Well here is my feeble attempt at describing this fragrance. After a second wearing here it goes. The liquid is quite thick, oily and true green. Immediately you pick up the pines, junipers, conifers, firs, etc. The maple syrup is unmistakable. Moments later up comes the smoke, frankincense and birch tar. This all starts smoldering creating a bonfire effect. This is all within the first 5 minutes and wafting quite strongly.
After sometime the artemisia finally comes out of hiding. Smells literally like you have taken a leaf and crushed it with your fingers. Pungent but herbal and a tad sweet. The animal hide comes forth. Rough and raw leather. I keep thinking I get a spicy clove now and again. There are points of this fragrance that briefly reminded me of a hint of marijuana Or it just could have been my neighbor. Ha ha. You can sense raw vetiver.
Now after an hour or so it is calming down and quite reminds me of the whole neighborhood mowing their lawn while still a tad dewy. The evergreen resins, smoke and syrup is still present but quite closer to a skin scent.
After 4 hours I still detect it as a skin scent. I had a quick flashback of the original polo with incense. The quality is amazing. This was with a very small dab to my wrist and pressing other wrist together. I imagine one to two full dabs with the bottle stopper on some pulse points and WOW, it would be strong.
There you have it. I do admit when I get to moving around the oil has no problems coming back to life on my skin. Kind of a Fille de Aiguilles meets Lonestar Memories.
I have Cilice as well by Euphorium Brooklyn will have to give it a couple of wearings too.
