I was really excited when today’s fragrance came out but it’s taken me this long to get my bloody sniff on it. I love Ulrich and when I saw APSU in a split recently I went ahead and grabbed a decant.
APSU by Ulrich Lang 2016
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Green leaves, coriander, violet leaf, bergamot
Heart: White tea, jasmine, water lily, pink pepper, iris
Base: White musk, cedar, amber, olibanum
You want to wear green fragrance but are bored by the galbanum rich CHANEL No 19, Silences, Niki de Saint Phalle and Vert Boheme? You have had the green grass/peony/cucumber scents beyond your ability to bear?
I think I’ve found the remedy. Here we have green leaves like soft pulpy hydrangea and the bitter snap of camellia leaves, they are glassy smoothed by the cool powdery green of coriander seeds. The heart is a floral bouquet, dewy and satin soft against your cheek given a zing with pepper. The layers unfold slowly and give you time to savour each new facet. To notice the changes though you need to be paying real attention because they happen completely under the radar. If you’re living your day there will be moments where you are reminded you’ve got fragrance on because it has shape shifted.
APSU is never a big scent, once the initial extravagance has blown off you get a beautiful low level crisp green scent that works beautifully here as autumn moves to winter but I think it would be wonderfully cooling in the hot summer months too. Refreshing to the very end and unusual enough to keep even the most dedicated perfumistas nose sniffing.

I follow via email mainly. I never heard of this house! Thanks for the education. I don’t have many green frags in my wheelhouse. Actually, none. I like them but it’s an area I haven’t explored much. I love grassy scents. Sometimes, “green” scares me because I think “bitter, herbal, medicinal, vetiver.” So, I haven’t reached out to sniff. Nightscape sounds interesting! Green with geranium and leather.
I’m not bored with Niki de Saint Phalle but I’d like some apsu. 🙂 Follow by e-mail…Anvers 2 with mimosa
Nightscape-amber. I follow by email. This does sound cooling for the summer. Thanks for the draw.
Keeping with the theme: geranium leaves in Anvers.
Following by email. Thanks for the draw opportunity.
