Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
The idea is that anything worthy of comment, either good or bad, that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. Up till now I have kept APJ positive comments only, those days are gone. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. Not everything works for everyone and it would be pretty boring if it did >>> YMMV. I’d love it if you all agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. The point is starting a conversation.
New Sniffs: 27.12.2018
Black Amber by Agonist
Opens warm, resinous and very lightly salted. Ethereal yet fully present fragrance. Patchouli and vanilla shine through but not overwhelmingly and a hint of green/minty something. The most beautiful representation of ambergris I’ve smelled in perfumery and so wearable. I’m surprised at how affordable this fragrance is and it’s shot to the top of my must-Have list.
Copal Azur by Aedes de Venustas
Thunked my decant of Copal Azur. There was about 1ml left and I pumped till it was air. Incense on a salty beach breeze. If you’ve ever been to the temples throughout Asia situated on the rocky cliffs next to the sea then you will have an instant fragrance memory hit. The incense is cold and charred with a whisper of smoke left.
Cuir by Carner Barcelona
Thunked the last ml or so of this baby too. Yep, it’s leather. Smells very nice.. A woodsy, bro kinda leather. I have leathers I prefer that are a bit sweeter or rougher. Carner’s Cuir is not so good on my skin, a little flat. I bet it wears 100% better in a cooler climate.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
