Tart galbanum and fresh citruses in the opening. Gin Fizz is green, floral, with an earthy oakmoss base. Could have been better blended.

This witches' cauldron's brew of smoked paprika, cinnamon-nutmeg-clove and leather just sings its way out of the flacon. Pure winter glory.

Great cheapie. Surprisingly fresh with lots of oakmoss. Works well with short sleeves on spring/summer days. A fresher take on Drakkar DNA.

Olibanum is myrrh and frankincense. The scent is oily, resinous with a woody drydown, spiced with cumin. Relaxing fragrance for colder days.

There's something quite kinky in this one. A dry, slightly animalistic leather that can leave you without any sensitive friends.
Love it!

An airy aquatic scent with a a hint of some kind of incense. It doesn't go anywhere new, as it knows exactly where it comes from.

Strong rubbery opening that softens up after 15-20 minutes, beautiful clean musk afterwards. Atomic performance and definitely no blind buy.

For its price it's a masterpiece. Strong rum and leather, very boozy, sweet and spicy, bit smoky. Could be overwhelming if you use too much

A beautiful scent, citrus/mint and a little booze, then dries in a elegant woody base. Alas longevity and sillage are under par…what a pity.

Far and beyond all words. A delicate and sweet rose with a fruity touch. Oud and cistus create a dense side dish, with a salty amber tinge.

Haltane opens with citruses, saffron and lavender. In the drydown, mainly cedar, green and woody. No oud, maybe just that hint of dark wood.
