Hold onto your hats because this one can do some acrobatics. Sweet, purple plums swing through the air with a scandalously rich, black-as-night black cherry. What follows is a somersaulting mélange of cool and warm spices, bursting bouquets of rose and tuberose made even more wild by a hedonistic checklist of all the amber, vanilla, leather, and sugary musk probably allowed by law. It’s a floral, it’s a gourmand, it’s a leather, it’s an oud, it’s outrageously layered and completely mesmerizing. A fine trail of incense snakes behind the uproarious procession, a meditative finale to the complexities of infinity.
Notes include cherry, plum, saffron, pink pepper, cardamom, oud, leather, sandalwood, rose, tuberose, vetiver, tobacco leaf, amber, vanilla sugar, tonka, and musk.
