory highlight. But he offers a variety of fragrance experiences, mostly very intense and not at a knock-down price. The line Prin is now his line to introduce his favorite notes, his favorite fragrances, which should not be trimmed to be pleasing. I don't know all of them but the perfumes I know from the line allow me to conclude: Yes, I can confirm that.
Aran is now again a kind of dark green/brown perfume, similar to Mriga but also similar to Häxan. The latter is clearer, in terms of colour only green and thus more pleasing, somewhere rather the juicy green meadow. Aran is the bog. That's quite good, because the bog swallows everything it gets hold of. Be it the goat (goat hair) which has lost its way here and carries Aran significantly, be it the green around it, which becomes very pale due to the insatiable bog, becomes rather muddy.
What does Aran smell like? Actually, this scene, because it's animal, but not too strong. It's dominated by earthy, muddy tones. Oak moss is the base, incense is in the background and underlines the melange more like a ceremonial place of worship in the middle of a swamp landscape where incense is gently smoked. Nagarmotha or Cypriol is known from many of his creations. This ingredient provides for a very earthy appeal, it provides for the swamp character.
Of course, other notes also play a part in this. Fir balsam, for example, loosens up this deep earthiness a little and gives the fragrance that certain something. It smells like moist earth when it is complemented by an ethereal and balsamic note. Fascinating. While Mriga plays for me in colder forests, perhaps snow-covered, Aran takes us to swampier, warmer landscapes; it's not the moors of England, that much is clear.
With time, the animal kingdom breaks down. For me civet does not penetrate constantly but always for a few moments. Here the cardamom also resonates and complements the animalics in the right places without appearing too much in the foreground. Really great arrangement. At this point the forest elements retreat, the focus is now on the animals plus a slightly mushroomy smell, here it is quite possible that not everyone is going with the scent. But this fades away, because the swamp reclaims the protagonist role. The animal has inadvertently entered the swamp and can no longer make it out.
In conclusion, I can say that Prin has once again created an olfactory work of art. Certainly not wearable every day, which was not the goal. Aran is an honest, authentic scent of swampland, of the animal kingdom living there. I'm kicking you out of here now, I'm going to stay a little longer myself, because the durability is good as usual.
