I love Complex. That was my first Boadicea. This was my second. It is very like Complex but goes on with a floral top notes and not as much smoke and rubber; dries down woody and balsamic.

Smoked leather. In ancient realms and an old age of tending the horse saddle by a medieval castle or smoking campfire.

It's interesting but this is basically Aventus's sister without the huge bouquet of fizzy fruits and blackcurrant.

So it's smoky and there is definitely some richness and tiniest bit of sweetness from the amber or resinous notes used and a very good smoky-leather note. But sadly, I hate the ashy type of smoke, only incense would suit me here, but this is more straight up burnt wood-ashes.

It's Ok but Aventus for me offers far more with vivid fruits, rose and heady rich oakmoss - there's a very good reason why it's accustomed with so much hype furor and for me it's still the definitive standard of rich, regal and imperialistic grandeur fougare.

Strangely, because Aventus is sweeter, I think it's much more suited for women than this one! This is just as masculine as Aventus in every par of the smokiness.

Scent: 5/10.
Quality: 9/10.

I don't know the fragrance unfortunately but I can assure to Sherapop that Boadicea is a noun, not an adjective... Boadicea was a warrioress, queen of the British Iceni tribe. She is still an important cultural symbol in the United Kingdom.

Boadicea apparently means "victorious," so the name of this line translates into "Victorious the Victorious," making this fragrance, then: Victorious the Victorious Warrioress. Hmmm... the similarities between the Boadicea and the Bond no. 9 lines are multiplying with each passing day.

First, there's the three-word name beginning with Bo. Next, the actual meaning of the name is either vacuous or tautological (Bond no. 9 being the address of the business.) Then there's the general aura and spirit of megalomania governing these enterprises: each of these houses appears to be attempting to take over the olfactory globe in its own way.

Added to that, each began with a neat, clean concept (Boadicea: adjectives of virtue such as noble; Bond no 9: New York City neighborhoods) but then admitted little inconsistencies here and there: WARRIOR is a noun, not an adjective; SAKS FIFTH AVENUE and HARRODS are stores, not neighborhoods; and where in the world do TEXAS and NEW ORLEANS fit into this neat little schema, pray tell??????)

Both of these houses produce new fragrances with mind-boggling frequency only to be roundly denounced and regularly thrashed by perfumista bloggers the world over. And finally, each has a bottle concept. Will Boadicea move next (as did Bond) to add new interest to their standard bottle, perhaps by inserting Swarovski crystals into the interstices of their Celtic pewter latticework? Only time will tell.

Until then, I have to say that WARRIOR is a pretty flat leather perfume, in both senses of "pretty", all notes considered. There is an ever-so-brief oriental opening, but the flowers? Wow, they were literally crushed to death by the heavy leather. To my nose, this is a blunt instrument, not nearly so nice as reformulated CABOCHARD. Désolée.
