Entering the Dark Evergreen Forest...
Mriga goes on with a moderately aromatic and slightly bitter, deep, dark green wormwood and fir balsam focal tandem with sharp woody vetiver support before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the dark fir led green accord remains, coupling with an emergent strong animalic musk that permeates and enhances it, supported by gothic dulled rose and a touch of gauze-like Oud. During the late dry-down the dark green aspect vacates as remnants of the residual musk join slightly powdery amber-like labdanum with an added leathery facet through the finish. Projection is average and longevity very good at around 10 hours on skin.

Going into trying Mriga I had heard that the composition was musk focused. As I tend to dislike heavy animalics, I had a bad feeling the perfume would not be my cup of tea. It turns out, however, that perfumer Prin Lomros has composed a real winner that is the perfect balance of animalic musk with a very convincing dark green fir balsam. The supporting dulled rose adds a very nice additional facet to the composition that is subtle, but extremely effective in achieving the balance sought. It should be mentioned that the musk used here is synthetic, but it never comes off smelling that way, instead rounding out some of the most off-putting aspects of real deer musk, while maintaining the realism of the "good stuff." I strongly prefer it to real deer musk and would love other compositions to follow suit if they can pull it off as well as in Mriga. If there is a weakness to the composition, it would have to be in the late dry-down, as Mriga turns a bit bland with the gentle powdery amber-like labdanum finish that while pleasant smelling, is somewhat of a letdown after a great aromatic open and the balanced musky green heart that impressed so much. The bottom line is the animalic expectations of the $190 per 30ml bottle Mriga may scare off some, but the perfume is actually very approachable and is a "very good" to "excellent" 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5 rated effort by Prin Lomros that is recommended to all but the most animalic perfume averse among us.

Gathering Wilderness
Prin Lomros is quite well known here and his fragrances, which I was allowed to test so far, all had something. Some of them were still a bit unbalanced, others were thematically well realized. Anatolia is one example, which is not my profession because of its scents, but I can say that this fragrance was wonderfully realized. Now then Mriga, in German wild animal. A fragrance that seems to be dedicated to the musk animals of the Himalayas. Here a short note, there is no real musk included.
A scent of twilight is said to be mriga and so I am surprised about the implementation. At least right from the beginning it starts intensively with the scent of strict deer musk. Yes, it smells strict but at the same time sublime, I like to imagine the alpha animal here, how it looks from a high rock at the territory of its herd. So the even-toed ungulate roams through its territory, through the woods. From step to step with its herd, the musk becomes more digestible, less intense in its expressions, but also harsher and more resinous. It becomes clear that we are in a deep forest, the fir tree gives the fragrance balsamic elements, the juniper still smokes gently and distantly, but we are approaching it.
Dark spruces line up like a wall, we slowly zoom out, get a bird's eye view and leave our herd for a moment. The grass is sprouting everywhere in the forest, even vetiver can be seen which gives the scent its earthy aura, almost swampy. This is supported by the cypriol which supports the earthy note and adds a slight herbaceousness. At this point, the fragrance's calming, peaceful effect is to be commended, as it works with many ingredients that are already intense in themselves, but still succeeds in radiating calm in its effect.
The smell of burning juniper needles comes closer and closer, our journey continues. Here now a smoky, almost smoky-leathery scent emerges, which becomes stronger and pushes back the musk. The smouldering and the smoke become stronger, our deer approach the juniper, get intoxicated by the ethereal vapours, eat from the berries and let themselves drift. Now everything is shrouded in mist and we slowly leave the scene, following other deer whose path crosses wormwood. I think so, it has been there for a while but now its very special, light marijuana note comes out more. Much more dominant I notice now the costus root. This sweaty and anal, this aromatic and earthy one seems to glow a little bit as well, because the smoke of the costus root with its olfactory properties tells us about it.
Mriga as a tribute to the musk deer or the woods works by the contained artificial deer musk alone. This is underlined by the most different forest impacts, which are broadly diversified, just as the musk deer roams in the most different forests, even if one limits the place to the Himalaya. Juniper sometimes proves to be difficult and quickly too much, here it is wonderfully balanced and smells wonderfully glowing smoky.
It is difficult to put scents like this into words. Mriga is an animal journey through the woods, Prin Lomros tells us a story, which is not bright but not deep black either. So twilight might be true. Often we talk about the changeability of a fragrance and attest to it when it is only about changing nuances. Here not only fractions change, but the whole fragrance changes, and not just once. Mriga invites you to accompany the deer on their way and to dive into the fragrance. I gladly accompanied them.
By the way, thanks to my trusted prin-dealer AdAstra.

The rutting call
Preface

I'm a friend of dark or also from time to time of bombastic animalism, whereby there is here the (I call it times completely value-free) Hau-Drauf-Animalik or better still faecal-animalik a la Hyrax or Stercus (that can have also quite something for itself) or however the rather more pleasing or also more cuddly sort a la Fortis or Camel.

I write this in advance, because probably Mriga must have a slight preference for woody and animal scents...

Already Aran with his green-etheric animalism has taken a rather unusual and perhaps even new path for me. Mriga does the same for him. This fragrance also breaks new ground (at least for me) in the field of animalics. Both fragrances are unique in their combination of ingredients as well as in the way the animal theme was implemented.

The fragrance

*Covered in fog, glittering with single rays of sunshine that fight their way through the almost impenetrable foliage, the huge trees rise up into the morning sky.
The forest life awakens. Bird sounds and crackling on the forest floor, the smell of damp moss, grass and earth; the familiar smell of nature and animals. *

Mriga opens with a shower of musk; fir and herb. Deer musk, to be exact. The whole thing is accompanied by a herbal-citric note, in which the citric remains so strongly in the background that it's hardly worth mentioning, but somehow also fits in perfectly and provides some contrast.
The prelude is like standing in the densest forest and absorbing the numerous forest, meadow and animal aromas while sucking a Ricola Swiss herb candy.
String and at the same time totally beautiful.

*Between the creaking branches a graceful antler pushes itself through. Grasses crackle, the stones crackle with every step of the graceful creature. The call of the king of the forest sounds deafening and beguiling at the same time. The branches vibrate. The birds startle and rise fluttering into the air, high above the still swaying treetops *

Deer musk and costus root, in the middle to later fragrance course also civet, do not directly set the tone, but carry the fragrance image significantly and ensure that - living up to the name - the entire fragrance can ultimately be described as animlic-spicy-balsamic-green.
Civet adds spiciness, but this is well buffered or kept in check. The more earthy and woody nuances take care of this.
Flowers, especially the rose, flash through every now and then, but disappear just as quickly again. As if blown by the wind in between.
For this purpose, wormwood (probably also labdanum) comes into play and gives the whole forest scene a small liquor note.

*With a relaxed glass of wine, sitting on the forest floor in the twilight. Everything is right and everything is somehow great. No worries, no obligations. The forest, the animals and me. And my glass of wine
End

Mriga is characterized by a rather dark fragrance. Not destructive or depressive. Dark, enveloping, powerful, for the right candidate (me) maybe even a little meditative.
Sometimes the fragrance appears powerful and warming, sometimes calming and cooling.
I am noticeably fascinated and can forgive the 10 with a clear conscience, because for me Mriga is an extraordinary fragrance in every respect
