Not so dark after all...
A very comfortable perfume which reminds me of Kismet and Shalimar.
The difference being Kismet is more dense because of the opoponax and Shalimar has a prominent leather note, while the leather in Opus 1144 is buried far in the background .
I must have bought the reformulation, because it does not at all feel dark to me.
Luckily I do not mind, I love this perfume; it could be my go-to for every day, summer to winter and back to summer again.
It feels like an airy lighthearted oriental, caused by the prominent bergamot and the iris.

Highly recommended.

Mythic tubereuse
A gorgeous new perfume by the house of Moresque.

I've already bought Seta and Ubar and I really want a bottle of Lady Tubereuse as well.
This is a surprising new take on tubereuse; the sweetness of the fruity notes, vanilla and tubereuse is tempered by angelica and vetiver.
Although its character is very different from my other two Moresque's, Seta being the spicy oriental and Ubar the more aromatic oriental, I can detect a certain underlying signature of warmth and dustiness.

Highly recommended!

You poor men to bear such a fate !!!
Good lord, what a mess...

Being an avid user of the most heavy spicy orientals, male and all, I expected Fate to be exceptional.

One has to be a cumin addict to appreciate this.
The stuff which usually makes me sick are suffocatingly indolic flowers.
I have entered new territory here, where cumin, with slight immortelle, incense and licorice added, gave me a splitting headache within 5 minutes to be followed by a nausea which threw all previously experienced nausea overboard.

Kudos to those who love it.

Under My Skin
The opening (when I sniff close to skin) is odd and bordering on repulsive, but the scent around me makes me weak in the knees: a combination of a subtle soft sweetness and warm spicy skin...
UMS is so deep and rich, none of the notes jump out individually and I love that. You sense them all sparkling together in unison, creating a cloud of mat golden dust.

Longevity: 24 hours on me
Sillage: subtly swirling around the room
Projection: about 2, maybe 3 feet

Francesca Bianchi is a genius.

Get up, get up, get up !!
To me "Le Bain" is that invisible full metal jacket which is always there for me.
Uplifting, re-assuring, fresh and velvety: time to re-assemble yourself for a nice change of scenery, clothing and company!
